    We're going to pull a Ferris Bueller on him and just "borrow" it for the weekend.

    I hope that odometer trick works this time where we just roll the wheel backwards.

    this will be awesome.

    I recognize about 4 people from that picture, too.

    This wet weather will make getting there tonight interesting.

    I am thinking that I am going to have to charge you guys a lot more money if I have to drive you guys in the rain. :lol3 I see there are steak dinners and good adult fluids in my future. :wink:

    That didn't sound too good, did it? :eek1

    How about adult beverages? :freaky Or perhaps you did mean fluids and were referring to a certain pink trailer?

    What happens in Vegas...

    I got some great tri-tip I bbq'd last night I can bring for the ride up. It's among the best I've ever made this time.

    So it's Fudge-pop (himself), Lonestar2112, FYYFF, JonF, GalacticGS. Nice :clap

    it's a unique quantum levitation technology developed by DARPA that creates an anti-water force field that's driven by a cold fusion reactor. It's science.

    All I know is that it keeps the bike dry and the espresso hot.

    Something like this:

    guys, hope this helps.

    when i took my first class, i was nervous, afraid to screw up and embarass myself. i froze up and jimmy noticed it right away....:lol3


    just relax and pay attention to every little details. after i looseened up, riding was much better. don't be embarassed or do something you're not.

    i guarantee everyone, next time i see you on the trail, you're a better and more confident rider. the lesson you'll learn is a lifetime tool. you can also bullshit your way in the presence of the more nOObish riders.....:rofl

    in return, i expect you to do this. jimmy brings a cooler full of red bull, sneak a dozen for me......will ya?....:hide

    It's been raining here in Lost Wages for a few hours now. Have fun out there and just remember "If Joel can do this, anyone can."

    What an experience!

    Just got back from Jimmy Lewis off road riding school in Pahrump, NV and now I feel 10 feet tall! No longer can I say "but is it big bike friendly?"

    This school was the best investment I could have made. I wish I'd done it sooner. If you haven't done this yet, please do immediately; it will help your confidence immensely.

    Lonestar2112 drove FYYFF and I up there with the bikes in the back of his huge truck

    Here's Jimmy himself giving us a little intro to the course on Sat morning

    [​IMG]

    You actually become a better rider the moment you come into Jimmy's presence. He's that good. Here's FYYFF basking in the glow of Jimmy's tutorial magnificence!

    [​IMG]

    We did most of our lessons on the dry lake bed there, which was amazing. Really good weather too.

    [​IMG]

    That's right, Jimmy also rides the 1200 GSA (sniff) Just. Like. Me.

    [​IMG]

    Showing us balanced positioning on the bike even at extreme angles. I actually got to put this lesson into practice later today in the desert.
