Meetup Description: Doc Wong/Cal BMW Dual Sport Clinic for Larger Bikes June 5/7!
Doc Wong and Kari Prager (Cal Moto in Mountain View) ?have teamed up to create this special clinic is 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. 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 June 5, 7:15 PM will be a 1 1/2 hour talk at:?
California BMW/Triumph in Palo Alto.
2490 Old Middlefield Way
Mountain View, CA 94043
Part B:?Sunday 9 AM to?3 PM will be the meeting at Hollister Hills (State?Vehicular Recreation Area-SVRA) where those drills covered on Friday night will be practiced until lunch. After lunch we will break up into groups based on skill level and ride some of the larger, easier dirt roads of Hollister Hills SVRA.
Kari Prager of Cal BMW/Triumph will?
be leading the group of larger dual-sport bikes!
More experienced ride leader volunteers are needed, so let me know if?
you'd be willing to lead a group in the afternoon.
TO REGISTER:? E-mail me ASAP at:??[address removed]? (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! ;-)?
Ride street, ride track, ride dirt, trials.....ride.....well!
