    Its only a few hours from me. They have motorcycle classes I was thinking about. But watching videos it kind of looks like a bunch of folks sitting around doing nothing...and not even drinking;)

    So you went? What was your experience? I have only watched videos and the reviewers said there was very little bike stuff. Did you take any riding classes?

    I’d be interested in this also. To me it seems like I’d be paying to go to the mall to see whats new in the stores. Since I don’t have any interest in the seminars. So sell me the value of paying the entry fee.

    I thoroughly enjoyed Ox East. If the bike classes are still put on by Rawhyde then you'll enjoy them. The year I went they did a few group rides as well. You can check out the RR I did if you want to read about my experience there.

    Skip to page 9 for my arrival at OX.

    I went and did some of the classes. I enjoyed it. Got to experience deep sand and other challenging thing I don’t see on a normal ride.
