Workshop # 3

  Douthat State Park   The weather gods gave us a pass this weekend. We didn’t get rained on once and yet storms were on the move all day Saturday. While having lunch at the Griffin Tavern in Flint Hill Virginia, the cook kindly came to our table to warn us...

Riding Tip # 8 – How It Feels

How It Feels How well we ride depends a lot on how loosened up we feel. A graceful line is scripted by a relaxed motorcyclist at the controls.  I’m riding my best when I feel  a complete presence of mind.  It is “being in the moment” and it is when...
