Doc Wong Dual Sport Adventure Riding Clinic (Sunday Dirt Session)

Doc Wong Dual Sport Adventure Riding Clinic - May 20/22!

 

Hi,

 

Due to some very popular requests, I've created this special clinic for adventurous dual-sport, dirt and street riders. Basically anyone who wants to improve their riding. From the consistent feedback we've been getting, the new format has been getting impressive results!

 

If you're a street rider and don't have a dual-sport or dirt bike, come to Friday night's lecture and demonstrations as I guarantee that it will be an educational experience for you.  Though I'd have to say that I've had a rider show up Sunday with a full dress Harley Davidson motorcycle that did the dirt clinic. He did well too!

 

Not only will you learn Doc Wong's 12 Basic Fundamentals of Dirt Riding, but you'll get the most important data point of riding any motorcycle competently.   I'll cover vital topics and drills dealing with coordinated balance, controlled sliding of the rear AND front wheels, controlled wheelies, hillclimbs and much more.

 

So how do I get newer Adventure Dirt/Dual-Sport riders to, safely, do things like lock up the front wheel, do wheelies etc all in one morning of drills????  Attend Friday night's lecture and demonstration and find out.

 

If you're a more experienced dirt rider I'd appreciate any help you'd like to give in leading a group, etc.

 

This clinic is held on two separate days. Please note: Friday night's talk is a prerequisite to Sunday's drilling and ride. 

 

Cost: $20.00 donation to the Clear Creek Legal Defense Fund / Blue Ribbon Coalition.  Sound too good to be true?  Yes, but it's true and has been for the last 15 years of the Doc Wong Riding Clinics with now over 40,000 riders having attended my various events! The $20 donation is appreciated and if you want to donate more, that would be wonderful, but you won't be asked to.  So no upsell.

 

Part A: Friday evening, 7:15 PM will be a 1 1/2 hour talk at my chiropractic office: 

 

Wong Chiropractic Center

1391 Woodside Road, Suite 200

Redwood City, CA 94061

 

Part B: Each ride has been full of wonderful surprises, a true adventure! This clinic promises more of the same. The details of the Sunday adventure ride will be announced at the Friday evening talk at Wong Chiropractic.

 

 

TO REGISTER:  Sign up here on Meetup  (limited to the first 

40 riders, so if you register and can't make it, please let me know ASAP as there will be a waiting list)  

 

Anyone is welcome to come to the evening "Dirt Riding Workshop-Talks and Demonstrations" part of the clinic and is not limited in numbers, however the practical "Dirt Ride Drills and Dirt Ride" part of the clinic is limited to 40 riders.

WHAT TO BRING TO THE DIRT RIDE 

 

A. Snacks, lunch and water. 

 

B. Gear: Minimally have a good helmet, gloves, heavy boots, blue jeans and a long sleeved shirt. Full dirt riding gear is ideal: Dirt helmet, goggles, chest protector, elbow guards, gloves, knee pads and dirt boots. Regular dual sport riding and touring gear is ok too, but be aware it may get hot. 

 

C. Mechanical: bike in good order, knobbies will work best, however dual-sport tires will work also. Street bike tires will provide a unique experience! ;-) 

 

D. There will be nowhere to drop off luggage, so plan on doing the entire ride with what you have. This is afterall an "Adventure" ride, so if you want, bring luggage to simulate a ride.

 

E. Type of bike.  It has to be a legal dual sport bike that can go at least 150 miles.  Terrain will be a combination of street and dirt.   You can being a smaller dual sport bike, but make sure to being extra gas or make friends with a fellow with a big gas tank.  There are always several 1200 GS Adventurers there with over 9 gallons of gas.

    Great trip, learned a lot. The rains this year made the road way more difficult than anybody expected, but the unexpected challenges made it really fun and interesting.
