Keith Code & Co. have been doing the Superbike School so long that they have it perfected. Very professional crew and great teaching format. I highly recommend this school to anyone interested in making their bikes faster, instead of getting some exhaust cans, or whatever mod you're drooling over.
Level 1 consists of five classroom sessions followed by riding drills with instructors in charge of 3 students. The riding is followed by a debriefing with the instructor/coach.Then it's back to the classroom.
Here's a list of the drills.
1. Throttle Control: the rider's basic job while cornering is operating the throttle, the motorcycle's most used control.
Riding for the session is limited to 4th gear, no brakes.
2. Turn Points: every corner has a turn entry position putting you in control of that turn.
Riding format is 3rd and 4th gears, no brakes.
3. Quick Turning: learning the feeling and action of steering your bike quick enough - when you need to or want to.
Riding format is 3rd and 4th gears, very light braking.
4. Rider Input: persuading your bike to cooperate with you is mostly a matter of technique; the less busy you are the better.
Riding format is three gears, light braking.
5. Two-Step Turning: gathering and processing visual information in cornering begins a moment before you enter a corner.
The format for this riding session is full gears and brakes.
Off-track drill: steering the bike by lightly pushing on the bars with no other input.
