Open to India road and track bikers, the training will be conducted over three days and consists of four levels. In Level 1, participants will be instructed on basics of bike riding and given an in-depth understanding of laws of handling motorbikes.
Level 2 will aim at bringing out the riders vision and boundaries of eyesight. Level 3 concentrates on enhancing riders riding position which is a major factor where bike riding is concerned while in Level 4 personal attention will be given to each participant to help them hone their riding skills to an even greater level.
California Superbike School was founded in 1980 by former racer Keith Code. The school has seen many professional racers benefit from its training and go on to compete in various international racing events such as MotoGP, World Superbike and American Motorcyclist Association championships. Coaches will be coming for the Madras session from UK schools while TVS will provide Apache RTR 180s for the students and BMW will loan instructors S1000RR.
It is an initiative taken by TT Vardarajan who wants biking aficionados to be responsible and follow safe riding practices. He is also of the opinion that riders in India do not have access to world class training. India has the largest number of road fatalities in the world and the urgent need is felt to educate riders on safe and skilled riding practices.
