Headcoach Can Akkaya

The Superbike-Coach Team 2016

The Superbike-Coach team gets bigger and bigger, what I personally like the most with my folks is- we’re family!

Each one of us loves motorcycles and we love to work with a passion which is hard to find somewhere else. Everyone rides, and just that fact makes a difference for our students:

Superbike-Coach Team, KevinKevin Sueksdorf

I’m a third year film student at UCSC and a part time moto enthusiast. My first bike was a 2008 Kawasaki Ninja 250. Since then I’ve owned a 2007 Yamaha R6, and I currently ride a 2013 Suzuki DRZ 400 supermoto. As filming and motorcycle riding are two great passions of mine, working for Superbike-Coach is a great place to hone in my skills on and off the bike.

How to learn to ride a motorcycle

Marion Akkaya

My name is Marion Akkaya, I am Coach Can’s wife and I am riding a Ninja 250. I always had a favor for motorcycles because of my husband, who was a bad-ass racer back in Germany. I love working with Coach Can because he has a lot of knowledge to share. His lessons are straight forward and his teaching style has the right amount of discipline,  humor and sometimes sarcasm.

My name is Ruslan Pugach. Ive been riding/racing for about 8 years now. I started with Dirt Biking, went onto Street Riding, Supermoto, and now I am currently racing amateur motocross. There is nothing I love more than motorcycles. So, to be working as a assistant coach with SBC is a privilege. Seeing people progress, the big smiles, and being around motorcycles all day is awesome!

Cornering School FAQ ‘n’ Stuff

Cornering School Day’s Clarified!

The ‘Cornering School Day’ program has been in the Superbike-Coach portfolio for almost two years now and it’s super popular- though, it seems that there are still some misunderstandings about what this program is actually. So this newsletter will clarify what my class is- what it delivers- and why this thing has been so popular, so that you need to ask yourself ‘What am I waiting for, and why should I look out for something else?!’.

This article will clarify all misunderstandings and aspects of this unique program, and will point you to the section of the newsletter where it’s going to be clarified. So go and switch back/forth to the newsletter blocks and come back here to read on the next point. Now let’s have a look at the “top ranked” misunderstanding first…

Superbike-Coach track: 13 challenging turns

About The Track

Some people saying without knowing that: “This track is too small- the track is too tight- the track is nothing for street riders- the track is nothing for track riders”. The ‘funny’ part of this is… most of them haven’t been there- ever! Those riders who was there know now, that there is no difference of the physics of riding you need to understand and to deliver. My track has everything what most street riders have to face every day… tight turns- switchbacks- left and rights- which is what most riders are having truly problems with… see the conflict?! I give all the keys to really take advantage of this track and to be in such control you probably never find somewhere else. Other than that I am able to stop you whenever I want and to point things out for you. Can I do that on a ‘big track’?… no I can’t. Also the short repeating frequency helps you to fix things. There are more advantages, but I don’t want to bore you, so keep going…

About The Coaching and Subjects

My coaching style is way different as you might know form other teachers. I’ve learned my stuff the tough way, all on my own. At this point I should mention that I was holding lap records, achieved Pole Positions, and won some races on International Pro level… oh, and I almost made it to the ‘Top Gun’… to MotoGP. I learned in 40 years of riding and being 11 years in professional European racing- that absolute honesty about a performance is key to get things done quickly and to stay healthy. My passion to show you how it’s done grows with your eager to learn. Yes I hate quitters- and I’m telling ya because I can see. I have a very specific way to make you listen for better understanding, and to make you doing things you’ve never done before with a “Yes Sir!”. So all I am teaching comes from 1st hand… no copied stuff like other schools use to do. You think I show off with my background… heck why not, because some other totally overrated “coaches” coming up with 2 years of racing experience… in other words… no more than on regional amateur levels, so no wonder they don’t teach Trail Braking and counter steering properly- but I do!

The Amenities

There is nothing you could compare to our Cornering School Day events. We’re state of the art- even if we don’t come up with a high gloss painted 30 ton truck, and 30 traction-controlled liter bikes for an expensive rental fee. Does that make sense anyway… no, because you need to learn on your own bike, so that you are in your comfort zone quick- and your focus is not locked into a bike you’ve never used before, and you’ll never gonna use again! Oh, and we are taking care of our people. Whatever it is… coffee, water, snacks, pizza order… we’ve got you covered. But you know what really cool… that you don’t need to make such a huge deal of it to bring your own bike to a track. So no track specific bike preparation, and no track orientated gear necessary. Superbike-Coach photographer Dean Lonskey makes about 1500 pictures of our students on the track… FOR FREE. How do you use to call a total package for under 150 bux again?… a no-brainer!?

The Idea

The concept of the CSD program is designed to make better riders. CSD-1, 2 and 3 are well spread all over the year so that it fits into everyone’s schedule. You pick when to keep going. The program is too big to fill in one day, and it will overwhelm students easily. The advantage is clear. Each day build onto the other, and there is plenty of time in-between to settle freshly learned skills. Once you’re coming back- you and your coach will notice your development and what to go over again. This is a key for a better coach/student connection as well. The website makes date picking easy:

CSD Exclusive

We also can setup an entire CSD event exclusively for your motorcycle club, company or dealership. We’ve done this for many already, even for Google riders for example. Right now we have CSD Specials scheduled like- Cornering Gals, and Cornering GoldWings. So if you have a group of at least 25 riders… contact us and see what we can do for you guys.

Hundreds Of Testimonials

Still not sure if this is the right thing for you? Well- why not checking hundreds of 5 star reviews all over the internet and read yourself what others have experienced and why all of our 2015 classes were booked out! This must have a reason, don’t ya think?! :)

Yes I can’t reach everyone… nobody else can either! Nothing is perfect… how can it?! So give it at least a shot and join in to see if I can reach you- cuz’ if so- good things are going to happen.

Congrats to the Denver Broncos!

What a great win for the Broncos!

I’m so happy for Payton Manning that he can go away in peace from the sport he loves so much. Yes he is not the Quarterback he once was, but that’s how it always goes towards the end of a career in professional sports. I know that because I was in this situation too, and I know how how important it is to leave the field/track/stage with a final victory!

Congrats to the Denver Broncos, and congrats to Payton Manning from Superbike-Coach!

Last Sunday’s CSD-1 class

I was pretty close to decide to reschedule last Sunday’s CSD-1 class, but I’m glad I didn’t. The weather conditions couldn’t be any better for a day in January. OK, our new coffee machine helped to bridge that cold hour in the morning well :)

Though, from the rain the day before, we had a pond on the inside of turn 6, but we ‘fixed’ it with some cones. I personally hated it because it takes my drive out of that section- but it didn’t bother any student, especially not their eager to learn.

As usual we could welcome all kinds of riders and bikes… from an Police officer, Fireman, Lawyers, and Plumbers on sport bikes, touring and cruisers.
