  1. I can't remember where it was from or the exact wording (but it's definitely one from Keith ): 'Laps are like sheets of toilet paper, when you only have a few left, you have to make the most of them.'
  2. I just downloaded it on iBooks, perfect for travelling to flyaway Schools!
  3. Whenever we do a flyaway School, we end up riding someone else's bikes. Priority for all of us is to pack Stomp Grips for the Coach Bikes in our luggage. Two, maybe three, days on track all day is exhausting enough but the Stomps help no end. Given the choice, I wouldn't ride without them!
  4. Thanks for the feedback! We've all agreed we need to do this again, maybe before the season kicks off next year, will keep you posted. :-) Charlie Oakman from Fast Bikes came along in the morning and wrote this: http://m.fastbikesmag.com/2012/09/21/california-superbike-school-training-the-trainers/
  5. Hi Amit, welcome. You made the right decision to come to CSS, we will help you! We won't be bringing the Lean or Brake bikes with us but I assure you that you will have plenty to do and even more to think about on the School day. If you don't want to ride your own bike, have a word with Dave at dave@track-daze.co.za as he organises the event out there for us and I'm sure he'll point you in the right direction of a track bike hire company but frankly, if you're prepared to ride your bike on the streets of South Africa, riding it on a track will be easy!
  6. Looking forward to seeing you there!
  7. Hi Kwak, You'll have a good time with us at Silverstone I'm sure! Which date are you doing? Feel free to ask if you have any questions about the day, we want you to get the most out of it you can. All the best, Spidey (Deputy Chief Riding Coach, UK Branch)
  8. "they told me i need to enter the corner faster" OK, good, at least that identifies an are for improvement although more useful would be for them to give you an idea of how to achieve that? Lets take just one corner: How about if you could set your speed more accurately on the approach to that corner? How about if you knew every time, lap after lap, exactly where that corner started? How about if you could get your bike on line for that corner quicker than you do now? How about if you knew that when you were in that corner that the bike underneath you would have t
  9. Hi Buckie, Just out of interest, what level are you racing at and what happened at your first race to make you realise you needed some more skills?! Share your experiences! As for your enquiry, first, we are not a race school. We don't teach things like race starts, block passing, draughting etc. things you could reasonably expect from a 'race' school. What we are is a Cornering School so if you want to corner better, including getting the correct corner entry speed, we really can help! BUT be aware that this is not a sticking-plaster quick fix and there is no magic fairy dust
  10. Dae, feel free to drop me an email to spidey@superbikeschool.co.uk and we'll certainly see how we can accomodate you for a possible Level 2. I was, unfortunately, given very limited information about your condition before the School and was told you'd fill us in on the morning of the School which made me assume that there was nothing insurmountable about your condition. However, our aim is to give everyone the best experience possible at the School so if we can make a thorough plan for your Level 2, we can approach it fully armed ;-) All the best, Spidey
  11. Couple of options for you: Scott Leathers are made in the UK, they do have a made-to-measure service but they can also 'tweak' any of their own, off-the-peg suits to get a better fit. I've dealt with them in the past and found them very helpful. Here's a link: http://www.scottleathers.co.uk/default.asp Another option is to find something you like that fits you in length, then have it altered by a company like The Leather Workshop http://www.leather-workshop.co.uk/ . These people were recommended to me by the fantastic people at Scrubbers Leathers http://www.scrubbersleath
  12. Here's the latest from Donna: Andy has made remarkable progress over the 10 months following a massive stroke and has returned to work at the UK operation's Silverstone HQ. Andy's recovery to this date has been made possible by many factors including his own dogged determination and help from Neuro Phsyio's Jon Graham and Kirsten Good from PhysioFunction. "Andy is one of those most committed clients that I have had the pleasure of working with. His progress to date has been outstanding" said Jon. "He has set the ultimate challenge for himself and his therapists: to complete the Ma
  13. We've actually got a selection of Japanese 600s :-) Students bikes vary from Indian-made 125s to R1s, 'Blades and S1000s. India is a fast developing country. The Mahindra 125 GP bike made people realise that they are going to be a force to be reckoned with at the end of last year and I'm sure the team would love their own rider on it at the front too.
  14. When I told Pete that we had Enfields to ride the reply I got was "Never heard of them. Do they have traction control?"
