    Re: Motorcycle Schools

    whatever you learn there for CITY riding, I am not sure if you can apply your learning to the fullest with future Rossi and Marquez lurking on our Indian roads , who are ready to find trouble in the form of racing on street. You may try to obey traffic rules and may get banged from behind for stopping at a red signal when no one is there on the road. You may stick to a lane or follow lane discipline or not filter at all, that never works in our country where the vehicle population is more than the people itself (just assuming).
    They (I mean schools) may try to explain you that but the truth is they are not even allowed to teach you how it is but should teach how it is supposed to be according to the traffic rules. I doubt how practical it could be to take city riding lessons.

    And when might that be? Because I could really use some help.

    Re: Motorcycle Schools

    The biggest things a track school can teach you are countersteering and braking. Both can be useful skills, though in India road speeds are usually low enough that countersteering (while still important) won't feel the way it does at higher speeds. Braking skills will translate very well.

    However, you are correct in your thinking that there's a lot more to street riding than setting up for cornering. I have often thought that it would be a good idea to try to get the very successful Motorcycle Safety Foundation courses over to India from the US. In the meantime, most of their material can be found online with some digging. I even found pdf files of the diagrams they use for the practical skills portion of their courses. You'd need a large, unobstructed parking lot (should be paved) to really get the most out of those diagrams, but the things they teach are priceless. I would suggest trying to find those diagrams if you can, or at least videos of the exercises, and practice. Practice things like hard braking, swerving, cornering, and lane changes. Practice looking ahead in corners i.e. look where you want to be, not where you are. Practice using your peripheral vision: sit in a chair, or on your bike (not moving). While looking forward and without moving your eyes, practice being able to "see" the things off to the sides of your field of vision. If you have a full-face helmet, try to "notice" the edges of the eye port without moving your eyes; if you can see the entire perimeter of the eye port you should be able to see everything within it. Once you can do that, try it while riding; watch where you're going, but make yourself aware of everything going on to your sides.

    Make sure your bike has both mirrors, and adjust them so you can see things behind you (you should just be able to see a little bit of your arms/shoulders). Use them. When changing lanes or turning, check your mirrors, but also turn your head and look over your shoulder before initiating the turn, so you can be sure there's nothing coming up beside you.

    Any inputs will be appreciated.

    Re: Motorcycle Schools- Motovation Track Days

    Hello,

    Nikhil & I run Motovation Track Days. As far as we know we are the only Motorcycle Riding School based out of India.

    Both of us have raced, toured, commuted and lived/breathed motorcycles for a better half of our lives and we wanted to make track days & training affordable to everyone. We are not a race school and we would not want to misguide anyone into thinking we are one. We are a Safety Riding School, our goal is to make you safer and more confident, if becoming faster is a by product of that, then more power to you.

    We have received a lot of flak for conducting our training/track days on smaller tracks but considering even the slowest riders average 50kmph, the pace is by no means slow, it does however mean that you get to experience real world speeds. Being fast on a track doesn't make you safe in the real world. We help you understand your motorcycle better, we help you find its limits as well as yours in a safe controlled environment. You are welcome to come down and watch how we get things done during our next track day. If you feel it is something that works for you then please do join in.

    Do check us out on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/motovationtrackdays/


    Also I have been asked to stop accepting pizza as payment for track days. #staymotovated

    hmmm..... thats good news then i guess ?!

    i watched a powerdrift video where they had someone from their crew riding on rc 200 (racr 1st event) and he was a newbie too.
    may be after first few sessions they must have realised that newbies are time waste ?!


    how can people be a Regular on such academies ?!
    the cost is exorbitant !!

    and how do we judge which academy is vfm ?
    lol

    many of them charge Rs.7500 per day for r15's/apache's.



    P.S --- SORRY guys. My mistake.

    The RACR helds its track riding training sessions in all the three tracks of india randomly. And they DO take novice riders - i just called them and cleared things up from their guy.

    2 day session - charge 50k approx (training + refreshments)
    If u rent their bike (rc390) - 12,000
    March 30 and 31st 2016 @ BIC N.delhi.

    Cheers.

    Can you give me some details as to how it operates, when I can enroll and such? Not much information given on their website. They have vaguely asked me to keep watching their FB page feed for updates as they are taking part in the MMSC event it is I think.

    I saw some of the chumps riding in RACR's first edition at BIC. Some of those guys looked like they didn't know the gear lever from the clutch lever!

    I do not know they selection criteria, but clearly many of those riders were absolute novices. I say this from sight and not from their website!

    All the above listed riding schools trains you on how to become a better Rider and then Track oriented riding. If you are still not convinced and think they all train the students to become Racers, or CSS is for Big bikes. I suggest you go join a local motor driving school if they teach you riding.

    N.B CSS provide Apache RTR / R15 for rent to students which is not a Big bike. Don't get misguided with their name.
