Doc Wong Adventure Dual Sport Clinic - Sept 23/25!



Hi,

Due to some very popular requests, I've created this special clinic
for adventurous dual-sport, dirt and street riders. Basically anyone
who wants to improve their dirt skills. From the consistent feedback
we've
been getting, the new format has been getting impressive results with
riders gaining greatly improved dirt skills and confidence!

If you're a street rider and don't have a dual-sport or dirt bike,
come to Friday night's lecture and demonstrations as I guarantee that
it will be an educational experience for you. Though I'd have to say
that I've had a rider show up Sunday with a full dress Harley Davidson
motorcycle that did the dirt clinic. He did well too!

Not only will you learn Doc Wong's 12 Basic Fundamentals of Dirt
Riding Skills, but you'll get the most important data point of riding
any
motorcycle competently. I'll cover vital topics and drills dealing
with coordinated balance, controlled sliding of the rear AND front
wheels, controlled wheelies, hillclimbs and much more.

So how do I get newer Adventure Dirt/Dual-Sport riders to, safely, do
things like lock up the front wheel, do wheelies etc all in one
morning of drills???? Attend Friday night's lecture and demonstration
and find out.

If you're a more experienced dirt rider I'd appreciate any help you'd
like to give in leading a group, etc.

This clinic is held on two separate days.

**Please note: Friday night's
talk is a prerequisite to Sunday's drilling and ride.

Cost: $20.00 donation to the Clear Creek Legal Defense Fund / Blue
Ribbon Coalition. Sound too good to be true? Yes, but it's true and
has been for the last 18 years of the Doc Wong Riding Clinics with now
over 40,000 riders having attended my various events! The $20 donation
is appreciated and if you want to donate more, that would be
wonderful, but you won't be asked to.

Part A: Friday evening, 7:15 PM will be a 2 hour talk at my
chiropractic office:

Wong Chiropractic Center
1391 Woodside Road, Suite 200
Redwood City, CA 94061

Part B: Each ride has been full of wonderful surprises, a true
adventure! This clinic promises more of the same. The details of the
Sunday adventure ride will be announced at the Friday evening talk at
Wong Chiropractic.

Don't know if you have the skills to do the ride? Come Friday night
to find out more.


TO REGISTER: E-mail me ASAP at: [email protected] (limited to the first
40 riders, so if you register and can't make it, please let me know
ASAP as there will be a waiting list)

Anyone is welcome to come to the evening "Dirt Riding Workshop-Talks
and Demonstrations" part of the clinic and is not limited in numbers,
however the practical "Dirt Ride Drills and Dirt Ride" part of the
clinic is limited to 40 riders.

----------------
WHAT TO BRING TO THE DIRT RIDE

A. Snacks, lunch and water.

B. Gear: Minimally have a good helmet, gloves, heavy boots, blue jeans
and a long sleeved shirt. Full dirt riding gear is ideal: Dirt helmet,
goggles, chest protector, elbow guards, gloves, knee pads and dirt
boots. Regular dual sport riding and touring gear is ok too, but be
aware it may get hot.

C. Mechanical: bike in good order, knobbies will work best, however
dual-sport tires will work also. Street bike tires will provide a
unique experience! ;-)

D. There will be nowhere to drop off luggage, so plan on doing the
entire ride with what you have. This is afterall an "Adventure" ride,
so if you want, bring luggage to simulate a ride.

E. Type of bike. It has to be a legal dual sport bike that can go at
least 170 miles. Terrain will be a combination of street and dirt.
You can being a smaller dual sport bike, but make sure to being extra
gas or make friends with a fellow with a big gas tank. There are
always several 1200 GS Adventurers there with over 9 gallons of gas.
