Nice to meet you Tourist, I mean Joel, at the Ralley.

Jimmy is the man!

He demoed some drills on my bike when his cluncked out.

I won't ever wash it again!



I defnitely want to take some lessons from him this year.

mike, take the class, best $ spent. made me a better and safer rider. riding is now more fun. taming the big ktm needs more rider input than anything else.

good seeing the 3 of you there. got couple of pics of you and jeremy. will post them here.

+1.

Due to Jimmy's class, I have learned about threshold breaking and don't freak out when the front wheel starts sliding away from me.
Being taught to do wheelies was just a bonus!

Thanks for posting those pics of the ride NSFW. It was great talking with you and watching you work your camera the way you do.
Alex on the Duc was a hoot too. There was no way I was going to let him get out of my site with him on a street bike and me on the SMT and the wife on the back both of us running street tires Really wasn't too bad other than the mud. Just had to let it go where it was going to go. The rock garden detour was a hoot too.

that was a very loop we did and met a lot of nice peeps. wish i was on a bigger bike, my poor 350 trying to keep up with everyone......except going up and down on the rock garden where the small bike felt at home.

how could we forget. thanks for taking us to the rock garden. that was the highlight of the ride. amazing how the SMTs and the multi got up there.

good job for helping the organizers to lead and assist in the different rides.

Gps tracks?

Hey guys, I'm heading to Steamboat this coming weekend, and I'm thinking of riding these big bike loops from the 2013 rally. Does anyone have GPS tracks they could share so I can load them in for the trip?
Anyone know if the snow is cleared / these routes are open yet?
