Perfect weather, a great crew of California and back east instructors, a wonderful group of students, and just a fantastic time! All of that and not one rider down! So how do we follow that up? How about two more days this fall? October 20 and 21 are now on our schedule.Hope you'll join us!

Huge THANKS to all of you who made Reg's Fast Safe Seminar at SZP CLASS HQ a smashing success! Our awesome SoCal team of CLASS instructors, along with American Honda's Ray and Cody Blank, Jon Seidel and Mike Snyder, plus Shoei Premium Helmets Matthias Beier made it a fast paced, fun and informative 3 hours. OMG Hot Dogs - voted Best of the Best in Ventura County - was on hand with the grub and well, a fantastic time was had by all.

We had a great time and I think you did too.
