    Up and at em early....by west coast standards.
    Wind was whipping last night and the tent covered bunkhouse made a good bit of noise...glad I brought my foamies.

    That's our Instructors....

    Busy morning.. working on the basics user a bit more challenging circumstances...

    So far..."tuck and roll" has worked well on a couple of occasions..

    Taking a break for lunch and back at it..

    I can't wait to hear the reasoning behind the street tires.

    On the hook buddy; I shouldn't have been surprised based on the sales pitch at Bob's but you on an F800 seems like your doing something wrong. Can't wait to get your opinion on this controversial machine. The most important question... Does your gear match the bike? Safety second :D

    Lucky you. My trip to Rawhyde last month was the highlight of my winter. Lance is a great coach. Hope he's there to guide you too.

    Best of luck.

    Lance has been with the intro group. Our group has Del, Jason, Jeff and Mark.
    So far they haven't said anything that I haven't heard before, but the way they translate those things and coach...fanatastic...

    so, there are 40 chairs in that photo. Just curious what the student to instructor ratio is? How many folks in your class?

    For our group we have 19 students and 4 coaches. I think the intro class is about the same.
    The coaches were always providing great feedback. Little tweaks and suggestions where needed and best of all consistent. They never contradicted what another coach may have already told you..

    Dave if you learn how to ride in that hell called sand maybe you can teach me when you get home.

    Have fun.

    I'm guessing direct hit to skid plate punching the mounts through the motor....either way it looks expensive!
