Great pictures Joel and Mark. Here are some of mine.

A triple action shot of Joel coming back in for more demonstrations.

Jimmy could probably ride while shifting with his hand.

Remember, Joel is Pilipino. He pronounces F's like P's. When he tells you he was up all night Partying, you must take this into consideration to know what he really means. PYYPP

Sorry Joel. I wasn't going to post these. But I want to become a better rider, so I will do anything my teacher asks of me.











I think Jimmy was showing Joel that his bike will actually go beyond second gear.


Thanks again for a great class Jimmy.

They didn't do any double-up when I took the class a few years ago. What was the objective?

The riding double was firstly to show how important having good control of the throttle, clutch and brakes is and then to show how to be relaxed and not tighten up, because then the balance goes out the window. It is pretty easy to feel it when riding double, both for the rider and the passenger (who is, in these cases, tightening up!) And it can break down some fear barriers as well.

Plus it was easier than walking up and down the hill too!

Puck that. You just wanted a Joel squeeze.

It's okay. We forgive you.
