Interest in Coaching Day for WA Adventure Riders

I ran into John Staines (West Coast Trail Bike Safaris) while down the SW a few days ago and mentioned that it would be a good thing if he ran another big bike (Adventure) riding/coaching day at his riding park (1200 acres) near Kirup in the SW.

John was keen and as a result has advised me that he would be prepared to run a one day coaching class on the 26th July (Sunday) this year.

No further details worked out yet (itinerary, prices etc)...

I am throwing it out there to WA riders, are you interested should John get it off the ground. I see it as good day doing what we all live to do and gain some important new skills at the same time!

Not necessarily dependant on whether there is interest in the above, John is also prepared to run a two day coaching class later in the year (November) at his riding park utilising the considerable skills of Stephen Gall and himself.

Again, I am throwing it out there to WA riders for comment!

No attachment to John or the riding park, I simply asked when the opportunity arose and John has responded......

Thanks

Grog

Nice work Greg. November sounds like a plan.
July conflicts with work.

PJJen has been out with staino for a half day solo coaching session. Good guy, great coach. Think most people would learn a heap from the guy.

I also did a two day big bike training ride a few years back with John, on the r1100gs. Definitely recommended!
I would consider going again, if the price was right.
Now I have a new ignition switch, I might get around the ride a bit quicker too! . Bloody thing kept cutting out.

Considering the short time this thread has been active and the positive replies on it, I believe John will offer either one or hopefully two coaching days this year.

That's terrific............

I will get back to him and firm up the dates, itinerary and price etc.

New 2 Advrider

G'day all,
New to the forum & Adv riding. Looks like a great opportunity to both learn a few things and meet up with like minded riders.
Have had a look on the Safari Park web and noticed 15 positions available for 26th. Will keep an eye on thread to see how things progress.
Cheers,
