Question off road riding class??

The off road riding class is a great idea!! With a location for availability providing a small track with technical climb or two and how to stump jump you would be in business. With a time frame of once a month like first Tuesday of the month from 630 to 730. With a 10.00 cover for the first few months until you get sponsorship you would have a profitable business and a following and website. Not that donating 10% of those said profits to cancer research or UNICEF would be charitable and bring good Karma to you and your family. Nor am I saying that its easy to create a start up profitable business and its just that easy.... or am I.....???

didn't say training class. there's to much legal crap involved in that. i sad training day. Meaning setting up some things to ride through, some things to try your skill on, and someone to watch you and give you tips on how to improve. oh and a piece of paper to sine saying you cant sue the land owned if you hurt your self or your bike or anything else for that matter.

Now if ya want a real class. then we need to look into this.

I was thinking getting his DVD and everyone working on what he shows in there as a group.

I train myself to be a better rider every time I leave my driveway, every gravel road I go down, and on every obstacle I cross... Never been much of a book or DVD learner. More of a try and see what works and what doesn't.

A Training Day would be very helpful for me but most likely not others. I'm green when it comes to off road. I will learn with time and agree that I do learn each time I ride but a course would push me further up the learning curve faster. That one single track ride I took at the DFR nearly doubled my confidence and knowledge so I'm up to a 1.5 on a scale of 20 now!

I just need to find some places to ride that are tougher than a gravel road but doable for my GSA and get it done. That and have a partner rider for safety.

His DVDs are great tools. I tell anyone starting in the dirt to get them and do what he tells you to. But seeing him in person is a whole diffrent thing. I've never been tto one of his classes but I've seen him on the track and kept him is sight for a few turns. Holy crap he's fast.

I have an idea. Ill let y'all know what I put together and see who's intrested.

Went to AJ's for happy hour drinks with my girlfriend, and saw a red klr650 & blue vstrom parked at el sombrero. I'm guessing its a couple of inmates?
