    Sorry to hear about that, Jon.
    I'm not that far away if you need something done around the homestead.
    Let me know.

    The best riding clinic in the industry, hands down. And getting your hands on a new Orange Twin for $200 with the intent to get it dirty isn't exactly something that comes around very often. This is quite possibly the best test ride opportunity ever. If you have a friend that is thinking about taking the plunge into the dark, lonely, sarcastic recesses of ADV-dom, please send them to this riding clinic.

    Wow, I'm a little slow to see this but this sounds like something not to be missed if you ride a KTM twin. This class is just for you. No small bikes, no medium bikes and no GSs, just KTM twins. Better yet, if you don't have one, you can rent a brand new 2012 for less than you can rent an old beater quad. Kind of short notice but anyone who has ever wanted to take a class to learn to ride your big KTM better, and is free this weekend and has the means, you have to do this! Nobody can teach this shit better than Jimmy and Heather.

    Jimmy, :clap for greatly improving my riding skill. I was always a timid rider on my GS. After your class, I feel so much more confident on the big pig in the dirt. I hit the fire roads last week and I felt like I was "one with the bike" I was just on the fire roads but felt totally comfortable on the pegs mid third geaer. Bumps, humps, ruts, I knew I could hang with it. Got in over my head and "flew the pig", I felt in control it didn't scare the crap out of me. I knew what to do. I only stopped after my flight because the panniers weren't real happy with my new riding style. :lol3

    I am looking forward to getting the big pig out again and riding more dirt.

    Again, thank you for opening up my potential on the bike.

    PS, I expect I'll still be the slowest/last on the rides, but I am much more comfortable now.
