I rode motorcycles in Louisiana and Texas for 20 years, before moving to the SF Bay Area.

I found myself totally out of my element on twisty roads, I simply could not relax and enjoy them.

I purchased the book, Total Control, and that helped me greatly. I was now riding faster and smoother, with much more enjoyment.

I then took the 2-day Total Control ARC, and the very next day, went riding with a group of sport-bike riders, I was at the back of the pack, but I was riding a GL1800 Goldwing, and having a blast. The guys I was riding with were surprised that I was only seconds behind them,

That same weekend, I rode with a road-race instructor who complimented my riding, I've surprised many people at what I can do with a GL1800 since then,

I am also convinced that I have avoided several accidents since then, that would have been unavoidable before.

I feel that the segment on trail-braking alone is worth the money for the whole weekend, but it was all priceless.
