And they follow you with a go-pro camera and sit you down to let you know what your doing wrong and how you can improve.

I really wish they had this closer too me; even for a one day thing I'm sure there's a ton to take away from it. Price all comes down to how much you're willing to spend for quality training. For all the threads I've read on these classes, if you pay attention you will learn something, no matter how good of a rider you are. I really wish flying out somewhere for one of these courses was in the budget(college is expensive).

I do know what CALIFORNIA SUPER BIKE SCHOOL IS... IT"S THE TOP SCHOOL OUT THERE NOW.
This is why I'm trying to figure out what the difference is between CSS and a Private 1 on 1 with a expert-level racer at another organization.
I feel like I would gain more if I had a 1 on 1 for the same amount of money... YAH GET ME?
BTW I have a buddy who has gone 4 times to this school... So I heard everything about it...

Just because they are an expert racer doesn't mean they are an expert teacher. Keith is both, and he has spent something like 30 years developing these techniques and how to teach them successfully. That is one of the big differences.

What's the difference between doing a day of the school and the "2-Day Camp" ? Honest question, all I can see is that the individual days cost 390/per if I bring my bike, but somehow the camp is $2450

A bunch:

Two-Day Camps

Our Two-Day Camps are open to both first time California Superbike School students as well as returning, upper level students.

Two-Day Camps have all of our bells and whistles. More importantly, we offer a 2:1 student to coach ratio making it semi-private coaching for each student. In addition, with only two small groups, students have half again the track sessions of our regular school days to hone the skills. The bells and whistles? Aside from our fantastic new S1000RR BMW bikes we have on-board video with reviews, Lean-Bike, Slide-Bike and the Panic-Brake Bike and full riding gear and lap times and breakfast and lunch and healthy snacks and everything else that you need is provided. Riders experience a complete refit of their riding skills.


Two-Day Camps Include:
•One-on-one consultant style instruction for returning Level IV students.
•Over-Your-Shoulder video and reviews by our on-board video "coach."
•Riding our beautifully prepared BMW S1000RR, with fresh Dunlop Qualifier 2 tires.
•Emergency Stop training on our Braking Bike, with Galfer brakes, naturally.
•Riding the Lean Machine.
•Riding the Slide Machine, but only when you are ready!
•Lap times are provided to chart your confidence.
•Assigned on-track riding coach — just 2 students per coach.
•Breakfast, Lunch and healthy snacks all day.
•Way too much track time: 7 on-track sessions each day, weather permitting.
•AGV leathers, Alpinestar boots/gloves and KBC helmets all provided free.
•A major surge in personal riding freedom and the finest training available on Earth.

Okay completed level 1 yesterday. I'll be the first to admit that I kept thinking that each drill was just common sense. Having said that when you go out on such a fantastic track as Philip island and put the drills into practice you notice that if you do exactly what they say you actually improve every lap! Stick 6 drills together and combine them and you are riding better than you thought because you move the "common sense " ideas into concious riding habits which will improve every rider. Moving what you do with your bike and your body and also your thinking from subconscious to the concious makes riding at the same speed a lot easier and requires less though or you can ride faster using the same amount of thought and effort! Big thumbs up to CSS for the course material in day 1 and now comes the tough part of putting it into practice daily! On a side note I did the course on the Zx6r, the bikes first time on the track! It was amazing! I know it's netball race but it had even bigger bikes looking rather average! It was the perdormer of the day! On another side note out of about 60 bikes I had the only zx! And not even the only zx but the only Kawasaki!!!!!!!!!!!!! There was every type of bike and every model imaginable except for Kawasaki Wtf is going on when you get a random sample of about 60 bikes and there is only 1 Kawasaki Everyone noticed this and called me zx6r all day as there were no Kawasaki bikes apart from mine. I know I'm going on about this but the brand is ubiquitous and yet only 1 there... The one there did us proud though

Sounds like YOU were the performer of the day! Congrats, would you recommend it for others? My finding is that common sense is not that common.

I've been riding for 16 years and I learned so much and gained confidence! I would recommend it to all riders of any level. The better you are at the start the better you will be afterwards. If you are a newer rider you will still improve just at a lower level. You are correct about common sense! When you put the tools they give you in your tool kit you will find new ways of doing things that you may not necessarily have thought of yourself. Day 1 and day 4 are the most beneficial I was told yesterday as day 1 cements the basic fundamentals into you and when you do it on the track you gain confidence! Improved awareness and the limitations of you and your bike become clearer and you realise how far you are from the limits! 2 big thumbs up and I can't wait to just ride and ride and keep drilling the lessons into my daily riding style!
