The class is fun as well as informative.
We teach all levels of riders and even
advanced riders are pretty impressed
with what they get out of the drills.
- These are the same base skills I
practiced when racing to ISDE Gold
Medals, Baja 1000 overall wins, extreme
enduro finishes at races like Last Man
standing and Erzberg as well as saving

DAY ONE LEARNING THE
BASICS AND MUCH MORE:
This day is
dedicated to the basics and learning what it
takes to control the motorcycle to the max.
The skills include balance, braking, acceleration,
clutch and throttle control plus much more.
Once you master these skills Jimmy will help
you apply the skills to a practical
We teach bike control without
wasting muscle energy,
in essence harvesting the bikes energy to
perform what seemed impossible.
Near noon we break for lunch. This is a
great time to get to know the other
classmates and trade bench racing stories,
also a good time to
pick Jimmy’s brain about riding technique.
Believe us when we tell you that you will be
in overload right now. Typically we head out
for a few more drills, post lunch, then
accompany you on a
trail situations drill
through the beautiful Nevada desert to apply
your skills. Finishing off the day we
retreat to the casino for dinner and good
times with newly made riding buddies
Jimmy is putting the student in an awkward
position on the bike. This is simulating
how to be in the
correct riding position. Notice how far back
the student is, he is thinking to himself
"what the heck did I get myself into?",
however he is completely safe. We practice
out of control situations in a controlled
and safe manner. After this drill the
student will know what it is like to ride
up and down a steep hill, and he will know that it
is important to get in the
proper riding position. Disclaimer: do not
try this at home, the bikes are heavy and
unstable in this position.
