Spring is coming! I promise. We hope you have been planning your rides these past two months. Pretty soon we will be able to get the bikes out. When you do, remember each spring you need to get the feel of the bike again. This is one of the reasons GWRRA offers bike/trike courses.
Wisconsin had lost the ability to offer the courses a few years ago. Bill Bannasch is one of the team members that helped reestablish this in Wisconsin. We now have instructors coming to teach and hone your skills. You will be receiving class schedules this month (if you haven’t already).
Many of you may say, “I’ve taken the course once, I don’t need it again” or “I have been riding for years I do not need to take this course.” These courses do not teach you how to ride down the road; they teach you what you can do with the big bike and how to control it. The course is mostly slow maneuvers. As some of you know, I will play a little aggressive in an empty parking lot. I learned the limits of the bike from these courses and am practicing these limits when you see me.
