Doc Wong Certified First Aid/CPR for Motorcyclists!! Sun, March 18, 2012

Starting in 2012, this workshop will be at my new office location in Belmont! See below for the address:


             Wong Chiropractic Center

             1021 Alameda De Las Pulgas

Hi,

Most of us have been there....on a ride and someone goes down. You see
that cloud of dust or the rider is in front of you and you get that
sinking, oh s....t feeling and hope it's not too bad.

But what if the injuries are bad? Are you prepared to assist? Will you do
the right thing? It can mean the difference between life and death, minor
or major injuries. There's an even more important procedure than tending
to the fallen rider, what's that?

Learn what to do and not do when the unexpected happens. What's the very
first thing you must do even before attending to the fallen rider. How do
you handle road rash, fractures, and bleeding. When should you remove the
helmet? What about spinal injuries, shock and much more.

This is a power packed workshop, hands on, First Aid and CPR class geared
for you. So you can be ready for the worst, but of course hope for the best!

We'll even go over what you should have in your First Aid kits!

This 5 hour First Aid / CPR course which will help you in handling the most
common First Aid / CPR situations that you encounter as a motorcyclist!

To top it off, you'll get a CPR certification (2 year, Adult & Pediatric, American Heart Assn.) and first aid certification!

If you are an EMT, I need volunteer instructors to help out! The number of
volunteers will determine the number of students I can have.

So e-mail me if you're an EMT (Emergency Medical Technician).

What: Doc Wong Certified First Aid/CPR for Motorcyclists!
When: Sunday, March 18, 2012
Time: 9am to 3pm
Where: Doc Wong's office at 1021 Alameda de las Pulgas, Belmont, CA 94002
Cost: $40 (includes CPR and first aid certification)
How to sign up: e-mail docwong@aol.com.  Please include name and telephone number.

Proceeds go to the JW House at Kaiser Hospital in Santa Clara. JW House keeps families together during medical crisis by offering a welcoming home just steps away from the hospital, providing a caring and compassionate environment that inspires hope.
http://www.jwhouse.org/ (http://www.jwhouse.org/)

We had this class last year which was unbelieveable! It was the BEST First
Aid class I've ever been to.

They really geared the class for motorcyclists and motorcycling situations.
It was so close to being a certified class that this year I just added
another hour and you get the certification too!


Ride street, ride track, ride dirt, trials.....ride.....well!

Next Basic Suspension Workshop-Part 2, March 16 Fri night!

(Starting in 2012, this workshop will be at my new office location in Belmont! See below for the address.)

Hi,

You're invited to the next:  Basic Suspension Workshop - Part 2 by local expert rider, Gary Jaehne!

Here's the only catch:  It's limited to 35 riders because we will be taking apart and examining the internals of a set of forks.  Yes, you'll see the innards of the thing and see how it works to gain a deeper understanding of how suspension works.  Those who attended the last Basic Suspension Workshop (Level 1) will get first priority. 

One month there was even a guy that flew from Colorado to attend the workshop and flew back the next morning!

The Suspension Seminar Part 2, should be extraordinarily interesting tonight, Gary will go through the normal presentation portion of the program and will vary from the previous format by adding a lab where he'll be setting up a folding card table to perform a complete "piece by piece" dissection process on a full front fork assembly, and a rear shock assembly, while the students observe.  We'll be identifying the function of each individual item, as it's removed.  Should be a very educational experience, and rare opportunity for the riders in attendance.  I'm excited about implementing this new "twist" on the suspension training program!

Ken Lipman, our "Silent Hero" has been attending these too!

If there's any room left, and I expect there will be, you can attend IF you already have a basic working knowledge of suspension and are familiar with setting the sag adjustment on your bike.

            Topic:  Basic Suspension Workshop -  Part 2
            Place:  Full Motion Chiropractic
                        Carlmont Shopping Center (Next to Baskin Robbins)
                        1021 Alamenda De Las Pulgas
                        Belmont, CA 94002 
           Time:  Friday night, March 16, 2012 from 7:15pm to 9:45pm
            Cost:  the cost has doubled  ;-)   ( $0 * 2 = $0 )
            How to sign up:  e-mail me at:  docwong@aol.com

Here's the scoop from Gary:

"I'm very pleased with the materials that I've put together so far, as I believe they will be quite effective at directly addressing the questions and issues that most motorcyclists have regarding the 'black magic' of setting up their compression and rebound adjustments, as well as other related aspects of suspension tuning."

You'll also get a working knowledge of how compression and rebound works on a bike by actually adjusting the suspension.

"The format for The "PART 2" seminar looks like this:
******************************************************
1.  Spring "Preload": "Setting proper "SAG", a quick review"
2. Compression & Rebound : "Solving the mystery"
      3.   Dissembling a set of forks and examining it's internals
4. Advanced suspension tuning: "Going beyond the factory":
. Wheelbase
. Fork tube height
      . Fork oil level/viscosity
5. Troubleshooting common bike handling complaints (student contribution)
6.   Cartridge fork dissembly
7. Final Question & Answer session
******************************************************
This will be a 2 1/2 hour (non-riding) workshop held on Friday night 7:15pm to 9:45pm at my office in Redwood City.

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

Dr. Harry Wong, a prominent Belmont chiropractor and extremely knowledgeable sport rider, is holding a monthly series of MotorcycleRiding 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.

The Doc Wong Riding Clinics are now in it's 15th year!

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

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

SKILL LEVEL 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.  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 ofexpertise required. 

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, tanktop, 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 but not required.* You are responsible for your own safety.

WORKSHOP FORMAT: (Each month is a different riding skills topic)

1. Meet at Doc Wong's Chiropractic oiffice in Carlmont Shopping Center at 9 AM. After signing wavers, Doc Wong gives an hour lecture on the day's riding topic. He'll also go over Riding Within Your Abilities, Group Riding, and Road Manners.* You'll be asked to fill out an optional survey for riding feedback and health issues. Then we will be split up into small groups with ride leader volunteers to lead you thru the hills.* 

2. The Ride: 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 theride. As volunteer riders, they are often very willing to help you inany 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'tcontinue until everyone has arrived.

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

Ride Route:* http://tinyurl.com/6gs5yu

From Dr. Wong's office up to Woodside Road, up Kings Mountain Road, down Tunitas Creek Road and a short stop at the San Gregorio Road. Continue on Stage Road to the town of Pescadero to Cloverdale, Gazos Creek Road to Hwy 1. Then down Hwy 1 to Davenport for lunch. After lunch, it's south on Highway 1 to Bonny Doone Road, right on Smith Grade to Empire Grade, down Jamison Creek Road to Boulder Creek, then up Hwy 9 to the corner of Hwy 9 and Skyline at the rest stop 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!

Hi,

You're invited the next Basic Suspension Part One Workshop!

I'm hyper-excited, this workshop will demystify and really enhance your knowledge of suspension setup. It is geared for those of you who are neophytes in suspension to those of you who want to know more about how set up your bike properly!

One month there was even a guy that flew from Colorado to attend the workshop and flew back the next morning!

Thanks to the efforts of Gary Jaehne, a local expert rider, this Basic Suspension Clinic is possible. Yes, it's free too.

Here's the scoop:

This will be a 2 hour (non-riding) workshop held on:

Friday night, April 13, 2012 from 7:15pm to 9:30pm
At my office in Belmont. Cost: $0.00

To register, just e-mail me at:  docwong@aol.com

About the topic, "Basic Suspension Setup": Gary has made up worksheets with pertinent data that will be very simple and understandable. He will even have basic terminology defined so that you will know the terms and how they apply to making your bike feel good, bad, bumpy, springy, etc. The workshop will give you a very good understanding of how a suspension works and what you need to do to your bike to improve it's handling characteristics.

Workshop format: 

1.  Basic terms with demonstrations on a sport bike. Gary will go over each term one by one and demonstrate them so that you will see them in action.

2.  Adjustments and how they effect the handling of your motorcycle and how you can do them on your bike.

3.  Poor handling characteristics due to "mis-adjustments" and how they can be remedied.

The workshop will be kept simple enough to ensure that when you leave, you'll have a very good understanding of how a suspension works and an idea of how to adjust your own bike. You'll have handouts and worksheets to make notes on too!

Due to the content of the materials presented, parental guidance is suggested as your enhanced understanding of how your suspension works and its subsequent demystification may bring about wide grins!

We do have to limit the number of riders to 40, due to the fact that we want everyone to see how the adjustments are made on the motorcycle. 

Want to use your bike as the demo bike for the evening? E-mail me with the specifics of your bike:  Make, model, year and if it has adjustable front and back preload.

Hi,

Most of us have been there....on a ride and someone goes down. You see
that cloud of dust or the rider is in front of you and you get that
sinking, oh s....t feeling and hope it's not too bad.

But what if the injuries are bad? Are you prepared to assist? Will you do
the right thing? It can mean the difference between life and death, minor
or major injuries. There's an even more important procedure than tending
to the fallen rider, what's that?

Learn what to do and not do when the unexpected happens. What's the very
first thing you must do even before attending to the fallen rider. How do
you handle road rash, fractures, and bleeding. When should you remove the
helmet? What about spinal injuries, shock and much more.

This is a power packed workshop, hands on, First Aid and CPR class geared
for you. So you can be ready for the worst, but of course hope for the best!

We'll even go over what you should have in your First Aid kits!

This 5 hour First Aid / CPR course which will help you in handling the most
common First Aid / CPR situations that you encounter as a motorcyclist!

To top it off, you'll get a CPR certification (2 year, Adult & Pediatric, American Heart Assn.) and first aid certification!

If you are an EMT, I need volunteer instructors to help out! The number of
volunteers will determine the number of students I can have.

So e-mail me if you're an EMT (Emergency Medical Technician).

What: Doc Wong Certified First Aid/CPR for Motorcyclists!
When: Sunday, June 10, 2012
Time: 9am to 3pm
Where: Doc Wong's office at 1021 Alameda de las Pulgas, Belmont, CA 94002
Cost: $40 (includes CPR and first aid certification)
How to sign up: e-mail docwong@aol.com.  Please include name and telephone number.

Proceeds go to the JW House at Kaiser Hospital in Santa Clara. JW House keeps families together during medical crisis by offering a welcoming home just steps away from the hospital, providing a caring and compassionate environment that inspires hope.
http://www.jwhouse.org/ (http://www.jwhouse.org/)

We had this class last year which was unbelieveable! It was the BEST First
Aid class I've ever been to.

They really geared the class for motorcyclists and motorcycling situations.
It was so close to being a certified class that this year I just added
another hour and you get the certification too!

Title: Doc Wong's Noob Wife-New Street Riding Experiences
Post by: docwong on April 09, 2012, 09:55:24 AM
Hi everyone,  thought I'd share the experience on this next stage or Alexa riding:

Well after 4 parking lot sessions, Alexa started getting pretty comfortable starting, stopping and cornering.  She was definitely looking pretty comfortable with controlling her bike, staying light on the handlebars.  She getting totally bored with this and that she was going to start riding on the streets and that I could come with her if I wanted to.  I probably over did it with the baby steps in not wanting to push her.  

Who am I to say no and she did look ready to me too, so off we went her on the Ninja 250 and me on my vintage Guzzi so I can go appropriately slow.

So wow, first time riding on the street with the love of my life.  I was definitely too watchful and aware to really enjoy the  moment, but writing about it seems to bring back the joy on this first experience.

I choose a very easy street, Canada Road with very light traffic and a minimum of intersections.  At first I led, which I feel didn't work out so well. I could see cars tailgating her which made me nervous.  I finally had her go in front of me so I could buffer the tailgaiters.  

Tailgating cars???  This is a very foriegn experience since I avoid having cages behind me, I'll either pass or split lanes to not be tailgaited as I think it's a very vulnerable position to be while riding a motorcycle.  So she's going pretty slow which is to be expected but here I have a car up my ass and I'm really getting pretty irritated.  

