12/10/22 AZ Track Day


I know a guy that works with the AZ Cruiser Academy and he asked me if I wanted to sign up for a skills class and track day. I'm going to try it out since the track is 10 miles down the road from me, Podium Club at Attesa.
6870 S Bianco Rd, Casa Grande, AZ 85193

Check it out, it will cost you $250 for the day.

Arizona (AZ) Cruiser Academy provides everyday cruisers the opportunity to enhance their skills in an environment that combines slow-speed drills with a road-speed track environment that’s free of the dangers and distractions on public roads. And so much more.

Our unique learning experience creates a pro-motorcycle environment for which riders can improve their skills, learn new techniques in a slow-speed environment, and immediately apply their skills in a safe road-speed track environment.

Come enjoy learning from highly regarded and certified motorcycle coaches using the latest training curriculums and training environments. Practice your skills at road-speed on our world-class track facility – Podium Club @ Attessa – as you hone your cornering, braking, vision, filtering, and other safety-related skills – all while smiling and having a great time.

Join us at our next event and experience motorcycle training like never before.


Safety is a priority, so we offer rider groups separated by skill level / pace. Ensuring everyone is in their comfort zone


Riders are scheduled to rotate between slow maneuvering course, track practice and Coaching discussions on 30 minute session intervals

Gumby, is this a Cruiser type instruction?
Reason I ask is I found a Company that does the same type of training called Ride Smart.
They be at your track, and is not as cruiser related.
Imagine 40 Cruisers and a Connie.......

Yes, I know a bike is a bike, and twistie approach etc is basically the same on all.
The reason I mentioned it is just a fyi.
We had a "few" cruisers in our class.
Note that at the class I attended, passing was not allowed in the turns. because of that the cruisers held back most of the Connies that were there. Particularly when there was a series of turns.

Note that this was a Novice class. With your skills (ie; a bit above Novice), it may be an issue.
Lights and mirrors taped up for next weekend. Anybody else going?

Morning Ted,

They will split up riders by experience so I don't see the slower riders being a problem.
When we did the later sessions, we left the class and entered the Track when you got ready to go.
So the later groups were mixed, not on track as a scheduled group.

I bet your looking forward to the track day!
Being a nice guy, I decided to inspire ya with a photo of yer Hero in action.

We had a photographer out there and I am waiting for him to post pictures so I can snag some decent pics.

The turn out was all Harleys, a girl on a BMW S1000XR, and me. So it was a Harley passing festival all day long. Don’t get me wrong it was a blast, no potholes, gravel, or fear of animals made for an awesome peg dragging day.

I’m actually thinking about doing an article for the Concourier about my track day.

Here are a few pics
