    Default Motegi Racing school August 21st

    I just booked this:
    http://www.twinring.jp/mrs_m/

    This is the "light" version of the regular school, 90min of track time and 40 bikes. 25 000yen.
    I much prefer this to the regular open track days and the instructors will give you feedback on how to get faster.

    Would be great to see some familiar faces around!

    This class is definitely helpful. Fills up quick if weather is good. If you have TRMC license it's 18000. I'll might do the event in early Oct.

    I had a great time at Motegi. I was lucky enough to have a guy I already know as my instructor. Worked on my body positioning on the bike mostly and didn't really chase lap times so much.

    It's a beast for sure. Was having problems with sliding back on the seat at WOT....this made me hold the bars too tight and that is why there is a slight front end wobble :-)
    Might try and fit a foam block in the rear of the seat to keep from sliding back.
    Next time I will brake later and try to get my lap times below 2:20.

    Would you seriously consider racing your Diavel? If you plan to, make sure to put this on

    Great stuff! Very happy with my TRMC-S and the quality of staff at Twin Ring.
    Happy to join you at the next class day!

    Some of the folks there are also working for i-factory, helping organize many of the track events including the North Short Course Championship Series!

    Above 125cc, registered w/ number plate is OK. When I did my 1Day MFJ license there, a guy did it on a Harley. Interesting when you hear/see a jiggly cruiser roll up next to a sport bike at the Full Course entrance!
