    It is pretty darn impossible to get 1 day and 1 location that works for everyone. It is not a small endeavor to put this together and we have to work with other scheduling difficulties as well. Regardless this already looks like it will be well attended and just in time for folks to refresh for riding out at the Touratech Rally.

    More good news!

    Terry at https://www.norwestsuspension.com will be coming out June 10th to help with people needing to set up suspension.

    Terry charges $20 to set preload as well as rebound and compression if equipped. Terry set up my new Africa Twin and I could instantly feel the difference from the settings I had.

    This is going to be a great event!

    I think it is awesome that there are some events over in Spokane for Adventure Bike riders.
    Thank you for organizing this. A little far for me, but I am moving that way soon, so glad to see there are some decent events being organized.

    I took a 1/2 day training with Shawn Thomas at the Washington State BMW Rally in Republic last summer. Shawn is a great trainer, humorous and encouraging. He didn't even make fun of me for riding a KLR650!

    I registered for this session at Westside due to the great price, the skills that will be presented, and the opportunity to meet local ADVers who don't think they already know everything about riding. It should be a fun and educational day.

    It looks like we have somewhere between 10-15 riders signed up. There is still a lot of room left for this great event.

    Wow this was one great weekend for training with PSSOR. I am always amazed at how much improvement people can make in a matter of days. It is so much more fun riding with the confidence gained with this kind for training.

    Pictures to follow.

    We are starting to think about Touratech Rally 2017. If anyone is interested in doing a ride out from the Spokane area lets talk and get organized.
    Here are some pictures from the 2016 Rally. Riding out in the Leavenworth area is incredible and Touratech does and awesome job of organizing this event.
