  • Have you attended a California Superbike School school?
    Booked for June 10/11 2013 Streets of Willow
  1. I did the 2 day camp June 10 and 11 2013 at Willow. The school, Instructors and course control were professional and ran the entire event flawlessly. After all my years of road riding (Since late 70's) I still found every workshop and drill to be great learning experiences which improved my overall riding and confidence. This was also my first venture on a track. I would recommend doing the Body position/Lean bike exercise as early as you can on your Level 2 class so that you will not be tired. On my 2 day camp without realizing what I was doing, I basically leaned my body to the inside of the bike but kept my butt on the seat and knees clamped to the gas tank. This I found was taxing on the body, consequently having left the lean bike exercise till late on day 2, I found I felt too tired to experiment with body position on the track. One of my co-riders Richard did the lean /body position bike exercise on day 1 and said that applying good body position left him with way more energy at the end of day 2. I would also recommend buying the pictures taken by the CSS photographer. The quality of the pictures are amazing plus you will learn a lot about what you are doing with body position from the pictures as well. Hope this helps. Paul
  2. Thanks everyone for the helpful replies. I booked the Oxford inn. I noticed the school is running on Sunday June 9th. I arrive before noon the same day. Would it be possible to check it out as a spectator or helper on Sunday. If not I understand. Looking forward to my first track experience. Regards Paul.
  3. Hello everyone, i am Paul from Ireland but have lived in Austin Texas since 1999. I have had bikes in Ireland starting in the late 70's on and off thru late 90's. Started back on bikes in Texas in 2004 with a Suzuki RF900 followed by 05CBR00RR, 08 Hayabusa, 11 ninja1000(old guy sport bike) and currently ride a 2012 Kawasaki Concours1400. I am an avid fan of motorcycle track and road racing (MotoGP, AMA, IOM TT, North West 200, Ulster Grand Prix). Recently enjoyed 2013 motogp in Austin. COTA is a beautiful track ,weather was great and event was well organized. Attending CSS has been on my wish list for years. I will be attending levels 1&2 two day camp at Streets of Willow June 10&11th. It will be my first time on a track also. Have my flight booked to LAX and rental car. Anyone got recommendations for hotels? To prep for the school I have read TOTW and TOTW2, I also have the DVDs also and look forward to the school. Also doing cycling to build cardio for the track. Cheers from Texas. Paul
