Took the 2 day workshop this weekend. It was a transformational experience. We road in the Blue Ridge mountains near Floyd, VA. There were 3 students and each was equipped with Sena 20s Bluetooth (rider must provide). After some discussion about technique and a review of his "mantra" we were on the bikes for a demonstration of riding posture (pretty much the yoga posture). Then we hit the road. Jim discussed lane position on the approach, where to look, leaning, etc. This all took place in real time while we followed him down the road. Later, we each took turns out in front with him directly behind as we got instant feedback on what we were doing right and where to improve. That direct, timely feedback was very effective.
Jim places a heavy emphasis on safety and smoothness. He knows the roads well and we were treated to some truly exceptional twisty's with breathtaking scenery.
I finished the weekend with confidence to ride quickly and safely through the most technical roads.
