    Race Report

    Great job Will. Sorry I couldn't stay for the whole weekend. The bike is almost fixed as am I. I am gonna wait 'til after VIR and pick up some spares from some AMA guys I know and I should be good to go. Thanks for all of your help.

    Race Report

    Great job Will!! Wish I could've stayed through 'til Sunday to watch you. But motorcycles need to be sold. I'll pick up that steering damper from you at the next event, I'll bring the cash you bring the hardware. See ya then. Jeff Baldwin #598

    Reference Points

    Stuman, Thank you very much! That was exactly what I was looking for. Perfectly explained with great detail. Much appreciated.

    Reference Points

    What things can be used as reference points and can you give me some examples at say, "Streets"? I've found it difficult in the Level 1 and 2 courses due to the giant X's on the ground and the rules against using brakes most of the time.

    Reference Points

    Kevin, I also wrote, "I wasn't complaining about the flow and progressive nature of the drills." Now just so there is no more confusion about my original question, I will post it once more. "What things can be used as reference points and can you give me some examples at say, "Streets"?"

    Reference Points

    Kevin, I wasn't complaining about the flow and progressive nature of the drills. I was only saying that I was having trouble learning new tracks (both level 1 and 2 were at tracks I'd never been to before) and, in level 2, I had trouble finding reference points when my only past examples were GIANT white X's. At the end of the day I still didn't use heavy braking, mostly because I'd been "spoken to" earlier and was afraid of being scolded again, plus I didn't have reference points for that. My worst fear when going to the school is not being able to ride all of the sessions for whatever reason.

    Cornering Sequence

    What is the correct sequence when coming into a turn? Is it like this? 1. Throttle on 2. Set up body position, pinch tank with knees 3. Throttle off 4. Brake/downshift to correct gear for exiting the corner 5. Quick turn 6. Throttle on (just a bit to stabilize the bike?) 7. Bring the bike out of the turn and accelerate Can one of the instructors correct me on this or add anything?

    Cornering Sequence

    Thanks Stuman. I was just looking at cornering with binoculars not a microscope...... yet.

    Cornering Sequence

    Have you been to the school? It's great! As I said above, I've only completed Levels 1 & 2.

    Cornering Sequence

    I know there is a lot more to it than that but this is the condensed version, most of which we covered in Levels 1 & 2. 6 should be: Roll throttle on in a steady continuous motion through the turn.
  12. Hodge, Have you guys done any 2004 ZX6RR's? If so, what do you recommend for suspension upgrades (ie. shock and fork work) for racing? Thanks in advance.

    Report: Superbike School Goes To Rio

    When's the next Rio CCS? I want in!!
  14. I just purchased one as well. I would be interested in set up too. Also, suspension upgrades mainly for the forks as everything I've read (AND felt) is that the suspension is really stiff. Maybe Will or the guys from GP can answer.

    Ninja Zx-10r 2004 Or Suzuki Gsrr-1000 2004?

    I sell motorcycles for a living and see this everyday. Do not... I repeat, DO NOT buy a liter bike for your first bike my friend. You are flirting with disaster. All of the current 600's will do 150+ and quarter miles in the 12's with an average rider. Best case, you don't crash and never become any better of a rider due to the fact you are always spending your attention on throttle control and none on any of the other actions of riding your motorcycle.