Feeling threatened and there to protect my love, I try the big mean biker routine and turn around and try the giving dirty looks and other gestures and I found quickly that this had the opposite effect, the cages didn't back off and seemed to be even more aggressive.  Maybe it was the absence of long hair and tatoos that gave my bluff away, anyway it didn't work, I was obviously too wimpy looking. ;-)

I calmed down and it dawned on me, like duh, it always pays to be courtous.  So instead, I turned around and gestured to the car behind me, pointing to Alexa in front of me and letting the driver know that she was a newbie and oh well, what are we going to do?   And WOW!  The cars consistently backed off and when passing us, smiled knowingly.  It was very cute actually.  They got that she was a new rider and that I was just riding along helping her.  Wow, the lessons I re-learn.  It's almost always better to handle others with respect and dignity!

Anyway going from one end of Canada Road to the other and back seemed like to took forever, but she did really well, handled her bike well and came back home pretty happy.  She said that was a nice ride and everything went smoothly and that it was easy.  

Me, at the time I guess I was happy, but more relieved than happy.  Me, I'm making sure I don't put any performance expectations on her. If she wanted to stay in the parking lot for another 20 days, I'd have no trouble with it.  At this point I'm pretty happy with my very new experience with motorcycling.  For so many years my experience riding has been striving to improve my knowledge and riding whether it was on the track, dirt or touring.  This experience has been just as challenging as anything I've done in the past.  I hope Alexa continues to take baby steps thru her journey to confident and safe riding.

Me, I can see that I'm practicing going at beginner pace and learning lots of other things in the experience.  Lesson learned: be courteous to other car drivers, it usually pays off.

Glad to hear she is making good progress. [thumbsup] 

The next new step for her to build her confidence will be for you to let her go by herself (as hard as that might be for you).  As long as she feels ok with moving over and waving cars by, and goes at a low traffic time, it will be good for her.  She can just do the same route a few times until she feels comfortable with it.

Not only do you get the knowledge necessary to ride with more confidence and less pain, but I'll also personally coach you on your bike.  This is an evening workshop and while we don't go out for a ride on this one, if you bring your bike, you'll get coached on it.

This workshop is designed to help you make the necessary adjustments *
to your riding positons and to your bike to optimize your personal *
efficiency and comfort of riding your motorcycle in all conditions.

To achieve this, I'll be covering different riding styles or positions *
on different bikes in differing conditons along with what needs to be *
changed to ergonomically fit your bike to you. *Also, I'll cover the *
most common neck, back and wrist problems I see and what you can do to *
ride comfortably.

Riding Positions will include optimal positions for street, sport, *
toruing, racing and dirt or dual sport riding. *Which positions *
produce optimum performance and which get riders into trouble along *
with which causes the most pain and what to do about it. *I'll *
demonstate on a couple of very different bikes, a sport bike and an *
upright dual sport bike. *That way I can demonstrate the range of *
riding positions and the range of ergonomic adjustments you can do to *
your bike. Find out how certain riding styles and poor bike setup can *
be hazardous and how to solve them. The end result is you being more *
comfortable on your bike with less fatigue and having more fun!

The ergonomics part of this workshop will cover how to adjust your *
bike to your body and style of riding. The ergonomics of different *
bike types and body types will be addressed and participants will have *
a working knowledge of what do do with their bikes *
adjustments.Optimize your bike for your riding style. *Adjusting *
levers, foot controls, handlber bar placements

I'll also cover exercises and stretches for you neck, back and wrists.

After the talk and demonstrations, etc we'll go outside where *
you'll get on your bike and I'll coach you on body position and make *
suggestions on the ergonomics of your motorcycle.

Next Basic Suspension Workshop-Part 2, May 11 Fri night!

(Starting in 2012, this workshop will be at my new office location in Belmont! See below for the address.)

(http://www.freeimagehosting.net/t/87895.jpg) (http://www.freeimagehosting.net/87895)

Hi,

You're invited to the next:  Basic Suspension Workshop - Part 2 by local expert rider, Gary Jaehne!

Here's the only catch:  It's limited to 35 riders because we will be taking apart and examining the internals of a set of forks.  Yes, you'll see the innards of the thing and see how it works to gain a deeper understanding of how suspension works.  Those who attended the last Basic Suspension Workshop (Level 1) will get first priority. 

One month there was even a guy that flew from Colorado to attend the workshop and flew back the next morning!

The Suspension Seminar Part 2, should be extraordinarily interesting tonight, Gary will go through the normal presentation portion of the program and will vary from the previous format by adding a lab where he'll be setting up a folding card table to perform a complete "piece by piece" dissection process on a full front fork assembly, and a rear shock assembly, while the students observe.  We'll be identifying the function of each individual item, as it's removed.  Should be a very educational experience, and rare opportunity for the riders in attendance.  I'm excited about implementing this new "twist" on the suspension training program!

Ken Lipman, our "Silent Hero" has been attending these too!

If there's any room left, and I expect there will be, you can attend IF you already have a basic working knowledge of suspension and are familiar with setting the sag adjustment on your bike.

            Topic:  Basic Suspension Workshop -  Part 2
            Place:  Full Motion Chiropractic
                        Carlmont Shopping Center (Next to Baskin Robbins)
                        1021 Alameda De Las Pulgas
                        Belmont, CA 94002 
           Time:  Friday night, May 11, 2012 from 7:00pm to 9:45pm
            Cost:  the cost has doubled  ;-)   ( $0 * 2 = $0 )
            How to sign up:  e-mail me at:  docwong@aol.com

Here's the scoop from Gary:

"I'm very pleased with the materials that I've put together so far, as I believe they will be quite effective at directly addressing the questions and issues that most motorcyclists have regarding the 'black magic' of setting up their compression and rebound adjustments, as well as other related aspects of suspension tuning."

You'll also get a working knowledge of how compression and rebound works on a bike by actually adjusting the suspension.

"The format for The "PART 2" seminar looks like this:
******************************************************
1.  Spring "Preload": "Setting proper "SAG", a quick review"
2. Compression & Rebound : "Solving the mystery"
      3.   Dissembling a set of forks and examining it's internals
4. Advanced suspension tuning: "Going beyond the factory":
. Wheelbase
. Fork tube height
      . Fork oil level/viscosity
5. Troubleshooting common bike handling complaints (student contribution)
6.   Cartridge fork dissembly
7. Final Question & Answer session
******************************************************
This will be a 2 1/2 hour (non-riding) workshop held on Friday night 7:15pm to 9:45pm at my office in Redwood City.

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

Dr. Harry Wong, a prominent Belmont chiropractor and extremely knowledgeable sport rider, is holding a monthly series of MotorcycleRiding 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.

The Doc Wong Riding Clinics are now in it's 15th year!

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

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

SKILL LEVEL 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.  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 ofexpertise required. 

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, tanktop, 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 but not required.* You are responsible for your own safety.

WORKSHOP FORMAT: (Each month is a different riding skills topic)

1. Meet at Doc Wong's Chiropractic oiffice in Carlmont Shopping Center at 9 AM. After signing wavers, Doc Wong gives an hour lecture on the day's riding topic. He'll also go over Riding Within Your Abilities, Group Riding, and Road Manners.* You'll be asked to fill out an optional survey for riding feedback and health issues. Then we will be split up into small groups with ride leader volunteers to lead you thru the hills.* 

2. The Ride: 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 theride. As volunteer riders, they are often very willing to help you inany 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'tcontinue until everyone has arrived.

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

Ride Route:* http://tinyurl.com/6gs5yu

From Dr. Wong's office up to Woodside Road, up Kings Mountain Road, down Tunitas Creek Road and a short stop at the San Gregorio Road. Continue on Stage Road to the town of Pescadero to Cloverdale, Gazos Creek Road to Hwy 1. Then down Hwy 1 to Davenport for lunch. After lunch, it's south on Highway 1 to Bonny Doone Road, right on Smith Grade to Empire Grade, down Jamison Creek Road to Boulder Creek, then up Hwy 9 to the corner of Hwy 9 and Skyline at the rest stop 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!

Hi,

I am SO excited to offer this first ever workshop!

Our special guest speaker is a retired Special Operations Intelligence Officer with over 26 years field experience in high-risk, hostile and even behind enemy lines experience. Very few people in the world have extensive knowledge and experience in how to survive in difficult situations.

Ever planning on doing a motorcycle trip into another country? You'll want to know what he has to say to stay safe, recognize and avoid trouble and what would ever be the best
plan of action in case something bad happens.

He's been on every continent with extensive experience in how to first of all, stay out of trouble and if the SHTF, what do you then do. Did you know that if you were ever handcuffed or tied with duct tape that you could easily break out of them without tools? He'll show us how in this workshop!

While there is no charge for this workshop, signup early as seating is limited.

NEW Doc Wong Braking Clinic! Th, May 24 6:30PM

Hi,

I'm sure you're aware how to brake effectively is as important a skill as all of the other skills necessary for smooth, confident and safe riding.  I'm finding that a lot of riders can improve their skills in how and when to apply the brakes.  There is definitely a safety issue with the incorrect use of the brakes.  This causes either increased braking distances and at worst locking up the brakes prematurely, sliding out or crashing.

it's one of those skills that a lot of riders don't think of until the SHTF.  In this very unique clinic I'll be covering key points and techniques that every rider should know such as:  

Emergency Braking, Threshold Braking and Locking up the Front tire (how not to)
Braking at the limits of traction: How best to avoid crashing
Braking and Corner Entry Speed: How to Smoothly and Effectively Transition from one to the other
Critical Dos and Don'ts regarding Braking
Braking While In a Turn
Trail-braking
What Brake To Use: Front vas Rear brakes
Engine Braking
All About ABS
Braking and Downshifting
Downhill Braking

Improving riding confidence comes with knowing, applying and practicing the basic skills of riding.  With improved knowledge and skill anyone can become a smoother and safer rider.  I hope to present this vital topic to you in a way that truly improves your understanding and ability to apply this while riding and braking.

The Doc Wong Riding Clinics are now in it's 18 year with now over 40,000 riders having attended!  Is that cool or what?  Anyway welcome to this new clinic, I hope you find it helpful.

Yours in great health, great riding and great fun!

Hi,

You're invited the next Basic Suspension Part One Workshop!

I'm hyper-excited, this workshop will demystify and really enhance your knowledge of suspension setup. It is geared for those of you who are neophytes in suspension to those of you who want to know more about how set up your bike properly!

One month there was even a guy that flew from Colorado to attend the workshop and flew back the next morning!

What: Basic Suspension Part One
When: June 8, 2012, 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm
Where: Doc Wong's Full Motion Chiropractic Office
          Carlmont Village Shopping Center
          1021 Alameda De Las Pulgas
          Belmont, CA 94002
Cost: $0.00
How to sign up:  just e-mail me at: docwong@aol.com

About the topic, "Basic Suspension Setup": Worksheets have been made up with pertinent data that will be very simple and understandable. He will even have basic terminology defined so that you will know the terms and how they apply to making your bike feel good, bad, bumpy, springy, etc. The workshop will give you a very good understanding of how a suspension works and what you need to do to your bike to improve it's handling characteristics.

Workshop format:  

1.  Basic terms with demonstrations on a sport bike. I'll go over each term one by one and demonstrate them so that you will see them in action.

2.  Adjustments and how they effect the handling of your motorcycle and how you can do them on your bike.

3.  Poor handling characteristics due to "mis-adjustments" and how they can be remedied.

The workshop will be kept simple enough to ensure that when you leave, you'll have a very good understanding of how a suspension works and an idea of how to adjust your own bike. You'll have handouts and worksheets to make notes on too!

Due to the content of the materials presented, parental guidance is suggested as your enhanced understanding of how your suspension works and its subsequent demystification may bring about wide grins!

We do have to limit the number of riders to 40, due to the fact that we want everyone to see how the adjustments are made on the motorcycle.  

Want to use your bike as the demo bike for the evening? E-mail me with the specifics of your bike:  Make, model, year and if it has adjustable front and back preload.

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

Dr. Harry Wong, a prominent Belmont chiropractor and extremely knowledgeable sport rider, is holding a monthly series of MotorcycleRiding 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.

The Doc Wong Riding Clinics are now in it's 15th year!

