  • Have you attended a California Superbike School school?
    Yes Levels 1-4
  1. My favorite track for coaching is Eastern Creek, Sydney, I also love to ride it. The track has lots of varying turns and elevation changes. Having two places to pull off track with a cut through from Turn 4 to Turn 9 to catch students makes it easier for time management. Second place for both coaching & first place for personal riding is Hampton Downs, New Zealand. This is a new track with heaps of grip and some great corners, turn one is a blind decending right hander at the end of the main straight, turn two and three are a right/left combination with the turn point for three just before the crest of a rise with an off camber exit. Four is a tight right and five a decreasing radius down hill left hander, six is the longest sweeping right I have entountered bringing you back onto the main straight. The straight rises up towards pit exit with a slight right hand kink at the top of the rise. To top it off there is a kicker at the top of the rise just to make things interesting. This makes up the national curcuit with the international circuit to be completed in around 18 months. A lap is around a minute & a bit so by days end your legs are talking to you. If anybody is keen for a trip to the South Pacific make sure you check out the New Zealand School website and come pay us a visit.

  3. Hi, my name is Ash, I'm a 44 yr old biker from down under. I have been riding motorcycles on the dirt on & off since my teens, on the road for the last 8 years & on the track for the past 3 years. Motorcycles are an obsession for me. I've owned 10 road bikes in the last 8 years. I currently have an 08 Hayabusa as my road bike, a GSXR750 I bought new and set up for track riding with Ohlins, yoshi race system, power commander etc. I am shortly going to purchase a kxf250 dirt bike. I have completed Levels 1-4 of the school curriculum and have found that my riding has improved dramatically by applying the skills. Being an older rider racing isn't a focus for me, although I enjoy a tussle with my mates on the track. My focus is on being smoother and consistant. Superbike School is now about to kick off in NZ at a track that is nearing completion, I was so thrilled with the school and the difference it has made to my riding that I applied for a try out to see if I have what it takes to be a trainee coach. This will allow me to integrate the skills, help out with the school getting established and share the skills with fellow bikers. Sounds like a win /win to me.
