Thumb First day went well!

It was a great day at class, so much so that Dorito and I signed up for the ride through the countryside on Sunday. Which means 3 full days of riding then the drive home sunday night..probably arriving at 0100 or 0200 and then going to work. I am sure glad I got my priorities straight...ride baby ride! Pictures will follow later tonight.

What a fabulous day! The weather was perfect, the facility is wonderful and the southern charm is second to none.

Lots of great exercises: balance, steering, wash boards, small hills, locking front brake and emergency braking.

Nice reception atrium at "the Center":


Notice how happy Joints4sale is to open his wallet at 0845:


Blaster's ADV wave after a long day (apparently he's still feeling fiesty)


It was a B.E.A.U.T.I.F.U.L evening, so we decided to stroll to dinner

Good grub to be had at Eat at Joes:


Lakota ate all this by himself :)


This little guy was a bit shy when everyone was singing the "chicken song"


No fear though, Joints4sale can help out:

Well, Toad wins the award for the most dramatic fall. The instuctors always said there are multiple paths at each exercise....however, in this case the road less traveled involved a 8 Ft static drop test!

But honestly, the folks at the center were fabulous from bike recovery and bike fix (bent the brake lever) and rider aide.

The lesson learned was NEVER look down, especially when there is a 8 foot drop that is down. Other than a small hit to his tail bone, Toad walked away (notice he still smiling).

Alas, 4 of 5 SMIBs hold fall awards for the day. But strangley, we can hardly wait for the tommorrow and the sand pit!

My money is on Lakota, I guessing no award for him...

Toad is grinning because it wasn't his bike

I was the first fall of the class day and had 3 others later. Dorito was my buddy lifter on the last one. Toad's fall was spectacular.

Class is very good although very tiring at the end of the day. Fortunately for me Dorito and Blaster have been me providing taxi service.
the BMW facility is about 6 miles from the hotel.
