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. Nobody understands this better than an ex-racing professional like Headcoach Can Akkaya, who rode a cruiser bike himself after he retired from international motorsports.
Suits street riders who…
- Ride on heavy touring bikes
- Have all skill levels (we run 3 level groups)
- Weren’t helped much at other schools
- Are tired of parking lot drills!
- Want to be a better rider!
No need to get nervous
You decide which pace you’ll be going–nobody else–and the Stockton Little 99 Raceway is a perfect place to learn because it has everything you have to face as a cruiser rider on public roads, from tight turns to the sweepers. It’s just more forgiving than a public street. No distractions, but lots of like-minded students who are sharing a fun day with Superbike-Coach and learning survival skills at the highest level possible, and without pressure.
No hidden fees, no bike preparation, and regular riding gear is sufficient
Riding and learning on a track were never more reasonable and fun. This service suits street riders who wants to learn best-riding techniques, customized especially for heavy motorcycles. Ordinary track days never provide step-by-step instruction. This “Cruiser Rider Class” will provide step-by-step instruction for street riders and their daily needs.
How It Works
This program is big–too big to run or learn in one day, so we’ve set it up for two days- Intermediate and Advanced, so we can go into more comprehensive subjects which will be covered over the two-day class. Besides learning substantial riding techniques in classroom sessions, you’ll get plenty of riding time on our fabulous track with your touring bike or chopper.
No matter what you think your level is, you should start from the beginning to get the full scope of the instruction. This is not a ‘stage’ or supposed to be for beginner or expert riders–this is ‘the class’ you’ve been looking for. As in all in our other programs, the Superbike-Coach photographer is going to take thousands of pictures of you riding on our track, and all for free.
Because I drove cars on the track for years, and read a lot online about motorcycle riding, I was always taking the late apex. As I mentioned in class I had anxiety coming up to any turn at speed, and especially 180 degree tight turns. Your lines made me better at the track and I was lapping people by the third session out.- Jim Murphy, Cornering School Day 1
We do either sideline or on-bike coaching while you do tasks on the Little 99 Raceway. This is not for speeding–this is how to find a smooth balance from entry to exiting corners, and to approach them with confidence. The coach observes and makes ‘adjustments’ step by step. You’ll gain control, smoothness, and accuracy, which ultimately leads to relaxation and confidence. Coach Can is also a very good listener for your fears and ”riding demons”, and you’ll learn from him first-hand.
