Thumbs up Did the L1/L2 Keith Code School and had a BLAST!

All,

I did the KC school last week at Barber, and it was fantastic. The school was very informative, and Barber is just an absolutely fabulous track.

I'd highly recommend the school!

I really, REALLY want to get back on the track. I'm HOOKED!

I guess in short review, what exactly did you cover in the KC L1/L2 classes. I'm very interested in enrolling in his school.

Re: Did the L1/L2 Keith Code School and had a BLAST!

Throttle control was the big thing. Basically the "job" of the rider is to have stability. The single biggest thing the rider can control is the throttle.

Other skills are visual skills, which really open the track up. Some of the stuff he says, you think, "Duh!", but it's amazing how many bad habits a person can have without really knowing they're bad. The drills that he has you do are very specific/simple in nature, and they build on each other.

Send me an e-mail with your questions, and I'll gladly answer as best I can.

You ride a Kawi for the school right??? What happens if you drop it??? Is it insured or do you have to pay.


Did you ride any of the special bikes he has? I think it is the lean bike or the drift bike.

Yeah, I used their bikes. If you do use their bikes, you put down a $1000 deposit. One of the guys in the class crashed. Nothing major, but a lot of cosmetic damage. Bill: $800. I was glad I didn't crash.

I rode the hang-off bike, the camera bike, the skid bike (where you lock up the front tire). Pretty cool stuff.

Did they let you keep any video? It sounds like a blast.

Re: Did the L1/L2 Keith Code School and had a BLAST!

They did have the video bike. I got on it once early during the first day, and I looked awful. I also wasn't rolling on the throttle soon enough.

When I had my chance to get on the bike a second time, I didn't do it because I was improving and was really getting into the flow of the track, and changing bikes would have thrown me off a bit.

They did give you the tape (miniDV) afterwards, so that was cool.
