Would you pay $2,600 for two days of professional instruction aboard a KTM RC8, 690 Duke and 990 Super Duke at Laguna Seca? We would, assuming we had that kind of money. Skip Barber is a new name in on-track motorcycle training, but in the car world its schools are held in such high regard that they're considered prerequisite for any job (like mine) that requires performance driving skills.
The first weekend of classes has already sold out, but there's 12
others. Classes cover topics ranging from simple, yet important things
like body position to very advanced skills like trail braking. Those
with moderate skill levels can expect to walk away much more competent
and confident, while already advanced riders will have their needs
catered to as well. Over, say, the instruction available at your
average track day, Skip Barber provides heaps of personal time with
instructors, who will record videos of your riding and use them to work
with you to analyze ways in which you can improve. That, plus plenty of
time on someone else's bright orange superbikes.
