CALIFORNIA SUPERBIKE SCHOOL: Annual mvagusta.net event!!

TO: All Forum Members and Guests

I hereby formally propose an annual event at or near the California Superbike School be organized. Let's plan for '08, maybe early summer. The same date(s) each year would be great. There's plenty of time to plan a quality schedule, which can include the School and other events. Good eats, good riding, and meeting everyone would be great.

We might even get some commercial support from MV-USA, dealers, etc. Apparel and accessories for sale, demo rides... the works. Almost a mini-VMD/Mid-Ohio.

Please post feedback. Thanx in advance.

interesting idea, a day course or 2 day camp?

perhaps trackday would be more practical and if instructions was needed we can hire a few pro racers?

Ben, Greg, and Others...

ANY format or venue would be great. I'm looking for several main components to such an event.

1) Annually recurring on the same date(s)/week(end)
2) Track time with professional instruction available
3) Strong MV theme, even though others welcome
4) Commercial involvement, even if no sponsorship
5) Structured, but informal schedule of other activities
6) LOTS of ride time - track AND public roads
7) Showcase area for all bikes to be parked/displayed for all to see
8) Local "Day Rides" before/during/after bulk of group schedule
(With "core dates" for the main events - say Fri/Sat/Sun, those who want only a 3-day could come and go. With "Day Rides", some could come early for Wed/Thu outings and/or stay late for Mon/Tue parts. Total would be one week.)

ROUGH OUTLINE:
Wed and Thu
Breakfast/Morning Ride
Lunch/Afternoon Ride
Dinner/Evening Ride
Fri thru Sun
Breakfast/Morning Track Time
Lunch/Organized Activities and Day Rides
Dinner/Evening Club Ride
Mon and Tue
Breakfast/Morning Ride
Lunch/Afternoon Ride
Dinner/Evening Ride

Regional sharing of trailers/towing could be arranged in groups for those coming from "afar".

Please more responses. Yes... No... Good... Bad...Other Suggestions... ?

Pacific Tracktime runs events similar to this at Laguna Seca...but without the commercial involvement. Maybe you could get them to partner?

I agree...let's shoot for '07. Laguna would be better. I'd also opt for a non-commercial venue as was proposed. Those of us that need some individual attention should be able to find someone to instruct us. Will it be MV only? I'd ride my Ducati 749R on the track but probably not the MV Corse. I could bring it along though for street rides.
