Doc Wong Adventure Dual Sport Clinic - April 11/13!
Clear Creek has new rules, you just have to apply for a permit to be able to
access the roads there. Here are the simple steps:
1. Go to: http://tinyurl.com/nyupn6g
2. Fill it out and sign. Be sure to put down the DATE OF ENTRY in the upper right side.
3. E-mail or fax back to BLM (Bureau of Land Management). See the end of the application for those numbers.
4. They will then email you back the permit. There is no cost for the permit.
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 dirt skills. From the consistent feedback we've been getting, the new format has been getting impressive results with riders gaining greatly improved dirt skills and confidence!
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 Skills, 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 Doc Wong Riding Clinics for clinic costs. Sound too good to be true? Yes, but it's true andhas been for the last 18 years of the Doc Wong Riding Clinics with nowover 40,000 riders having attended my various events! The $20 donationis appreciated and if you want to donate more, that would bewonderful, but you won't be asked to.

----------------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 170 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.________________________________________________
