Keep an eye out for my $10.00 lessons this year, ITS BACK

hey everyone, and also NEW MEMBERS.

ive put on handful of Kens free riding lessons in the last few years, but the last 1-2 years have been very limited in my time. well this year should be better and more free'd up time for me to help others refresh verterans, people just starting off, coming out of winter blues, just about anyone that is willing to listen to me for a bit and take some suggestions from me and practice them. i guarantee you, you will learn something, be a better rider, be a safer rider.

i cover everything from the psychological affects on the brain from being a rider, how to over come fear with keeping respect, gear, geometry and how and why a motorcycle works the way it does, what you need to do as the rider, dealing with emergency situations, and tons tons more!

so i invite you to come out as many times as i put these things on. i have help MANY people from CLSB and i wish to help out MANY MORE.


i am by no means Rossi or Nicky, i am
pretty advanced in my skills, and wish to pass what i can on to you, to be a better,safer rider.


*****EDIT****

****************in order to keep this cool old thread thats been up for years around, the title of the thread is now edited along with the 1st post.for years i held the class for free. for the last 2 years? i have been asking for 10.00 a head for a little something to go towards my fishing gear*******

Very useful lessons you give, I went to one my frist year and it helped. I'll make sure my brother does this with you as well as the msf.

All you have to do is follow three simple rules. One, never under estimate your opponent (mentality). Expect the unexpected (could work out in your favor). Two, take it outside(or to a table). Never start anything inside the Bar unless it's absolutely necessary. And three, be nice.

you are still by far the only person i have taught and still to this date other then me can do a TIGHT u-turn from all ive seen. so for you, your next lesson will be turning a bike around with a street bike like it was a dirt bike.
