The results of the riding school poll are in!!

And Super Dave Rosno's Team Visionsports school has demolished the competition recieving a whopping 90% of the votes. Thank you to all for your input. With that in mind, the first tenative date of his school is going to be April 03, 2003. I see that a few of you will already be attending. I propose that this be our first local group track day school of the year.Cost for early registration is $225.00 per person. Who else is interested in attending?

According to Super Dave's site, leather rentals are available in limited quantity. It costs $50.00 for the rental and an additional $100.00 damage deposit. Any further questions can be answered on his website at:

I’d like the earlier date, but the weather can be awfully skechy 4/3. Any details on the school, is this just a general class, or geared to your ability level? I’m thinking about the VRS school, but I already can get around the track, I need specific instruction on where and how to drop time.

I could convinced into renting my race bike for those who are interested…

The price quoted is the standard early registration fee and is good up to 45 days prior to the class. So I figure you'd have to register before the 2nd week in February to get the discount.

this is the same reason why i hesitate to do a school, except i will reprhase it. I need specific instructions on how to ride my bike better (body positioning, braking,bike set up etc,etc) so i may lower my times.

What is the instructor to student ratio?

Now how many of those votes were made by Dave himself?

Even tho I only lasted about 45 minutes in his class, I don't have anything bad to say about it, and look forward to attending for longer than 45 minutes next year

Hey Jim jinx ya again. Daves class is excellent. Before I had to take Omniglh to the hospital, Super Dave gave me two pieces of advice and the next session I dropped a whole second. This is why I will attend all of his classes. Also he has three riding levels and excellent instructors. So I will see all you CLSB people out there right!?
