That's a CU all girl ride...one that I'm hosting...so maybe we'll pass by the clinic but we'll be doing our own learning that day :)

It was okay. I'm afraid I didn't retain much information though because basically it was like 20 people standing around one motorcycle while the guy pointed and talked about stuff. I learn MUCH better when I get to actually do it but that is probably an unreasonable request since it's free. Plus he's showing you on bikes that he is currently working on and of course they're not going to let you touch other peoples' bikes.

Having said that though, the guy who taught my course was FANTASTIC at explaining things (it wasn't Doc Wong himself...). I was really impressed with his ability to speak on his expertise to such a wide varrying group of skill levels.

Overall, I'd say helpful to go to purely for exposure but you probably won't really LEARN much.

Ok. Thats good to know. I will go if I have time, but I will still look for a hands-on class. I hear there is one at the city college in Sacramento. Anyone know of a closer one?


Thanks Jess for posting.
