Ken Hill Dirt Days
The Ken Hill Dirt Days are 2 half days of very intensive motorcycle training working on the same skills as you would on the street or track, except on a small 150cc type dirt bike. The class is not about teaching you how to dirt track, it is about taking the same language and techniques I use for the street or track and applying them in a traction limited environment. Classes are limited to 8 riders to maximize 1-1 coaching and track time.
- Slowest Point of the Corner
- Brakes Application(Front and Rear)
- Throttle Application
The cost is $400 per day and that includes: Track Fee, Coaching, Bike Rental and Gear Rental. If you have your own bike (under 230cc) deduct $50 per day. Water and Snacks are provided and weather updates will happen as the event gets closer. Classes are held at Feel Like A Pro in Kelseyville, Ca.
