Riding school in NC

Does anyone know of a good motorcycle class in NC? I need to learn how to corner properly.

Thanks for the suggestions although I am more interested in doing track days and am looking for a course that is track oriented as opposed to street riding.

Oh yeah? Im North of Charlotte in Statesville. Also check out Carolina Motorsports Park in Kershaw, SC i believe. I know they do track days there as well. Nothing actually in NC that I personally know of.

Look up Cornerspeed. They have a quality schools and you can attain a race license if you want. I will likely be finally attending their school this summer. I know several guys who have done their school and nothing but good reviews. They are based out of Charlotte so you can't get closer than that.

California Superbike School will be attending VIR if they haven't already.

Team Pro Motion has track days at CMP and VIR and if memory serves, outside of the level one class (which is included in your membership) , you can pay to have a one on one instructor for a little more.

If your already comfortable riding at speed at want to try the track, NESBA frequents VIR and does some CMP days. The beginners class has people riding slower than commuters all the way to guys turning descent laps. The Control Riders will give you loads of help if you ask and listen. You can learn more there in an afternoon than you know now.

If you don't have leathers, several of the above listed places will rent you gear. The supply is usually limited so reserve it way in advance.

+1 on Cornerspeed. I've done Cornerspeed Level 1 and Cornerspin (roadracing techniques on a dirt track). Enjoyed both and learned a lot.

Aaron's school is accredited with several racing organizations, and once you have your diploma you can apply for a racing license or a provisional racing license. His school and staff are top notch.
