  1. Keith you've expressed this as only you can. Thank you - it says everything I feel whenever I throw a leg over my bike. At 81 I still become giddy when 

    I/m going for a ride. I didn't start riding until I was 50. I've never stopped and don't plan on stopping until I/m unable to ride any longer. 

    Thanks so much for all the pleasure your sessions have added to my thrill of riding. I can say without hesitation I/m riding better now than I've 

    ever ridden. I can say without hesitation I owe much of it to you and your incredible program and staff.

    Got a suggestion we pin this topic, so here we go.


    Level 1: everyone starts there. Not because it's for beginners, but it has the most critical information first. All the top pros that go through the school start with this level. This doesn't equate to beginning, or you will have to go slowly, it's more key foundation material.


    We often get the upper level students (been through level 4 a number of times) requesting to go back through previous levels.


    Level 2 build upon 1, Level 3 upon 2, and Level 4 we create an individualized coaching program--which require the previous levels to fully grasp.


    Hope this helps!





    PS: if it doesn't, post your questions, or call the office.

    I will support tge level idea. Having taken 1 and 2 a number of years apart I found my riding has continued to improve as I put those tools to work. The eyes looking well ahead looking through the turns etc. very ready for 3 and 4

    The information is definitely still relevant. There have been revisions to the books, with additions and updates, mostly having to do with the changes in the motorcycle features available today such as traction control and ABS. 

    One easy and fun way to brush up on the info is to watch A Twist of the Wrist II video, which is now available for rent or purchase on Amazon Prime Video. It goes through a ton of info from the books and has some terrific comparison videos illustrating the effects of different line choices, body position, and steering rates, and has great CGI animations of what happens to the tire during countersteering, and close-ups of suspension movement, it is a really well done video. 

    Glad to hear you'll be back at school soon! What track did you choose?

    PS - bring those original print date books to school and have Keith sign them! :)

    Indeed I will. The Ridge July 9 and 10. 

  4. HI I've attended two levels, and will be at The Ridge for level 3 in July 2021 

    For the first time I/m bringing my own bike. It uses a 180 rear and 120 front - I want to purchase tires and have them installed a day before my day at the school. Is this 

    workable ? I remember from a few years ago you did sell tires and have someone there to install them - True ?
