Well…I spent an entire week doing gymkhana……

 

….and all I got was this lousy emblem…..

.

I got certified as a Motor Scout this week!
First, they gave me this…..

Then, they pointed me at a huge skidpad FULL of these…..

 

 

 

..And said, “Ride.”
…At least, that was the week in a nutshell… :)

I just want to thank the Bamarides community, because, after attending a couple of Gymkhana events, I [u]KNOW[/u] that it had a profound impact on my performance this week.
I learned to whip a 670 lb bike around a myriad of cone courses, and even use it to hill-climb, and off-road  crazy
I learned how to work off of the bike, using it to the most effect to perform daily activities.
I learned about escorts…..BTW…
The instructors were great, and really worked with us….(one other candidate completely burned out his clutch)  :(
Had a blast, and I just had to share it!
Thanks again for the Cone-practice!!
