Advanced Rider Course

So, even experienced riders need to take some time on occasion to focus on their skills, and an advanced rider course is often a great way to do just that. Plus I know that dirt bikes are often an easy way to push things a bit harder than you might on a street bike, especially a 700+ lb SuperSport Tourer. And skills learned on these light, maneuverable dirt bikes do transfer to normal street rides.

So, what do y'all think of this as an Advanced Rider Course?

All lower 48 states plus Alaska on the K13GT in two weeks . . .

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

I couldn't get through that course with a chain saw and a rock crusher!

Neither could most of the entrants . . .

Apparently, that's just the prologue for the real event . . .
