  • Have you attended a California Superbike School school?
    Yes, Level I-III in India in January 2011
  1. Thks a lot ! I had truck loads of fun. Of course I remember you--one of my students! You really rode well, it was a pleasure to work with you. Dylan
  2. I went to the India School this past weekend. Great Experience, awesome !! Cannot believe the improvement I made over the weekend - in confidence, technique and speed. I was riding a Ninja 250 (I was the one with the Jorge Lorenzo Moon Man Helmet) Cobie, Lou and Dylan were my coaches for Levels I, II and III. Thanks a lot guys.
  3. I ride a stationary bicycle mostly to get my weight down. (used to before I broke my collarbone) 15 miles a day - 5 days a week. (~60 mins daily over changing terrain - about as much as it can change on a stationary bike )
  4. For me, it was probably a case of too much too soon. I was near about the maximum lean angle when I suddenly and strangely felt I was well.. too slow. What followed next was a very fast roll on (which was smooth but fast - uhh, now I'm confused), the rear slid, gripped again and I highsided (broke my collarbone) Rgds, Vaibhav
  5. Great to hear about Andy's progress. Wish that the rest of the recovery process is even quicker.
  6. A couple of pics from my first couple of trackdays ever...(This is from Level I and II's in India in January.) Riding a Kawasaki Ninja 250. (my first bike)
  7. Wishing a speedy recovery to Andy. I wish he gets back to full health as soon as possible. Best Wishes, Vaibhav
  8. It was an awesome three days for me. I would love to go back to school as soon as possible (even if it was as soon as this week) Thanks Darren for the great feedback.
  9. First picture sent to me by a friend. The gain in confidence, technique and skills at the school is simply mindblowing. There is still a lot of/huge scope for improvement and I already want to go to the school again. As soon as possible. Will post more pictures as they come through from the official photographer.
  10. Hi, Did Level 1,2 and 3 in India this weekend. To be precise " I did things I never thought I could do." The drills were so so much fun to do. My body was getting tired by the end of Level III, but my mind refused to stop. Special thanks to all the guys from the school. I was lucky enough to interact directly with Keith Code ("Guru" : Got my TOTW books signed ) Andy Ibbott (Level III body position, great to work with) Steve Brouggy (Level I classroom sessions - Great teacher ) Darren Sweetman (Darren was one of the guys who helped make my mind up to go to school (via the forum), he was also my Level III coach, was awesome working with you) Glenn (My Level II coach, helped me greatly with apexes and RP's) Appanna (My Level I coach, corrected a lot of very basic mistakes) Dylan Code (Level II classroom sessions - Made complex things appear so simple) Last but not the least Gary (Makes a tough job look simple) Was riding a Kawasaki Ninja 250. I will try to post pictures as I get them.
  11. Thanks for the help guys. I have registered for Level I, II and III this year.
  12. Thanks for the inputs guys. Much appreciated. However, considering the low frequency of track days available here, would it make sense to repeat Level 1 and Level 2 immediately just for the sake of more practice. Rgds, Vaibhav
  13. Hi, Does it make sense to repeat the levels immediately (a couple of days) after doing them. (for more practice, tracktime, re-learning stuff you missed etc) Also, for a first time student which of the below options is better. 1. All levels (1-4) at one go. 2. Levels 1-2 this year and 3-4 next year. Thanks for the help. Rgds, Vaibhav
  14. Sad to hear that Cobie. Let's catch up sometime soon.
  15. Thanks for the info Darren. Will definitely try my best to be there. See you at the track Rgds, Vaibhav
