Is it warm there now?

Russian climate is made for destroying the enemy. Summer in Moscow is not a summer, today is +20 deg. C and cloudy.
But in Irkutsk there is +30 deg. C, hot and sunny.

How many riders do you have at your events?  They look fantastic. 

Maybe 150 bikes. Some of them are with 2nd numbers))

I'm about to make you famous again on our Facebook page.   
I had to laugh when you said it didn't bother you to have so many riders on the courses at the same time because Moscow traffic is very stressful.  Is that because it is crowded?  Or because everyone drives fast?  Or because drivers ignore the rules?

Is it warm there now?

Here is a video from Apr. 30 .

You can see that we have no trouble with riders running into each other because road traffic in Moscow is very stressful.

Yes, every fifth Gymkhana rider is a lady.

Kris, where are your photos?


Our pictures were on BamaRides.com, which crashed and we didn't have a backup.  So we lost almost everything we had up from our past gymkhanas.  I have trouble getting our members to remember to go onto this site and post pictures.  We haven't had but maybe one gymkhana event since we rebuilt the site and started over.

Above is the link to the June 10th event we are planning.   I trust there will be plenty of pictures from that event.  They won't be as good as yours because WE are not as good as you guys are.  Most of us are out of practice.  And I won't be any better, because I have to ride to a meeting that day in another part of the state.  : (

How many riders do you have at your events?  They look fantastic.  I can't see the video link because my workstation says the site isn't secure.  I will try to look at it tonight when I get home.

I am so happy that you post on this website!!  Keep doing what you are doing!

Welcome, Flywalker!

Post videos! 

We are not doing as much as we could be, here in Birmingham, but we DO have one June 10.   I won't be able to be there, but I'll ask them to take as many videos as they can, so that I can post them here.  We haven't had one for a couple of years, so everyone is going to be rusty.  We won't be killing it like they do in Japan and Russia, but everyone has to start somewhere.  What we lack in skill, we make up for in enthusiasm.  : )

Welcome, Huddy! 

We are having one in Falkville, Alabama on June 10.  Are you interested in riding down?

http://bamarides.com/ride/index.php?topic=1771.0;topicseen

I'm going to have to miss this one, unfortunately, due to a scheduling conflict.  It's killing me to miss it.   

Stay in touch!  I have lots of course layouts I could send you, and there are lots on this website too.  Happy cone killing!

General Discussion / Re: What motorcycle do you ride?

I have my engine guards now, and just need some time to practice.  We have a gymkhana scheduled for June 10, but I have an ABATE meeting that day!  ARG

ABATE = American Bikers Aimed Toward Education.  It's the state's Motorcycle Rights Organization.  I am the Secretary/Treasurer, so I can't miss a meeting. 

Of all days!!!

I've recently become aware of the motorcycle gymkhana phenomenon and am highly interested in participating.  I've been riding since 1994 and my wife and I have toured two-up and covered all of the US except Louisiana, Michigan, Wisconsin and Alaska.  A few years back I decided to become an MSF Coach and  served for 3.5 years as an MSF Coach and HD Riding Academy Instructor.  I have always been interested in slow speed control of motorcycles and have been fortunate to learn from some great riders associated with the Gold Wing Road Riders Association drill team here in the Nashville area.  If there is anyone in the Nashville area that has already started a chapter, please let me know.

Thanks,
Huddy
