body pos knee down class

The knee down classes are with me almost ever since I started Superbike-Coach programs in the USA. This class was designed for those riders who suppose to know a view things already, but still struggle to drag that knee. I always saw it like the last instance to ‘get it finally done’, just like when you are about to get the trick learning wheelies. I could see this- but most riders not.

No offense, but there are riders who are signing up for knee (and wheelie) classes when they are actually not really ready for this. This is maybe caused by influences of friends, wish-thinking or self-overestimation. I know how I sound like right now, but it’s a fact. Some look into cornering school but since they come off a parking lot “school”, they might remember what “school” looked like and  imagine what this “school” looks like, and think that this ain’t fair enough for them. See the point? You go try to explain that they are wrong there :-)

This was the actual trigger for me to offer the ‘Body Positioning’ class, because that goes more into detail and content than taking the challenge and to chase that knee. That triggered the next issue, which was that people didn’t see the difference of these two programs. So I’m sharing some pain with you right now and you can say I am tired of it, and migrated the best out of both programs :-)

That’s quite some content there, and then we hit track session after track session in the afternoon where you are on our oval either with your bike and our mini bike. At this time I am side line coaching you until you got it down. We had a fantastic test operating the ‘Knee Down & Body Position class‘ last April, and this will be it from here.

Btw… if you read this and you are in that “wish-thinking or self-overestimation” picture… do not sign up for this as this is way ahead of you. The cornering school program is where all the magic is happening for all levels! Faith is better than wish-thinking and visions.

Man, what an outstanding time we’ve had with our students at the knee and wheelie classes last weekend, and our new wheelie machine bike took the beat.

We also made a major change which we put to the test. We migrated the Knee & Body Positioning class. I always felt both programs needed improvement. Now we have the right mix for more content, and maintained the challenge factor.

Another Cornering Day 1 class is coming up on 5/14/, and we have 5 open spots. Come find out what this program makes so darn popular.

To cover the high demand- we’ve added a Cornering Day 3 class for 7/15/2023.

Another heads-up for our track day at Thunderhill Raceway on 8/27/2023. Only 20 of 150 spots are left… 3 1/2 moths upfront! Secure now:

B+: 8 spots left
B:    9 spots left
C:    3 spots left

Btw… if you already have a track day spot, and this will be your first time jumping into a track day environment- then I’d highly suggest to enter our Track Rookie class on 7/23/. This one is a TD simulation and get’s deep into passing. Perfect prep!

Our next Suspension Workshop on 9/17/ is also almost full, so don’t wait too long to get you ticket.

Alright, that’s it. Enjoy spring time and your riding folks :-)
