    Hi there life long learners! If you happen to be in the NY area, OTRA Motorcycle School, an MSF certified and NYSMSP licensed motorcycle training school is hosting Corner College, an advanced cornering clinic, in Selden, NY at the Suffolk Community College campus. The date is Saturday September 9th (next Saturday!). This is not a track day, we will be in a wide open parking lot to focus on specific cornering techniques in a structured format with off-cycle coaches providing real-time and constant feedback to a small group of riders (maximum of 8 riders for the day.) This is a unique format developed by myself with OTRA to address specific skills that sportbike riders tend to misunderstand, to reduce the interaction of factors to occur that lead to crashes, on the track or the street. This is an excllent compliment to track days and track oriented schools, like CSS. Since the format is very different from the track we tend to break people out of ruts and plateaus in their learning paths that they have been struggling with. Past students have commented about how much fun it was to take a different approach and how much more they learned than they expected. That always warms my heart as someone who is also always willing to learn and grow. If you are interested or curious please call Vanessa our office manager (she’s also a certified MSF coach!) at 631-862-RIDE (7433). You are also welcome to come down and watch if you want to see if this is for you, perhaps for a future class! We welcome All to the celebration of motorcycle knowledge. “Learning is a journey, not a destination” Warmest Regards, Tom https://www.facebook.com/intuiTom https://www.facebook.com/On-The-Road-Again-118099454912957

    This is John Lee by the way... the one that ran into a little hiccup on my level 3 day. You guys went way above and beyond what was necessary and just wanted to say thank you again. Laura you were totally awesome looking out for me without hesitation. I noticed after reviewing some of my lap footage that between lvl 1+2 earlier in the month I didn't bother opening up the bike on the straights and just focused on the drills and cornering; and by level 4 I improved dramatically (on average 20% faster on the corners); so while in lvl 2 I would hit 140mph on the main straight in lvl 4 I stayed in 3rd gear 9k rpm even on the straight not trying to speed the straights and just focus on the corners and yet my overall lap times were faster; something both Laura and Pete pointed out. Definitely noticeable on the streets too. I'll post my personal riding issue in the Student Success Stories Still have a long ways to go but you guys gave me a great head start; I will be practicing until the next time. Thanks to my coaches along the way: Level 1 - Brian Level 2 - Connor Level 3 - Laura Level 4 - Pete You guys rock.
