What they teach doesn't really apply to any particular bike, shoot they use to have a Harley only school and I think it was the same drills that they teach for sport bikes.
@ shaunmed if you have a chance pick up a copy of Twist Of The Wrist II. The school uses it as a basis for the classes. Good luck and let us know how it turns out.

|leb1100hyper||I love my hyper but used their bmw for level 1 at Sears Point a year ago. After the class I was searching Craigs list for a used one. It was so easy to ride and I'm not crazy about sport bikes. Power comes on gradual, unlike my 1100 evo, and pulls harder and harder as the rev's build. As much fun as the low end torque of the hyper is, it could be a handful on the track because it comes on so abruptly. After the class, I told my wife that was the most fun I ever had. Period. I was out in April for level 2 but we got rained out and now I'm signed up for Oct 1 at Sears Point again. If you want to take more than one class, sign up way ahead of time as I tried signing up 6 weeks ahead of the class and it was already full. The classes fill up early. They are popular for a good reason.|

Then you have to learn to use the brakes. CCS doesn't split riders by ability, so you have to do their exercises in every session.
Then, it turns out these other track day orgs have their own training sessions that are comparable to CCS, while being quite a bit cheaper.
One thing I did in 2000 was fly out to California to ride Laguna Seca for a CCS two-day camp riding their rentals. That was a blast, and I otherwise would never drag my bike from Ohio to CA for a track day. That is probably the only circumstance that would get me in to a CCS track day event in the future.

|shaunmed||I'm planning on going on Saturday in September and if I like it I'll sign up for the next day as well. I'd love to use my hyper but i think the benefits of using a track ready bike and not having to worry about malfunctions and buying new tires outweighs the cons. anyway I rode superbikes my whole life and it just made riding the hyper that much easier.|

As mentioned didn't see any religious literature of any sort there. I take a bit of a different attitude tho, if they chose to put scientology literature out next to the tire brochures and such, i'd have no problem with it. It'd be my choice to pick it or tire brochures up.
EIther way , no biggie.
