Welcome to the training forum!

Hi All,

We are looking to evolve and improve a little more.
The means the creation of a new forum "Training"

The Training forum will help guide new riders to the correct training and
information that is vital for the new rider. Enchanter has joined the mod
core to help us get this together and his years of service to the community
as a MSF instructor will no doubt be of great value to the board as it has
been to so many members that have rolled thru his classes.

Training will involve more than just getting started for sure. We will have
info and discussions on Road Racing training as well. Keith Code with the
California Superbike School has agreed to provide some Q & A sessions for
people looking for higher level or road race training.
(Thanks Keith )

I hope that we can build this forum into a great source of info for many and
those often asked questions that continually pop up can be answered by just
a quick look through the sticky's and links that will be available here.

Yes, my young Padwan Learner. Your training is not yet complete.

Would the Welcome Mat be a more appropriate section for this? Plus I keep clicking on it out of habit thinking it's the photo section.

The intent for this part of barf was for it to NOT be 'newbie' specific training. We would like to see this area develop into many different directions related to training motorcyclists, both new riders and those with more developed skills.

I thought this section looked new.

Great idea!

I'll try and provide some canyon wisdom along side the track wisdom.
