The following is from STAR Motorcycle Schools...
Two-time AMA Champion Jason Pridmore's STAR Motorcycle School has released its schedule for 2011. "We're going to every corner of the U.S. in 2011, from New Jersey to Florida, and Oregon to California," said Jason. "We're doing more school days than in 2010, and we're going to some new tracks like Blackhawk Farms and some old favorites like MotorSport Ranch in Texas."
"We're doing seven National Guard days, which I'm really excited about," continued Jason. "We ran our first military school in September of last year at Topeka and it was great. The school is something that the military needs, and we can provide a more street-based instruction and apply that at the track, adding different drills that tailor the program to the National Guard members."
"We've also got our new 1 On 1 program, where a maximum of two students work with me and one other instructor per day at Chuckwalla Valley Raceway. Our 1 On 1 schools are for people who want to get every question answered in a more exclusive atmosphere. From the start of the day to the end there is one on one interaction, video and dry erase board communication. Lunch is also included and on Saturday night all weekend participants get together for a nice dinner at Fantasy Springs Casino. Also included is a two-day STAR School of choice so the student can come and work on their skills that they learned at the 1 On 1 school."

As always, STAR School runs a two-group format, one for street riders and newcomers to the track who are most comfortable at a lower pace, the other for more advanced students and those with track experience who want to explore their limits with fewer restrictions. The STAR School curriculum will teach you skills in shifting, braking and steering techniques, body position, reference points, visual skills, concentration, smoothness as well as much more. Jason's two-up rides are always part of the instruction!
