    Next Basic Suspension Workshop-Part 2 January 20th Friday night!

    Hi,

    You're invited to the next: Basic Suspension Workshop - Part 2 by
    local expert rider, Gary Jaehne!

    Here's the only catch: It's limited to 35 riders because we will be
    taking apart and examining the internals of a set of forks. Yes,
    you'll see the innards of the thing and see how it works to gain a
    deeper understanding of how suspension works. Those who attended the
    last Basic Suspension Workshop (Level 1) will get first priority.

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

    The Suspension Seminar Part 2, should be extraordinarily interesting
    tonight, Gary will go through the normal presentation portion of the
    program and will vary from the previous format by adding a lab where
    he'll be setting up a folding card table to perform a complete "piece
    by piece" dissection process on a full front fork assembly, and a rear
    shock assembly, while the students observe. We'll be identifying the
    function of each individual item, as it's removed. Should be a very
    educational experience, and rare opportunity for the riders in
    attendance. I'm excited about implementing this new "twist" on the
    suspension training program!

    Ken Lipman, our "Silent Hero" has been attending these too!

    If there's any room left, and I expect there will be, you can attend IF
    you already have a basic working knowledge of suspension and are
    familiar with setting the sag adjustment on your bike.

    Topic: Basic Suspension Workshop - Part 2
    Place: My office, Physicians Plus Medical Group (formally
    Wong Chiropractic)
    Time: Friday night, Jan 20th from 7:15pm to 9:45pm
    Cost: the cost has doubled ;-) ( $0 * 2 = $0 )
    How to sign up: e-mail me at:

    Here's the scoop from Gary:

    "I'm very pleased with the materials that I've put together so far, as
    I believe they will be quite effective at directly addressing the
    questions and issues that most motorcyclists have regarding the 'black
    magic' of setting up their compression and rebound adjustments, as well
    as other related aspects of suspension tuning."

    You'll also get a working knowledge of how compression and rebound
    works on a bike by actually adjusting the suspension.

    "The format for The "PART 2" seminar looks like this:
    ******************************************************
    1. Spring "Preload": "Setting proper "SAG", a quick review"
    2. Compression & Rebound : "Solving the mystery"
    3. Dissembling a set of forks and examining it's internals
    4. Advanced suspension tuning: "Going beyond the factory":
    . Wheelbase
    . Fork tube height
    . Fork oil level/viscosity
    5. Troubleshooting common bike handling complaints (student
    contribution)
    6. Cartridge fork dissembly
    7. Final Question & Answer session
    ******************************************************
    This will be a 2 1/2 hour (non-riding) workshop held on Friday night
    7:15pm to 9:45pm at my office in Redwood City.
    Just e-mail me at:
