Suspension Clinic - Garage Party

Hey People This month's Garage Party is going to be a suspension clinic by Phil Douglas, Owner of AfterShocks.




Understanding Your Suspension:
Phil Douglas, Owner of AfterShocks, Speaks at A&S BMW Motorcycles January 17, 6:30-8 p.m.
There are so many questions we have as riders about our suspension set-ups. I ride aggressive / reserved / on the track / on the street / on both street and dirt, so how should I set-up my bike? Iíve heard about pre-load, damping, compression and rebound - what do they mean? Whatís best for my weight, height and ability? Phil will answer all of these questions as our January GaragenPartei Guest Speaker. You wonít want to miss this!

January GaragenPartei Suspension Clinic:
-> Comprehensive Discussion on Suspension Mysteries with Phil Douglas, Owner of AfterShocks

-> Raffle Prizes

-> Free Food and Drinks

Join us for this unique opportunity to understand the Ďeasiestí tweaks you can possibly do to your bike that make such a dramatic difference in your ride!

I would take the 580 to the 205, then I-5 to Sacto. If you leave at 4 you should be here by 6:30ish...
