And special acknowledgement to L. Ron Hubbard who has provided me with the vital tools to be effective in life, making it possible for me to be successful in family, work and my passion for motorcycling!
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I think you'll like this!

As always, there will also be a discussion about:

1. Riding Within Your Abilities
2. Doc Wong's Smooth Street Riding Technique
3. Public Relations

The following description was provided by Michael Nelson nelson@seahunt.imat.com

Several folks have expressed their interest in attending, but what we need for you to do now is to CONFIRM via E-mail or telephone to Dr. Wong's office in Redwood City if you're planning on attending.

The phone number at the office is 1-650-365-7775.
The clinic will meet at (of all places) a clinic... ;-)

We'll meet at 8AM at: Active Life Medical and Chiropractic Center
1391 Woodside Road,
Suite 200
Redwood City, CA 94061

Please be gassed up and ready for a three hour ride after the one hour seminar. We won't be stopping for a snack until about 10 am, so if you get hungry before that time of the day either bring a snack with you or eat before you arrive.

You can gas up before the clinic at any of the numerous gas stations on Woodside Road where the clinic is.

Dr. Harry Wong, a prominent Redwood City chiropractor and extremely knowledgeable sport rider, has started a monthly series of Motorcycle Riding Clinics. These seminars are FREE, and consist of a one hour lecture followed by a three hour group ride in the beautiful Santa Cruz mountains.

PURPOSE: Enhance your riding skills, increase your enjoyment, and learn better riding survival reflexes.

COST: FREE

TYPE OF MOTORCYCLE: If it has 2 wheels and a motor, you're invited.

SKILL LEVEL REQUIRED: Since these are not fast sport rides, any reasonably competent rider should be able to participate. We recommend that you be comfortable with your bike and knowledgeable about your (and your bike's) limitations and capabilities. If you have been riding for at least six months you've probably got the minimum level of expertise required. The bottom line is that if you can safely negotiate the mountainous roads off Skyline Blvd, then you do have the minimum skills for the ride.

EQUIPMENT REQUIRED: A motorcycle in good mechanical condition, helmet, gloves, heavy jacket (leather or heavy material), heavy pants, boots... in other words, sensible riding attire. If you show up in shorts, tank top, Oakley blades and flipflops on your feet, you _may_be invited to go home. You must also have a valid motorcycle license and insurance. Full leathers are encouraged.

RIDING LOCATION: Any and all backroads off Skyline Blvd, along thecoast, Highway 9, etc.

HOW TO REGISTER: E-mail Dr. Wong at DOCWONG@AOL.Com or call (650) 365-7775.

TIMES: Sunday mornings, 8:00AM to 9:00AM for the workshopwith approximately 4 hours riding afterwards. Lunch in Davenport at 12noon. We're usually done at 2:30pm with a short talk on Skyline Blvd (Hwy 35) and Hwy 9.

WHO: Dr. Harry Wong, with guest ride leaders, and who knows?

WORKSHOP FORMAT: The one hour talk will cover one major topic. Then when we ride, we ride with the emphasis of applying the principles of that one topic.

We split the riders into groups of around 10 riders each, according to what YOU think your riding skill level is. The first group will generally ride at a faster pace and the last group riding at the slowest pace.

You can ride at a slower pace, you don't need to feel like you have to keep up with the riders in front of you.

We'll have volunteer ride leaders leading you on the route thru the hills. Those riders will be designated to you prior to beginning the ride. As volunteer riders, they are often very willing to help you in any way they can. So feel free to ask them questions on riding, the route, etc.

It's important to approach this whole thing with the right attitude.

If one of the volunteer ride leaders talks to you, it's meant to be constructive criticism and should be taken that way. After all, the purpose of the Clinics is to improve your skills.

We try to ride at a moderate pace, and we hold the speed down on the straights to allow slower riders to catch up. We stop at any intersection where we're turning off to another road and we don't continue until everyone has arrived.

We'll try to make rest stops long enough so that the slower riders will get a rest, too.

TOPICS:

o "Cornering Confidence - Judging Entrance Speed"
o "Cornering Confidence - The Steering Input"
o "Smooth Riding - Throttle Control"
o "Cornering Confidence - Lines of Travel (1-2 Turn Method)"
o "Smooth Riding - Handle bar pressure"
o "Cornering Confidence - Pivot Steering"
o "Smooth Riding - Body English-Weight Transfer"
o "Cornering Confidence - Stable Body Position and Anchor Points"
o "Smooth Riding - Awareness and Vision"
o "Cornering Confidence - Road Surfaces and Curve Configurations"
o "Cornering Confidence - Wet Weather Riding and Loose Conditions"

RIDE ROUTE:
We start at Dr. Wong's office on Woodside Road in
Redwood City. We go up Woodside Road, through
Woodside, and turn right on King's Mountain Road. We
go up King's Mountain Road to Skyline and stop there
for a short break. This is the first opportunity for
our volunteer leaders to give any tips to the riders
they've observed.

From there, we head down Tunitas Creek Road (described
by my late friend Brett as "a goddamned GOAT TRAIL!")
;-). We follow Tunitas Creek Road all the way down to
Highway 1, where we take a short jaunt down 1 to Stage
Road. Left on Stage road to San Gregorio's little
General Store, where we take another short break.

From San Gregorio, we go south on Stage Road to the
little town of Pescadero (which is a veritable
METROPOLIS compared to San Gregorio and has gas). Another short break at
Pescadero, and then we head east on Pescadero Road a
short ways to Cloverdale Road, where we turn south
(right) again. We follow Cloverdale road down to Gazos
Creek Road, where we turn west (right).

We follow Gazos Creek Road to Highway 1 (where there is gas, and then take
a trip down 1 to Davenport, where we stop for lunch.
After lunch, it's south on Highway 1 again to Bonny
Doone Road, where we turn east (left). Don't turn
right there, or you'll be surprised at the lack of
floatation a set of leathers provides. ;-)

Up Bonny Doon Road to Smith Grade, right on Smith
Grade to Empire Grade. North (left) on Empire Grade to
Jamison Creek Road, down Jamison Creek Road to Highway
236. Right on Highway 236 to Highway 9 in Boulder
Creek. Another short break in Boulder Creek (gas, if
needed), then up Highway 9 (east) to Skyline, where we
assemble at the little rest area there for a final
meeting. After our meeting and bull session, the group
breaks up and everyone is on their own. Hope you can
find your way home from there!
