California Superbike School

Hi all. Just wondering if anyone has done or is planning a CSBS Day? I'm booked in for day 1 on the 18th of January! Would be cool if anyone else has booked in!

P.S here in Australia we can now get track day both instructor lead and free trackday racing insurance through Wallace Risk Solutions. It's very reasonable my quote for the CSS day 1 was $120.

our CSS is sponsored by Suzuki so we can loan a Gixxer 600, you guys have the option of the BMW 1000!!! Lucky!!!

Worth every penny. There is no school better at what they do!

Stupid people say stupid things on the internet, so be wary of who those people are. If you solicit advice on the internet, just keep in mind 99% of what you'll receive is not based on fact or science-and likely atleast 95% of it is based on bullshit and bravado regurgitated from some other schlub who also did not experience any of what they claim and are also full of shit. If you don't like my bluntness- too bad. I am not here to please you, so move along, your approval is not desired nor is it needed. So before opening your pie hole and adding more stupidity, perhaps sit back, listen, absorb and learn something. You know that saying, it is better to remain silent and thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt!

You will love it. It's a great day, so well organised, and you learn heaps. I plan on booking in for level 3 soon-ish. In the meantime, heading down to PI for a ride day this Friday :-)

I did see they are now offering insurance, although I hadn't enquired about a price. Your quote of $120 sounds surprisingly good, what are the terms and conditions like?

You're going to LOVE it!

A few tips:

1. Read the Books (twist of the wrist 1&2, especially 2). The video is good as well.
2. Come mentally and physically prepared (well rested, no drinking the night before)
3. Be a student, follow their instructions. Have a "learning" attitude (and you will leave with a "leaning" attitude).
4. Go back and re-read the books and re-watch the videos. They will have new meaning.


Many riders have epiphany moments in regards to a weakness in their riding technique. You get a "Oh! that's how its done!" moment that will boost your confidence.



By reading it, seeing it, doing it, you will maximize you experience. Please give us a report after the class.

It was great, I had a ball. Luckily the weather was good this time around, dry all day. Wind picked up in the afternoon, but that's pretty normal. I'll never be Jorge Lorenzo, but hey, as long as I keep chipping away and improve a little each time then I'm happy.

Heading up to Broadford next, in a couple of weeks there's a ladies day on and it's a lot cheaper than a regular ride day, so I'd be silly not to go!

There are many days this year at NJMP and I think I am going to try and at least do Level 1. Wish it was a bit cheaper, but I have a feeling it will be well worth the cost

How is it worth that and much more if I can get personalized coaching 1 on 1 in another organization for the exact same amount of money.
