What Makes Us Different? Riding School First Approach

Fishtail Riding School is a track day format riding school that puts all its energy into making you an all around better rider. We are NOT a racing school or an open track day format. Our system is designed to take riders of all skill levels and enhance and develop their skills both on and off the track.

We break each day into 3 groups; A (Advanced) Group, B (Intermediate) Group and C (Novice) Group. Each group has it’s own rules, procedures and curriculum based on the skill level of the riders. If this is your first time in a closed-course environment, you will automatically start in the C Group to be sure you are 100% acclimated to do’s an don’ts of riding at a track as well as our style of rider instruction.  Each group has a dedicated cadre of instructors, and you will be paired with an instructor and 1-3 fellow students for the day. Instructor/rider grouping is based on experience, the type of motorcycle you ride and any personal preferences you may have communicated to us.

We are fortunate to have a very diverse group of riders and instructors. There is plenty of 1 on 1 instruction as well as on-track video feedback. This allows us to be able to critique riding mechanics and make suggestions for you to adjust in the next session

Please don’t hesitate to reach out to us if you have any questions. We look forward to having you join us this season. Oh, and as an added bonus, no one does lunches like Fishtail. Lobster rolls, anyone?…

Our Spirited Learning Locations / AKA Tracks

Club Motorsports, Tamworth NH

This is the track everyone wants to ride. Simply put, there is nothing like this track anywhere else in North America.  From the lowest point to the highest point on the track is 250’, and you’ll go up and down the mountain 4 times per lap. 

Palmer Motorsports Park, Palmer MA

Located in the hills of western Massachusetts, Palmer is a 2.3-mile-long roller coaster.  While it doesn’t have the most vertical of any track in North America (190’ from the lowest to the highest point), it does have the most aggressive climbs and descents.  

Caanan Motor Club, Caanan NH

The CMC is a 1.3-mile-long technically challenging road course with extensive run off areas to promote a safe environment for all track users. The track was designed to run in both directions to give a total of 2.6 miles with nine major turns.  Smaller-displacement motorcycles really shine here.
