Everyone seemed to have a good time today. We started out with some grilled burgers, hot dogs, soft drinks, all served up by the shop staff. Then we were regaled by Rich on some of the basic riding techniques that would be used today. Once everyone was thoroughly confused, we made our way out to the parking lot for some cone drills. I forgot to get the camera out for that part, but did get some shots after we moved to the dirt portion. Started with some basic log crossing drills. Then a nice muddy rut. Good concentration here. Nice body english. Oops! Then we had a little mound to work on body movement & throttle control. Of course, some were a bit more enthusiastic with the throttle than others. Excellent form. Once we were done, we adjourned to the shade where names were drawn for some generous prizes offered by BMW of Jax. And so with that, after a great afternoon of practice, it was time to clean up, load up, & head for home. A big thank you to Don & the staff at BMW Motorcycles of Jacksonville for their generosity, food, & facilities. And of course thanks to Bill, Rich, Dave, & Larry for putting this all together. Lastly, thanks to all that came out today. Hope you all had a good time.
