Announcing a new Meetup for Doc Wong Riding Clinics-SF Bay Area!

What: Riding Position and Ergonomics- The Key to Riding Pain-free and Confident

When: November 7,[masked]:15 PM

Where: Click the link below to find out!

Meetup Description: Riders with better riding position and ergonomics are more comfortable and more confident around corners and experience less neck and back pain.

In this workshop I'll cover the riding position that can make you feel SO much more confident around corners. I've been able to isolate some hidden causes of lack of confidence and crashes. Bring your bike because I'll be coaching you on it.

I'll help you make the necessary adjustments to your
riding positons and to your bike to optimize your personal efficiency and
comfort of riding your motorcycle in all conditions.

To achieve this, I'll be covering different riding styles or positions on
different bikes in differing conditons along with what needs to be changed to
ergonomically fit your bike to you. Also, I'll cover the most common neck,
back and wrist problems I see and what you can do to ride comfortably.

Riding Positions will include optimal positions for street, sport, toruing,
racing and dirt or dual sport riding. Which positions produce optimum
performance and which get riders into trouble along with which causes the most pain
and what to do about it. I'll demonstate on a couple of very different
bikes, a sport bike and an upright dual sport bike. That way I can demonstrate
the range of rding positions and the range of ergonomic adjustments you can do
to your bike. Find out how certain riding styles and poor bike setup can be
hazardous and how to solve them. The end result is you being more comfortable
on your bike with less fatigue and having more fun!

The ergonomics part of this workshop will cover how to adjust your bike to
your body and style of riding. The ergonomics of different bike types and body
types will be addressed and participants will have a working knowledge of
what do do with their bikes adjustments.Optimize your bike for your riding
style. Adjusting levers, foot controls, handlber bar placements

I'll also cover exercises and stretches for you neck, back and wrists.

After the talk and demonstrations, etc we'll go downstairs where you'll get
on your bike and I'll coach you on body position and make suggestions on the
ergonomics of your motorcycle.
