Annual Suspension Workshop & Track Time Class was a blast

Our annual Suspension Workshop & Track Time class was just great. All students were highly motivated to work with us on their bikes. Besides finding appropriate tire pressures, lever positions, pre load and other settings- we also found some issues needed to be fixed.

This program is beyond ‘good’. It gives you even a better understanding of your bike and riding. Hope to see you in 2021!

New Superbike-Coach Sponsor: GoMotoTrip Fairings

I was hell of skeptical, maybe even more as you are right now, because you might not just questioning the quality- but also because they are a sponsor of the Superbike-Coach Corp and that I would be obligated to say only good things about it. No no… our sponsors become a sponsor because of their products in the very first place, so for a reason. And so is GoMotoTrip Custom Motorcycle Fairings now.

It was back in Europe, when I crashed a Yamaha R1 at about 200 km/h and pretty much everything was to fix. You either know or can imagine what the costs are to replace everything broken with original parts, especially fairings. That’s when I started looking for aftermarket fairing kits and found some from China on ebay. I thought I’d give it a shot since the kid was very cheap and comes painted. The picture were looking good so I ordered. It took about 4 weeks to get it delivered and when it did- man was I disappointed. Nothing seem to fit as it should. Not a single hole was right and had to be oval drilled to get there. Uneven plastics and too hard to bend, so pretty easy to crack. Supports which are reaching to brackets broke in no time. The paint job was poorly done. Too thick here- too thin there, and running noses all over. From 15 yards away, a good looking bike after all. However, I was in the ‘never again’ mode.

Then in 2017, we got a new school bike, a salvaged 2014 Ducati Panigale 1199R (part1, part2). It had to be rebuild. I hated the standard red ‘Ferrari image’ but I was not willing to spend a fortune for a custom paint job, so I started looking around again. Loaded with tons of design ideas I started talking to multiple Chinese companies if they would be able to make it happen, as well talking about my bad experience. I found ‘Wilson’ from GoMotoTrip who send me tons of close-up pics, and man they were looking good. When he even offered to send it back if I wouldn’t like it- I was sold.

So I was about to get an entire fairing kit including all inner plastics and a wind shield and painted after my own design for about 500 bux including shipping. I was excited and nervous as hell when it arrived. Unpacking revealed a 99% perfect paint appearance and logos under a phenomenal clear coat. The ABC plastic was light and flexible as it use to be from factory. The installation was a walk in the park. Everything fitted as it should.

Since then, GoMotoTrip is Superbike-Coach’s source for fairings and paint jobs, no matter if it comes from China. Their service and quality speaks for itself, so what?! They are our sponsor now and delivered just recently a kit to rebuild one of our rentals. The damn thing is almost too sexy to rent it out and to get beat up again. Though, we know that GoMotoTrip has our back now when that happens. Really cool stuff which is affordable and small flaws take-able. You can’t go wrong.

Superbike-Coach Wheelie Course Is A Blast

When people come to our wheelie course from all over the nation and even from overseas… and when this program is booked up about 4 months upfront… I think that this tells the story how good it is. So it was last Sunday. Exceptional vibe and eager through out the class.

18 of 20 new knee draggers

Our success rate on the Knee Down class speaks for itself… 18 of a 20 students are dragging the knee now. If that doesn’t ring the bell then I don’t know.

Not that this is an easy task. They learn so much from Superbike-Coach in a relatively short amount of time. I am proud for all 20 though, because their eager showed and they never gave up. That’s what its all about for me.

Congrats to everyone!

Suspension Workshop On A Race Track

It would be ideal, but a professional racer doesn’t have to know how to setup suspensions and all what comes along with it. He has to know how to report symptoms though. Without it- his engineer doesn’t even know where to start. To find answers, the engineer has to know what questions to ask. Without knowing what to ask- the racer might not know what to look for.

See the struggle?! This is exactly where our ‘Workshop & Track Time‘ class goes. it literally covers both sides but without overwhelming you. The class overlooks the basics of the why/how’s of ergonomics, tires and pressure, geometry, and the suspension of course.

We, the Superbike-Coach team, are helping you to find the right settings to make your bike really yours. It goes way beyond this actually, because most of the time we’ll find issues with your bike you might never noticed or even adapted to. I can tell you frightening stories of what we could help to fix before things go down for the rider…

That’s not all. In-between every class session, you will go on our Little 99 Raceway to explore those settings, and learn to report for trouble shooting. The main goals are:

  • Confidence boost: easier operation
  • Better rider: understanding logic concepts
  • Gaining: More comfort for street riding
  • Safety or speed: More tire grip

Every rider/bike is welcome to join this for only $99, and that even includes free sport photography. Get your ticket for 10/25/2020 before it’s too late, because there are only a few spots left (full description and booking).
