Track Day with TWO Indimotard at Kari Coimbatore

Motorcycles represent ‘freedom’ and ‘speed’. While we are adept at handling freedom, handling speed needs training and situational awareness – what better place to learn, unlearn and practice them, than at a riding school on a racetrack.

TWO (Throttle Wide Open) by Indimotard Adventures is first track riding school in India helping you get faster, better and become more aware of riding a motorcycle in the smoothest possible way.

My First Trackday – woohoo!!

What to Expect at TWO ?

Conducted at Kari Motor Speedway in Coimbatore, the 2-day riding school consists of theory-classes called Sessions and track riding time called Drill, where the techniques taught in the classroom are put to practice on the racetrack.

They have 3 categories or levels at the riding school:

  • Level 1 or L1 for beginners who have never ridden on a racetrack
  • Level 2 or L2 is the next level where advanced techniques are taught. L2 need completion of L1.
  • Open Sessions are pure track-riding time and has no classroom time. Open sessions need completion of L1.

I attended the L1 track sessions which covered motorcycle basics, survival reactions, vision, target fixation, body position, counter-steering, throttle control, cornering and brakes.
