Streetmasters Motorcycle Workshops
[QUOTE=b52g;682282]Wow, we need one of those here on the right hand coast!!!![/QUOTE]
[QUOTE=OCJIMMY;683141] I've taken the course and wholeheartedly endorse it. You will be a better rider as a result of it. [/QUOTE]
I couldn't agree more Jim
[QUOTE=Boxwrench;683583][FONT="Comic Sans MS"][SIZE="3"]I need that course. I am still uncomfortable w/ quick sharp cornering and sighting the curve at speed.
Most times I slow down and take it slower than I could.
Also still not comfortable w/ my top heavy feeling BMW in a steep lean.[/SIZE][/FONT][/QUOTE]
I, too, suffered from those "afflictions" - especially after being out of the saddle for 20+ years. Six months after I bought the RT, Walt Fulton persuaded me to take his course and 20 years of bad habits almost vanished in an afternoon.
I practice the Streetmasters skills every time I throw a leg over the bike and I am getting better and better, 23K miles later.

[QUOTE=Greenwald;742224]Looks like an awesome course! :thumb[/QUOTE]
I was with Walt Fulton this afternoon and he thanks you all for the kind words after I read him some of the replies.
He stated that, if he could find the right facility somewhere on the right side of the U.S., he would bring a Streetmasters class out there.
Keep your fingers crossed that, someday, it could become a reality.....:thumb
For more info on the Streetmasters Motorcycle Workshops, I have posted the class schedules for 2012 in the "Member Opportunities" section of this forum.
Possible location outside Washington DC
Another possible location is Bill Scott Raceway, located near Winchester, VA (about 75 miles west of Washington DC).
I am not affiliated with them in any way, but have taken a couple of automobile driving courses at this location.
