AWESOME EXTRA!

Okay, so I just spent 2 days ROASTING. (I recommend taking this class during the one week Houston Winter) We had a blast. The instructors were great (David D3/Mike) and the class was fun, interesting, informative... Brutal. I'm still terrified to turn and don't know how long it will take me to actually get on the highway. And while I don't expect to be cruising the highway tomorrow, I do have some suggestions.

THE BIGGEST (AND I MEAN BIGGEST IMO) benefit was to my WEIGHT! I lost 5lbs - That's what the scale said ladies and gentlemen... I'm sure it was because you had to eat before you arrived, you only had a 1 hour break (barely enough time to find food, let alone eat it) for lunch and there was no "SNACKING" on the course. Like some demented Sauna/Motorcycle Boot Camp!

So, to Awesome Cycles... I recommend an addition to your BRC classes.

Range lessons for BRC grads and beginners with their M liscense. A 10lb class. Something in the 5 day range with a road trip to Galveston the completing Saturday. You will have to hire more instructors, provide breakfast and lunch, somewhere in the $200/$350 range. Do that and I promise to be among the 1st to sign up!

I think that if your sister and some other hot chicks are there a bunch of peeps will show up. As you ride and meet other folks you will find buddies that are on your skill level I would not pay $350 to take another class. I to went to Awesome cycles and think that they have great instructors and a good setup. But then again I have never taken a class before so I have nothing to compare then to, but I have and always will recommend them. to folks

Riding is a progressive sport, the more you ride the more you progress. Just dont listen to the speed deamon voice that gets inside your head, he is a very bad man

Sure, we had breaks. But I was too busy using the Red Neck A/C and falling down to eat. I really can't remember seeing anyone eating...

You are all missing the point of the "extra classes" and no snacks.

Not if you are unfamiliar with the area and don't want fast food...

Besides... IF lunch had been provided (something healthy and light) I may have lost even more! Remember - It's not about the class at this point, it's about the W.E.I.G.H.T. (And meeting other people and having fun.)

Once you get on the Freeway Dear try riding from Houston to Dallas (in a non-perforated leather jacket) and Back then Check the Scale. When I took the class we had both water and snack breaks sounds hmm......

Watching onces weight and staying fit is for men and women. Dont know any person including YankeeR6 that is not aware of there weight.

Personally when it is hot outside and I am out in it I don't eat. Eating a meal when I am hot boggs me down and I feel bad. water water water FTW!

If you would have pushed all 4 cars with us, it may very well have been a 10 lb. day.

Next time, I'll remember to bring my tank-bag-full-o-snacks, just in case.

Just to be clear, the BRC does not include pushing cars around.








Maybe this thread belongs someplace else????
