    Buddy of mine picked up a KTM 690 and promptly (wisely) signed up for a Jimmy Lewis school to learn how to properly fly the thing. I went along for a day with a couple cameras.

    If only all classrooms were this enjoyable...

    One of the quirkier spots along the route used for the "ride day" portion of the class.

    Great photos !

    I took one of Jimmy's classes and was thrilled - they ought to be mandatory for anyone interested in big ADV bikes who doesn't have dirt bike experience, although there is definitely a lot to learn for riders of all levels.

    Highly recommended ...