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

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

SKILL LEVEL 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.  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 ofexpertise required. 

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, tanktop, 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 but not required.* You are responsible for your own safety.

WORKSHOP FORMAT: (Each month is a different riding skills topic)

1. Meet at Doc Wong's Chiropractic oiffice in Carlmont Shopping Center at 9 AM. After signing wavers, Doc Wong gives an hour lecture on the day's riding topic. He'll also go over Riding Within Your Abilities, Group Riding, and Road Manners.* You'll be asked to fill out an optional survey for riding feedback and health issues. Then we will be split up into small groups with ride leader volunteers to lead you thru the hills.* 

2. The Ride: 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 theride. As volunteer riders, they are often very willing to help you inany 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'tcontinue until everyone has arrived.

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

Ride Route:* http://tinyurl.com/6gs5yu

From Dr. Wong's office up to Woodside Road, up Kings Mountain Road, down Tunitas Creek Road and a short stop at the San Gregorio Road. Continue on Stage Road to the town of Pescadero to Cloverdale, Gazos Creek Road to Hwy 1. Then down Hwy 1 to Davenport for lunch. After lunch, it's south on Highway 1 to Bonny Doone Road, right on Smith Grade to Empire Grade, down Jamison Creek Road to Boulder Creek, then up Hwy 9 to the corner of Hwy 9 and Skyline at the rest stop 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!

Hi

This First Aid/CPR Class is CANCELLED. 

Jill Jaehne, our lead instructor has canceled the June 10th First Aid/CPR workshop.  Her husband Gary Jaehne passed away Sunday May 20th.  It was an incredibly sad moment as I arrived at Stanford Hospital when the doctors took me aside to tell me before I went in to see him for the last time.

Thanks for wanting to take the First Aid/CPR class, it may come in handy for another rider someday.

If you knew Gary Jaehne and would like to come to his memorial, it's Sunday June 10th at 12 noon at the beach.  Location to be confirmed.  Then a BBQ at Jill's house.  Motorcycling was both their lives and we're her family..

Hi,

I'm sure you're aware how to brake effectively is as important a skill as all of the other skills necessary for smooth, confident and safe riding.  I'm finding that a lot of riders can improve their skills in how and when to apply the brakes.  There is definitely a safety issue with the incorrect use of the brakes.  This causes either increased braking distances and at worst locking up the brakes prematurely, sliding out or crashing.

it's one of those skills that a lot of riders don't think of until the SHTF.  In this very unique clinic I'll be covering key points and techniques that every rider should know such as:  

Emergency Braking, Threshold Braking and Locking up the Front tire (how not to)
Braking at the limits of traction: How best to avoid crashing
Braking and Corner Entry Speed: How to Smoothly and Effectively Transition from one to the other
Critical Dos and Don'ts regarding Braking
Braking While In a Turn
Trail-braking
What Brake To Use: Front vas Rear brakes
Engine Braking
All About ABS
Braking and Downshifting
Downhill Braking

Improving riding confidence comes with knowing, applying and practicing the basic skills of riding.  With improved knowledge and skill anyone can become a smoother and safer rider.  I hope to present this vital topic to you in a way that truly improves your understanding and ability to apply this while riding and braking.

The Doc Wong Riding Clinics are now in it's 18 year with now over 40,000 riders having attended!  Is that cool or what?  Anyway welcome to this new clinic, I hope you find it helpful.

Yours in great health, great riding and great fun!

Hi,

You're invited to the next:  Basic Suspension Workshop - Part 2

Here's the only catch:  It's limited to 35 riders because we will be taking apart and examining the internals of a set of forks.  Yes, you'll see the innards of the thing and see how it works to gain a deeper understanding of how suspension works.  Those who attended the last Basic Suspension Workshop (Level 1) will get first priority.  

One month there was even a guy that flew from Colorado to attend the workshop and flew back the next morning!

The Suspension Seminar Part 2, should be extraordinarily interesting tonight, I will go through the normal presentation portion of the program and will vary from the previous format by adding a lab where he'll be setting up a folding card table to perform a complete "piece by piece" dissection process on a full front fork assembly, and a rear shock assembly, while the students observe.  We'll be identifying the function of each individual item, as it's removed.  Should be a very educational experience, and rare opportunity for the riders in attendance.  I'm excited about implementing this new "twist" on the suspension training program!

I'm very pleased with the materials that I've put together so far, as I believe they will be quite effective at directly addressing the questions and issues that most motorcyclists have regarding the 'black magic' of setting up their compression and rebound adjustments, as well as other related aspects of suspension tuning.

Having attended Suspension Seminar Part 1 is not a prerequisite for coming to Part 2.

You'll also get a working knowledge of how compression and rebound works on a bike by actually adjusting the suspension.

"The format for The "PART 2" seminar looks like this:
******************************************************
1. Spring "Preload": "Setting proper "SAG", a quick review"
2. Compression & Rebound : "Solving the mystery"
3. Dissembling a set of forks and examining it's internals
4. Advanced suspension tuning: "Going beyond the factory": Wheelbase, Fork tube height. Fork oil level/viscosity
5. Troubleshooting common bike handling complaints (student contribution)
6. Cartridge fork dissembly
7. Final Question & Answer session

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

Dr. Harry Wong, a prominent Belmont chiropractor and extremely knowledgeable sport rider, is holding a monthly series of MotorcycleRiding 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.

The Doc Wong Riding Clinics are now in it's 15th year!

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

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

SKILL LEVEL 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.  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 ofexpertise required. 

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, tanktop, 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 but not required.* You are responsible for your own safety.

WORKSHOP FORMAT: (Each month is a different riding skills topic)

1. Meet at Doc Wong's Chiropractic oiffice in Carlmont Shopping Center at 9 AM. After signing wavers, Doc Wong gives an hour lecture on the day's riding topic. He'll also go over Riding Within Your Abilities, Group Riding, and Road Manners.* You'll be asked to fill out an optional survey for riding feedback and health issues. Then we will be split up into small groups with ride leader volunteers to lead you thru the hills.* 

2. The Ride: 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 theride. As volunteer riders, they are often very willing to help you inany 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'tcontinue until everyone has arrived.

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

Ride Route:* http://tinyurl.com/6gs5yu

From Dr. Wong's office up to Woodside Road, up Kings Mountain Road, down Tunitas Creek Road and a short stop at the San Gregorio Road. Continue on Stage Road to the town of Pescadero to Cloverdale, Gazos Creek Road to Hwy 1. Then down Hwy 1 to Davenport for lunch. After lunch, it's south on Highway 1 to Bonny Doone Road, right on Smith Grade to Empire Grade, down Jamison Creek Road to Boulder Creek, then up Hwy 9 to the corner of Hwy 9 and Skyline at the rest stop 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!

Hi,

I am SO excited to offer this special workshop!

Our special guest speaker is a retired Special Operations Intelligence Officer with over 26 years field experience in high-risk, hostile and even behind enemy lines experience. Very few people in the world have extensive knowledge and experience in how to survive in difficult situations.

Ever planning on doing a motorcycle trip into another country? You'll want to know what he has to say to stay safe, recognize and avoid trouble and what would ever be the best
plan of action in case something bad happens.

He's been on every continent with extensive experience in how to first of all, stay out of trouble and if the SHTF, what do you then do. Did you know that if you were ever handcuffed or tied with duct tape that you could easily break out of them without tools? He'll show us how in this workshop!

While there is no charge for this workshop, signup early as seating is limited.

Hi,

I'm sure you're aware how to brake effectively is as important a skill as all of the other skills necessary for smooth, confident and safe riding.  I'm finding that a lot of riders can improve their skills in how and when to apply the brakes.  There is definitely a safety issue with the incorrect use of the brakes.  This causes either increased braking distances and at worst locking up the brakes prematurely, sliding out or crashing.

It's one of those skills that a lot of riders don't think of until the SHTF.  In this very unique clinic I'll be covering key points and techniques that every rider should know such as:  

Emergency Braking, Threshold Braking and Locking up the Front tire (how not to)
Braking at the limits of traction: How best to avoid crashing
Braking and Corner Entry Speed: How to Smoothly and Effectively Transition from one to the other
Critical Dos and Don'ts regarding Braking
Braking While In a Turn
Trail-braking
What Brake To Use: Front vas Rear brakes
Engine Braking
All About ABS
Braking and Downshifting
Downhill Braking

Improving riding confidence comes with knowing, applying and practicing the basic skills of riding.  With improved knowledge and skill anyone can become a smoother and safer rider.  I hope to present this vital topic to you in a way that truly improves your understanding and ability to apply this while riding and braking.

The Doc Wong Riding Clinics are now in it's 18 year with now over 40,000 riders having attended!  Is that cool or what?  Anyway welcome to this new clinic, I hope you find it helpful.

Yours in great health, great riding and great fun!

Hi,

Most of us have been there....on a ride and someone goes down. You see
that cloud of dust or the rider is in front of you and you get that
sinking, oh s....t feeling and hope it's not too bad.

But what if the injuries are bad? Are you prepared to assist? Will you do
the right thing? It can mean the difference between life and death, minor
or major injuries. There's an even more important procedure than tending
to the fallen rider, what's that?

Learn what to do and not do when the unexpected happens. What's the very
first thing you must do even before attending to the fallen rider. How do
you handle road rash, fractures, and bleeding. When should you remove the
helmet? What about spinal injuries, shock and much more.

This is a power packed workshop, hands on, First Aid and CPR class geared
for you. So you can be ready for the worst, but of course hope for the best!

We'll even go over what you should have in your First Aid kits!

This 5 hour First Aid / CPR course which will help you in handling the most
common First Aid / CPR situations that you encounter as a motorcyclist!

To top it off, you'll get a CPR certification (2 year, Adult & Pediatric, American Heart Assn.) and first aid certification!

If you are an EMT, I need volunteer instructors to help out! The number of
volunteers will determine the number of students I can have.

So e-mail me if you're an EMT (Emergency Medical Technician).

What: Doc Wong Certified First Aid/CPR for Motorcyclists!
When: Sunday, Sept 30, 2012
Time: 9am to 3pm
Where: Doc Wong's office at 1021 Alameda de las Pulgas, Belmont, CA 94002
Cost: $40 (includes CPR and first aid certification)
How to sign up: e-mail docwong@aol.com.  Please include name and telephone number.

Proceeds go to the JW House at Kaiser Hospital in Santa Clara. JW House keeps families together during medical crisis by offering a welcoming home just steps away from the hospital, providing a caring and compassionate environment that inspires hope.
http://www.jwhouse.org/ (http://www.jwhouse.org/)

We had this class last year which was unbelieveable! It was the BEST First
Aid class I've ever been to.

They really geared the class for motorcyclists and motorcycling situations.
It was so close to being a certified class that this year I just added
another hour and you get the certification too!

Hi,

You're invited the next Basic Suspension Part One Workshop!

I'm hyper-excited, this workshop will demystify and really enhance your knowledge of suspension setup. It is geared for those of you who are neophytes in suspension to those of you who want to know more about how set up your bike properly!

One month there was even a guy that flew from Colorado to attend the workshop and flew back the next morning!

What: Basic Suspension Part One
When: August 3, 2012, 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm
Where: Doc Wong's Full Motion Chiropractic Office
          Carlmont Village Shopping Center
          1021 Alameda De Las Pulgas
          Belmont, CA 94002
Cost: $0.00
How to sign up:  just e-mail me at: docwong@aol.com

About the topic, "Basic Suspension Setup": Worksheets have been made up with pertinent data that will be very simple and understandable. He will even have basic terminology defined so that you will know the terms and how they apply to making your bike feel good, bad, bumpy, springy, etc. The workshop will give you a very good understanding of how a suspension works and what you need to do to your bike to improve it's handling characteristics.

Workshop format:  

1.  Basic terms with demonstrations on a sport bike. I'll go over each term one by one and demonstrate them so that you will see them in action.

