One Year Goes- A New Year Comes

Hello riders, students, friends, partners and fans.
Here we are again- reached the end of a year and facing a new one. This was the busiest year for Superbike-Coach ever. Besides one class- ALL others have been booked up… all of them! Between our scheduled classes, I had to coach lots of 1on1 or small groups throughout the year so that I’m looking forward to a little holiday break now. But before I inform you about 2019, I want to thank my team for everything they do. I love these guys.
OK, I’m all excited for 2019 because new programs are coming- and old ones are getting even better. We welcome new sponsors and extending relationships with existing partners, which means that they bring ‘Student Goodies’. The SBC website got cleaned up, and the mobile page has been refreshed. Right now we’re working hard on our schedule for 2019, and fills up already. All news are described in those boxes below…

NEW Cruiser rider training on a race track?
Oh yes, because parking lot cone drill efficiency is both questionable and boring. Every motorcycle is subject to the same laws of physics: gravity, weight, G-forces, and centrifugal forces. The ‘Cruiser Rider Class’ is designed to hone skills for daily street riding on heavy bikes like Harleys, Goldwings, and all kinds of touring bikes. The dates are:
————————————————————————————————————-
NEW Body Positioning Class
You want it hard and bad… there it is! Full class on 3 levels for Sportbike, racers and track riders. Get the full scoop, and not just to look good for a damn photo. Coach Can provides all the tricks which MotoGP racers are using to master their bikes. Drills, demos, classroom and plenty of riding time on our track for only $139. That includes track fees, water and snacks and even sport photography. This class is only ones per year and spots are already going. Secure one!

The dates:

Wheelie Course fills up already
And again, we’ll also run our popular Wheelie Course in 2019- three times to be more specific. We welcome rider from all over the world in Stockton on our track where we deliver more than anyone else. Besides free video and photography by Dean Lonskey, we’ll bring Supermoto rentals, wheelie bars, a wheelie mini bike, and a wheelie machine.

Last time: Suspension Workshop & Track Time
Yes, for the last time we’ll run our workshop on this fun little track, the Little 99 Raceway. Take the chance and get your bike dialed in to you, and in-between you go on the track to feel the difference it makes. You can’t do wrong for only $99 bux, can you?! Come and have some track fun and learn something new about your ride- whatever that is!

Track Academy
…is designed for intermediate/advanced track riders and racers. Learn how to get past mental blocks and grow your skills by working side-by-side with a professional racer and coach. This class is fast-paced and for experienced riders, but you don’t need pre-experience with Superbike-Coach. Also Cornering School 1-3 graduates with track/racing ambitions are qualified to attend. Sign up promptly, because this class will only be taught once per year, and so it’s already filling!

Sideline Coaching
This is our track/racing program, developed to stay in your corner at test- or track day, or at your race. Coach Akkaya knows how to setup a race strategy, to motivate with the right words at the right time, and to ‘fight your demons’. Video, GPS and lap time analysis are rounding the sideline coaching up. There are no dates scheduled, but individually setup. Contact us.

CONTINUING ARTICLE: One Year Goes- A New Year Comes
I’m super excited about our new programs ‘Cruiser Rider Class‘ and the ‘Body Positioning Class‘, which addresses the needs of heavy duty motorcycle- and sport/track/racing orientated riders. All new dates are up for our flagship, the Cornering School followed by our Wheelie Course and the Knee Down class. We’ll add lot’s of Road Skill and Track Drill 1on3’s until February, while you won’t find those as 1on1. These, and as well as Basic Rider and Sideline Coaching are individually scheduled. Oh yea, and we’ll have the ‘Suspension Workshop & Track Time‘ event only ones more, so you better get on that roster soon.
Furthermore we are stoked about our new sponsors and welcome Continental Tires and Moto-Gear to the Superbike-Coach family. We will introduce them more detailed in the January issue. I’m very happy that the passionate guys from TechSpec Gripster Grip, Forma Boots USA and Dynojet Research have extended the relationship with us. Love you guys!
Happy New Year to everyone!
Thanks to all students and fans for your loyalty. Hope to see you again next year, as I hope to meet finally YOU too

Setup Workshop & Track Time about to removed

Nothing is perfect in life- nothing. But I want to share with you why I am personally a little disappointed in regard one of our programs, the ‘Setup Workshop & Track Time’, which is a hell of a opportunity to get a bike dialed in- suggestions on upgrades based on needs- and especially a chance to get up to huge technical issues pointed out. Besides this, it allows the participant to go on the track to feel the difference of a dialed in suspension- or just to have some fun. Here are some stories…

I remember welcoming one of meanwhile thousands of students to our previous ‘Setup Workshop & Track Time’ class. He proudly showed to me his ‘new baby’, a used CBR 600 RR. He was just wondering that the bike makes weird noise under hard acceleration and that it doesn’t move as much as it could. We’ve diagnosed that all teeth on the rear sprocket were shredded down by 70%, and that the chain is jumping over under acceleration! Workshop = A+

A other rider has a chain slag which not just damaged the swing arm, but also could cause a crash if the chain would come off and gets stuck. Another one I’ve seen rides a chain which never seen grease, and all links were pointing zick zack. Workshop = A+

A tiny girl on a sportbike rides around with a cracked handlebar. Only a question of time when this thing runs away from her under braking. That her throttle just stays where you let it go didn’t seem to worry her much. The grip slid down and over the bar end, and that caused the stuck. Workshop = A+

But also out there on the street or track I am going, and to meet riders… I’ve seen so many issues. Stuck throttle cables- loose or broken brake levers- rotted tires- worn- squared- or my absolute “favorite”… a aftermarket brake lever which touches the throttle cable housing, so that there is only about 30% of braking power! A Workshop here would be A+

Trust me, with this I truly don’t want to make anyone look bad- but truth and honesty is it what this needs. If I would not- how can I make you see how important a ‘Setup Workshop & Track Time’ can be for one?! So no, I’m not making fun on their backs- we actually believe that we’ve saved some lives with this class.

My disappointment here is that I know that this is good for the riders- my main goal. We are always trying to make things like that fun, educational, and efficient for an affordable ticket price. Unfortunately not too many take advantage of it, so that we can’t make this work on our end.  So this will be probably the last time were we offer this program:

Suspension Workshop & Track Time, at Little 99 Raceway on 04/07/2019, 33 spots are left, $99.00

(Includes workshop, track fee, water/snacks, photography, professionals)

New SBC Website Features

Besides new pictures and video we haven’t changed too much on the SBC website design. Some new slides and colors you might find also, but underneath the hood- that’s where lots of stuff has been changed. The biggest one is that you can do multiple bookings now, so a shopping cart system and login area which also gives you more overview what you’ve booked.

We added new programs, the ‘Body Positioning Class‘ and the ‘Cruiser Rider Class’. Also a new sponsor area and our ‘Student Goodies‘. Also the schedule and the Coach area got cleaned up for a better navigation throughout the website. I hope you like it.

Especially our mobile website has been changed a lot, so check it out.

Customized Leather Suits by Moto Gear

I’m excited. Just got a peek on my new race suit. Moto Gear is a new sponsor to Superbike-Coach. Their profession is to fabricate fully customization leather suits, so not just custom sizing or “you can color this patch” kinda thing. Logos, design, special preferences… all available for a reasonable price!
The kangaroo leather and air vent holes are making this suit light and a breeze to wear. That doesn’t mean you give up on protection. Kangaroo leather is more flexible and doesn’t rip as quick as cow leather. That should also tell you something about the comfort. Thee guys will have a discount for my students (will be on the website soon)
