  • Have you attended a California Superbike School school?
    Yes
  1. I have ridden the No BS bike in the school and found that it is a very effective tool for teaching that countersteering it makes a very good point that while other inputs are effective for assisting in the cornering process, you have to countersteer whether you know it or not.
  2. Here is a pic of me going really slow at Hallett in Oklahoma.
  3. I agree. I just bought an SV650 which is also a great bike to learn cornering on. It only has about 70HP, but I was running on people's tire all of the time. My primary bike is a CBR1000 which I bought a couple of years before I even knew about track days. I love how with the SV I have to actually learn about momentum and drive and not just be handicapped by depending on HP to get my lap times down. Just like the 250, i do have to get the suspension upgraded.
  4. Me and one of my friends attended the school at Barber and had a blast. I have been riding since I was 14, but have only 3 years experience on sport style motorcycles. I learned more in those few hours, than I have learned my whole time riding and reading books. One of the biggest things I learned was the power of counter steering and relaxing as opposed to unconsciously or consciously muscling the handlebar. I go to Hallett Motor Racing Circut in Oklahoma often and am pretty slow as I am new to track riding(1 year). I had a huge barrier about entering corners at any speed besides slow. The no brakes drill and quick turning along with great coaching by Jeffro helped me drop 7 seconds off of my time at Hallett, when I went to my next track day 1 week later. I even drug both knees and did not freak out! I still have a lot of learning to do and plan to go back to CSS every chance I get for as long as the wife allows me.
