For all interested SUMO riders - Intro to Dirt Class

Equalz, Joe, Ryan and myself had a class today at waterman with Club57mx - Brad jereminski, It was nice cause it was only us 4 riders. He is scheduling a class at waterman for Supermoto riders only, For any of you guys who want more dirt experience this class will help you in the brown stuff. Its a " Intro to dirt" class. Tenteive date is Saturday Jan 3rd at 7am at waterman indoor raceway. Just post up if you are interested or PM me.

DO YOU WANT TO BE A BETTER DIRT OR MX RIDER OR LEARN TO RIDE DIRT?

I probably can't make it, I get back from vacation the day before and have to work on Sat. Is he planning on having people ride on their Sumo tires?

I'll let you know if things change for me.

Same question here - is it going to be a class on dirt wheels or slicks?

kickass!

If not, its all gravy too. I kinda like being a 'tard and riding a 60HP beast of a bike with no traction.

Whats the cost?

you mean you're getting a two stroke? Think I could take this class or should I just wait for a regular class, non sumo based since I don't have any sumo experience.

It's actually $65 for the membership now. But $80 does cover the rest(lesson & track rental for the 3 hours).

How deep is the whoop section at Waterman? I can already tell it's gonna kick my ass. I'm not too confident that my current pogo suspension is very whoop-friendly.
Not to mention I've never ridden whoops before
