little preview before the review for anyone who doesn't know me or hasn't read a lot of my posts - only been riding for a year and a half, had a down last june and still getting that put away where it doesn't bother my riding.
Going into the course I was thinking about (and very sure I would at some point) drop the bike. I also knew I'd likely be one of the least experienced riders there and frankly wasn't sure how much of it I'd be able to do.
Having just completed the course today, my opinion is that for any new rider who's been riding for a year or so, this is a fantastic course for you to take. If you're needing more confidence, or needing to work on low speed manouvers or emergency braking or just want to find out whether or not you can learn to do something better, this is a great thing to take.
Over the last two days I was doing things I wouldn't even have attempted prior to the course and went from a deathgrip of nerves on the bars for the first couple hours to being able to relax and start applying the skills they teach you.
Highly recommend this course and these people. I will be back to take it again and likely look into taking some of the other courses they offer when I'm ready for those. Huge boost to my confidence and not a false one. They'll very frankly tell you where you screwed up or need work, and get you to do it again, over and over until it becomes more natural and when you miss something you'll know what you did wrong and why.
The best part? The ninja stayed rubber side down the whole course, my confidence went up significantly and my enjoyment of riding has increased even more than that.
I cannot recommend this course enough, and if you're serious about becoming a better rider, this course will give you a ton of things to learn. A few of the riders there who had done track days saw how this course will improve the skills they learn at the track days as well. There is no downside to taking the training and a whole lot more to gain than I had anticipated.
I now have a better idea of where I need work and what I can do to practice to improve that on my own. Win/win IMO. 5 stars.
