some asked about rider training again well!

Well this may be something new for all, for those of us that want some extra training for riding curves, like up here in the mountains-

I just spoke with Susan Galpin she is a racer and does seminars at rally's she teaches quick riding proper entrance to curves ect ect ect

She will give like a hour or so seminar to us, then let us practice it some and take a few out at a time that think they need more help watch give her suggestions

Interest anyone?

Got to go

Susan gave a couple of seminars on cornering at the recent BMWNEF Winter Rally at Camp Blanding which was very well received. Unfortunately I missed her presentation but after hearing all the accolades I'm sorry I didn't attend.

John, You are correct. But there aren't enough curvy roads close to Chateu Elan to pull this off. Best thought would be to see if we could pull this off closer to the mountains, using the parking lot a Toosey's as a place to start. Which means you'd probably give up a good day of riding depending on how big this gets. As for now I think Tom was directing this to the SouthEast guys for earlier in the year. Tom can (and will) correct me if I'm wrong.

On His Ride,
Steve

CCR is way too big for this. OTOH, Spring Training II would be ideal!

Does Susan still ride her K75 Beemer? How many multi-hundreds-of-thousands-of-miles does the bike have now?

I'm "IN"...but Tom knows this already. I'll be down at STC II, and hopefully, atop my Ninja. I've read and heard a LOT of good things about this old gal. I look forward to absorbing as much info from her as I can.

This sounds like BIG FUN too!!! Unless Steve slows all of us down.
