Bohemia sounds good to me.

Ned can carbo load on Buttermilk, Apple-Molasses, or Banana Walnut pancakes. Or French Toast, or Cinnamon Toast. Or Belgian Waffles. Or Belgian Waffles with Chocolate and Strawberries.

I think I may go for the Sausage Gravy and Biches...

RIDE TO TRAIN: Delaware Experienced/Advanced Motorcycle Training Courses

DDB's:

Is anybody interested in a Ride to Train this Summer? I'm talking aobut a one day experienced/advanced motorcycle training course at the Dover DMV? Details available here:

https://citizen.dmv.de.gov/services/...training.shtml

I've completed both the Experienced and Advanced Sport Bike classes and found them both to be extremely valuable.

The Sport Bike class (Sunday June 16) is definitely not just for sport bike riders. There were two guys riding GS Adventure bikes tearing up the range, doing stoppies with their ABS turned off, it was a blast!

The Experienced Rider Class is Sunday July 7. I took this class when I first got back iinto riding a few years ago. It sure was an eye opener for me!

I plan to sign up for one or the other. Anybody else interested? $35 for DE resident DDB's, $100 for out of state DDB's.

They've asked me to give a short lecture about foot and knee injuries.....

Yeah Tom, I took that ERC about 7-8 years ago. It was kinda fun. No real stoppies but a lot of rear tires skidding across the pavement.

The 15% it's supposed to save you on the liability part of your insurance would probably cover the cost of the course.

On the foot and knee injury lecture; will you be discussing the hazards of drinking before moving furniture in your bare feet and kicking leaves away from a SMIB campfire?

No. I guess, technically, it would be "Ride to a train."

Well if you're game, we will take the KLRs to the sportbike class and show the kids on their sportbikes how to ride!

Sunday July 7

I am now signed up for the Advanced Rider Course - Sport Bike Techniques

I had the dates wrong in previous posts - this class is at the Dover DMV on Sunday, June 16, 7AM - 4:30 PM.

You can register and pay online at this link:
https://citizen.dmv.de.gov/public.ej...&course=AK0413

"The Advanced Rider Course Sportbike Techniques is a course designed for experienced motorcycle riders. For the purpose of this course, an experienced rider is one who has basic skills and is a current rider with a motorcycle endorsement. Special emphasis is given to self-assessment, risk management, rider behavior, riding strategies and overall skill development, particularly in braking, cornering and swerving.

This is an 8-hour course consisting of 3 hours in the classroom, 4 hours riding, lunch, and breaks (bag lunch and snacks suggested). Students must have a motorcycle endorsement and provide their own motorcycle. Students are required to provide documentation to show the motorcycle is properly insured and legally registered in their name. Required documentation will be checked prior to the start of class, students not providing all required documentation will not be allowed to attend the course. The motorcycle will also be required to pass an instructor's pre-ride check."
