    Iphorde and I are going to be putting on a Dual-Sport and Offroad Riding clinic December 4th/5th at Crooked Creek Cycle Park. VERY IMPORTANTLY; we are guests of CCCP and all park rules and regulations supersede anything I may tell you. All riders must wear a helmet, eyewear, and protective footwear to be involved with this clinic. All riders will attend of their own accord and you are responsible for your own bike and own safety. Please ride accordingly, this is not a race or competitive event, so use your head and we'll all have a good time.

    This is one is FREE. We're fine-tuning our curriculum and need some test <strike> subjects/monkeys/guinea pigs</strike> riders.

    After this one we'll be charging, but that's part of the process. I need to know what you're willing to pay for such information and our time. I'll be camping Saturday night and riding both days.

    What you'll need:
    • YOUR Bike, knobby tires highly recommended (we are not providing motorcycles, and do not rent out our personal machines, I MIGHT let you ride one of mine if you're really nice and I think you can handle it :thumb )
    • Helmet (MOTGATT Required)
    • Gate Fee
    • Camping gear (if you're staying, or would like tips on packing and gear selection)
    • Your "road" Toolkit (tips and tricks for packing "enough" but not "too much")
    • Water and food (not provided by the staff. What, you ride a KLR? Pony up, cheapskate. :lol3 )
    • Patience (we're kinda wingin' it on this one)
    • A Good attitude. If you can't take a joke or be the first to laugh if you screw up, don't bother coming. We ain't getting paid enough to put up with whiners.

    What's provided:
    • Priceless information amassed from thousands of miles of hardcore hero-style riding and millions of laps at the most challenging circuits the world has to offer. :gdog
    • Jokes, lots of em.
    • good times

    The following people are on the IN list, and have already been in contact with me: I'd like to limit this to about 20 people, but if you just want to come to the park and ride while we're there, and hang out around the campfire with us, please feel free.

    Well, Cody, I'm gonna have to wait and pay for this at a later date as I will be on a HOG overnight trip that weekend.

    Definitely just the kinda thing I'm needing to do, however, so thanks for putting this together. Look forward to learning from you.

    Plenty of hotel options in a short distance, and I've got an extra tent or two if need be.

    Date edited. :baldy

    Dinner and gas in town? Sure why the hell not.

    Where ya coming from? All attendees are currently from the RTB rally and I bet you could hook up with somebody to carpool with.

    If I'm not a poser for wearing the shirt when I couldn't make it to the rally, then sure. :ear

    I'd prefer to do Saturday so my tired arse can camp there and head home Sunday.

    Lookin' forward to it! :evil

    Bring'em on Teach! :thumb. I was planning on turning my panhead into a RTWDoug special but doubt it will be ready for the class in December. Right now a regular right hand turn drags the pipes. :rofl