2.  Adjustments and how they effect the handling of your motorcycle and how you can do them on your bike.

3.  Poor handling characteristics due to "mis-adjustments" and how they can be remedied.

The workshop will be kept simple enough to ensure that when you leave, you'll have a very good understanding of how a suspension works and an idea of how to adjust your own bike. You'll have handouts and worksheets to make notes on too!

Due to the content of the materials presented, parental guidance is suggested as your enhanced understanding of how your suspension works and its subsequent demystification may bring about wide grins!

We do have to limit the number of riders to 40, due to the fact that we want everyone to see how the adjustments are made on the motorcycle.  

Want to use your bike as the demo bike for the evening? E-mail me with the specifics of your bike:  Make, model, year and if it has adjustable front and back preload.

ride comfortably.

Riding Positions will include optimal positions for street, sport, *
toruing, racing and dirt or dual sport riding. *Which positions *
produce optimum performance and which get riders into trouble along *
with which causes the most pain and what to do about it. *I'll *
demonstate on a couple of very different bikes, a sport bike and an *
upright dual sport bike. *That way I can demonstrate the range of *
riding positions and the range of ergonomic adjustments you can do to *
your bike. Find out how certain riding styles and poor bike setup can *
be hazardous and how to solve them. The end result is you being more *
comfortable on your bike with less fatigue and having more fun!

bike to your body and style of riding. The ergonomics of different *
bike types and body types will be addressed and participants will have *

Hi,

You're invited to the next:  Basic Suspension Workshop - Part 2

Here's the only catch:  It's limited to 35 riders because we will be taking apart and examining the internals of a set of forks.  Yes, you'll see the innards of the thing and see how it works to gain a deeper understanding of how suspension works.  Those who attended the last Basic Suspension Workshop (Level 1) will get first priority.  

One month there was even a guy that flew from Colorado to attend the workshop and flew back the next morning!

The Suspension Seminar Part 2, should be extraordinarily interesting tonight, I will go through the normal presentation portion of the program and will vary from the previous format by adding a lab where he'll be setting up a folding card table to perform a complete "piece by piece" dissection process on a full front fork assembly, and a rear shock assembly, while the students observe.  We'll be identifying the function of each individual item, as it's removed.  Should be a very educational experience, and rare opportunity for the riders in attendance.  I'm excited about implementing this new "twist" on the suspension training program!

I'm very pleased with the materials that I've put together so far, as I believe they will be quite effective at directly addressing the questions and issues that most motorcyclists have regarding the 'black magic' of setting up their compression and rebound adjustments, as well as other related aspects of suspension tuning.

Having attended Suspension Seminar Part 1 is not a prerequisite for coming to Part 2.

You'll also get a working knowledge of how compression and rebound works on a bike by actually adjusting the suspension.

"The format for The "PART 2" seminar looks like this:
******************************************************
1. Spring "Preload": "Setting proper "SAG", a quick review"
2. Compression & Rebound : "Solving the mystery"
3. Dissembling a set of forks and examining it's internals
4. Advanced suspension tuning: "Going beyond the factory": Wheelbase, Fork tube height. Fork oil level/viscosity
5. Troubleshooting common bike handling complaints (student contribution)
6. Cartridge fork dissembly
7. Final Question & Answer session

Hi,

I'm sure you're aware how to brake effectively is as important a skill as all of the other skills necessary for smooth, confident and safe riding.  I'm finding that a lot of riders can improve their skills in how and when to apply the brakes.  There is definitely a safety issue with the incorrect use of the brakes.  This causes either increased braking distances and at worst locking up the brakes prematurely, sliding out or crashing.

It's one of those skills that a lot of riders don't think of until the SHTF.  In this very unique clinic I'll be covering key points and techniques that every rider should know such as:  

Emergency Braking, Threshold Braking and Locking up the Front tire (how not to)
Braking at the limits of traction: How best to avoid crashing
Braking and Corner Entry Speed: How to Smoothly and Effectively Transition from one to the other
Critical Dos and Don'ts regarding Braking
Braking While In a Turn
Trail-braking
What Brake To Use: Front vas Rear brakes
Engine Braking
All About ABS
Braking and Downshifting
Downhill Braking

Improving riding confidence comes with knowing, applying and practicing the basic skills of riding.  With improved knowledge and skill anyone can become a smoother and safer rider.  I hope to present this vital topic to you in a way that truly improves your understanding and ability to apply this while riding and braking.

The Doc Wong Riding Clinics are now in it's 18 year with now over 40,000 riders having attended!  Is that cool or what?  Anyway welcome to this new clinic, I hope you find it helpful.

Yours in great health, great riding and great fun!

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

Dr. Harry Wong, a prominent Belmont chiropractor and extremely knowledgeable sport rider, is holding a monthly series of MotorcycleRiding 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.

The Doc Wong Riding Clinics are now in it's 15th year!

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

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

SKILL LEVEL 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.  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 ofexpertise required. 

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, tanktop, 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 but not required.* You are responsible for your own safety.

WORKSHOP FORMAT: (Each month is a different riding skills topic)

1. Meet at Doc Wong's Chiropractic oiffice in Carlmont Shopping Center at 9 AM. After signing wavers, Doc Wong gives an hour lecture on the day's riding topic. He'll also go over Riding Within Your Abilities, Group Riding, and Road Manners.* You'll be asked to fill out an optional survey for riding feedback and health issues. Then we will be split up into small groups with ride leader volunteers to lead you thru the hills.* 

2. The Ride: 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 theride. As volunteer riders, they are often very willing to help you inany 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'tcontinue until everyone has arrived.

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

Ride Route:* http://tinyurl.com/6gs5yu

From Dr. Wong's office up to Woodside Road, up Kings Mountain Road, down Tunitas Creek Road and a short stop at the San Gregorio Road. Continue on Stage Road to the town of Pescadero to Cloverdale, Gazos Creek Road to Hwy 1. Then down Hwy 1 to Davenport for lunch. After lunch, it's south on Highway 1 to Bonny Doone Road, right on Smith Grade to Empire Grade, down Jamison Creek Road to Boulder Creek, then up Hwy 9 to the corner of Hwy 9 and Skyline at the rest stop 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!

toruing, racing and dirt or dual sport riding. *Which positions *
produce optimum performance and which get riders into trouble along *

upright dual sport bike. *That way I can demonstrate the range of *
riding positions and the range of ergonomic adjustments you can do to *

Hi,

You're invited the next Basic Suspension Part One Workshop!

I'm hyper-excited, this workshop will demystify and really enhance your knowledge of suspension setup. It is geared for those of you who are neophytes in suspension to those of you who want to know more about how set up your bike properly!

One month there was even a guy that flew from Colorado to attend the workshop and flew back the next morning!

What: Basic Suspension Part One
When: Sept 28, 2012, 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm
Where: Doc Wong's Full Motion Chiropractic Office
          Carlmont Village Shopping Center
          1021 Alameda De Las Pulgas
          Belmont, CA 94002
Cost: $0.00
How to sign up:  just e-mail me at: docwong@aol.com

About the topic, "Basic Suspension Setup": Worksheets have been made up with pertinent data that will be very simple and understandable. He will even have basic terminology defined so that you will know the terms and how they apply to making your bike feel good, bad, bumpy, springy, etc. The workshop will give you a very good understanding of how a suspension works and what you need to do to your bike to improve it's handling characteristics.

Workshop format:  

1.  Basic terms with demonstrations on a sport bike. I'll go over each term one by one and demonstrate them so that you will see them in action.

2.  Adjustments and how they effect the handling of your motorcycle and how you can do them on your bike.

3.  Poor handling characteristics due to "mis-adjustments" and how they can be remedied.

The workshop will be kept simple enough to ensure that when you leave, you'll have a very good understanding of how a suspension works and an idea of how to adjust your own bike. You'll have handouts and worksheets to make notes on too!

Due to the content of the materials presented, parental guidance is suggested as your enhanced understanding of how your suspension works and its subsequent demystification may bring about wide grins!

We do have to limit the number of riders to 40, due to the fact that we want everyone to see how the adjustments are made on the motorcycle.  

Want to use your bike as the demo bike for the evening? E-mail me with the specifics of your bike:  Make, model, year and if it has adjustable front and back preload.

Sunday Sept 30, 2012 SPECIAL Keith Code-Doc Wong Riding Clinic!!

(http://www.freeimagehosting.net/t/87895.jpg) (http://www.freeimagehosting.net/87895)

Hi, I'm super excited!

So September is a very special month indeed!!  To help commemorate the 19th year of the Doc Wong Riding Clinics.....

It's a done deal...Keith Code (of the California Superbike Schools)  is confirmed!!! E-mail me at Docwong@aol.com NOW! to get on the list.

The number of riders IS limited. You may or may not know, but the Riding Clinic with Keith Code is the only one where reservations ARE REQUIRED.  

To cover costs of renting the riding facility where we will do the riding drills coached by Keith Code and his instructors, insurance, etc, a $20 fee will be charged that you can pay at the door.

I'll also need help big time, so let me know if you can help out that day. I need people to lead groups, direct parking traffic, and do registration.

Doc Wong Riding Clinic - Featuring Keith Code!
When: Sunday September 30, 2012 at 9 AM. We'll be done in the early afternoon.
Where: We will meet up at an undisclosed location.

Keith will first give a very special lecture on keys to improving your riding skill, gaining cornering confidence like never before!

Then you will be drilled and coached by one of Keith Code's highly skilled and trained instructors.  The drill you will be doing is a "key" drill! From what I understand, there are only a hand-full of riders that have passed this drill to perfection!  Yes, you will be coached by Keith Code and his highly trained instructors.

You will then have the opportunity to practice this technique and getting coached by Keith himself! Last time he did this it was great! My riding improved markedly from the Keith's personal coaching.

Then we will continue our ride (route will not be the same route as before)
and have lunch (destination not disclosed at this time).

It's hard to believe but true, let me reiterate:

Keith Code lectures on several vital and key factors in improving your riding and improving your cornering confidence.
We go to an undisclosed destination to have him and his instructors coach you in a special drill to improve your riding.
Then he coaches us on it so that we get it.
We go to lunch and continue the ride!

About Keith Code:  He is the premiere riding coach, internationally renowned!

He began coaching road racing in 1976. Since that time he has isolated and perfected techniques that are in common use today in motorcycling. He has instructed more riders at more tracks in more countries than anyone else in the world. Keith has been the coach for every American Superbike Champion from 1983 through 1992. He is the author of several well regarded books and tapes on motorcycle riding techniques. Legendary riders such as Wayne Rainey, Doug Chandler, Eddie Lawson and others have considered Code's instruction instrumental in the success of their careers!

There's no doubt in my mind and many others that Code is THE man when it comes to the techniques and art of motorcycling!

He just released his new DVD, Twist of the Wrist 2 and it's a phenomenal work of art and riding instruction.  It's a must have.

All for free???!!! Well....almost. I need $20 per person to pay for costs. Suffice to say Keith belives in what we are doing and the purposes of the riding clinics. Read on below on what I need from you:

1. Learn a lot, increase your skills, ride better and safer.
2. Encourage your friends on the ideas I present in the Riding Clinics
about:
a. Know the symptoms of riding over your skill level.
b. Improve relations with neighbors and other users of the road
c. Learn how to ride in groups safer.

Yours in great health, great riding and great fun!

efficiency and comfort of riding your motorcycle in all conditions.

To achieve this, I'll be covering different riding styles or positions *
on different bikes in differing conditons along with what needs to be *
changed to ergonomically fit your bike to you. *Also, I'll cover the *
most common neck, back and wrist problems I see and what you can do to *
ride comfortably.

Riding Positions will include optimal positions for street, sport, *
toruing, racing and dirt or dual sport riding. *Which positions *
produce optimum performance and which get riders into trouble along *
with which causes the most pain and what to do about it. *I'll *
demonstate on a couple of very different bikes, a sport bike and an *
upright dual sport bike. *That way I can demonstrate the range of *
riding positions and the range of ergonomic adjustments you can do to *
your bike. Find out how certain riding styles and poor bike setup can *
be hazardous and how to solve them. The end result is you being more *
comfortable on your bike with less fatigue and having more fun!

