    ''More than a few riders in NZ and far off places have told me that one days worth of track coaching equates to 5-10 years of road riding experience''

    But you still believe that up to 10 years of road riding experience can be achieved in one coaching session at a track?...

    Mate, I haven't said that I believe it. What I said is that others have shared that view. It was more to emphasise the point that some folks believe there is long term benefits to doing the odd session at a track.

    Don't know why you're so wound up.

    I am laughing at ya mate, not wound up at all. What you have heard.. couldn't be more wrong and it was foolish to post such a bullshit sentence.
    Who were these ''people'' anyway? any names you can share?

    Foolish? Thanks for the judgement.

    As for substantiating this view.
    One group was here in NZ at two days of CSS I attended last March. More than 90 riders were there and many had ridden countless hundreds of thousands of clicks over their 30+ year riding careers. In every case of those guys they wished they had learned the drills years earlier. Some even went as far to say that they could've have avoided bad crashes if they'd used the techniques taught in the CSS drills.

    No worries either way, each to their own and all that.

    Of course, you're pre-supposing 11 years experience trumps the combined experience of the CSS coaches, support staff, and erm the sheer number of students attending. Now that's funny...

    Just keep on amusing yourself by making shit up in a lame effort to remedy your previous massive wank statement.

    you seem a little more confrontational than usual
    I for one would be happy to say that after 30 years of riding i found benefit in doing track days in terms of learning what my bike is capable of with braking,cornering and throttle control
    and it's fucking great fun

    In short, the school is superb.

    Here's a link to the CSS UK schools vids showing what you can expect:

    http://www.kiwibiker.co.nz/forums/sh...p?p=1130802956

    Levels 1 - 4 with each level broken down in to one day drills that are covered individually. Level 1 and 2 covers braking, reference points (3-step), cornering lines,
    throttle control, vision and a heap of theory in between track sessions. Level 3 is mainly focused on body position/bike geometry and level 4 is tailored coaching specific to each rider.

    It's a good idea to read through a copy Keith Codes Twist of the Wrist 2 book beforehand. As many of the concepts are covered in his book. The DVD is also on YouTube and a good watch.

    March at HD is full but there's a school at Taupo (most likely venue) in November. Will be going back for level 3 and 4 then (was going next month but parent-school-camp-helper commitments got in the way).

    In the meantime I'm looking forward to ART next weekend (Group 2). I've heard a lot of good things about how it's run. Will say g'day.

    My usual one beer after work.
    There is no doubt that any tuition would be beneficial for those who feel they need it, even those who feel they don't need it.
    I have been riding with someone who had an ART day or two but was atrocious on the road. But then that person had done very little road riding.
    Once you think you know everything, you're in trouble right?
