Title: SOCAL SOOPERMOTO WURKED PHOR ME (just like hooked on phonics)
Post by: weig17 on 09/10/13 06:26PM
It's my birthday and I'll toot if I want to.
I have been ranting and raving about this stinkin' So Cal Supermoto company and the nut job Brian that runs it for about 15 months now....  I feel it's pretty warranted, here's why:  June of 2012 I signed up for a SoCal Supermoto school for the very first time. I fell in love with it from the very first session of the day.  Fast forward 3 months and it is September of 2012 - I built my first supermoto race bike and went racing for the first time. That's right, one year ago this month I raced Supermoto for the very first time and now one year later I am signed up to race in my 2nd PRO race and I am finishing on the podium in just about every single race that I enter.  This is all due in large part to the introduction to supermoto and the training that I have received along the way from So Cal Supermoto.
As a celebration for my one year anniversary of owning and racing a supermoto race bike,  SoCal Supermoto has completely redesigned and launched a new website.  Check it out:  www.socalsupermoto.com   

(ok.. perhaps its just a coincidence that they created a new site on my birthday... but thats the story I am sticking with)

I like.  There's a good reason Brian and his company keep growing, he's brought a lot of growth to the sport here locally.  Cheers to him.

I know Nikki very well. He was my biggest competitor in that first race a year ago. He and I had a great battle. 



About riding your own bike, you don't need to take the class. You can just pay the track fee which is $35 bucks or so and then ride all day!   But I really recommend you try the sport bike fundamentals or advanced sport bike skills class taught by Stuman sometime in your own bike. I learned a bunch and  I went into it with years of race experience ( MX and road race)

Great guys indeed, I been watching Niki win since he was nine! When I got my Fazer I had no gear so Gordie being the great guy he is went in the closet and pulled this suit out and gave it to me, He refused to take payment, Bikers are good people!