The ergonomics part of this workshop will cover how to adjust your *
bike to your body and style of riding. The ergonomics of different *
bike types and body types will be addressed and participants will have *
a working knowledge of what do do with their bikes *
adjustments.Optimize your bike for your riding style. *Adjusting *
levers, foot controls, handlber bar placements

I'll also cover exercises and stretches for you neck, back and wrists.

After the talk and demonstrations, etc we'll go outside where *
you'll get on your bike and I'll coach you on body position and make *
suggestions on the ergonomics of your motorcycle.

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

Dr. Harry Wong, a prominent Belmont chiropractor and extremely knowledgeable sport rider, is holding a monthly series of MotorcycleRiding 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.

The Doc Wong Riding Clinics are now in it's 15th year!

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

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

SKILL LEVEL 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.  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 ofexpertise required. 

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, tanktop, 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 but not required.* You are responsible for your own safety.

WORKSHOP FORMAT: (Each month is a different riding skills topic)

1. Meet at Doc Wong's Chiropractic oiffice in Carlmont Shopping Center at 9 AM. After signing wavers, Doc Wong gives an hour lecture on the day's riding topic. He'll also go over Riding Within Your Abilities, Group Riding, and Road Manners.* You'll be asked to fill out an optional survey for riding feedback and health issues. Then we will be split up into small groups with ride leader volunteers to lead you thru the hills.* 

2. The Ride: 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 theride. As volunteer riders, they are often very willing to help you inany 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'tcontinue until everyone has arrived.

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

Ride Route:* http://tinyurl.com/6gs5yu

From Dr. Wong's office up to Woodside Road, up Kings Mountain Road, down Tunitas Creek Road and a short stop at the San Gregorio Road. Continue on Stage Road to the town of Pescadero to Cloverdale, Gazos Creek Road to Hwy 1. Then down Hwy 1 to Davenport for lunch. After lunch, it's south on Highway 1 to Bonny Doone Road, right on Smith Grade to Empire Grade, down Jamison Creek Road to Boulder Creek, then up Hwy 9 to the corner of Hwy 9 and Skyline at the rest stop 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!

Sunday Sept 30, 2012 SPECIAL Keith Code-Doc Wong Riding Clinic!!

(http://www.freeimagehosting.net/t/87895.jpg) (http://www.freeimagehosting.net/87895)

Hi, I'm super excited!

So September is a very special month indeed!!  To help commemorate the 19th year of the Doc Wong Riding Clinics.....

It's a done deal...Keith Code (of the California Superbike Schools) is confirmed!!! E-mail me at Docwong@aol.com NOW! to get on the list.

The number of riders IS limited. You may or may not know, but the Riding Clinic with Keith Code is the only one where reservations ARE REQUIRED.  This event is in two parts, with Keith giving his talk first, then riders that got on the list for the second part will be coached through a special riding drill to improve their riding.

The TALK part is still open, but the DRILLS part of the day is full.  To cover costs of renting the riding facility where we will do the event (Talk and Drills coached by Keith Code and his instructors, insurance, etc.) a $10 fee will be charged that you can pay at the door, for the TALK part only.

The DRILLS part, is full and there's a waiting list.  You're on the waiting list for the drills, if you get on that list there's another $10 charge to cover that.

I'll also need help big time, so let me know if you can help out that day. I need people to lead groups, direct parking traffic, and do registration.

Doc Wong Riding Clinic - Featuring Keith Code!
When: Sunday September 30, 2012 at 9 AM. We'll be done in the early afternoon.
Where: We will meet up at an undisclosed location.

Keith will first give a very special lecture on keys to improving your riding skill, gaining cornering confidence like never before!

Then you will be drilled and coached by one of Keith Code's highly skilled and trained instructors.  The drill you will be doing is a "key" drill! From what I understand, there are only a hand-full of riders that have passed this drill to perfection! 
You will then have the opportunity to practice this technique and getting the coaching! Last time he did this it was great! My riding improved markedly from the Keith's personal coaching.

Then we will continue our ride (route will not be the same route as before)
and have lunch (destination not disclosed at this time).

It's hard to believe but true, let me reiterate:

Keith Code lectures on several vital and key factors in improving your riding and improving your cornering confidence.
We go to an undisclosed destination to have him and his instructors coach you in a special drill to improve your riding.
Then he coaches us on it so that we get it.
We go to lunch and continue the ride!

About Keith Code:  He is the premiere riding coach, internationally renowned!

He began coaching road racing in 1976. Since that time he has isolated and perfected techniques that are in common use today in motorcycling. He has instructed more riders at more tracks in more countries than anyone else in the world. Keith has been the coach for every American Superbike Champion from 1983 through 1992. He is the author of several well regarded books and tapes on motorcycle riding techniques. Legendary riders such as Wayne Rainey, Doug Chandler, Eddie Lawson and others have considered Code's instruction instrumental in the success of their careers!

There's no doubt in my mind and many others that Code is THE man when it comes to the techniques and art of motorcycling!

He just released his new DVD, Twist of the Wrist 2 and it's a phenomenal work of art and riding instruction.  It's a must have.

All for free???!!! Well....almost. I need $20 ($10 if you're only doing the talk part) per person to pay for costs. Suffice to say Keith belives in what we are doing and the purposes of the riding clinics. Read on below on what I need from you:

1. Learn a lot, increase your skills, ride better and safer.
2. Encourage your friends on the ideas I present in the Riding Clinics
about:
a. Know the symptoms of riding over your skill level.
b. Improve relations with neighbors and other users of the road
c. Learn how to ride in groups safer.

Yours in great health, great riding and great fun!

plan of action in case something bad happens.

He's been on every continent with extensive experience in how to first of all, stay out of trouble and if the SHTF, what do you then do. Did you know that if you were ever handcuffed or tied with duct tape that you could easily break out of them without tools? He'll show us how in this workshop!

Hi,

You're invited to the next:  Basic Suspension Workshop - Part 2

Here's the only catch:  It's limited to 35 riders because we will be taking apart and examining the internals of a set of forks.  Yes, you'll see the innards of the thing and see how it works to gain a deeper understanding of how suspension works.  Those who attended the last Basic Suspension Workshop (Level 1) will get first priority.  

One month there was even a guy that flew from Colorado to attend the workshop and flew back the next morning!

The Suspension Seminar Part 2, should be extraordinarily interesting tonight, I will go through the normal presentation portion of the program and will vary from the previous format by adding a lab where he'll be setting up a folding card table to perform a complete "piece by piece" dissection process on a full front fork assembly, and a rear shock assembly, while the students observe.  We'll be identifying the function of each individual item, as it's removed.  Should be a very educational experience, and rare opportunity for the riders in attendance.  I'm excited about implementing this new "twist" on the suspension training program!

I'm very pleased with the materials that I've put together so far, as I believe they will be quite effective at directly addressing the questions and issues that most motorcyclists have regarding the 'black magic' of setting up their compression and rebound adjustments, as well as other related aspects of suspension tuning.

Having attended Suspension Seminar Part 1 is not a prerequisite for coming to Part 2.

You'll also get a working knowledge of how compression and rebound works on a bike by actually adjusting the suspension.

"The format for The "PART 2" seminar looks like this:
******************************************************
1. Spring "Preload": "Setting proper "SAG", a quick review"
2. Compression & Rebound : "Solving the mystery"
3. Dissembling a set of forks and examining it's internals
4. Advanced suspension tuning: "Going beyond the factory": Wheelbase, Fork tube height. Fork oil level/viscosity
5. Troubleshooting common bike handling complaints (student contribution)
6. Cartridge fork dissembly
7. Final Question & Answer session

Doc Wong Basic Suspension Workshop Part 1--Nov 9 Fri Night!

(http://www.freeimagehosting.net/t/87895.jpg) (http://www.freeimagehosting.net/87895)

Hi,

You're invited the next Basic Suspension Part One Workshop!

I'm hyper-excited, this workshop will demystify and really enhance your knowledge of suspension setup. It is geared for those of you who are neophytes in suspension to those of you who want to know more about how set up your bike properly!

About the topic, "Basic Suspension Setup": Worksheets have been made up with pertinent data that will be very simple and understandable. He will even have basic terminology defined so that you will know the terms and how they apply to making your bike feel good, bad, bumpy, springy, etc. The workshop will give you a very good understanding of how a suspension works and what you need to do to your bike to improve it's handling characteristics.

Workshop format:  

1.  Basic terms with demonstrations on a sport bike. I'll go over each term one by one and demonstrate them so that you will see them in action.

2.  Adjustments and how they effect the handling of your motorcycle and how you can do them on your bike.

3.  Poor handling characteristics due to "mis-adjustments" and how they can be remedied.

The workshop will be kept simple enough to ensure that when you leave, you'll have a very good understanding of how a suspension works and an idea of how to adjust your own bike. You'll have handouts and worksheets to make notes on too!

Due to the content of the materials presented, parental guidance is suggested as your enhanced understanding of how your suspension works and its subsequent demystification may bring about wide grins!

We do have to limit the number of riders to 40, due to the fact that we want everyone to see how the adjustments are made on the motorcycle.

NEW Doc Wong Braking Confidence & Skills Workshop! Th, Dec 6, 6:30PM

(http://www.freeimagehosting.net/t/87895.jpg) (http://www.freeimagehosting.net/87895)

Hi,

I'm sure you're aware how to brake effectively is as important a skill as all of the other skills necessary for smooth, confident and safe riding.  I'm finding that a lot of riders can improve their skills in how and when to apply the brakes.  There is definitely a safety issue with the incorrect use of the brakes.  This causes either increased braking distances and at worst locking up the brakes prematurely, sliding out or crashing.

It's one of those skills that a lot of riders don't think of until the SHTF.  In this very unique clinic I'll be covering key points and techniques that every rider should know such as:  

Emergency Braking, Threshold Braking and Locking up the Front tire (how not to)
Braking at the limits of traction: How best to avoid crashing
Braking and Corner Entry Speed: How to Smoothly and Effectively Transition from one to the other
Critical Dos and Don'ts regarding Braking
Braking While In a Turn
Trail-braking
What Brake To Use: Front vas Rear brakes
Engine Braking
All About ABS
Braking and Downshifting
Downhill Braking

Improving riding confidence comes with knowing, applying and practicing the basic skills of riding.  With improved knowledge and skill anyone can become a smoother and safer rider.  I hope to present this vital topic to you in a way that truly improves your understanding and ability to apply this while riding and braking.

The Doc Wong Riding Clinics are now in it's 18 year with now over 40,000 riders having attended!  Is that cool or what?  Anyway welcome to this new clinic, I hope you find it helpful.

Yours in great health, great riding and great fun!

This workshop is designed to help you make the necessary adjustments *

efficiency and comfort of riding your motorcycle in all conditions.

To achieve this, I'll be covering different riding styles or positions *
on different bikes in differing conditons along with what needs to be *
changed to ergonomically fit your bike to you. *Also, I'll cover the *
most common neck, back and wrist problems I see and what you can do to *
ride comfortably.

Riding Positions will include optimal positions for street, sport, *
toruing, racing and dirt or dual sport riding. *Which positions *
produce optimum performance and which get riders into trouble along *
with which causes the most pain and what to do about it. *I'll *
demonstate on a couple of very different bikes, a sport bike and an *
upright dual sport bike. *That way I can demonstrate the range of *
riding positions and the range of ergonomic adjustments you can do to *
your bike. Find out how certain riding styles and poor bike setup can *
be hazardous and how to solve them. The end result is you being more *
comfortable on your bike with less fatigue and having more fun!

The ergonomics part of this workshop will cover how to adjust your *
bike to your body and style of riding. The ergonomics of different *
bike types and body types will be addressed and participants will have *

Place: Full Motion Chiropractic http://tinyurl.com/6vp36k3

Hi,

You're invited to the next:  Basic Suspension Workshop - Part 2

Here's the only catch:  It's limited to 35 riders because we will be taking apart and examining the internals of a set of forks.  Yes, you'll see the innards of the thing and see how it works to gain a deeper understanding of how suspension works.  Those who attended the last Basic Suspension Workshop (Level 1) will get first priority.  

