It's somewhat of an Action Motorcycle School tradition...a strange mix of good friends, Sportbikes, Great Californian Roads, Desert rides, Coastal rides, Beach and surf, Midnight BBQ, Six Flags, Universal Studios, Alcatraz, San Fran, Las Vegas, Big Sur, LUCYYYY, Spearmint Rhino, $20.00 bills, Santa Paula Airport, Reg's Hanger, exotic side trips, L.A. Ghettos, Cannery Road, Palm Readers... otherwise known as the great California Adventure. Seattle Raceway, done. Portland Raceway, done. Willow Springs Raceway, done, Laguna Seca, done, done. I wish to thank all my friends / family for such fond memories. Yeah, life's short...we're enjoying it.
I was seriously thinking about not carrying on with this tradition due to the work load need to make this trip come true. I decided to carry on this tradition because of two reasons 1) A couple of good friends offered to help handle the logistics of this big undertaking. Trust me, it's alot of work to make all right elements work together. 2) We sponsored these trips as a way to THANK all our former students for their support. It's a way to give something back to our students/family. It's a shame to stop this tradition.
2004 will be modified in a number of ways. 1) Transportation on our trailers and trucks will be limited to 20 spots (decrease from 40 spots in 2003). If you got your own bike transportation down, we can fit you in. 2) Due to cold temperatures experienced last year at Laguna Seca (late november)...we're doing it in September. Yeah it's hot, great for the tires! 3) 1996 AMA SuperSport Champ and 2002 AMA Formula Extreme Champion Jason Pridmore of Star Motorcycle School http://starmotorcycle.com/ will tailor a course specifically for our learning needs. Need a faster pace? No problem, Jason says he's more than happy to turn up the pace. He mentioned that he would make sure that everyone of us canucks would get individual attention...making us happy. 4) TWO DAY CAMP @ Willow Springs Raceway will run for approx. $550.00 u.s. We require half $225 deposit and the remaining balance paid in Sept. Yep, that's two days in the hot dessert. It's back to back, therefore you'll get more bang per buck, you're sure to learn something from an AMA Champ. Messed up on the first day, you still got the second to work on. 5) $$$$ ? Transportation of bike $250 ~ to and back from California. Car pool to get down...we'll talk.
This only an annoucement of our intentions in 2004, it's to get a "feel" on what we're gonna do this year. If you're interested email Alona @ firstname.lastname@example.org . She will put you on the interested list. Since spots are extremely limited this year, spots will be open to ACTION participants who supported this adventure from years past. If we have more interest, I'll look into making arrangement to get everyone down there. No promises...I can't pull a rabbit out the hat. If you're not an ACTION GRAD and if we got an open spot ...we love to have ya, no promises, very unlikely.
If you're going ...you're going. No... blah, blah, trust me I'm going!$#!
It's gonna be blast...it always has.
