The fact that I could try the S1000RR for relatively little money and little risk at California Superbike School was a big motivator for me. And with all the coaching you get, you'll get the hang of it quickly, particularly as a level 1 student.
I would not want to do this particular school on a slow bike. Just because I would not want to have to deal with all mediocre riders on powerful bikes seeing me as their only chance to overtake someone.
