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!

Free Student/Donator Ride Out Is Set

We finally could find a date to run the promised free student and donator ride out with the entire Superbike-Coach team. I am super excited about it.

Ninety Six donations have been made, to help us to maintain. Students and even people who never been with us contributed. This is not about numbers, but their hearts. We want to ride and to hang out with them on 10/4/2020.

So, if you’ve been (no matter how far this is back) an SBC student- or if you’ve donated to support us- you can join us. You will have fill the form so we know the headcount, and to wait for the details. Eighty Eight students and donators are on the list already, but this will gain by far I guess.

Only $335 and the fundraiser goal will be reached. Lots of it will be contributed to the Superbike-Coach team, which I love to death! You might help to reach the goal.

We want to ride and to hang out- doing a little BBQ. We’ll also have a service truck with us. Dean’s camera will be glowing all night I guess :-)

All free- but for love and passion :-)

Unlearn to be able to Learn

So I was watching a Moto America race on TV the other day. Truly enjoyed it but less the commercial breaks though. During one of those commercial breaks, there was one of a more or less renowned motorcycle racing school, which appeared to me to operate more on the smarter edge. I’m not to shy to admit that I was wrong…

Fancy production, but still on the cheesy side they explained how Trail Braking works. Goal is to ‘appear samaritan’- but you figure quick that the actual goal is to showcase that they actually teach to Trail Brake in their school. That’s the truth. However, that’s not my problem. What bothers me at this point is, that they blasting critical information with a wide spread shot to riders who mostly NOT READY for such skill yet. Trail Braking separates the men from the boys. This is a skill to be mastered only when other physical skill subjects are sitting well enough and habits are successfully removed beforehand.

You also can’t just drop off only a fraction of the full scoop to a wide spread of people and leave the rest to ‘figure out’. Do Trail Braking wrong and it can turn to a death trap. Quite a risky move on their end if you ask me. To Trail Brake, lots of things will have to be adjusted under control. Only then you can move into it. Trail Braking goes way beyond physical capabilities. This technique demands a solid range of ‘mental coolness’. This can freak most riders out, because throttle, brake, clutch and shifting procedures are different then what MOST riders have learned over years. Change all this and more while you go way faster into turns under Trail Braking could also trigger to panic. Your eyes and brain are not trained and ready for this yet (mental coolness) and that will be the biggest problem.

Things have to be unlearned to be able to learn. Mental coolness has to be established to be able to try and master.

Spreading these information without all of the above is almost like a half-way-instruction on how to climb Mount Everest without a guide. Now how many pairs of ears and eyes who’ve seen that commercial are even capable to climb Mount Everest in the first place… especially when there is no guide?!

Smart move!
