Rhode Island Bike Night - This Thursday (4/24/14)

Hello Inmates.

We - Twisted Throttle - have decided to have a "Rhode Island Bike Night" the last Thursday of every "riding" month. Our HQ has become a bit of a destination and it seemed like a good idea. Besides the bitchin showroom we've added a cafe and a service center and it makes for a great place to ride to.

Since we can't just do things like everyone else this first one is going to have a bit of an adventure twist to it. We're flying in Brett Tkacs from Puget Sound Safety Off-Road. They are a west coast adventure training school that is going to be teaching a class the day after our Open House. Brett; who is a colorful charachter, is going to give a presentation on adventure riding.



Another cool thing that will be here is a [Free] 30 foot rock climbing wall that the National Guard is bringing down.

Hope some of you guys can make it down. Directions to 570 Nooseneck Hill Road, Exeter RI HERE

Kevin

Brett from Puget Sound Safety Off-Raod is on the ground today, tomorrow and Friday scouting routes for his Adventure School he'll be hosting next month. If any of you guys coming down know of any decent dual-sporty rides I'm sure he'd love to hear about them.

Here is a link to the PSSOR site.
http://pssor.com/pssor-events

It will be geared to beginners. The morning will be drills and technique at a farm close by the Twisted Throttle headquarters. Then a lunch break and a ride afterwards to put those skills into practice.

If you can make it to the bike night I'm sure Bret will answer all your questions.

Sure...

The school is on Sunday, May 25th. The day after our Open House. Some people are going to come to the Open House and camp locally then show up for the school the next day.It is basically a half day of training followed by a group ride to practice some of those skills. It should take most of the day. Since this is the first school we're offering it will be a Noob school. If you're a gnarly adventurer, this is probably not the school for you. Our intention is to turn our facility into a world-class training grounds for motorcycle riding of all "flavors". We are working with PSSOR and other trainers and schools to offer a robust curriculum. No info yet on future plans but user input will help to drive the types of programs we offer so don't hesitate to let us know what you want.

Here is a Facebook event with an overview LINKY and within that page there is a link to the registration page on the PSSOR website.

The weather is perfect today. It is in the high 50s right now and the sun doesn't go down until 7:37pm tonight. We've decided to give away some cool prizes including a Bluetooth helmet communicator. You can win that prize in the "Slow Drags"

Thanks for coming out! We had a pretty big crew for an April bike night. The people who came stuck around for quite a while and seemed to have fun. There were over 100 bikes here. Not bad for our first one! Hope to see y'all at the next one Thursday, May 29th.
