Hey guys, I've been looking to better myself every time i can on my bike. I've only been riding for about 4 months now, and it seems that every time i go out to ride, i learn something new or get a little more comfortable. I've heard that you can take lessons at the track to better your skills, and get more comfortable on the bike. Have any of you guys taken these classes? Do you think i should get more riding time before i take these classes, or are they even a necessity before i hit up the track? I'm in Nor Cal, and Infineon is prob my best bet.

Sounds good, I might have to check out that class. I might have to do the Uhaul thing, but oh well it won't be that bad. Is that class too advanced for someone like me, or are there different levels of it. I don't want to go out on my first track day and look like a idiot.

If the Pridmore school is near you, take it. Fantastic and a hell of a deal! Really good people, too. Jason got a WSBK ride for the rest of the season after MMP last weekend. I got a chance to talk with him and he said his race schedule won't interfere with his schools at all.

Spencer shool is great. Some add'l seat time on the bike is helpful but not needed.

I took the Spencer race school, but I have heard good things about his street school as well. Nick Ienatsch is the head instructor, and Shane Turpin, Jeff Haney, and other AMA or AFM veterans, some retiring with factory rides, are fantastic instructors. Freddie comes in as well and is a wealth of knowledge. Some find him annoying as an AMA announcer, but he is a great teacher and knows his stuff.

It's not cheap, but it is well worth it. My riding skills increased 10 fold after the class.
