Daaaaaamn that would be fun. I’ve been riding since 2004, thankfully have never crashed, but I have bout 1.5cm of chicken strips on my rear tire.... not that one wants to drag knees on public roads, but you get the drift.

I always wanted Xenu to teach me to ride. I did this school a long time ago one thing to note is that you have to do Level 1 no matter your skill level even if you are a pro rider, the pricing structure is a like Scientology you have to pay to go to the next level. Most schools will look at your riding skill and set you where you need to be to improve. I liked the drills and class section and did get a little bit out of it but I would never do it again so many better schools. Being stuck in the level 1 group and having semi pro riders in the group because they are forced to be in the slowest group flying past you upset a lot of people. You see people freaking out because they arent used to even being on the track. So my biggest issue the structure of the school. I highly recommend CLASS and Z2 track days I got way way more out of those teachers.

When I went to a race,I had to attend a brief school and the punch,the quick turn as they call it,I really took to it that punch of the bar to turn and bring the bike over into the corner was a technique that I ,well it was the only thing I was shown plus a slow ride,lap,to give you reference points and body movement as you came thru braking areas,so if you are in 100 percent record mode,that's great if not school is,superbike school a notch of safety in your belt,especially if your gonna do track days,the race track is so much more fun than the street no cars,they sweep and clean it for you,no intersections man hole covers,stops signs... Etc

I wonder what happens if you wipe out and damage/destroy one of those bikes? Do you pay for it or is that included in the school fee since it's a high possibility scenario. Anyone?

There are damage options, in the UK a non-refundable £85 which reduces the most you pay to £180, or pay a £1,200 returnable deposit.

That what we do in shouthern ontario canada as well. If youre a league rider then obviously you adjust your bike, but for the casual track rider like myself, we are just supposed to removed any lose materials such as my wrist band over my break fluid reservoir, remove my battery trickler wire, tape or remove mirrors and lights. Cant have missing screws from the bike such as fairings

Great advice at the end, I did level 1 and 2 back to back not long ago and got SO much out of it (in fact the next time I went to the track I managed to get my knee down for the first time) but a friend I went with said it was a waste of money and she learnt nothing. When I asked her if she did the drills her response was "What drills?" haha enough said.

Every bike rider from newbie to seasoned need to do a level 1. level 2 and 3 should be after a few trackways - the 2 and 3 classes cover too much for newer riders. Level 4 is custom and I usually do one a year to tune and overcome some of the plateaus from track.

After doing CSS everyone keeps telling me I turn in too late

Vor year

WholesaleTurbos arguably late tip in actually restricts your vision through the corner (e.g. Druids at Brands you have to have a hyper mobile neck to look at the apex) if you tip in late. It also opens up the inside line for enthusiasts to barrel in on the anchors and grab the line. Don't get me wrong, I am still trying to find the approach that would work for me and some corners (mostly left handers for some reason) are better than others with later turning.

It demonstrates a few things 1 how late you can turn in using countersteering 2 how early you can get on the gas 3 it opens up the corner so you can see further earlier Its a learning tool to get you to think and to build confidence. Having said that you can use super late tip in points and go around the outside of people on track days. Racing is slightly different as the other guys have more confidence in their front end and can just block pass you, park at the apex and take your line. A later turn in will always give you more line options, its up o you to exploit them

Fast Bikes Magazine given that it is a school I went with what was taught and made a habit of turning in late. I guess I didn't know enough by myself when attending the school to experiment more whereas your level is already pretty high. Now I am working on "unlearning" that and playing with different turn-in points and lines (I think they do that drill in level 2 if I remember correctly). Another thing which will be a matter for a different discussion is CSS body position - Crafar teaches to sit "on the tank" in the corner whereas CSS's mantra is to sit back at all times to allow for easier movement. I struggled with faster riding until I broke with CSS's approach to body positioning. I think CSS' stuff needs to be balanced by attending other training like MotoVudu for best results.

I've done all 4 levels. I did level 1 about 2 years ago now. I'm now racing. And I agree their tip in markers are quite deep. I ride at PI and at one corner, where their X would be for the tip in is in a ridiculous spot. Having said that, the problem with new riders is they tip in too early. And I believe the way they teach, for tip in, is to over compensate. For example. If they put the tip in points at the correct spots, a new rider who tips in too early, and starts hitting that X, will still tip in too early if the X was taken away.

The turn in points are more to show the benefits of quick-turn etc, then it's down to us to tailor what we learned to how we ride. You don't have to turn in 'late', however, do you feel comfortable turning when you do?

The 4th is where you work one-on-one with an instructor on anything you want to, or, they can see where you still need some work and suggest what to work on. When we did it long ago (nearly ten years!), it was actually very useful for road riding it turned out, and am still using the style we figured out today on the road - and it came about by trying something very different for track which we quickly twigged wouldn't work well on circuit so moved to other things. But by applying what we had developed there on the road, out of sheer curiosity, it was amazing! So it came about almost by accident, but it also wouldn't have happened without that one-one-one coaching, either.
