Which Level?


Recommended Posts

Planning to attend the June 6, 2010 school at Barber. Should I start at Level I or II?

 

I ride a 2008 250 Ninja and have particpated in about a half dozen track days and two WERA races. My lap times at Barber last weekend were between 1:58 - 2:00.

 

Don't want to jump past Level I...just looking to get started in the correct level. I have a lot to learn....

Davissa;

Your describing a common misconception regarding the Superbike School; that Level I can be skipped over because of prior rider experience. It can't. Just like you can't remove one leg of a stool and still expect to be able to sit on it, level I is necessary to move onto Level II and so on.

 

Every student including professional racers who have attended the School all go through Level I first. Since you are planning on attending CSS/Barber you will understand it once you're there. BTW, it is always helpful if you have read the Twist of the Wrist books and/or watched the DVD because it will give you a better foundation in the structured approach that Keith Code has developed over the past three decades.

 

Good luck and let us know how it goes for you.
