    I was hoping to go the the South Carolina course in October but it looks like the rental bikes are all reserved so now I am considering waiting until Spring 2023 or I could bring my own bike to SC.

    My bike is a 2022 Ninja 650, no ABS. No modifications.

    Any recommendations for using rental vs my ninja?

    thanks

    I found the answer on the website. Looks like its okay to bring your own bike.

    Hey SJ,
    Sorry for the delay! About 80% of our students bring their own. When I did the school the first time, I brought my own from 19h away. Worth it!

    Alex, that is good to know.
    Just curious, do people bring various types and sizes of bikes?
    thanks

    Hey SJ,

    Yes! Everything from Sumos and Road Glides to full-fledged superbikes.

    So people bring some nice bikes that they use for daily rides?

    I just upgraded from a Ninja 650 to something with slightly more power but it has ABS, cornering ABS, traction control, quickshifter and is just a smoother,solid ride and it doesn’t engine brake as hard. I didn’t know if I should bring my old bike/650 to class as its a fine bike thats less expensive but doesn’t have the newer technology. I was told by someone I should use it in class since it has less power 75 HP vs 110 and it cost less or just bring what you enjoy riding? Sorry, I am probably overthinking all this. Thanks and I apologize for asking all these questions. I just want to get things right. .

    Hey SJ!

    The lack of electronics means the bike won’t mask mistakes – a useful thing at a school for sure. That being said, weigh that option against the idea of learning and trying new things. I’d recommend bringing the bike you’re most comfortable with.
