Here's a listing of their local training locations and contact info:

My wife and I took the one at Newgate Mall in Ogden a few years ago, and were happy with the level of instruction and professionalism from the course.

They really didn't like how I never touched the front break and always skidded the back tire, but that's their fault for sticking a dirtbike rider on a DR200. I was the only student with any riding experience in class, and the only one that couldn't perform their emergency stop procedures perfectly. Oh well, at least I passed.

That's cool how you stop mid-way through a ride to re-oil your air filter element. We could all stand to learn a little something from your attention to preventative maintenance!

I will say that I am for no other reason than it gives me yet another opportunity to $hit backwards around here.

Seriously, though; if it works with my days off I could use a good long ride. Doing a week in Moab mid-October for vaca this year.

In case anyone is wondering why I have not ridden lately:

Timing chain broke and the DL needs a new engine.

AOK and awesome. Roostre and Kev, definitely and I'll keep you posted... Roostre I'll reach out to get your email address...

I'm also hoping to do a 2 or 3 day before them a little more tour-ADV like, perhaps something starting north around the lake and down to Pony Express or something like that. Long easy flat miles but hopefully some decent sweepy single track. Keep you guys posted on that as well...

KTM should be back running in just a day or two as soon as the new cables show up. Excited to see how this new Gen III 41mm works in real life on the old '02...

I would like to be kept in the loop, I can't promice anything with Market on Sat's through mid-late Oct. But one never knows.
Brian, right on! Trip would be another of these dirt bike ADV trips which are lightweight moto. The northern Utah one might hang on something 650 to 950 at the largest, would not work for a strom or a BMW I imagine.. Not sure if that helps! Hope life/business etc is all good... I saw your long ass hair on the facebook. Nice...

Not that I know of. But then again, the slow oil leak on the left side engine cover isn't either. Neither is the coolant leaking...or the need for a different rear spacer so the chain won't be slightly bent making gear shifts smoother and the sprockets wear evenly...

A Japanese bike with European (or make that South American) problems......?

Couldn't be.......or maybe you're an engineer.....and susceptible to inadequacies..........

I will be back in Utardia Sep 9th-ish. Other than riding with Ryman, I have nothing planned and should be around for about 10 days.