One month there was even a guy that flew from Colorado to attend the workshop and flew back the next morning!

The Suspension Seminar Part 2, should be extraordinarily interesting tonight, I will go through the normal presentation portion of the program and will vary from the previous format by adding a lab where he'll be setting up a folding card table to perform a complete "piece by piece" dissection process on a full front fork assembly, and a rear shock assembly, while the students observe.  We'll be identifying the function of each individual item, as it's removed.  Should be a very educational experience, and rare opportunity for the riders in attendance.  I'm excited about implementing this new "twist" on the suspension training program!

I'm very pleased with the materials that I've put together so far, as I believe they will be quite effective at directly addressing the questions and issues that most motorcyclists have regarding the 'black magic' of setting up their compression and rebound adjustments, as well as other related aspects of suspension tuning.

Having attended Suspension Seminar Part 1 is not a prerequisite for coming to Part 2.

You'll also get a working knowledge of how compression and rebound works on a bike by actually adjusting the suspension.

"The format for The "PART 2" seminar looks like this:
******************************************************
1. Spring "Preload": "Setting proper "SAG", a quick review"
2. Compression & Rebound : "Solving the mystery"
3. Dissembling a set of forks and examining it's internals
4. Advanced suspension tuning: "Going beyond the factory": Wheelbase, Fork tube height. Fork oil level/viscosity
5. Troubleshooting common bike handling complaints (student contribution)
6. Cartridge fork dissembly
7. Final Question & Answer session

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

Dr. Harry Wong, a prominent Belmont chiropractor and extremely knowledgeable sport rider, is holding a monthly series of MotorcycleRiding 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.

The Doc Wong Riding Clinics are now in it's 15th year!

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

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

SKILL LEVEL 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.  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 ofexpertise required. 

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, tanktop, 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 but not required.* You are responsible for your own safety.

WORKSHOP FORMAT: (Each month is a different riding skills topic)

1. Meet at Doc Wong's Chiropractic oiffice in Carlmont Shopping Center at 9 AM. After signing wavers, Doc Wong gives an hour lecture on the day's riding topic. He'll also go over Riding Within Your Abilities, Group Riding, and Road Manners.* You'll be asked to fill out an optional survey for riding feedback and health issues. Then we will be split up into small groups with ride leader volunteers to lead you thru the hills.* 

2. The Ride: 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 theride. As volunteer riders, they are often very willing to help you inany 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'tcontinue until everyone has arrived.

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

Ride Route:* http://tinyurl.com/6gs5yu

From Dr. Wong's office up to Woodside Road, up Kings Mountain Road, down Tunitas Creek Road and a short stop at the San Gregorio Road. Continue on Stage Road to the town of Pescadero to Cloverdale, Gazos Creek Road to Hwy 1. Then down Hwy 1 to Davenport for lunch. After lunch, it's south on Highway 1 to Bonny Doone Road, right on Smith Grade to Empire Grade, down Jamison Creek Road to Boulder Creek, then up Hwy 9 to the corner of Hwy 9 and Skyline at the rest stop 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!

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

Dr. Harry Wong, a prominent Belmont chiropractor and extremely knowledgeable sport rider, is holding a monthly series of MotorcycleRiding 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.

The Doc Wong Riding Clinics are now in it's 15th year!

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

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

SKILL LEVEL 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.  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 ofexpertise required. 

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, tanktop, 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 but not required.* You are responsible for your own safety.

WORKSHOP FORMAT: (Each month is a different riding skills topic)

1. Meet at Doc Wong's Chiropractic oiffice in Carlmont Shopping Center at 9 AM. After signing wavers, Doc Wong gives an hour lecture on the day's riding topic. He'll also go over Riding Within Your Abilities, Group Riding, and Road Manners.* You'll be asked to fill out an optional survey for riding feedback and health issues. Then we will be split up into small groups with ride leader volunteers to lead you thru the hills.* 

2. The Ride: 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 theride. As volunteer riders, they are often very willing to help you inany 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'tcontinue until everyone has arrived.

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

Ride Route:* http://tinyurl.com/6gs5yu

From Dr. Wong's office up to Woodside Road, up Kings Mountain Road, down Tunitas Creek Road and a short stop at the San Gregorio Road. Continue on Stage Road to the town of Pescadero to Cloverdale, Gazos Creek Road to Hwy 1. Then down Hwy 1 to Davenport for lunch. After lunch, it's south on Highway 1 to Bonny Doone Road, right on Smith Grade to Empire Grade, down Jamison Creek Road to Boulder Creek, then up Hwy 9 to the corner of Hwy 9 and Skyline at the rest stop 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!

Doc Wong Certified First Aid/CPR for Motorcyclists!! Sun, Mar 10, 2013

(http://www.freeimagehosting.net/t/87895.jpg) (http://www.freeimagehosting.net/87895)

Hi,

Most of us have been there....on a ride and someone goes down. You see
that cloud of dust or the rider is in front of you and you get that
sinking, oh s....t feeling and hope it's not too bad.

But what if the injuries are bad? Are you prepared to assist? Will you do
the right thing? It can mean the difference between life and death, minor
or major injuries. There's an even more important procedure than tending
to the fallen rider, what's that?

Learn what to do and not do when the unexpected happens. What's the very
first thing you must do even before attending to the fallen rider. How do
you handle road rash, fractures, and bleeding. When should you remove the
helmet? What about spinal injuries, shock and much more.

This is a power packed workshop, hands on, First Aid and CPR class geared
for you. So you can be ready for the worst, but of course hope for the best!

We'll even go over what you should have in your First Aid kits!

This 5 hour First Aid / CPR course which will help you in handling the most
common First Aid / CPR situations that you encounter as a motorcyclist!

To top it off, you'll get a CPR certification (2 year, Adult & Pediatric, American Heart Assn.) and first aid certification!

If you are an EMT, I need volunteer instructors to help out! The number of
volunteers will determine the number of students I can have.

So e-mail me if you're an EMT (Emergency Medical Technician).

What: Doc Wong Certified First Aid/CPR for Motorcyclists!
When: Sunday, March 10, 2013
Time: 9am to 3pm
Where: Doc Wong's office at 1021 Alameda de las Pulgas, Belmont, CA 94002
Cost: $40 (includes CPR and first aid certification)
How to sign up: e-mail docwong@aol.com.  Please include name and telephone number.

Proceeds go to the JW House at Kaiser Hospital in Santa Clara. JW House keeps families together during medical crisis by offering a welcoming home just steps away from the hospital, providing a caring and compassionate environment that inspires hope.
http://www.jwhouse.org/ (http://www.jwhouse.org/)

This was the BEST First Aid class I've ever been to.

They really geared the class for motorcyclists and motorcycling situations.

It was so close to being a certified class that I just added
another hour and you get the certification too!

Doc Wong Basic Suspension Workshop-Part 2, Feb 13 Wed night! 

(http://www.freeimagehosting.net/t/87895.jpg) (http://www.freeimagehosting.net/87895)

Topic: Basic Suspension Workshop -  Part 2

Place: Full Motion Chiropractic http://tinyurl.com/6vp36k3
          Carlmont Shopping Center (Next to Baskin Robbins Ice Cream)
          1021 Alameda De Las Pulgas
          Belmont, CA 94002

Time: Wednesday night, Feb 13, 2013 from 6:30 PM-8:30 PM

Cost: the cost has doubled  ;-)   ( $0 * 2 = $0 )

How to sign up:  e-mail me at:  docwong@aol.com


Hi,

You're invited to the next:  Basic Suspension Workshop - Part 2

Here's the only catch:  It's limited to 35 riders because we will be taking apart and examining the internals of a set of forks.  Yes, you'll see the innards of the thing and see how it works to gain a deeper understanding of how suspension works.  Those who attended the last Basic Suspension Workshop (Level 1) will get first priority.  

One month there was even a guy that flew from Colorado to attend the workshop and flew back the next morning!

The Suspension Seminar Part 2, should be extraordinarily interesting tonight, I will go through the normal presentation portion of the program and will vary from the previous format by adding a lab where he'll be setting up a folding card table to perform a complete "piece by piece" dissection process on a full front fork assembly, and a rear shock assembly, while the students observe.  We'll be identifying the function of each individual item, as it's removed.  Should be a very educational experience, and rare opportunity for the riders in attendance.  I'm excited about implementing this new "twist" on the suspension training program!

I'm very pleased with the materials that I've put together so far, as I believe they will be quite effective at directly addressing the questions and issues that most motorcyclists have regarding the 'black magic' of setting up their compression and rebound adjustments, as well as other related aspects of suspension tuning.

Having attended Suspension Seminar Part 1 is not a prerequisite for coming to Part 2.

You'll also get a working knowledge of how compression and rebound works on a bike by actually adjusting the suspension.

"The format for The "PART 2" seminar looks like this:
******************************************************
1. Spring "Preload": "Setting proper "SAG", a quick review"
2. Compression & Rebound : "Solving the mystery"
3. Dissembling a set of forks and examining it's internals
4. Advanced suspension tuning: "Going beyond the factory": Wheelbase, Fork tube height. Fork oil level/viscosity
5. Troubleshooting common bike handling complaints (student contribution)
6. Cartridge fork dissembly
7. Final Question & Answer session

NEW Doc Wong Braking Confidence & Skills Workshop! Th, Feb 7, 6:30PM

(http://www.freeimagehosting.net/t/87895.jpg) (http://www.freeimagehosting.net/87895)

Hi,

I'm sure you're aware how to brake effectively is as important a skill as all of the other skills necessary for smooth, confident and safe riding.  I'm finding that a lot of riders can improve their skills in how and when to apply the brakes.  There is definitely a safety issue with the incorrect use of the brakes.  This causes either increased braking distances and at worst locking up the brakes prematurely, sliding out or crashing.

It's one of those skills that a lot of riders don't think of until the SHTF.  In this very unique clinic I'll be covering key points and techniques that every rider should know such as:  

Emergency Braking, Threshold Braking and Locking up the Front tire (how not to)
Braking at the limits of traction: How best to avoid crashing
Braking and Corner Entry Speed: How to Smoothly and Effectively Transition from one to the other
Critical Dos and Don'ts regarding Braking
Braking While In a Turn
Trail-braking
What Brake To Use: Front vas Rear brakes
Engine Braking
All About ABS
Braking and Downshifting
Downhill Braking

Improving riding confidence comes with knowing, applying and practicing the basic skills of riding.  With improved knowledge and skill anyone can become a smoother and safer rider.  I hope to present this vital topic to you in a way that truly improves your understanding and ability to apply this while riding and braking.

The Doc Wong Riding Clinics are now in it's 18 year with now over 40,000 riders having attended!  Is that cool or what?  Anyway welcome to this new clinic, I hope you find it helpful.

Yours in great health, great riding and great fun!

If you show up in shorts, tanktop, 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 but not required.* You are responsible for your own safety.

WORKSHOP FORMAT: (Each month is a different riding skills topic)

1. Meet at Doc Wong's Chiropractic oiffice in Carlmont Shopping Center at 9 AM. After signing wavers, Doc Wong gives an hour lecture on the day's riding topic. He'll also go over Riding Within Your Abilities, Group Riding, and Road Manners.* You'll be asked to fill out an optional survey for riding feedback and health issues. Then we will be split up into small groups with ride leader volunteers to lead you thru the hills.* 

2. The Ride: 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 theride. As volunteer riders, they are often very willing to help you inany 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'tcontinue until everyone has arrived.

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

Ride Route:* http://tinyurl.com/6gs5yu

From Dr. Wong's office up to Woodside Road, up Kings Mountain Road, down Tunitas Creek Road and a short stop at the San Gregorio Road. Continue on Stage Road to the town of Pescadero to Cloverdale, Gazos Creek Road to Hwy 1. Then down Hwy 1 to Davenport for lunch. After lunch, it's south on Highway 1 to Bonny Doone Road, right on Smith Grade to Empire Grade, down Jamison Creek Road to Boulder Creek, then up Hwy 9 to the corner of Hwy 9 and Skyline at the rest stop 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!

