PSSOR Offroad 101&102

I wanted to do a quick write up of last weekend’s PSSOR Off-road 101 & 102 classes i had the pleasure of attending. I am a n00b when it comes to 2 wheels and dirt, i got a last minute availability for the class and cleared my schedule. I'm not going to go super in depth with this but i would recommend this class to anyone, novice or expert to brush up on the basics. I had an awesome time and even got to lay my pig of a GSA down in some pretty deep mud (sorry no picture).

Our instructor Greg was an absolute professional and had a teaching style that was very easy to follow. I will be looking forward to the summer ADV Camps that PSSOR holds in the future.

If you are in the area these classes are too inexpensive and informative to pass up! I was throwing around the idea of attending rawhyde and still might but it is nice having PSSOR in the back yard.

Picture so you know it happened.

How'd it go on the big Beemer?

Also, I meant to tell you in Conconully, if you're going to be around Cashmere look me up. PM me for my number, I'll show you some nice riding.

Day 1 the beemer was fine, learned a lot and i am 100% more confident now, did some log crossings that were pretty cool. Surprisingly enough there were a few other 1200 owners in class but they opted for the rental bike. Day 2 Greg suggested i take a rental for the single track we did, dumped that thing 3 or 4 times! Had a blast!

PM Inbound.

That's true, but I was so preoccupied I didn't have the time to be my charming self.

They gave me a walking cast and crutches, which I did need at the time. At the ER they gave me 2 pills of me some sort of vicodin knockoff and 800mg ibuprofen (basically 4 advil). I didn't really need the pills until one of the nurses decided her mission that evening was to whip the boot around and then cram it on my foot.
I started driving as of Monday, stopped wearing the boot as of yesterday, and I've only been on the Ibuprofen the whole time to take off some residual soreness that creeps up on occasion.

I'm not sure what oregon offers, but this is worth the trip. I'm still trying to obtain boots (I have big weird feet) before I try this again

Definitely worth it I hear , what's better is that the classes are usually held in McCleary which is about 23 miles from my home in Kamilche ...couldn't get in this year but hopefully I can get into the classes next year .

They do not currently have anything scheduled... but who knows? We are supposed to have a mild winter this year.

I would keep an eye on - http://pssoffroad.com/pssor-home

Or maybe Greg will chime in on the availability of winter courses.
