    Here is 10 reasons for an early Christmas present for an adventure rider:

    1. You want to test ride a 2012 KTM 990 Adventure.
    2. You want to be a better rider on a big adventure bike.
    3. You have wanted to take the JLR class but can't since there is no easy way to rent a bike. (problem solved!)
    4. This is a pretty good way to get out of being dragged around a crowded shopping mall.
    5. You'll never get a better deal on the class/bike combination.
    6. You can have a Christmas present that you really want.
    7. You get your present before the Holiday.
    8. Ride the 2012 before it is on the dealer's showroom floor! (Plus you can brag about that.)
    9. Hang out with other KTM 950/990 riders.
    10. It will be super FUN!

    OK, about the riding double stuff, since I know everyone wants to know...

    Sometimes riders are scared of things and by showing them what really happens, as opposed to what they think happens, it breaks down barriers pretty fast and helps with confidence. Have another instructor try this!

    If you are even thinking about signing up for this class, you have to act quicky as we are getting a final count for the bikes.

    And on a big KTM going up a rocky trail with a 6+ foot dude on the back. But don't sign up just because you want to ride double with Jimmy. It's not that kind of a class.

    There wasn't enough room on my seat for Jimmy so I had to do all my own stunts.

    One of the best things about his classes are that they are very personal. These are small groups classes and he's always got Heather and usually others helping teach them. The student to instructor ratio is usually like 3:1. At one of the classes I took it was almost 2:1. On top of that, he adjusts his instruction for each rider within the group. If you need more help you get it. If you need more of a challenge, you get that as well. Plus you get to hang out with one of the best riders in the world and can talk to him about anything you want.

    Oh yeah, sign up for this class. It will probably be the best Christmas present you ever gave yourself.

    Just submitted my registration Jimmy, and you should see my buddy Kirt's come through today. I will contact you later to confirm. Really looking forward to a great experience. I have heard nothing but really good things about the style of class you put together.

    Damn, I hope Jimmy repeats this class in new year. I'll definitely be IN for that one.
    His class was the best investment I did for my KTM... :clap

    P.S: This pictures reminds me riding through South Pass in Death Valley with Wally on my back. :lol3
