What are your goals in riding?

To polish skills and learn new techniques. I'm in several clubs and did a lot of sweep work on rally's. I was the fatal/recovery tow truck for cycles for the CHP and SMCO Sheriffs patrol up in the Cruz Mtns in the '90's. Came up on seriously injured bikers and fatal crashes. I've seen first hand what happens. Even something as inconsequential as pine needles or an errant squirrel can ruin your day...

What do you love about motorcycling?

The better question is; What don't I love! I never seem more alive that when I'm on a cycle. Feels like an extension of my body...a oneness. Some people get it...some don't.

How many Doc Wong Riding Clinics have you been to?

I was at his riding clinic at the San Mateo Motorcycle Show in 2010. It was more of a presentation but I learned a few things that I use till this day. I will start taking more clinics.

Introduction

What Jim K. is saying about this Meetup Group

It's a must for every rider starting out. Will promote his classes wherever I can.
