After a few "kisses" of the knee to the asphalt a few sessions back, finally got to properly knee drag on both sides. Right side was much harder to get the knee down for some reason, but I persevered.

This pavement I'm on, just eats up the knee pucks that came with the pants.
I've been having so much fun, half of them already ground away.

Riding home chuckled at the idea that thinking to yourself, that you need new knee sliders after you just learned how to drag a knee, is about as cool as thinking that you need a box of condoms after you just lost virginity...

Pics or it didn't happen...



Now back to your regular Gymkhana programming.

Dirtkhana Up at my camp and hard to find a lot to play. There it's a gravel out in the back which is pretty packed down so I set up two courses and played in the dirt. Fun and a lot if sliding and drops. If I do it later pics this time.

More proof, not that it is kneeded, of the skills motogymkhana brings Vulfy. Nice.

My G/F was heading off tarmac straight towards a ditch recently. She had just done her first powerslide & was grinning at me rather than looking ahead. Uh oh, I thought, gonna be feet down turn struggling to hold the bike or a messy stop with the same consequence. Um, no. To my amazement she spun her head around like something from the Exorcist, dropped the bike on it's ear & did a perfect full lock u-turn with zero hesitation or drama.
Struck me as something your average joe rider would not be able to do. To be honest, something I probably could not do.

"Back in the day" before knee sliders were invented we had to use duct tape to stop the leather from wearing right through, here is a shot of me at Brands Hatch taken longer ago than I care to remember, what a great bike that was



Now back to your regular Gymkhana programming.

Hope this rain goes away I cant wait to get back to another training session
