Next Basic Suspension Workshop Part 1--August 21, 2009 Friday Night!


You're invited the next Basic Suspension Part One Workshop!

I'm hyper-excited, this workshop will demystify and really enhance your knowledge of suspension setup. It is geared for those of you who are neophytes in suspension to those of you who want to know more about how set up your bike properly!

The other month there was even a guy that flew from Colorado to attend the workshop and flew back the next morning!

Thanks to the efforts of Gary Jaehne,?a local expert rider, this Basic Suspension Clinic is possible.?Yes, it's free too.

Here's the scoop:

This will be a 2 hour (non-riding) workshop held on:

Friday night, August 21, 2009 from 7:15pm to 9:30pm
At my office in Redwood City.?Cost: $0.00

To register, just e-mail me at:? [address removed]

About the topic, "Basic Suspension Setup":?Gary has made up worksheets with pertinent data that will be very simple and understandable.?He will even have basic terminology defined so that you will know the terms and how they apply to making your bike feel good, bad, bumpy, springy, etc.?The workshop will give you a very good understanding of how a suspension works and what you need to do to your bike to improve it's handling characteristics.

Workshop format:?

1.? Basic terms with demonstrations on a sport bike.?Gary will go over each term one by one and demonstrate them so that you will see them in action.

2.? Adjustments and how they effect the handling of your motorcycle and how you can do them on your bike.

3.? Poor handling characteristics due to "mis-adjustments" and how they can be remedied.

The workshop will be kept simple enough to ensure that when you leave, you'll have a very good understanding of how a suspension works and an idea of how to adjust your own bike. You'll have handouts and worksheets to make notes on too!

Due to the content of the materials presented, parental guidance is suggested as your enhanced understanding of how your suspension works and its subsequent demystification may bring about wide grins!

We do have to limit the number of riders to 40, due to the fact that we want everyone to see how the adjustments are made on the motorcycle.?

Want to use your bike as the demo bike for the evening??E-mail me with the specifics of your bike:? Make, model, year and if it has adjustable front and back preload.

How to register:

Just e-mail me at:? [address removed]
