Depends what is near you, I did the Keith Code Superbike school, it's the only one I have personal experience with, but I've heard good things about Skip Barber's school as well. Just a little tip, when you go in there and take the school, you are gonna hear some things that you think are just plain not true (techniques, and how some of them work) but you can't be set in your own ways, trust the instructors, and let them mold you, the riders who do the best at the schools are the one's who are most willing to learn.

Also have fun with that RS250 out there, it's gonna be a blast, you'll be amazed how much more corner speed you can carry than even a 600. By the end of the class when all the litrebike and 600 guys are looking at their tires trying to guess if they need to change it, you can happily move along knowing your tires are gonna last you another 2 or 3 trackdays. :lol

Anyone know if there are schools in the midwest. I live in Wisconsin and I think there are some schools that move around from state to state and someone correct me if Im wrong but I thought there was one that came up to Elkhart Lake.

How much is the school? Do they give CCS license?

100, no lic, just experience, having a closed track is worth it. I'm going to take the Ed Bargy school for my Lic. It's really 150, but if you have riding exp., it's only 100. Go to their site for more info. rpmtrackschool.com

Local schools that offer licensing are Martinelli's, Kinsey's and Bargy's. I've only taken Martinelli's of the ones I listed. It was one on one instruction, pretty helpfull and reasonable in price. I know Frank Kinsey and have heard great things about his no brakes class. I'll probably take that one soon. No feedback on Bargy's school, sorry.

Which one of these would be the best?
I am doing the RPM school on the 22nd of this month so when I come back I will let you know how it is. I was signed up to do Keith Code school last Sept but I got into my accident and broke my leg :eek: However, the guys that did go said it was very good and very informative!!

It's actually $200 if you have no riding experience on a track and $150 if you do :)
