Just wanted to say "Thanks" to Patrick and Motorcycles Unlimited for putting on this class for us FREE of charge. A lot of good information was passed on to us.

It was a bit disappointing that not everyone who signed up showed up. There were 7 of us. The least you can do if you sign up is to SHOW UP! Patrick puts this on for FREE at HIS place during work hours. He even had coffee and snacks for us.

Thank you Patrick for your time and knowledge and thanks to everyone at Motorcycles Unlimited who put up with us in your workspace. I am sure everyone appreciated the class and took something away with them.

Good to meet you MHers (Mike, Armando, Nelson, Dave, Tony, Nicolas).

Absolutely, thanks a million Patrick and Motorcycles Unlimited for having us this morning. Lots of great info shared and I see why Motorcycles Unlimited is held is such high regard.......

HOWEVER, how unfortunate would it be for these FREE classes be cancelled due people not show up when they've committed. C'mon MH this is an awesome opportunity for us to learn how to take better care of the bike which many of us ride on a daily basis. Lets make sure next time we have a full roster to one of these things.

PS. Kneepads are great! Hardly knew they were there on the ride home!

Here here ... Thank you Patrick for your time and knowledge. Same goes to the entire Motorcycles Unlimited team. Definitely an awesome opportunity for any mh'r wanting to learn (or refresh) some basic maintenance procedures for FREE. Motorcycles Unlimited FTW!

Don't let this chance go away if you REALLY plan to be involved with motorcycles and want to take care of your bike.

It was great to meet some new MH fellows!!!

Nick.

Thanks Patrick

It was great, a lot of great info.

I don't believe that nowadays a lot of shop owners would offer a class like this or take the time to do it for FREE.

And for the people that couldn't make it, you guys missed a lot of great info.

Thanks again.

Tony.
