You got the oh crap part right but the subframe survived.

Great pictures Joel. Hopefully some of the others also took some pics and will share them. I was too busy trying to rest between drills to remember to take pictures. If anyone wants to see the ones I did take in their original state, click on this link.

And yes, we will be doing more schools in the near future, I just got some very positive news about my Nevada permits.

JIMMY
That's great news about the permits and classes. Just remember to reinforce the pay first policy if you end up in Pahrump.

Here's a link to my only video. A fine display of balance by John (jnyrav) on his 990. Chris never touched the bike.

hope you get the permit jimmy...

the nevada desert will provide a variety of terrain. i am interested to learn riding in sand, rocks and hills. good chance by the time jimmy offers the next class, i'm already proficient in the basic skills and keeping my bike upright....
