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 :-)

New Superbike-Coach Sponsor: Carrillo Law Center

I can happily announce that the Carrillo Law Center has become a Superbike-Coach sponsor.

Their heart for motorcycles and their riders are in the right place because Rafael Carrillo is not just a top notch lawyer- he is also a motorcycle rider himself. Just that is a 100% loyalty guarantee to those riders who need him. There might be the day when you need someone who speaks your language, and that’s Carrillo for sure.

Rafael, aka the MotoLawyer, and Yazmin Carrillo’s dedication to the sport and Superbike-Coach is undeniable. They strive to provide the very best legal services for their clients. They can provide a plethora of legal services in various different areas of the law, which creates a more complete availability of services for clients. As a lawyer, Rafael’s focus is personal injury cases and he is based in Stockton, California.  He has been helping injured persons receive the compensation they deserve for over 10 years.  His law firm, Carrillo Law Center, is a full service firm and has attorneys that handle immigration, family law, criminal law, wills and trusts, landlord/tenant law, and more.

Carrillo enters with Superbike-Coach the opportunity to help motorcycle riders and so their families. Rafael is a man of his word, so welcome to the Superbike-Coach family Mr and Mrs Carrillo!

Hot class in many ways

What a hot class yesterday, in many ways actually. 30 motivated riders under heat wave gave their best- so did we. Ones more the Superbike-Coach team was highly prepared to secure the safety of all participants and to give our students the full SBC scoop. Hot track- hot temps- and I was on fire!

There is ‘that one bolt’

There is ‘that one bolt’ which extends a simple job in regard time, dirt, and resources… ONE fuckin’ bolt. You know those?!

So I did a brake job on my Multistrada Enduro Pro, because ‘Indy’ was missing braking power, which is already restricted with those knobbie tires. The plan: New brake fluid and bleeding air- new pads and cleaning caliper pistons- and 2 new rotors.

While everything else went well, the rotor bolts are glued in the wheel as shit, and I knew that was coming. Some manufacturers also make it harder by using bolts you’d need Torx tools for. I have, but those are really fragile. One after another coming off, not without a fight though… a bleeding finger and a trip to the hardware store for a new set of Torx tools is what that took. Then there is that one bolt. Out by a quarter and a destroyed head.

“MacGyver mode” is on now, as well as a never surrender mind set. Not enough meat to grab it with clamp pliers. Not enough out to saw its dead head off. Figuring that those cheap bolt removal tools you can buy with those TV commercials are senseless. Drilling the head was next, but the next half size bigger hexa did the job after hammering it in as much as possible. Then turning it as straight and smooth as possible got it finally out.

Four f’n hours and a garage floor covered with dirt, tools, sweat and blood for that one bolt :-)

Coach Tip: Heating up glued in bolts helps too.

Covid-19 cancellations: Knee/Wheelie classes

After a long fight I finally have news for ya’ll. This hit us extremely hard after losing 9 classes already. The San Joaquin County is the problem and they will keep the lockdown on our track until July (that’s at least the good news).
As you know- time window for refunds is closed, but as I promised ya’ll will be transferred so that at least you guys have no losses. This is a pain in itself because there is only one more weekend scheduled for this year. I NEED YOU TO RESPOND to my email ASAP if you want us to transfer you there (Oct 17-18). As these dates fill up (first come- first serve!!!), I will create 3 additional dates for 2021 for you to pick. Please keep in mind though, that these new dates are ‘temporary’ and can change (going to be confirmed around Jan/Feb).
Nobody is more hurt about all this than me folks, and I am sorry that you have to go through this. But I also deeply hope you see what Superbike-Coach is all about… to help, to teach, and to have a hell of a time.
If you’d like to support our ‘comeback’, please have a look at the ‘Help us to help you’ fundraiser gf.me/u/x2i2g5
