  1. Hi Cobie,

    I have a couple of questions now that I've completed a 2-Day CSS camp.

    • When I register for another 2-Day, does that mean I'm coming in as a Level 3, and how does that differ as far as course/track instruction?
    • I just added a Ninja 1000 to my garage and I'd like to get to know that bike better next spring/summer when the riding season comes around. Can I ride that bike in a CSS class? Is that limited to a 1-Day session?

      HA! I guess all I had to do was look at the website again. I just answered my second question. Duh. I guess I'm still more inclined to stay in the 2-day camp scenario. There's just so much more track time considering I have to travel to every track where the school operates. The 1-day would be hard to justify given travel time AND riding my bike to get there.

  2. Hah, Red Baron, so now you are coming clean, Keith did put you up to it :).
  3. We need to have the new fleet firmly available before selling the current one. Looks like that is not far off, the bikes are in the country, but not yet delivered to our local dealer. Best thing would be to contact JJ (our chief mechanic)and he'll put you on the list of interested buys). His email is: Jeremiah Morrison (chiefmechanic@superbikeschool.com). Best, Cobie
  4. "Push" might be not the exact words I would use. Part of the technique is to use more of the torso, but it also requires bracing with the outside leg (into the tank) so you are also gaining the advantage of the leverage going across the body (as opposed to pushing on the inside leg and arm at the same time). Make sense?
  5. There are a few points to that technique...one that is covered on page 85 is that it's easier to steer.
  6. And does it make it harder for the others to get around you...
  7. If the arms are locked, does that throw more weight on the front? If they are locked, does it allow the front to correct for the imperfections?
  8. If you weren't excited and a bit nervous, you'd be a...non-human :).
  9. Great to see the responses on this. Some years ago a coach missed T-boning a car at an intersection. This boulevard had a median, and tall curbing on the street-side edges. The car pulled across the median and then stopped in his lane. He steered quickly right, but had to also steer it back left (or hit that tall curbing). Both the visual skill (of not target fixing) and able to turn it quickly, are practiced skills, saved his bacon that day. It's a recommendation for simply getting onto a track now and again. Practicing riding technique in a controlled environment is ben
  10. If the throttle begins too early, before the bike is fully leaned over, AND on line, where will the line go?
  11. They are pretty nice, really can take one's time
  12. Just checking...is there something you want clarified here?
