"Slow down and focus on the technique" is the first advice you'll hear from Socal Supermoto's Brian Murray, teacher and owner of this track experience that provides everything including the bikes, gear, pizza, and all the encouragement you can handle. I have to admit, as a first timer I was a little bit intimidated. I am not a fast rider and racing around a track with 13 other ladies I didn't know quickly turned out to be the one of the best experiences I've had on a moto to date.
So what is it exactly? Socal Supermoto is a school that is designed to make you a better rider. The skills you learn in the class translate to any motorcycle (dirt and street). The classes are small which means you get hands on guidance everytime you are on the closed track. Classroom instruction breaks up the day and allows you to hydrate in between your track time (trust us, in full leather riding gear you need it). The school's philosophy is that proper technique not only makes you a safer/better rider, it makes riding much more enjoyable.
What were my biggest takeaways? The biggest take away I learned was slow is OK! I also learned how to effectively use the front braking system safely & to my advantage in turns. I can now read my turns way better and understand where to enter those turns and exit them. I also entered my first race and even though I am 100% non competitive, it somehow came out of me and I had an absolute blast chasing new friends around the track.
How can I take the class? We are glad you asked! We are proud to announce we've teamed up with Socal Supermoto and are supporting 2 more ladies only classes for 2018.
