Central Alabama Gymkhana!!! (March 15th)

Come on out, guys!

The facility is awesome, and we will have at least two big courses set up, and usually two or three smaller ones as well.

Come carve cones all day. Food is provided.

Not a competition. This is for skill building.

Here is a short vid of one of the larger courses from last time.

(not the best sound quality with my home-made "gopro" sorry)


March 15th!! All types of bikes welcome!

-Tim

Tempting. Where exactly? If it's in the vid, I haven't been able to watch it yet.
Maybe I'll have the bikes back together by then

Super,

It is being held at Montevallo.

It is a great facility, with two gigantic skidpads, made specifically for motor training.

Here's a link...

@Wolf --> if only you could see....I had my DSLR tied to my chest with paracord

Moto- Gymkhana is tons o fun. We have one that runs events once a month here in the LA area.

Challenging for experienced riders, yet easy for new riders too.

Makes you a much better rider, much more comfortable on your bike.

I am putting this on my calendar. Have never tried anything like that before.

I'm trying to find the flyer for the event.

Here is a link to the AMGRASS website.

Last event in September, I think we had over 200 bikes.

Cruisers, sport bikes, sumos, dual sport, everything...

Wish I could join you guys down there and represent NYC motogymkhana. It's 1003 miles from my home and mid March is probably not a good time to attempt an iron butt.

max,

It's 9-5. Anytime you could make it is fine, though. Its not a structured schedule. Just show up and ride!

I will probably be there around 10:30 myself. (Have to ride a 5K run that morning.)

Cant miss me. My bike will have all the flashy blue-lights.

Heres the flyer...
