cornering school - August 10, 2009, 09:38 PM

So I want to have someone tell me what I am doing wrong and get my body position on track. What is a good cornering school for a rookie. I am doing my first trackday 9/12 so maybe something happening before that or close after.

What schools and something within 3 hours hopefully. Also if anyone else is doing a school I got a trailer I can fit another bike on


I am ready to meet my maker but is my maker ready for the ordeal of meeting me...

I'm going to do CSS at VIR on 8/31 I think there are dates for the 31st-3rd check out the website. www.superbikeschool.com this will be my second time going and Keith and his instructors are great.

Buying a sportbike to go the speed limit (which you do not do in your car) is like buying a condom to look at it.

Do you buy a condom to look at it? No you buy it to fuck.
Thank you Rossi

This is all you'll need, worth every penny, you'll learn a ton, and its a great way to learn the basics, be safe, and be smooth, I did it back in March before hitting any track days, racing, etc and it was a great experience...

thanks yes I will see whats available. I feel very comfortable on the bike but know that there are so many little things to tweak to not only make me a better and faster rider, but able to be smoother and have even more fun on the street and track.
