  • Increased awareness of current abilities and our potential to improve.
  • Small, digestible topics + practice = sharper skills.

The information is useful at ANY level.
it's ALWAYS important, but IMO the faster you ride the MORE CRITICAL it becomes to be doing the right things.

i.e. Practice makes PERMANENT so...
Make sure you're practicing correctly!


The post-ride is "at your own pace" (within a certain amount of reason) so you can apply the ideas to your riding level, Matt.
I've been through levels I-III of Superbike School and I find this a GREAT way to review what's important.
