Ride Chicago's advanced SRTT class

Anyone have any experience or knowlege of Ride Chicago's advanced "SRTT" class? It looks farily interesting. I consider myself to already be good rider (but don't we all), so I'm considering taking an advanced class to test/advance my skills.

I haven't taken the class, but I know the Ride Chicago guys pretty well. For the record, I think ANY educational riding course is a good idea - for new or old riders. However, when it comes to the "advanced" classes, I would price out that course against a trackday.

I think many would agree that pound for pound - you can learn a helluva lot more in a few laps than you would after a weekend of putting around a parking lot.

(if you have any more info to the SRTT class you might want to post a link. Others might be interested as well?)

Just because I don't care doesn't mean I don't understand.

Don't be mislead into thinking that because it held in a parking lot 500,000 sqft that its "Slow, mundane, dosen't apply to the track" you'd be wrong on all counts. There is no speed limit... you ride as fast as you possibly can, only thing is you must negociate about 100 cones in the process.

Good riders will learn allot more of balance and control than they thought, great riders will learn drifting the tires into corners, power slides on exits etc. The only limitation is how well you listen and understand instruction combined with your ability to put into practise what is taught.

Do you learn THAT at a trackday? You may experience it but the environment isn't set up to teach riders willing to learn that correct? This is not trail by error, you learn the "How & Why" your motorcycle responds to various input.

Check it out...
