    Motogymkhana on my Multistrada

    I'm always looking to improve as a rider, and as long as you practice, you will get better. I've taken the challenge to perfect Motogymkhana, I have a long ways to go. There is an active club in Southern and Northern Ca, if anyone is interested, please check out the link. I made the trek out to the Bay Area last weekend to participate. LOL, I forgot to empty out my panniers during the event, it was full luggage from my weekend trips.

    Red Cones indicate R/H turns, Blue = L/H turns. Red cone that are stacked with a smaller cone on top indicates R/H turn of 270 degrees or greater. Blue cone with a smaller cone stacked on top is a L/H turn of 270 degrees or greater. Yellow cones are gates.

    Very impressive Ken! I know I'd dump it Lol!
    If you can't fix it by hitting it with a hammer, it's electrical!

    I'd get lost or dizzy. Or both. That's epic. And the bike looks stunning too.

    Honestly, I'm surprised I haven't, I'm pretty aggressive. I'm tippy toes at best, usually favoring to one side of the bike when stopped. But once you're moving, it gets easier. There is no way I can keep the bike from falling by putting a foot down, bike is too heavy. There have been plenty of drops and even crashes during these events. Felt sorry for one women, she had a brand new BMW S1000R and dumped it. Scratched up her fairing.

    Thanks, I get dizzy too. And I'm terrible when it comes to memorizing the course. I have to study them the night before, and even after that, I have to watch others ride the course before I venture out.

    There is a strong Motogymkhana presence in NY, they practice out on Long Island at some abandoned or closed airport. Fortunately for me, there is a strong California chapter.

    I didn't realize that dirty undies helped in low-speed maneuvers :-) Nice work Kenny. Hope someday to ride as well as that.
