Recap Last Knee & Wheelie Classes (Oct 11 & 12)

Recap Last Knee & Wheelie Classes

Headcoach Can Akkaya:  Let’s recap our last Wheelie and Knee Down classes in Oct 11 & 12:

Luckily it was not that hot in Stockton as it use to be… but what was going on on our track… that was hot. Seeing my students all weekend to aim for a real goal and having me and my team working real hard to make most of them reaching these goals- that makes my classes always to an eye opening experience. I start this story out with a testimonial from Dean Lonskey:

Superbike-Coach Wheelie Course, Oct 2014 (178)          “I’ve been riding motorcycles for over 40 years (desert, motocross, street), 26 years recently on street, and I’ve always been a little nervous about doing wheelies but would still try. Taking the wheelie course helped with that and Superbike-Coach is a really good school to take. The instructors are very honest, upfront, and experienced (just one look at them in action was enough to convince me!). The 1on1 part of the class, with ear buds in your helmet listening to Headcoach Can giving instructions, is a MUST for EVERYONE! Coach Can Akkaya never pulls any punches and tells you “like it is…good and bad”. You can do something WRONG and he’ll let you know right then and there. However, just as quick as he gets on you for a mistake, he’s right there cheering you on and congratulating you when you do something correct. Anyone who takes this class will come away with something new learned or something remembered that was forgotten“.

Knee Down & Wheelie Course at Stockton

The knee down and Wheelie classes last Saturday and Sunday (May 17 and 18) was a blast.  We had students coming over from D.C., Ohio, Oregon, Nevada, and from all over California.  All of them hard workers and no quitters- which I really appreciated the most.

Knee Down

That this class is more than just to drag the knee should be logic.  Of course there is more to know and to work on to get the job done.  To do this on public roads would be against the law and common sense- as well as our believes- so the environment we at Superbike-Coach are using since 3 years now is just perfect.

The morning began as usual with a warm welcome and introduction. After a short briefing we went for a track walk, where we was talking about a big subject… the ideal line.  After this, the students were ready to roll out to learn the track. Pretty much ever Read more

Tips for a good start in the new riding season

Tons of tips are available on the internet.  Some are good- some are bad… real bad.

Actually so bad, that it might end up in a disaster when you follow half-knowledge people.  Advice number one… don’t listen to someone on a forum who thinks that using the rear brake makes more sense today as it made sense 20 years ago…. no- it still doesn’t make sense, because rules of physics don’t change.  I understand that all of these “good” advices sound plausible for the newbie, and especially this is why you should spend less time listening to them.

If you are all set for the new riding season comes down to three factors;

1) riding experience;  The experience (and this includes also close calls, crashes, and tons of feeling) is the only thing can’t be taught, but all of it makes the rider. You gotta go through this on your own.

2) knowledge;  Can be taught in schools (there are good and bad ones), videos (not on youtube though), or books (good source)… and you’ll learn only if you admit to have to learn- even if you think you’re a heck of a rider.  I’d prefer a school, because reading about climbing is kinda different as really hanging on the edge of a cliff Read more
