Message from Dat: As many of you know from your training at PRS, I have trained under the mentorship of Reg Pridmore (3 Time AMA Superbike Champion, AMA Hall of Fame) for the last 17 years. He has taught me how important it is to be smooth, focused and in control of my machine - I have done my best to pass some of the things I have learned from Reg to you. It's been 17 years and I still learn something new every time I slow down, listen and apply what Reg teaches. It's been somewhat of a tradition for the last 14 years that many of my former students continue their training with the very person I learned from, so we are proud to announce - 2012 Streets of Willow with CLASS Schools.
We are also going to visit Rich Oliver at his Mystery School for a 2 day fun camp! Rich Oliver ( 5 Time AMA 250 GP Champion) will teach you how to maintain control of a motorcycle when it does go sideways - of course we learn on the dirt. The course includes flat track riding drills, time trials, and fun close competition on our awesome flat track complex! This course will help build your confidence if your motorcycle does lose traction on the pavement. I can personally tell you that this course saved my life when my fuel line (on my Ducati) broke loose and released all the fuel on my back tire, I maintained control of my motorcycle because of Rich's training.
As a PRS grad - you have FOUR OPTIONS:
- CLASS SCHOOLS at Streets of Willow Raceway, Rosemond, Ca (Ninja 250 rentals provided by FEEL LIKE A PRO)
- MYSTERY SCHOOL at Fresno, CA. (Yamaha 125 Dirt Bike Provided)
- Do both schools
- Spend money on an exhaust pipe or cool brake levers that does nothing to increasing your skill set.
Combine your training from CLASS and the MYSTERY schools, and you are on your way to becoming a smoother rider, having better control and a better understanding of what your motorcycle can do!

At the Streets of Willow, it is simply not a race day.
This course is NOT FOR YOU if you think track days or schools are really race days. You have attended numerous track days/schools and determined that you came in 1st place, because you passed an instructor following a student. You are simply not there to race against other unsuspecting students or to show how fast you can go. If this applies to you, you can always join WMRC (British Columbia), WMRRA (Washington) or OMRRA (Oregon) - that's where the big boys/girls play.
CLASS and the Mystery School is NOT a race school. Speed in never an issue - it is all about practicing your skills in a controlled environment. Everybody's safety is paramount at the schools.

Last year we flew from Vancouver to LAX, then car pooling in rental vans to our destinations. Flight costs last year were around $300 (seat sale with Air Canada and WestJet). We will have to wait and see as time gets closer.
We will break the group up into rooms of 4 to help with the cost.
We will assign van groups according to the class groups (CLASS, MYSTERY or BOTH). We will all help each other in terms of van pooling to accommodate different arrival times. However, if your arrival time is too far outside the group's arrival times, you are responsible for your own means of transportation.
