Superbike Coach, Northern California?s comprehensive track and street school, has announced its 2012 event schedule. Coach Can Akkaya has added some exciting new courses to his already impressive list of offerings, providing valuable instruction to allow motorcyclists of all skill levels to meet their riding goals.
Since 2008, the Superbike Coach program has been providing motorcycle riders with the skills necessary to perform their best on the race track, and now Coach Akkaya has expanded his curriculum to provide street riders the same level of personal, professional training adapted to everyday riding. From license preparation to advanced rider training, the Superbike Coach programs provide the necessary instruction to make any motorcyclist safer and more skilled on the road or on the racetrack.
“Motorcycle racing, and riding in general, has done a lot for me throughout the years,” said Can Akkaya, owner and instructor at Superbike Coach. “The programs I offer at Superbike Coach allow me to share those experiences and skills with riders at all levels, helping them become better, safer riders, on the street or the track.”
Superbike Coach courses don?t require a fancy track bike or tons of experience. Riders can use their own motorcycles or rent one of the school?s specially designed instruction bikes, and every class is personally tailored to the needs and skill levels of the individual students. Beginners and professionals alike have benefited from Coach Akkaya?s years of experience and professional one-on-one training techniques.
The highlights of the 2012 schedule are the May 28th Laguna Seca event – a trip to the Mecca of North American motorcycle racing, including bikes, track and coaching – and the July 10th Wheelie/Knee Down combo event – a chance to act like a hooligan without fear of legal consequences – but every Superbike Coach program guarantees excitement and education.
