    Default Sunday August 21st, body position / knee drag clinic, 9am meet time

    The poll favored Sunday the 21st, so... PLEASE HIT THE ATTEND BUTTON IF YOU ARE COMING so I can get a head count!!

    Original thread: http://www.bandofriders.net/forums/s...ad.php?t=53724

    Blockbuster on Rt 6 in Bristol for 9am... kickstands up at 9:15... there are a number of gas stations right near the Blockbuster so fill up first so we can head out at 9:15.

    here's a map for meet location and route that will be taken:

    WE WILL ROLL RIGHT UP RT8 FROM RT 6 SO WE GET TO THE BOAT LAUNCH EARLIER.... SHOULD BE THERE BETWEEN 10-10:15

    http://maps.google.com/maps?saddr=12...2,3,4&t=h&z=11

    Pace will be medium-ish.... I am not here to babysit.. You know your riding abilities. It may be a fairly large group so I will drill all of you that I don't know on your riding abilities, skills etc. and put you in a suitable position in the group. I will wait at major intersections for everyone and all I ask is ride your own ride...

    You don't have to have full leathers for this, but I do recommend it... if your goal is to get more comfortable leaning off your bike, that's fine...

    If your goal is to put your knee into the ground, that is fine as well....

    Remember, you may drop your bike if this stuff is new to you...

    I want everyone to have fun and learn something from this.. I just want people to be safe and ride within your personal limits to and from the boat launch..

    I may have shorty cones that would be perfect for this. Let me know if we could use them and I will look this week and bring them down.

    Looking forward to this! Always down to learn more....

    If you could bring them that'd be great. Better to have more than enough that not enough..

    Thanks

    Yeah, I've ridden both roads a hundred times. Thanks for the heads up though.

    Come for the.ride and just hang out. Learn by observation.

    Also, Andy, I don't have any cones. MSF provides them for us haha. I will check at sports authority or something.
