Vicky and I decided to drive out sat morning. I'm still nursing the collarbone back to health and she's new to the dirt (and pretty new to motorcycles in general), so we're a good pair.

Met a lot of new folks. Here's Frank's boys.

and they find a big kid to play with

Vicky on her new XT225, a 2000 bought with 147 miles on it. My new toy in the background.

Jeff starts his skills instruction, an excellent session. Thanks Jeff for doing this, I learned a lot and I wasn't even riding.

first topic - good cornering technique. Jeff demo's it.
Hard down the straight

Hard on both brakes before the turn

Look ahead around the corner

Weight forward, head over the triple clamp, look further down the trail, bike follows where the eyes look.

get on it!
