Just back from a day with California Superbike School at The Ridge in WA. An excellent day. I met Keith and Dylan Code, many great instructors, and many nice, kind, helpful fellow students. The help and discussions I had with my classmates were just as valuable as the instruction and feedback from coaches. While we didn't cover braking in particular (I took the 1 day course), we did cover some equally important topics (throttle control, turn points, rate of turn, relaxation, and vision); all familiar concepts from the many books, videos, and blogs, but with focused practice immediately following the class and instant feedback from the coach, I learned some new things, and by the end of the day, I was going faster, felt safer, didn't sweat as much, and had more fun. All in all, a great day. I am not a track junkie and I ride road exclusively, but this was on my bucket list and I am glad I did it.
