More Rider Training around SoCal

Been looking at a few classes to build up my skills. Planning on taking a couple of these next year.




Here the ones I'm interested in:
  • CLASS motorcycle school (Reg Pridmore school)
  • Yamaha - ChampStreet or ChampDay for now.
  • Total Control - IRC and/or ARC
  • Gokart tracks on a mini bike - I picked up a XR100 that's almost in shape to get back on the gokart tracks. Maybe just do a bunch of mini track days?




Anyone have any other recommendations or any experience with the above?

I took the Total Control IRC and M1GP (with their minibikes) and would recommend both.

The IRC course offers a good combination of in-class learning and parking lot drills. M1GP offers you experience on a mini-bike which definitely transfers back to your bike.

m1gp was pretty awesome.
I got a lot time from the staff and on the track. It also gave me a good idea of many things to improve on.
will definitely go back when I can

Yep. Followed him for a bit as he gave me some advice on lines and such.

Guy in the blue suit at the beginning of your video was cool too.

We were riding counterclockwise. I ended up doing a bit of track time, drills, and more track.
Crashed about halfway in (whoopsie. pushed too hard) and injured my hand a bit. By that point, I figured I'd just ice it and let it recover. I had already gotten enough out of the day in terms of how I can improve with fundamentals (throttle, body position, lines, etc...)
So I just stuck around to watch, learn, and chit-chat.

I'll be doing some drills in the parking lot near my house once my hand is back to 100% and have some free time.

Definitely needed the coaching and direction that I got there.
