Bmoney, he's talking about their November '03 class, which was full.

I'm leaning towards taking their school in Delaware in the spring. Can stay at Mom's! All depends on schedules.

So are you going to sign up for the advanced supermoto one or just the regular supercamp racer one ?

Racer, I enjoy getting run over by 14 year olds.

What did you wear for Gear ?
I've got a set of leathers but I'm not sure I want to wear them for this.

Thanks

You will melt in leathers and you don't need them. It's all dirt gear. Danny will loan you stuff if you want. No charge. With the new sponsers it's not too mungy anymore. I would get my own a cheap dirt lid on sale somewhere.

So is dirt gear "non-gender-specific", or does this mean I have to go out and buy a whole bunch of crap?

I'm sure you could too......as long as you go out with a set of specific skills or exercises to work on as the objective of your ride. I find that unless I force myself to work on a certain skill, technique or whatever, I just end up going out to ride and have fun and end up trying to take the trail, course, whatever, as fast as I can.

Hmmmmmmm

Its been my experience that you save a lot of time (and maybe parts )getting someone who knows what they are doing to steer you in the right direction then a bunch of your time bumbling around doing it wrong on your own before you figure it out.

On the other hand to some people it comes pretty naturally so maybe its not needed.. This is definately not the case for me.

Kim,

Mooch his stuff. It's really just jerseys gloves and pads. While it's not 1 size fits all it's pretty baggy. Alot of street riders wear an old lid or use his if they want a dirt lid. Dirt lids are a lot cooler. You will work/sweat your but off so it helps. You won't believe how much water you will be drinking. I've used his, but have a thing about wearing a lid that 20 guys before you have soaked out even if it's been cleaned and sprayed. I got a cheapo close out dirt lid on ebay for $40ish. Oh, they recommend old street boots. All the better for sliding. Therefore, you don't need to worry about fitting in one of his male sized boots. Just grab an old set you don't mind trashing.

You are not going to get what they do just off-roading. Having a dirt background is a big plus, but this is a very specific skill set they are building. There are lots of drills and the boys are in your face non-stop. It's not like the race track. They are inches away on a regular basis, talking, goading, grabbing, poking, showing, messing around etc. For what you get, it's pretty cheap.

Hi,

I just got around to signing up so we will get to bum around together. I know it's early, but do you want to share a ride down there?

Bruce

Only 3 more spots left in the Racer class and 6 months to go. Wow, Danny is getting popular. Sign up now!
