    Eireannach Rothai is having a skills day at the Everett Aquasox stadium parking lot on Sunday, June 17 at 9am.

    There will be a cone course set up and lots of ridiculously experienced riders hanging around to teach you new skills, or just brush up on old ones.

    100% FREE. Just show up and we'll take as much time as you like to help you improve.

    Hopefully in, for a change I don't think I have any scheduling conflicts.

    Thanks ER and CodeBlue for continuing these.

    Finally one of these falls on a day when I don't have any prior commitments.

    I've been wanting to come do this for a long time.

    Thanks for doing these.

    I'll be there again. Helped me improve my cornering infinityx last time. Can we work on breaking as well?

    Morwan, I look forward to seeing your bike again. Quite the looker.

    We'll have a more continuous course next time to limit the standing around time. There will be braking practice available.

    A motorcycle. A helmet. We'd prefer more gear (jacket, boots, gloves etc.), but we won't turn you away.

    They have been very nice to let an old squid like me squirrel around and even crash a few times!? :roll: But there isn't much of a chance to practice backing it in from speed. If you like flat tracking around in small circles, you'll love it.

    To be fair, though, we let you get away with a lot more than we'd allow from just about anyone else. We just figure you know the risks. If someone showed up on a brand new R6 with temp tags and it was his/her first bike we'd reign that in pretty quickly.

    Uh oh... This doesn't sound like my father's msf course. I'm probably not too good at flat tracking my r6.

    In, +1!

    Have been looking forward to the next skills day - the last one was super helpful.

    Thanks for putting these on!
