Its a closed group, so in the right upper corner there should be a button to request to become a member. Click that and as soon as you are added, you should be able to see all posts as well as be invited to any future events we are going to hold.

Here is the link:

https://www.facebook.com/groups/593449573998904/

We also have a Facebook page now:
https://www.facebook.com/MotogymkhanaNyc

Like and tell your friends. Page is for information purposes, while group is more for scheduling events and open discussion.

This should make it a little bit easier to keep discussions and questions pertaining just to local events in a more organized fashion.

Now if you are not on FaceBook, let me know in PM here, and I'll let you know the dates via text or e-mail.
why not just keep the information here ?

Because it provides a way to invite other riders in the area who aren't on ADV. Also easier to keep the information concise for anyone new coming in.

The general information such as videos, riding technique and questions, ride reports as well as an occasional brain fart from me will still be here.

However I don't think its a good idea to clutter up this thread with conversations about scheduling and who can make it or who can not to each local event we are going to have. Of course not to alienate people without Facebook account, I can still be reached via PM here, and will gladly give you all the information about the next get together we are having.

I understand involving more people that don't know the internet is not facebook, but why LINK to facebook from here ?

its so much better to have a real web site, archive of info with hosted pictures and videos instead of a volatile "feed" that someone else controls.

just sayin. :)

The weather here in AK finally cleared up enough that I was able to spend a few minutes doing GP8 in the parking lot after work yesterday (Friday). Still running wide around the cones, and having a hard time gassing, then braking in the short space between tennis balls, but I'm starting to get better with the head-snap as I start the turn

It was cool reading about the police rodeo practice above and hearing how the cops were "like crazy close" to the tank; I was doing that, too. Maybe I'm starting to get a little better at this, lol!

@Vulfy, props for the growing interest there in NY! I'm still hoping for some interest here in my neighborhood (or to hook up with others here who are practicing in their own parking lots). The physical issues that kept my wife off of her bike last summer are clearing up, and she wants to spend some time practicing in a parking lot before hitting the streets on the new-to-her CB750, so maybe I can sneak a little gymkhana in without her realizing it

Out of curiosity, I'll be in the Seattle area later this summer...anyone practicing there?

I really enjoyed my first go at Moto Gymkhana, here is a quick riders eye view during a practice run.

Does this kind of gathering happen here in Joisey?
How does one get invited to these things?

nice meeting you all on saturday. reviewing the video i took, the first clip from the end of the course i did not care for. everyone is mostly far away. until they get towards the end. the other clips i took after borrowing jezza's helmet strap came out as jpg. turned the machine off and on 5 times but somewhere in the getting the thing mounted onto my helmet i switched the go pro to stills instead of movies. sorry. which means i took 5 stills.

looking forward to another session in a couple weeks.

I managed an hour long trip today, between the rain. Did get SOAKED coming back though, pants are still drying

I'm having so much fun doing this though. I'm trying to get to the level of full lock turn with no hands, which is a bit tougher than at speed and shallower lean angle.
