Ride with Kevin Schwantz | Barber

Motorcycle Riding School

Think of the Kevin Schwantz Motorcycle Riding School as the perfect gift to yourself. The motorcycle equivalent of a luxury health spa, you will find yourself being pampered by top name instructors, brand new Suzuki motorcycles and one of the most fun, if not the most exciting, racetracks in America: Barber Motorsports Park in Birmingham, Alabama. As well for 2010, Kevin will be holding additional schools at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway the week prior to the MotoGP race. Throw in the chance to learn directly from Grand Prix World Champion Kevin Schwantz on the track and in the classroom, and a few days at Barber (or Indy) will do more for your stress levels than goats milk yogurt and bicycle rides in the country.

As arguably one of the most naturally talented and fastest motorcycle road racers of all time, Kevin Schwantz has found a way to give something back to the sport he loves. The price of admission at Barber is $1,799 for a two-day package. Suzuki and Honda motorcycles are available from the school at a cost of $200 per course plus damage deposit. The Indianapolis School is priced with motorcycle rentals included for $2,750.

As well, if you don’t want to bring your own equipment, top quality gear from Arai and Dainese is available for rent, and all the bikes come shod with brand new Michelin tires. Aimed at everyone from the beginning rider to the expert racer in need of some quality track time, the Schwantz Motorcycle Riding School is the ultimate track experience.
