  1. Hi MM, Changing the coolant over to a water and corrosion inhibitor mix is a recommendation for our events. ie, not a hard and fast rule. You can use a coolant or water for the schools you have booked. The reason it is recommended to change the coolant out is because in the very rare case that a motorcycle drops it's cooling fluid, water will evaporate on its own, and coolant leaves a slippery residue on the track which requires cleaning. Again, that is a very rare occuarrance. I can't remember ever seeing it at a school. Maybe a handful of times at race meetings. It's because of it's
  2. Cobie, There's a video of Kenny riding that flat tracker. If you haven't seen it here it is. It's borderline ridiculous. Rossi's reaction says it all I think.....
  3. It's definitely nice to watch riders who make it look easy. Efficient. Nothing more than what's needed.
  4. Hey Cobie, Cool topic. Firstly Red, what can I say mate. Thank you so much for your comments. It's always nice to get an acknowledgment for something you work hard on, but particularly so in this case as there's an obserevd application of Keith's tech. That means a lot to me. It (the tech) is, after all, the ONLY reason I'm able to ride the way I do I could list tonnes of guys I like to watch ride on track, but my favourite is probably a guy named Mike Jones. He's a student of ours, has been for a number of years now. I've ridden with him on track a lot over the years, whether it
  5. Hi Sean, For the front to tuck whilst you were rolling on the throttle, some other input would have had to occured ie, a steering input, weight in the bars, a checking or rolling off of the throttle etc etc.... I don't have the book in front of me, but Twist of the Wrist II covers the technical side of this point in a chapter titled "Steer for the rear". Do you have a copy of that book to refer to?
  6. Makes for great pub banter a topic like this - because we could never know. I agree, Keith would have the best view of this, as he does with most things motorcycling
  7. This has been something that I've been very interested in over the past 18months or so. What type of physical characteristics most aid a rider, and how does one go about getting them. I would suggest that what a motorcyclist requires from their body is somewhat similar to that of a martial artist. I think Bruce Lee would have had the perfect physique for road racing! Fast, light, balanced, and flexible, with excellent co ordination. Broadly I would steer away from any heavy weights or weight machines, and towards funtional movements. As Level 3 no doubt showed you the legs and core are
  8. What Pete said. Definatley the word "Ninja" brings back memories of posters in my mates Dad's garage when I was young.
  9. Hi Guys, Mike3000 - What is he doing that is "exactly the opposite" of what we think?
  10. Yep. Rainey was student. Doohan's name gets brought up pretty often in this type of discussion, and for good reason. At first glance you say "His style was way different to what Code teaches", and if you were looking only at the way he used his body, you'd be totally justified in saying so. In fact, with regards to body positioning, there are tonnes of examples of champions who looked quite different on the bike, although there a less and less these days. Elias is perhaps one of the only current world level riders who looks REALLY different. The riders body position is the most easil
  11. Great topic, and one I can totally relate to. My riding wouldn't be half as good, nor my understanding of the CSS tech half as complete, if it weren't for the thousands of hours spent on a dirt bike. Period. Probably more key than anything, it was the dirt bike that really trained me to turn the gas on whenever things got ugly, and that has saved my bacon so many times on the track I can't even count.
  12. Welcome! Sure you'll find all sorts of cool stuff and people round here.
  13. That's a unique view Stuman. Thanks for putting it up.
