CALIFORNIA SUPERBIKE SCHOOL was founded by none other than Mr. Keith Code. Keith was the first man to observe and document the underlying principles which govern the art of riding motorcycles For Keith Code, his life-long passion has been motorcycles – fast, agile ones. Internationally recognized as the foremost authority on riding instruction, his four decades of accomplishments reveal a man whose unique vision has shaped the motorcycling world like no other.
In the 1970’s, after years of professional riding, Keith began private instruction sessions with amateur racers, some of whom quickly became national champions. His success teaching road racing prompted the media to dub him “Road-racing Guru”. Ever the pioneer, he began to systematically develop written materials regarding the technology of riding, the first in his field. After retiring from professional racing, Keith founded the world-renowned CALIFORNIA SUPERBIKE SCHOOL – CSS with the goal of developing the most comprehensive professional school for the motorcycle enthusiast.
Over the past 35+ years, 240,000 students have improved their riding skills and cornering capabilities at CSS, including dozens of regional, national, and world champions. Today there are 3 permanent schools except USA, in Australia, UK and Greece. “A Twist of the Wrist” (vols. I and II) and “The Soft Science of Road Racing Motorcycles”, his instructional books, and their respective DVDs are international best sellers.
Keith holds many responsibilities at CSS, including directing his company’s expansion and marketing plans. His passion for sharing the exhilaration of motorcycle riding with his students sets this school apart. He has standardized the method of instruction for all his riding coaches, maintaining a consistent level of quality teaching. In addition, Keith holds several patents in motorcycling technology and has spoken before the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) discussing his advances in motorcycle rider training.
He has been honored by numerous organizations, and been named Motorcyclist of the Year (1990) by Motorcyclist Magazine and Los Angeles Citizen of the Year (1986) by the L.A.P.D. In the early 90’s he also produced the country’s first ever TV series covering motorcycle road racing. According to Keith, his greatest accomplishment was being quoted in the Guggenheim Museum catalogue for its “Art of the Motorcycle” show. Keith is as nimble handling the media spotlight as he is cornering on one of his motorcycles at 140 M.P.H. — and he does it with passion, style, and exuberance.
