Course Control

I started working at the California Superbike School on almost a fluke. I applied for a job at the school with little to no understanding of motorcycles or the industry. Riding on the back of a touring bike a couple of times was the extent of my experience. But I got the job, starting out as the assistant to Course Control, let me tell you it didn’t take long to realize how much fun motorcycles were and how important the school was to making better/safer riders and that helps everyone who rides. After my first year I was offered to move up to Course Control as the previous holder of the position had left. I took it and haven’t looked back since.

I have now been with the school longer then any other job that I have ever had. I get asked by friends and other people all the time if it ever gets tiring to be on the road so much, after so long I must want to do something else? I tell them no, I get to be around motorcycles which I love and I get to help make better riders. This is the best job that I have ever had. I work with people who are extremely professional and 1 for one love what they are doing, and at the same time it is one of the most relaxed environments I have ever been in. We all like to have fun and it shows in the way all the staff conducts themselves, and I think that that helps the students to relax too.
