    Next Basic Suspension Workshop Part 1--Feb 18 Fri Night!


    You're invited the next Basic Suspension Part One Workshop!

    I'm hyper-excited, this workshop will demystify and really enhance
    your knowledge of suspension setup. It is geared for those of you who
    are neophytes in suspension to those of you who want to know more
    about how set up your bike properly!

    One month there was even a guy that flew from Colorado to attend the
    workshop and flew back the next morning!

    Thanks to the efforts of Gary Jaehne, a local expert rider, this Basic
    Suspension Clinic is possible. Yes, it's free too.

    Here's the scoop:

    This will be a 2 hour (non-riding) workshop held on:

    Friday night, Feb 18, 2011 from 7:15pm to 9:30pm
    At my office in Redwood City. Cost: $0.00

    To register, just e-mail me at: 

    About the topic, "Basic Suspension Setup": Gary has made up worksheets
    with pertinent data that will be very simple and understandable. He
    will even have basic terminology defined so that you will know the
    terms and how they apply to making your bike feel good, bad, bumpy,
    springy, etc. The workshop will give you a very good understanding of
    how a suspension works and what you need to do to your bike to improve
    it's handling characteristics.

    Workshop format: 

    1.  Basic terms with demonstrations on a sport bike. Gary will go over
    each term one by one and demonstrate them so that you will see them in

    2.  Adjustments and how they effect the handling of your motorcycle
    and how you can do them on your bike.

    3.  Poor handling characteristics due to "mis-adjustments" and how
    they can be remedied.

    The workshop will be kept simple enough to ensure that when you leave,
    you'll have a very good understanding of how a suspension works and an
    idea of how to adjust your own bike. You'll have handouts and
    worksheets to make notes on too!

    Due to the content of the materials presented, parental guidance is
    suggested as your enhanced understanding of how your suspension works
    and its subsequent demystification may bring about wide grins!

    We do have to limit the number of riders to 40, due to the fact that
    we want everyone to see how the adjustments are made on the

    Want to use your bike as the demo bike for the evening? E-mail me with
