Each level puts together an entire area of riding. Each is a complete and integrated package of technical skills. The levels are not structured according to a rider's experience. Each of the packages of skills is broken down into easily understood bite sized chunks. Read about them below.
The California Superbike School’s course curriculum works. We are the number one school in all of the 13 countries where we operate. Please do not come to us for an expensive trackday. We are dedicated to your improvement; we are professionals; we will ensure you learn the skills.
We provide a logical, step-by-step, structured approach for you to achieve your riding goals. We will help you define those goals and provide you with the tools to make progress towards them. This is not PR or hype, we guarantee it and we’re the only school who does.
Level I addresses the six most common errors riders, from novice to world-class racers, make and why. You will realize exactly how they have stopped or slowed your own improvement as a rider. There will be a technical briefing for each one including on and off track drills that put you in control of them. Your assigned coach for the day will observe and correct any difficulties you are having with each drill. You will be coached as an individual, according to your skill level. You will improve.
Students often comment that Level I answers questions they didn’t even know they had.
Confidence and control are shattered when riders experience vague fears about turn entry speed, finding good lines, bike stability and their own rider-induced errors. These fears and uncertainties are addressed and replaced with confident and precise bike control. Within the boundaries of good sense and safety, the speed you ride is up to you.
We are very particular about our track course control, we do have rules. Chief among them is: riders may not interfere with each other’s progress and safety. Because of this, after twenty-nine years and over ten million miles of track riding, the school has a phenomenal safety record.
It is no secret that Keith was the first to tackle the problems of vision and riding and the drills he’s developed the drills to handle them. Once an understanding is achieved of what a motorcycle can and should do for you from the Level I drills, we move on step-by-step, to sharpen the visual skills. Level II is all about solutions to problems we face with our eyes.
The school’s visual drills put you in control of the road. We define our visual enemies and how to overcome them. Everyone knows that target fixation is dangerous. How bad is it? With logical, step-by-step procedures, your eyes become precision instruments. The results of Level 2 are amazing. Riders lose their claustrophobia in corners and gain the freedom to really use the roads they ride.
As with Level I, there are five technical briefings and five track sessions during the day.
LEVEL III addresses 5 more proactive technical points on riding. We thoroughly cover how you interface with the bike, your body position choices and how these can affect the cornering process. Once rider position and stability are completely understood it paves the way for line selection options you may never have imagined. All five of the exercises done in Level III are indispensable tools which will put you in control of any set of twisties that exists. The final exercise called Attack Angles will give you a whole new approach to cornering because you'll have a plan.
LEVEL IV takes a completely different turn. We ask you what needs to be improved.
Now that a rider has spent at least three levels with us and discussed and practiced over 15 different riding skills, we design a program uniquely for that rider. At Level IV we take a very focused look at your skills and tie up the loose ends to your satisfaction.
Level IV is custom-designed for each rider. Aside from their assigned on-track coach, we also provide a highly trained consultant. Throughout the day he will coordinate with your on-track coach and give you one-on-one attention on your riding.
Depending on track circumstances and bike availability, Level IV students can be given an extra ride to work out their individual program steps.
