Default Socal Supermoto School

I'm so excited about this. Socal supermoto is basically a track day group who puts on a school teaching people how to ride a supermoto bike on the track. They have track prepped bikes for you to use so you don't have to risk your own equipment. I'm signed up for the school on June 9th. Anyone in the SoCal area should check this out.

Max Biaggi came out to ride there recently. I guess he's been there a few times.


This is a friend of mine, Mateo.


I'll post up some pic from my day when I get there. I can't freaking wait!

I'm getting the itch...I've always wanted to run supermotard in the M1-GP but never tried. I spent most of my youth doing flat track on 70's Bultacos so this shouldn't be much different.

I just need to make sure this isn't the same date I have reserved for camping at Lake Perris.

I'm waiting n hoping to try Mike's m1gp track training next month. They need minimum 3 ppl to sign up to book the track time and so it's more affordable. $250 per day and they provide instruction and the bikes.

Well I went to the school today. SO MUCH FUN. I know Brian got some pictures of me, just hasn't sent them yet. Since I packed up a little early because my neck was bugging me, I decided to pull out my camera and take a few shots. I'm exhausted so I'll do a full write up later and some more images. These are just a little teaser.
