Hey Mark, are you in this picture? I took the class in May, 2007 on my 650 Dakar in Primm, Nevada. I believe most of the guys had bikes 650cc and up?

Yep, that's me with the red Savanna suit and helmet hair. See you guys there.

I'm going to have to sign up for the next class. For street riding, nothing taught me better or gave me more confidence than going to Keith Code's school (levels 1-3) and this looks like the dirt equivalent.

Back after a great weekend in Keyesville. What a beautiful place. The Jimmy Lewis class was great, as anticipated. Learned some things that are already having a positive effect on my riding. Sometimes it's just one little thing that you never think of that can keep you from doing something better. I can't wait to practice the things I learned more in real world situations. It makes riding even more fun. Jimmy had a great crew that was always there to help when needed. Every one of them were great riders with a wealth of knowledge and willing to explain or demonstrate anything to anyone at any time. And, if you didn't already know, Jimmy is an amazing rider.

Thanks Jimmy, Heather, Charlie and Nate.

All of the students were very cool as well, and up for anything. I think some of them reached an excitement level that they weren't really expecting. That should really help desensitize them to some of the harder stuff in the future.

Thanks BJ, Bob, Carsten, Luanna, Mark, Mikko, Joel and Jon.

If anyone wanted to take this class but didn't, you should be bummed because it may be a little while before they offer another class.



ps: Mikko, heather knows where your helmet is.

Did I really leave it hanging from that tree?!

When I hung the helmet there I thought to myself "this is bad place to put your helmet, you're gonna forget it here"
And I did exactly that! That's hilarious.

I guess the only reasonable thing to do is sign up for the next available class to reclaim my brain bucket....

But what a great weekend that was! Huge thanks to the whole Lewis crew for making it happen.