Doc Wong Basic Suspension Workshop Part 1--Mar 15 Fri Night!

(http://www.freeimagehosting.net/t/87895.jpg) (http://www.freeimagehosting.net/87895)

Hi,

You're invited the next Basic Suspension Part One Workshop!

I'm hyper-excited, this workshop will demystify and really enhance your knowledge of suspension setup. It is geared for those of you who are neophytes in suspension to those of you who want to know more about how set up your bike properly!

One month there was even a guy that flew from Colorado to attend the workshop and flew back the next morning!

What: Basic Suspension Part One
When: March 15, 2013, 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm
Where: Doc Wong's Full Motion Chiropractic Office
          Carlmont Village Shopping Center
          1021 Alameda De Las Pulgas
          Belmont, CA 94002
Cost: $0.00
How to sign up:  just e-mail me at: docwong@aol.com

About the topic, "Basic Suspension Setup": Worksheets have been made up with pertinent data that will be very simple and understandable. He will even have basic terminology defined so that you will know the terms and how they apply to making your bike feel good, bad, bumpy, springy, etc. The workshop will give you a very good understanding of how a suspension works and what you need to do to your bike to improve it's handling characteristics.

Workshop format:  

1.  Basic terms with demonstrations on a sport bike. I'll go over each term one by one and demonstrate them so that you will see them in action.

2.  Adjustments and how they effect the handling of your motorcycle and how you can do them on your bike.

3.  Poor handling characteristics due to "mis-adjustments" and how they can be remedied.

The workshop will be kept simple enough to ensure that when you leave, you'll have a very good understanding of how a suspension works and an idea of how to adjust your own bike. You'll have handouts and worksheets to make notes on too!

Due to the content of the materials presented, parental guidance is suggested as your enhanced understanding of how your suspension works and its subsequent demystification may bring about wide grins!

We do have to limit the number of riders to 40, due to the fact that we want everyone to see how the adjustments are made on the motorcycle.  

Want to use your bike as the demo bike for the evening? E-mail me with the specifics of your bike:  Make, model, year and if it has adjustable front and back preload.

How to register:

NEW Doc Wong Braking Confidence & Skills Workshop! Th, Mar 7, 6:30PM

(http://www.freeimagehosting.net/t/87895.jpg) (http://www.freeimagehosting.net/87895)

Hi,

I'm sure you're aware how to brake effectively is as important a skill as all of the other skills necessary for smooth, confident and safe riding.  I'm finding that a lot of riders can improve their skills in how and when to apply the brakes.  There is definitely a safety issue with the incorrect use of the brakes.  This causes either increased braking distances and at worst locking up the brakes prematurely, sliding out or crashing.

It's one of those skills that a lot of riders don't think of until the SHTF.  In this very unique clinic I'll be covering key points and techniques that every rider should know such as:  

Emergency Braking, Threshold Braking and Locking up the Front tire (how not to)
Braking at the limits of traction: How best to avoid crashing
Braking and Corner Entry Speed: How to Smoothly and Effectively Transition from one to the other
Critical Dos and Don'ts regarding Braking
Braking While In a Turn
Trail-braking
What Brake To Use: Front vas Rear brakes
Engine Braking
All About ABS
Braking and Downshifting
Downhill Braking

Improving riding confidence comes with knowing, applying and practicing the basic skills of riding.  With improved knowledge and skill anyone can become a smoother and safer rider.  I hope to present this vital topic to you in a way that truly improves your understanding and ability to apply this while riding and braking.

The Doc Wong Riding Clinics are now in it's 18 year with now over 40,000 riders having attended!  Is that cool or what?  Anyway welcome to this new clinic, I hope you find it helpful.

Yours in great health, great riding and great fun!

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

Dr. Harry Wong, a prominent Belmont chiropractor and extremely knowledgeable sport rider, is holding a monthly series of MotorcycleRiding 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.

The Doc Wong Riding Clinics are now in it's 15th year!

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

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

SKILL LEVEL 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.  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 ofexpertise required. 

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, tanktop, 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 but not required.* You are responsible for your own safety.

upright dual sport bike. *That way I can demonstrate the range of *
riding positions and the range of ergonomic adjustments you can do to *
your bike. Find out how certain riding styles and poor bike setup can *

suggestions on the ergonomics of your motorcycle.

Doc Wong Certified First Aid/CPR for Motorcyclists!! Sun, May 12, 2013

(http://www.freeimagehosting.net/t/87895.jpg) (http://www.freeimagehosting.net/87895)

Hi,

Most of us have been there....on a ride and someone goes down. You see
that cloud of dust or the rider is in front of you and you get that
sinking, oh s....t feeling and hope it's not too bad.

But what if the injuries are bad? Are you prepared to assist? Will you do
the right thing? It can mean the difference between life and death, minor
or major injuries. There's an even more important procedure than tending
to the fallen rider, what's that?

Learn what to do and not do when the unexpected happens. What's the very
first thing you must do even before attending to the fallen rider. How do
you handle road rash, fractures, and bleeding. When should you remove the
helmet? What about spinal injuries, shock and much more.

This is a power packed workshop, hands on, First Aid and CPR class geared
for you. So you can be ready for the worst, but of course hope for the best!

We'll even go over what you should have in your First Aid kits!

This 5 hour First Aid / CPR course which will help you in handling the most
common First Aid / CPR situations that you encounter as a motorcyclist!

To top it off, you'll get a CPR certification (2 year, Adult & Pediatric, American Heart Assn.) and first aid certification!

If you are an EMT, I need volunteer instructors to help out! The number of
volunteers will determine the number of students I can have.

So e-mail me if you're an EMT (Emergency Medical Technician).

What: Doc Wong Certified First Aid/CPR for Motorcyclists!
When: Sunday, May 12, 2013
Time: 9am to 3pm
Where: Doc Wong's office at 1021 Alameda de las Pulgas, Belmont, CA 94002
Cost: $40 (includes CPR and first aid certification)
How to sign up: e-mail docwong@aol.com.  Please include name and telephone number.

Proceeds go to the JW House at Kaiser Hospital in Santa Clara. JW House keeps families together during medical crisis by offering a welcoming home just steps away from the hospital, providing a caring and compassionate environment that inspires hope.
http://www.jwhouse.org/ (http://www.jwhouse.org/)

This was the BEST First Aid class I've ever been to.

They really geared the class for motorcyclists and motorcycling situations.

It was so close to being a certified class that I just added
another hour and you get the certification too!

Hi,

You're invited to the next:  Basic Suspension Workshop - Part 2

Here's the only catch:  It's limited to 35 riders because we will be taking apart and examining the internals of a set of forks.  Yes, you'll see the innards of the thing and see how it works to gain a deeper understanding of how suspension works.  Those who attended the last Basic Suspension Workshop (Level 1) will get first priority.  

One month there was even a guy that flew from Colorado to attend the workshop and flew back the next morning!

The Suspension Seminar Part 2, should be extraordinarily interesting tonight, I will go through the normal presentation portion of the program and will vary from the previous format by adding a lab where I'll be setting up a folding card table to perform a complete "piece by piece" dissection process on a full front fork assembly, and a rear shock assembly, while the students observe.  We'll be identifying the function of each individual item, as it's removed.  Should be a very educational experience, and rare opportunity for the riders in attendance.  I'm excited about implementing this new "twist" on the suspension training program!

I'm very pleased with the materials that I've put together so far, as I believe they will be quite effective at directly addressing the questions and issues that most motorcyclists have regarding the 'black magic' of setting up their compression and rebound adjustments, as well as other related aspects of suspension tuning.

Having attended Suspension Seminar Part 1 is not a prerequisite for coming to Part 2.

You'll also get a working knowledge of how compression and rebound works on a bike by actually adjusting the suspension.

"The format for The "PART 2" seminar looks like this:
******************************************************
1. Spring "Preload": "Setting proper "SAG", a quick review"
2. Compression & Rebound : "Solving the mystery"
3. Dissembling a set of forks and examining it's internals
4. Advanced suspension tuning: "Going beyond the factory": Wheelbase, Fork tube height. Fork oil level/viscosity
5. Troubleshooting common bike handling complaints (student contribution)
6. Cartridge fork dissembly
7. Final Question & Answer session

If you show up in shorts, tanktop, 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 but not required.* You are responsible for your own safety.

WORKSHOP FORMAT: (Each month is a different riding skills topic)

1. Meet at Doc Wong's Chiropractic oiffice in Carlmont Shopping Center at 9 AM. After signing wavers, Doc Wong gives an hour lecture on the day's riding topic. He'll also go over Riding Within Your Abilities, Group Riding, and Road Manners.* You'll be asked to fill out an optional survey for riding feedback and health issues. Then we will be split up into small groups with ride leader volunteers to lead you thru the hills.* 

2. The Ride: 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 theride. As volunteer riders, they are often very willing to help you inany 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'tcontinue until everyone has arrived.

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

Ride Route:* http://tinyurl.com/6gs5yu

From Dr. Wong's office up to Woodside Road, up Kings Mountain Road, down Tunitas Creek Road and a short stop at the San Gregorio Road. Continue on Stage Road to the town of Pescadero to Cloverdale, Gazos Creek Road to Hwy 1. Then down Hwy 1 to Davenport for lunch. After lunch, it's south on Highway 1 to Bonny Doone Road, right on Smith Grade to Empire Grade, down Jamison Creek Road to Boulder Creek, then up Hwy 9 to the corner of Hwy 9 and Skyline at the rest stop 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!

NEW Doc Wong Braking Confidence & Skills Workshop! Th, May 9, 6:30PM

(http://www.freeimagehosting.net/t/87895.jpg) (http://www.freeimagehosting.net/87895)

Hi,

I'm sure you're aware how to brake effectively is as important a skill as all of the other skills necessary for smooth, confident and safe riding.  I'm finding that a lot of riders can improve their skills in how and when to apply the brakes.  There is definitely a safety issue with the incorrect use of the brakes.  This causes either increased braking distances and at worst locking up the brakes prematurely, sliding out or crashing.

It's one of those skills that a lot of riders don't think of until the SHTF.  In this very unique clinic I'll be covering key points and techniques that every rider should know such as:  

Emergency Braking, Threshold Braking and Locking up the Front tire (how not to)
Braking at the limits of traction: How best to avoid crashing
Braking and Corner Entry Speed: How to Smoothly and Effectively Transition from one to the other
Critical Dos and Don'ts regarding Braking
Braking While In a Turn
Trail-braking
What Brake To Use: Front vas Rear brakes
Engine Braking
All About ABS
Braking and Downshifting
Downhill Braking

Improving riding confidence comes with knowing, applying and practicing the basic skills of riding.  With improved knowledge and skill anyone can become a smoother and safer rider.  I hope to present this vital topic to you in a way that truly improves your understanding and ability to apply this while riding and braking.

The Doc Wong Riding Clinics are now in it's 18 year with now over 40,000 riders having attended!  Is that cool or what?  Anyway welcome to this new clinic, I hope you find it helpful.

Yours in great health, great riding and great fun!

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

Dr. Harry Wong, a prominent Belmont chiropractor and extremely knowledgeable sport rider, is holding a monthly series of MotorcycleRiding 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.

The Doc Wong Riding Clinics are now in it's 15th year!

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

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

SKILL LEVEL 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.  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 ofexpertise required. 

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, tanktop, 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 but not required.* You are responsible for your own safety.

WORKSHOP FORMAT: (Each month is a different riding skills topic)

1. Meet at Doc Wong's Chiropractic oiffice in Carlmont Shopping Center at 9 AM. After signing wavers, Doc Wong gives an hour lecture on the day's riding topic. He'll also go over Riding Within Your Abilities, Group Riding, and Road Manners.* You'll be asked to fill out an optional survey for riding feedback and health issues. Then we will be split up into small groups with ride leader volunteers to lead you thru the hills.* 

2. The Ride: 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 theride. As volunteer riders, they are often very willing to help you inany 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'tcontinue until everyone has arrived.

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

Doc Wong Basic Suspension Workshop Part 1--May 17 Fri Night!

