Coach Can is gruff, but absolutely friendly, supportive, knowledgeable, and has made me a substantially better rider in just a couple of classes. I strongly recommend that if you are interested in the class, you at least plan on taking both classes one and two, then decide if it fits you. The first ends with emergency braking, which is a very beneficial safety skill that can save your life on the street. The 2nd day, is countersteering and uber-countersteering. Yeah, you think you know countersteering now? I thought I did, spending lots of time online, watching videos, and reading 3 motorcycle books, but I didn't really. Coach showed me and the class during a critical group exercise that countersteering is effortless, and nearly everyone there is fighting it, causing instability, insecurity, and wasted energy. In just that drill, my lines got tighter, easier, and more confident. You might also be thinking, "but I learned these skills during the MSF course; this is old news!" Here's the thing: I took the MSF too, 3 years ago, and have ridden 35,000 miles of mostly twisty roads since. In retrospect, the MSF nearly seems negligent compared to the control I should have had when I started riding; the same skills that Coach Can taught me over the course of two days of instruction. In addition, you'll have the benefit of having photos taken with the class, which is normally an expensive service. The photographer, Dean, goes out of his way to present a huge compilation of photos throughout the day, ensuring that each rider has several to choose from featuring different corners. They're nice to show off, but also helpful for the learning process in revealing the truth on how you actually look and where you can improve. Considering that the classes run just a bit over 100 bucks for a full day of goofing off on a go kart track, and you have lessons planed with it, and you get photos, that's some incredible value. Parting advice: don't be passive about your learning. Ask questions when you don't understand, leave the canteen area knowing exactly what's expected for each drill and what goal you're trying to accomplish. And don't get offended easily, there will be cursing, as he doesn't sugar coat anything. He tells it like it is, and you'll be better for it.
