(A Streetmasters Testimonial from Precision Cornering Workshop graduate, Greg Jirak. Posted with permission)
I just wanted to get back to you and let you know how valuable the Precision Motorcycle Course was for me that Streetmasters held at Willow Springs.
I took the lessons to heart, and really practiced the delayed apex line of travel through curves.
Each week, I practice in the canyons above Malibu. We’re talking 200 miles of twists and turns every week. The canyons are constant tight turns. They require focused attention, looking ahead (head up and turned in the direction of the road ahead), maintaining a balanced sitting position (i.e., not stiff-arming the handlebars), and controlling speed into the turns with brake-throttle control.
Riding the twisty turns now comes with much greater confidence and safety. It’s easy to enjoy motorcycle riding more now, especially when the road has lots of turns.
Braking is another skill I practice to ensure controlled panic stops. You never know when you will need this essential skill.
Thank you for all you do to make the Streetmasters course available to motorcyclists.
I hope other riders will see this Streetmasters Testimonial and sign up for the course.
I am headed out on a 5-day motorcycle camping trip to Monterey, CA. The plan is to take in as many twisty backroads as I can find. I look forward to putting my Streetmasters lessons and good practice to use.
Safety first, always seeking fun motorcycle roads.
