It's this Saturday startiing at 1PM, or 11:30-12:00 if you want lunch, they'll be grilling burgers and dogs I imagine.

There's a sizable grassy/dirt area on the side and I asked Don if we could get a couple logs and mounds of dirt for some practice. Next thing I know he's got a guy with a backhoe and Bobcat coming out this week for some serious excavations and maybe a waterhole (mudpit?)

It's open to anyone to come out but he is giving priority to his sales and service customers, understandable. Again, everyone welcome for lunch, the chalk talk, prize drawings, GS model reviews, etc. but depending on turnout may be limited as far as on-course instruction, we're thinking 35-ish but that could probably go up. If you're interested in getting on the list, email an RSVP to sales@BMWMCJAX.com

Rich, Dave (Day 13), Mike (Mr. Guns), Dave R (Slimy), and myself will be doing most of it but if you're interested in helping out, and we may need it, look me up at the meeting Wed. night.

We'll be at the dealership most of the afternoon so come on out, should be a lot of fun!
I might be there with Matt's GS if'n you're interested in a little more help. See ya Wed. night.

Sounds good, we may need someone for hands on "demonstration".

Perfect, you'll be on someone else's bike.

Such as proper get off technique? I may need a loaner KLR for that one. And a ditch.
