Superbike-Coach Corp. Receives 2019 Best of Elk Grove Award

Ones more, Superbike-Coach has been nominated and awarded with the ‘2019 Best of Elk Grove Award’.

Superbike-Coach came a long way to this point. Starting back in Europe in 2003 and coaching track riders and racers only on almost all MotoGP tracks. Coming to the U.S. in 2008 and continuing Superbike-Coach on a very small scale in 2009.

And now another year went by- quicker as ever. But what would you think where it might goes when you’ve booked up all classes in the previous year already? Not much further you’d say, but we did. All classes in 2019 have been booked up, plus the ones we’ve added. And those were only the scheduled classes. Also the headcount for Road Skill, Cornering 1on1, Supermoto 1on1 and Track Drill 1on3 has gained a lot, so that a off-riding season isn’t excising anymore for Superbike-Coach. But I can assure you that we’ve enjoyed every class- and every single individual we had the pleasure working with.
 
So I want to thank all those riders for giving us their trust, hopes and dreams. We are not taking this for granted. It’s been a pleasure to work with so many characters, levels and categories and yea, also ego. Most of them have become part of ‘the family’ or even serious friends. Sure, we can’t reach everyone. This is impossible anyway, but we’re also not even trying hard, because we’re not selling ourselves. We leave this to the others out there.
 
So this here goes to the Superbike-Coach Corp team. The dedication, effort and commitment you guys put into everything you do is beyond extraordinary. The friendship, loyalty and respect to each other makes the difference. Marion, Lindsey, Mark and Dean… I thank you from the core for every minute for being a Superbike-Coach, because also they are the foundation of what SBC is today.

You know… Superbike-Coach is not just the class you see- It is thousands of pictures to manage, tries and errors for developing the right program, hours of work on websites, thousands of students to manage, hundreds of water bottles to buy, engines to fix overnight, and many miles to go. And this is even just the tip of the iceberg. Love you guys!

But also a thanks goes out to our sponsors, because they are indirectly support our students as well, and some even directly via student discounts. We so appreciate the support of Forma Boots USA, Arai Helmets USA, Wiseco, TechSpec, Moto Gear, Dynojet Research, BikeMaster and new to us Amsoil. All of these top notch companies are wit us for so many years already that there is a boundary which goes way beyond regular sponsorships. Go see what they have to make your hobby even a better one.
 
My thank also goes to the Little 99 Raceway administration Heather and Tony who as dedicated into the detail as we are.
 
This is a big package and responsibility to lots of people, and this type of dedication got us sometimes to total exhaustion. However, we’re ready to tackle 2020!
 
I wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Featuring Forma Boots USA

I can tell ya- no other company supports the racing community more than Forma Boots, and that goes trough all professional levels in this sport- up to MotoGP.

To be in MotoGP is a huge responsibility in regard quality and performance of the product. Why?… because lack of these attributes will show it to a worldwide audience and the racers won’t use it, no matter how much a sponsor pays for it. That makes this sport to such a development booster btw. So if you think you can boost cheaply made riding boots by paying MotoGP racers to promote them… you might end up looking real bad if you put quality and performance second. Doing this right means, 101% commitment to the product and trust for what its capable of. In other words… if a company like this has been established in MotoGP for so many years… their products are ripping it and are rock solid on all edges. Like a perfectly grinded diamond.

The more I am super proud to have Forma Boots USA as a sponsor, cuz’ hey… that also kinda says something, right?! Forma is with us now for many years and took care of our needs no questions asked. Their segment covers all motorcycle categories, and even on the civil side:

The Forma brand was born in 1999 and since then has always shown important growth trends. Thanks to its own R&D and the continuous technical development, the brand has been able to offer the market a complete product range. Only the highest quality standards have guaranteed Forma to become a global brand amongst the most recognized in the world.

Forma USA send me some phenomenal looking and fitting ADV Tourer boots and a set of Ice Pro Flow race boots, which are matching my MotoGear suit pretty nicely. I’ll have a video of how to adjust shift and rear brake levers soon, and you’ll have a look on those boots as well.

