Yeah, this is definitely going to take some getting used too. I'm going to keep at it and see how this works out for me. Luckily I'm only in for $60 for this set.

Oh good, back to motorcycles related discussions. I'm still rocking the foamy ear plugs. I also haven't been able to get over the price of the customs, so the free ones I get at work will have to do for now.

Hey Trust, I can't get that dude to answer or call me back... /shrug

Hitting up the vendors on the last day of an event always seems to work in my favor. In this case, I caught them at Barber on Sunday around 2pm. They'll do anything to make a sale at that time of day.

Laugh Learning From The Master!

What a great weekend 21 of us had learning from "The Man" Ryan Young!

Just getting started!



The steeds stalled up for the night.



The party Saturday night..."Dust To Glory" playing at the Flyin H Drive-In, some great pizza with brews, and one sweet fire. Don't get any better than that.



A pic with Ryan after loading the RYP Sherco Team bus and getting ready to take off for Kentucky. What an epic weekend!

Looks like you guys had a great time TW. I was thinking the price was expensive but seeing all involved and the team bus being there I now see what a bargain it was. Even the movie thrown in Maybe a heavy pig DS class with street tires is next

Expensive!

Try getting 2 days worth of motocross or enduro training from a 6 time AMA Professional Champion. This clinic was dirt cheap, and the ladies did an incredible job with lunch both days and dinner Sat night, which by the way were also included in the clinic fee.

Ask Tac-T, ifixfords and GreyEagleRider what they thought about the clinic...bet they'll tell you the same thing. Had 2 on the stand by list that didn't get in. So well received by all that Ryan has agreed to make this an annual clinic stop, and he only does 2 or 3 clinics a year.

We did have a guest appearance by a Husaberg.

It was indeed a great weekend! I learned a lot and met a bunch of new friends. Everything was top notch, could not have asked for more.

Ryan Young is an excellent teacher, he makes it all look so "easy". Inside joke . I don't remember when I ever got a better motorcycling bargain.

Thanks again to TW, GreyEagleRider, Ryan and the ladies for making it a great weekend !

Sometimes a motorcycle is just the distraction you need to get thru the tough times Brother! Prayers been going your way for awhile now.

Come on up and I'll put you on a bike without a seat sometime. You'll be addicted!

That's what I meant, at first glance it looked pricey but after seeing Ryan is a true pro, makes his living that way, it would be like getting driving lessons for two days by Richard Petty. You can't even touch his driving classes(which he doesn't teach) for close to that. I don't know how you do stuff like that TW but you never cease to amaze with all the stuff you get involved with.

Glad the trials camp weekend was a success. The best money I've ever spent on bikes has been on training. And gas, of course. :-)

Clinic was top notch, no doubt. Half the cost of a similar clinic offered from the TTC but with a 6 time champ teaching it. Learned a ton, plus great time with great bunch of riders. An all around great experience.
