    A big thanks to Laurie and crew for a great meetup. It helped and showed that there's plenty of room for improvement.

    great event, frustrating as hell, but a great event. I'm glad most of our summer rides involve eating and not doing figure 8's 'cause I am a lot better at eating than I am at doing the figure 8. :) I learned a lot and will spend a lot more time practicing.

    Laurie goes the extra mile to make sure that everyone has a great time. Thank you, and to everyone else who helped make this event happen.

    The weather turned out to be a nice day ... even got a little to much sun (ouch)... I felt that we all learned a little ...found out what we are good at and what we need to work on.. and next time bring a scooter right! But the one thing that I think we all learned is that we are all here to help each! Thank you to everyone that came out to spend the day with friends!

    Thank you for helping setup Marty and Dan!

    Sure was a great event. I knew that I did not turn well to my right and this event showed it! Bring on warmer weather.

    This program was handled like a pro! Well done Laurie and Marty

    Thanks Laurie and Marty. Great event a perfect opertunity to practice skills I've taking for granted. I'm not sure I learned to ride like a pro, but you can bet I won't be staring down at the ditch the next time I try a u turn.

    Sorry I won't be able to make the war games, I have a prior commitment. Play nice.

    Thanks, Laurie. You did a terrific job setting this up. I'm glad I was there to add to the excitement (twice.)

  • Sir M.

    I think we all learned a little more about our limitations and what we need to work on . Looks like we all improved a little today. I want to thank you all for coming out and joining in . Thank you Laurie for setting this up and getting the video and info.

    Been a while since attending basic riding at state 8. I was a little nervous about attending and meeting first time. I must say all these confident post below are making me fill I'm in good company.

    Should come give it a try Dave.

    April 10, 2014

    • Dave C.

      Ill ride out to at least hang out and watch :-)

    Having second thoughts on this. Dont think my bikes made for manuvering, already scraped foot boards a number of times.

    April 10, 2014

    • Allen O.

      I can almost guarantee that I will scrape either the floorboards or the kick stand at some point. That's just the bike's way of telling you that you leaned a little too far. It's not serious. Some bikes have sacrificial pads under the floorboards for that reason (but not mine.)

      April 10, 2014

  • Allen O.

    I'm not afraid to embarrass myself. How about you?

    1 · March 31, 2014

    • Jim E.

      At least there will be several people around to help pick up bikes.

    When do we look for Easter eggs if it rains on Saturday?

    2 · March 31, 2014

    If anyone has cones .... make sure you bring them!

    March 30, 2014

    Sounds like an excellent opportunity to get ready for the riding season!!
