Race tech technical edge suspension seminars

It's time again for another fun-filled week of suspension secrets. In all my years of being around motorcycles I've become convinced that suspension is the least understood part of the bike. This seems true even though I think everyone would benefit from a better understanding from Johnny-Joe-Racer's Dad to Suspension Tuners that do it for a living.

I started hosting suspension seminars back in 1994 because there is not a lot of clear, easy-to-understand information and there certainly is a lot of incorrect theory out there. My goal is to have everyone that attends leave with a very good practical understanding of how suspension works and how to tune it no matter what type of riding (driving) you are in to. You will love it. I guarantee it!.
