    Doc Wong Adventure Dual Sport Clinic - Sept 23/25!



    Due to some very popular requests, I've created this special clinic *
    for adventurous dual-sport, dirt and street riders. Basically anyone *
    who wants to improve their dirt skills. From the consistent feedback we've *
    been getting, the new format has been getting impressive results with riders gaining greatly improved dirt skills and confidence!

    If you're a street rider and don't have a dual-sport or dirt bike, *
    come to Friday night's lecture and demonstrations as I guarantee that *
    it will be an educational experience for you. *Though I'd have to say *
    that I've had a rider show up Sunday with a full dress Harley Davidson *
    motorcycle that did the dirt clinic. He did well too!

    Not only will you learn Doc Wong's 12 Basic Fundamentals of Dirt *
    Riding Skills, but you'll get the most important data point of riding any *
    motorcycle competently. **I'll cover vital topics and drills dealing *
    with coordinated balance, controlled sliding of the rear AND front *
    wheels, controlled wheelies, hillclimbs and much more.

    So how do I get newer Adventure Dirt/Dual-Sport riders to, safely, do *
    things like lock up the front wheel, do wheelies etc all in one *
    morning of drills???? *Attend Friday night's lecture and demonstration *
    and find out.

    If you're a more experienced dirt rider I'd appreciate any help you'd *
    like to give in leading a group, etc.

    This clinic is held on two separate days.

    **Please note: Friday night's *
    talk is a prerequisite to Sunday's drilling and ride.

    Cost: $20.00 donation to the Clear Creek Legal Defense Fund / Blue *
    Ribbon Coalition. *Sound too good to be true? *Yes, but it's true and *
    has been for the last 18 years of the Doc Wong Riding Clinics with now *
    over 40,000 riders having attended my various events! The $20 donation *
    is appreciated and if you want to donate more, that would be *
    wonderful, but you won't be asked to.

    Part A: Friday evening, 7:15 PM will be a 2 hour talk at my *
    chiropractic office:

    Wong Chiropractic Center
    1391 Woodside Road, Suite 200
    Redwood City, CA 94061

    Part B: Each ride has been full of wonderful surprises, a true *
    adventure! This clinic promises more of the same. The details of the *
    Sunday adventure ride will be announced at the Friday evening talk at *
    Wong Chiropractic. *

    Don't know if you have the skills to do the ride? *Come Friday night to find out more.

    TO REGISTER: *E-mail me ASAP at: *Docwong@aol.com *(limited to the first
    40 riders, so if you register and can't make it, please let me know *
    ASAP as there will be a waiting list)

    Anyone is welcome to come to the evening "Dirt Riding Workshop-Talks *
    and Demonstrations" part of the clinic and is not limited in numbers, *
    however the practical "Dirt Ride Drills and Dirt Ride" part of the *
    clinic is limited to 40 riders.


    A. Snacks, lunch and water.

    B. Gear: Minimally have a good helmet, gloves, heavy boots, blue jeans *
    and a long sleeved shirt. Full dirt riding gear is ideal: Dirt helmet, *
    goggles, chest protector, elbow guards, gloves, knee pads and dirt *
    boots. Regular dual sport riding and touring gear is ok too, but be *
    aware it may get hot.

    C. Mechanical: bike in good order, knobbies will work best, however *
    dual-sport tires will work also. Street bike tires will provide a *
    unique experience! ;-)

    D. There will be nowhere to drop off luggage, so plan on doing the *
    entire ride with what you have. This is afterall an "Adventure" ride, *
    so if you want, bring luggage to simulate a ride.

    E. Type of bike. *It has to be a legal dual sport bike that can go at *
    least 170 miles. *Terrain will be a combination of street and dirt. ***
    You can being a smaller dual sport bike, but make sure to being extra *
    gas or make friends with a fellow with a big gas tank. *There are *
    always several 1200 GS Adventurers there with over 9 gallons of gas.

    Also, at the end of the talk I'll be asking you to*complete a "health questionnaire"*but you are not obliged to complete it.


    Ride street, ride track, ride dirt, trials.....ride.....well!

    Dear rider,

    I have good news and bad news regarding this weekend's Doc Wong Adventure Dirt Riding Clinic.

    The bad news is that for the first time in our 18 year history of Doc Wong riding clinics, I have to cancel this weekend. I unfortunately have to be out of town this weekend.

    The good news:

    Although we won't be having a clinic with lecture, drills, etc, the ride is still going to happen!

    OK, I have Aldon who will be leading Sunday's ride!

    Let me know how it goes.

    What: Clearcreek Adventure Dual Sport Ride (was the Doc Wong Adventure Dual Sport Clinic)
    When: Sunday September 25, 2011 9 AM to ? (sometime in the afternoon)
    Where: Meet 9 AM outside of Flap Jack's Restaurant in Tres Pinos
    Cost: $0.00

    So Sunday's ride is ON!!!! This will not be a clinic as there will be no instruction on riding techniques, but Aldon and some other riders have volunteered to help you in any way possible, leading the ride. While I think this ride is very doable to most riders, it may be inappropriate for those very new to dirt riding or motorcycling.

    Be sure to bring food and at least 3-4 quarts of water and food for lunch and a snack. You'll need enough gas to do at least 100 miles of street and 50 miles of dirt. If you have any doubts, show up Sunday before 9 AM in Tres Pinos and talk to Aldon and others.

    Have fun, I wish I could be there!
