    VIDEO: Streetmasters Precision Cornering Workshop

    Hey folks!

    I just produced this little four minute promo video for Streetmasters Precision Cornering Workshop. I've taken the course twice and Jeanne just took it last month. All bikes, riders and two-ups welcome.

    That, my friend, is one damn fine video. I want to take that class.
    The only honest answer to your question is "It depends".

    Thanks very much, Robert...what a great video. I gotta take that class. I'll bet, even after 40 years of riding, that I would benefit a great deal.

    Great job on the video! I don't know my lower thirds from my better half, but the production values are excellent and it makes me want to take the class - if only I wasn't 3000 miles away...................

    I'm not familiar with Streetmasters curriculum, so no comment on that. i like that they run it on a track, but that also limits locations of operation.
    however, we will again be offering MSF's Advanced Rider Course (ARC) at the MOA National this year- Wed, Th & Fri. ya'll might (will!) find that to be a very good program.

    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.

    I couldn't agree more Jim

    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.

    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.....

    For more info on the Streetmasters Motorcycle Workshops, I have posted the class schedules for 2012 in the "Member Opportunities" section of this forum.

    Streetmasters

    I'm in my 50th year of riding and without recording them I'd say somewhere approaching 500k miles. I have taken several MSF courses; priviledged to ride with the late Lawrence Grodsky of Stayin' Safe along Coast Hwy 1 in California.

    And, I have taken 2 of these Streetmasters classes plus spent a day-long ride with Walt Fulton. I highly recommend this course for those who want to freshen up their riding skills and safety knowledge. Very practical, hands-on, lots of miles, good instruction AND when you ride home it will be a different ride!

    I strongly recommend such a class for the experienced rider and I try to complete one every couple of years.
