Moto Show

So re I leave this afternoon, I get a ring from Lakota. He's just arrived at the Moto show, and he's spied some handicapped parking right at the corner of the Convention Center...Sweet dealio for the recovering monopod.

Apparently, Lakota and KeithMcKenney saw each other for the first time since the trip. They hugged over a K1600....much like you might expect sarafins descending from the heavens to look.

Like bug to a light BMW is first up. We mull around for a bit and run into Blixa! As we are talking to her, Ross from the Performance center saunters by. We start talking about the classes and how we really want to come back down for something new. With that 5 of us are whisked away for a 45 min conversation with the new Moto Training lead.

He's agreed to swap some emails and work something out. We figure 6-10 riders doing a 2-day off road class which plays on the GS Trophy course. So we've got 5 riders (J4S, Dorito, Blaster, Keith, Lakota) and if you are remotely interested, please throw your name in the hat. Need to work pricing out still, but I think they want to use us as guinea pigs, so it might be a good dealio.

Before we leave BMW, now an hour later, don't forget to pick up your 20% off coupon. Its good for BMW apparel and accessories (no parts this year).

Make sure you stop by and see the powerful Honda Grom. 7HP and 12" rims.

JT Motosports is doing -20% off Klim and free shipping

Cornerspin is doing -14% off classes that are booked this weekend

Shoei is doing -40% off some helmets like the Neotech, 1100

Ended up with a nice dinner, Asian Spice on 7th/H street.

It was good to see you. I really appreciate the Cornerspin tips. Steve and I will definitely be spending a weekend in the dirt in NC. Unfortunately, I missed out on the BMW coupon but I'll manage. I'll be dreaming about the S1000R tonight meeeeow...

Shoei is there there as a manufacturer. I believe that Colemen Powersports is doing the actual sales. Also of note, Mortons had Shoei's on sale last month.

Thinking of heading over to Morton's around lunch time if anyone wants to join me. I also have three tickets to the Motorcycle show if anyone wants them.

Initial thoughts on class requirements at BMW

These are a few of the things I would like to see for a more advanced class.

Start out with a quick warm up with the basics;
Clutch control
Slow speed maneuvers
Braking

And then move on to more difficult exercises or areas I need improvement on/GS trophy challenge type training;
Sand: straight line, cone weave, turning
Gravel: straight line, cone weave, turning
Hill climbs
Hill climb with an obstacle
Traversing across hills
Small jumps
Ruts
Individual obstacles and then a course with many different obstacles to help tie it all together, almost like the finalists day at the GS trophy challenge.

These are just my initial thoughts so I reserve the right to modify them in the future.
