We gotta be honest about our riding skills. There are few things more viscerally exciting than riding a motorcycle well, but if we’re ever going to rinse a bike for something close to whatever it’s worth, we need to drastically improve our cornering skills. It seems like spending a weekend with Keith Code and his California Superbike School could be just what we need. Code comes across more like a blissed-out surfer than accomplished motorcycle rider, but that’s what makes him all the more appealing — like a Ducati Yoda, or something. Here he talks about cornering, the passion of riding a motorcycle, and the priceless payoff of getting well trained in an inherently dangerous activity. As Code says,“Motorcycles don’t crash very easily, and it’s never just one error that the rider makes; it’s a series of errors.” That makes me feel a helluvalot better about my chances of making it through the school in one piece.