And yea, Forma Boots USA has a 20% off discount for all Superbike-Coach students. That is extraordinary and you should take advantage of it. Thank me later :-)

Superbike-Coach Accelerates Into 2020

I hope you had some great Holidays with family and friends. Kinda good to be out of this as well, huh?! :-) :-) :-)

Just realized that Superbike-Coach had its 10th anniversary in the U.S. (started in Europe years before that), and when I reflect where I started here in California- oh boy. The first class was a 1on6 Road Skill and I had 5 classes in that first year. From there, I accelerated through those years till 2019. Now seeing where we are- a 101% dedicated team of five with Marion, Mark, Dean and myself, and a schedule with 55 classes and 1on1’s per year and ALL booked up. Now seeing where we go. Guess what… we’re still accelerating!

So this time I don’t have an educational- for some controversial- article for you, because there are some news here you should look into and IMPORTANT date changes for those who already booked a 2020 class.

Biggest news is, that we added a new program, the ‘Rider Passenger Class’. I’m super excited about it because I know how helpful this will be for the rider and the passenger in MANY ways. It’s gonna be so fun for them and for us to be on our Little 99 Raceway. It’s gonna be for all skill levels and bike categories and hell of advanced. We even plan demos with my wife Marion on the passenger seat, who is very experienced with this. Don’t lean back to wait and see, because there is only ONE date in 2020 for it right now, and no doubt- also this 9/27/2020 class will be booked up!

We’ll have 3 level groups on the track and classroom between the riding sessions. This class will connect the riding pair physically and mentally. I seriously can’t wait for it.

To make space for that class- the Cruiser Rider Class has been eliminated. Not that the cruiser community wouldn’t have a use for it… it’s because I don’t see the SENSE to separate motorcycles from motorcycles. Cruiser riders and their bikes belong in the Cornering School program like all the others, because we’re all dealing with the same element… PHYSICS.

I also eliminated ‘Sideline Coaching’. It was designed for the ‘faster’ ones, for the racers, but it never really established. I don’t want to go further into this, but if you are interested in the depth of what I think this is, then read my article ‘A ‘Sensei’ has to be old‘.

It took longer than ever to put our schedule for 2020 together, and it actually is still not all done. Track Drill and Road Skill dates are missing, but they will be added during January. We added more cornering school dates and the new classes, so that we probably see a total of 60 classes and 1on1’s in 2020. More info see below.

I am also excited that we have some new sponsors on board and could keep the ones which are longer with us for the most. These guys

 

rock, because they are also supporting our students- either indirectly or directly with discounts. We appreciate their support a lot and you might check what they have to make your hobby even better. We’ll introduce them and what they do in a section of every newsletter.

So, again… if you’ve already booked something in 2020- you need to double check the accurate 2020 schedule and let us know if you can’t make it so that we can work this out with you. Also check out the info below. Gonna be a great year.

New Program, the Rider Passenger Class

I am happily announcing an additional program to the Superbike-Coach portfolio, the ‘Rider Passenger Class‘. I guess the name of the program displays well where this new program goes.

It’s always been existing as an idea, but never got fully into the subject. Until one of our cornering school students specifically asked me to help him and his wife. After making a poll and seeing the results, I started to design a rough program/agenda for a class like this. The more I was working on the details, the more I saw the huge benefits for the riders and their passengers.

Structure:

  • Held on Little 99 Raceway in Stockton
  • Only ones per year
  • Full day
  • All rider/passenger levels
  • 3 level groups of 10 bikes each
  • Classroom/track sessions
  • As usual free sport photography by Dean Lonskey, snacks, drinks
  • For all 2 seated bikes: Sportbikes, Adventure bikes, Touring bikes, Chopper/Cruiser bikes
  • $169 includes track fee and passenger fee

Just this is already a guarantee for maximum fun in a ‘safe as possible’ environment, isn’t it?! I was even more convinced about it when I was writing each subject:

  • Mental Connection (line choice, prediction, focus)
  • Body Synchronization (body language, balanced motion)
  • Emergency Braking for 2 (by unloading the rider)
  • Uber-Steering, Counter Steer (and how to get use to massive transiti0ns)

These are just the major subjects, but the day will be filled with much more information than this. Weight distribution, shifting without headbanging, slow maneuvers, movement prediction, and much more. This class will change everything- for the rider, and for the passenger.

So, the date is already published. It’ll be on 9/27/2020, and since there is only one class this year – I would highly suggest to make an early booking and to secure your spots. This is going to be booked up, just like all the other classes. Doesn’t this say a lot about Superbike-Coach actually?!

Another year went by- quicker as ever.  But what would you think where it might goes when you’ve booked up all classes in the previous year already? Not much further you’d say, but we did.
