    YES agree most think it is racing etc on track days, shame as it is so far from the truth, oh well.

    Bugger on no up takes, AKL market has proven to be hard to crack with DM, we have tried and will keep trying, just keep spreading the word it will happen.

    Are you going to try and get to the suspension school at Puke or some of the events?

    I really want to but not sure I can afford it. I very much enjoyed a evening seminar when he came last time. But he says the bike has to have adjustable comp damping front and rear. I only have that on the rear.

    I would prefer ART days to be advertised as Advanced Rider Training days. And more on the training said etc. I would think there would be more uptake.

    I agree on that, Vic club here ae pushing that side of things and are getting more and more riders, so maybe that is the way to go.

    Yes that is the preferred full adjustments on bikes for suspension, he does have some seminars in AKL I think, get them out.

    It would be sad to see the ART days go due to low uptake. They are very well run with very good instructors.

    I think a little vid like this would help as well to give people some in site to how it works. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pFwtHe_C_yY

    +1 on that. its still to early for me. but i reckon its the way forward too.
    sure there should be advanced track racing days too, this would be an advanced course for those doing at least some form of advanced rider training prior.

    some of us want to ride with more confidence (skill) and knowledge. what better place than on a track or similar where repeditive corners and obstacles are reduced

    Looking forward to the next ride in the morning
    Riding for as long as I can

    Did not know that DM was coming back to NZ. What are his Auckland dates? If no AKL dates then where is going to be.

    Thats cos you live on the wrong side of Auckland. Westie's don't get 1st choice at the club. Thats why I have faked my address and pretend I live on the shore.



    Here is the link to book direct with Dave. Dave@feelthetrack.com

    $50 for the talk and $50 to set your bike up

    See you there.

    Do you have to be an AMCC member to come to this? I would be keen to come along.

    I might be a member anyway as I have been to the last ART.

    Cheers, I just e-mailed him. Would like him to give the Superchickens suspension a quick look.
