Just in case people have been on track schools since that last time they were mentioned. Recommendations? I'm getting a track school day or days for my bd. I'd like to use their bikes, not mine and I'd like to have a little whizzy round the track, but more importantly learn for life, not for racing. Where shall I go, bearing in mind that I'm in the SW of England and, seeing as I'm not paying for it, I could go abroad, if there's good uns in say Jerez or somewhere. Any suggestions, experiences to be shared? Cheers

Scarver, chances of falling off are incredibly low - I agree that using your own bike is also a good idea
California Superbilke School also have a pretty good rep, but a bit less flexible about "start here, do session 1 which covers this" - also track-biased & less track time. Their bikes all the time though.

That's interesting for me - but how many crashes have you seen? I am vaguely interested in doing another track day but at the one and only track day I have attended:
Track days.....you always get crashers. Usually the first bike to go is a Duke or a tripple - ime. Don't know why.
