California Superbike School started as a vision of Keith Code, who began his advanced rider training courses in 1976. Keith is best known for his Twist of the Wrist books – where he documented riding principles that are still used today and were ground-breaking in the 80s and 90s.
“We are not famous racers or great businessmen but we’ve become recognised worldwide…because our system of training works and riders benefit from it.” – California Superbike School.
