Jimmy Lewis is teaching again!!

They're baaaack! Just got an email from Heather Lewis that the Jimmy Lewis Off road School is back up and they are teaching locally. There is a two-day off road class scheduled for the weekend of May 15-16 right near Lake Isabella, east of Bakersfield. Cost is $600, but everyone says it's the best farkle you can ever get for your bike.
I imagine the class would fill up soon, so hopefully there's still room left-. If there is, I'm definitely going. Who's with me?!

During the class you shut off your motors for instruction all the time, so, I'd bring the 640 because of the electric start.

The smaller the bike the more you will be able to push it when doing the drills. The easier it will be when you push too far. And the more you will get out of the class.

Cool; Thanks for the opportunity.

Anyone going to either Saturday or Sunday from Orange County? If so, perhaps we can make the trip up together.

3 MORE DAYS

It's almost time.

Saturday - November 6 - Jimmy Lewis Class

1-BiggieFalls/Eric (TE610)
2-h8chains/Joel (640E)
3-JAB/Jeff (XR600R or 380EXC)
4-foul plug/Chris (GS800)
5-loner/Paul (450EXC or 990SE)
6-grinder96/Turin (DRZ400)
7-MJS/Mark (950SE or DRZ400)
8-MrsMJS/Luanna (Yamaha XT?)
9-DirtTrailER/BJ (G650X)
10-Rev Kiecker/Mark? (G650X or ?)
11-Les Kristof/Les (?)
12-jnyrav/John (990A)

Whatever bike you decide to bring, make sure that it is as light as possible for the class. Take off any bags or cases, but leave any crash bars or protection. If your riding to the class and need to bring this stuff, be prepared to take it off before the class. Remove any accessories that can break off from a fall. Don't come to class with a full tank of gas. Only have enough for about 40 miles which will be more than enough.

Sunday - November 7 - Arrowhead Ride

1-BiggieFalls/Eric
2-h8chains/Joel
3-JAB/Jeff
4-foul plug/Chris?
5-loner/Paul
6-Rev Kiecker/Mark?
7-The Rider/Sean?
8-Eggroll/Luke
9-jnyravl/John
10-Nowwhat/Mike
11-traveltoad/Aaron?
12-RSC E/Roger

Anyone else that wants to join us on a ride from the Glen Helen area to Arrowhead for lunch and back on Sunday, it's open to everyone. Jimmy will not be there Sunday.