(http://www.freeimagehosting.net/t/87895.jpg) (http://www.freeimagehosting.net/87895)

Hi,

You're invited the next Basic Suspension Part One Workshop!

I'm hyper-excited, this workshop will demystify and really enhance your knowledge of suspension setup. It is geared for those of you who are neophytes in suspension to those of you who want to know more about how set up your bike properly!

One month there was even a guy that flew from Colorado to attend the workshop and flew back the next morning!

What: Basic Suspension Part One
When: May 17, 2013, 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm
Where: Doc Wong's Full Motion Chiropractic Office
          Carlmont Village Shopping Center
          1021 Alameda De Las Pulgas
          Belmont, CA 94002
Cost: $0.00
How to sign up:  just e-mail me at: docwong@aol.com

About the topic, "Basic Suspension Setup": Worksheets have been made up with pertinent data that will be very simple and understandable. I will even have basic terminology defined so that you will know the terms and how they apply to making your bike feel good, bad, bumpy, springy, etc. The workshop will give you a very good understanding of how a suspension works and what you need to do to your bike to improve it's handling characteristics.

Workshop format:  

1.  Basic terms with demonstrations on a sport bike. I'll go over each term one by one and demonstrate them so that you will see them in action.

2.  Adjustments and how they effect the handling of your motorcycle and how you can do them on your bike.

3.  Poor handling characteristics due to "mis-adjustments" and how they can be remedied.

The workshop will be kept simple enough to ensure that when you leave, you'll have a very good understanding of how a suspension works and an idea of how to adjust your own bike. You'll have handouts and worksheets to make notes on too!

Due to the content of the materials presented, parental guidance is suggested as your enhanced understanding of how your suspension works and its subsequent demystification may bring about wide grins!

We do have to limit the number of riders to 40, due to the fact that we want everyone to see how the adjustments are made on the motorcycle.  

Want to use your bike as the demo bike for the evening? E-mail me with the specifics of your bike:  Make, model, year and if it has adjustable front and back preload.

changed to ergonomically fit your bike to you. *Also, I'll cover the *
most common neck, back and wrist problems I see and what you can do to *
ride comfortably.

Riding Positions will include optimal positions for street, sport, *
toruing, racing and dirt or dual sport riding. *Which positions *
produce optimum performance and which get riders into trouble along *
with which causes the most pain and what to do about it. *I'll *
demonstate on a couple of very different bikes, a sport bike and an *
upright dual sport bike. *That way I can demonstrate the range of *
riding positions and the range of ergonomic adjustments you can do to *
your bike. Find out how certain riding styles and poor bike setup can *
be hazardous and how to solve them. The end result is you being more *

bike to your body and style of riding. The ergonomics of different *
bike types and body types will be addressed and participants will have *

suggestions on the ergonomics of your motorcycle.

Hi,

I am SO excited to offer this special workshop!

Our special guest speaker is a retired Special Operations Intelligence Officer with over 26 years field experience in high-risk, hostile and even behind enemy lines experience. Very few people in the world have extensive knowledge and experience in how to survive in difficult situations.

Ever planning on doing a motorcycle trip into another country? You'll want to know what he has to say to stay safe, recognize and avoid trouble and what would ever be the best
plan of action in case something bad happens.

He's been on every continent with extensive experience in how to first of all, stay out of trouble and if the SHTF, what do you then do. Did you know that if you were ever handcuffed or tied with duct tape that you could easily break out of them without tools? He'll show us how in this workshop!

Here's the only catch:  It's limited to 35 riders because we will be taking apart and examining the internals of a set of forks.  Yes, you'll see the innards of the thing and see how it works to gain a deeper understanding of how suspension works.  Those who attended the last Basic Suspension Workshop (Level 1) will get first priority.  

One month there was even a guy that flew from Colorado to attend the workshop and flew back the next morning!

The Suspension Seminar Part 2, should be extraordinarily interesting tonight, I will go through the normal presentation portion of the program and will vary from the previous format by adding a lab where I'll be setting up a folding card table to perform a complete "piece by piece" dissection process on a full front fork assembly, and a rear shock assembly, while the students observe.  We'll be identifying the function of each individual item, as it's removed.  Should be a very educational experience, and rare opportunity for the riders in attendance.  I'm excited about implementing this new "twist" on the suspension training program!

I'm very pleased with the materials that I've put together so far, as I believe they will be quite effective at directly addressing the questions and issues that most motorcyclists have regarding the 'black magic' of setting up their compression and rebound adjustments, as well as other related aspects of suspension tuning.

Having attended Suspension Seminar Part 1 is not a prerequisite for coming to Part 2.

You'll also get a working knowledge of how compression and rebound works on a bike by actually adjusting the suspension.

"The format for The "PART 2" seminar looks like this:
******************************************************
1. Spring "Preload": "Setting proper "SAG", a quick review"
2. Compression & Rebound : "Solving the mystery"
3. Dissembling a set of forks and examining it's internals
4. Advanced suspension tuning: "Going beyond the factory": Wheelbase, Fork tube height. Fork oil level/viscosity
5. Troubleshooting common bike handling complaints (student contribution)
6. Cartridge fork dissembly
7. Final Question & Answer session

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

Dr. Harry Wong, a prominent Belmont chiropractor and extremely knowledgeable sport rider, is holding a monthly series of MotorcycleRiding 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.

The Doc Wong Riding Clinics are now in it's 15th year!

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

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

SKILL LEVEL 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.  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 ofexpertise required. 

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, tanktop, 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 but not required.* You are responsible for your own safety.

WORKSHOP FORMAT: (Each month is a different riding skills topic)

1. Meet at Doc Wong's Chiropractic oiffice in Carlmont Shopping Center at 9 AM. After signing wavers, Doc Wong gives an hour lecture on the day's riding topic. He'll also go over Riding Within Your Abilities, Group Riding, and Road Manners.* You'll be asked to fill out an optional survey for riding feedback and health issues. Then we will be split up into small groups with ride leader volunteers to lead you thru the hills.* 

2. The Ride: 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 theride. As volunteer riders, they are often very willing to help you inany 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'tcontinue until everyone has arrived.

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

Ride Route:* http://tinyurl.com/6gs5yu

From Dr. Wong's office up to Woodside Road, up Kings Mountain Road, down Tunitas Creek Road and a short stop at the San Gregorio Road. Continue on Stage Road to the town of Pescadero to Cloverdale, Gazos Creek Road to Hwy 1. Then down Hwy 1 to Davenport for lunch. After lunch, it's south on Highway 1 to Bonny Doone Road, right on Smith Grade to Empire Grade, down Jamison Creek Road to Boulder Creek, then up Hwy 9 to the corner of Hwy 9 and Skyline at the rest stop 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!

Doc Wong Braking Confidence & Skills Workshop! Th, July 11, 6:30PM

(http://www.freeimagehosting.net/t/87895.jpg) (http://www.freeimagehosting.net/87895)

Hi,

I'm sure you're aware how to brake effectively is as important a skill as all of the other skills necessary for smooth, confident and safe riding.  I'm finding that a lot of riders can improve their skills in how and when to apply the brakes.  There is definitely a safety issue with the incorrect use of the brakes.  This causes either increased braking distances and at worst locking up the brakes prematurely, sliding out or crashing.

It's one of those skills that a lot of riders don't think of until the SHTF.  In this very unique clinic I'll be covering key points and techniques that every rider should know such as:  

Emergency Braking, Threshold Braking and Locking up the Front tire (how not to)
Braking at the limits of traction: How best to avoid crashing
Braking and Corner Entry Speed: How to Smoothly and Effectively Transition from one to the other
Critical Dos and Don'ts regarding Braking
Braking While In a Turn
Trail-braking
What Brake To Use: Front vas Rear brakes
Engine Braking
All About ABS
Braking and Downshifting
Downhill Braking

Improving riding confidence comes with knowing, applying and practicing the basic skills of riding.  With improved knowledge and skill anyone can become a smoother and safer rider.  I hope to present this vital topic to you in a way that truly improves your understanding and ability to apply this while riding and braking.

The Doc Wong Riding Clinics are now in it's 18 year with now over 40,000 riders having attended!  Is that cool or what?  Anyway welcome to this new clinic, I hope you find it helpful.

Yours in great health, great riding and great fun!

Doc Wong Basic Suspension Workshop Part 1--July 19 Fri Night!

(http://www.freeimagehosting.net/t/87895.jpg) (http://www.freeimagehosting.net/87895)

Hi,

You're invited the next Basic Suspension Part One Workshop!

I'm hyper-excited, this workshop will demystify and really enhance your knowledge of suspension setup. It is geared for those of you who are neophytes in suspension to those of you who want to know more about how set up your bike properly!

One month there was even a guy that flew from Colorado to attend the workshop and flew back the next morning!

What: Basic Suspension Part One
When: Friday, July 19, 2013, 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm
Where: Doc Wong's Full Motion Chiropractic Office
          Carlmont Village Shopping Center
          1021 Alameda De Las Pulgas
          Belmont, CA 94002
Cost: $0.00
How to sign up:  just e-mail me at: docwong@aol.com

About the topic, "Basic Suspension Setup": Worksheets have been made up with pertinent data that will be very simple and understandable. I will even have basic terminology defined so that you will know the terms and how they apply to making your bike feel good, bad, bumpy, springy, etc. The workshop will give you a very good understanding of how a suspension works and what you need to do to your bike to improve it's handling characteristics.

Workshop format:  

1.  Basic terms with demonstrations on a sport bike. I'll go over each term one by one and demonstrate them so that you will see them in action.

2.  Adjustments and how they effect the handling of your motorcycle and how you can do them on your bike.

3.  Poor handling characteristics due to "mis-adjustments" and how they can be remedied.

The workshop will be kept simple enough to ensure that when you leave, you'll have a very good understanding of how a suspension works and an idea of how to adjust your own bike. You'll have handouts and worksheets to make notes on too!

Due to the content of the materials presented, parental guidance is suggested as your enhanced understanding of how your suspension works and its subsequent demystification may bring about wide grins!

We do have to limit the number of riders to 40, due to the fact that we want everyone to see how the adjustments are made on the motorcycle.  

Want to use your bike as the demo bike for the evening? E-mail me with the specifics of your bike:  Make, model, year and if it has adjustable front and back preload.

Doc Wong Certified First Aid/CPR for Motorcyclists!! Sun, Sept 15, 2013

(http://www.freeimagehosting.net/t/87895.jpg) (http://www.freeimagehosting.net/87895)

Hi,

Most of us have been there....on a ride and someone goes down. You see
that cloud of dust or the rider is in front of you and you get that
sinking, oh s....t feeling and hope it's not too bad.

But what if the injuries are bad? Are you prepared to assist? Will you do
the right thing? It can mean the difference between life and death, minor
or major injuries. There's an even more important procedure than tending
to the fallen rider, what's that?

Learn what to do and not do when the unexpected happens. What's the very
first thing you must do even before attending to the fallen rider. How do
you handle road rash, fractures, and bleeding. When should you remove the
helmet? What about spinal injuries, shock and much more.

This is a power packed workshop, hands on, First Aid and CPR class geared
for you. So you can be ready for the worst, but of course hope for the best!

We'll even go over what you should have in your First Aid kits!

This 5 hour First Aid / CPR course which will help you in handling the most
common First Aid / CPR situations that you encounter as a motorcyclist!

To top it off, you'll get a CPR certification (2 year, Adult & Pediatric, American Heart Assn.) and first aid certification!

If you are an EMT, I need volunteer instructors to help out! The number of
volunteers will determine the number of students I can have.

So e-mail me if you're an EMT (Emergency Medical Technician).

What: Doc Wong Certified First Aid/CPR for Motorcyclists!
When: Sunday, Sept 15, 2013
Time: 9am to 3pm
Where: Doc Wong's office at 1021 Alameda de las Pulgas, Belmont, CA 94002
Cost: $40 (includes CPR and first aid certification)
How to sign up: e-mail docwong@aol.com.  Please include name and telephone number.

Proceeds go to the JW House at Kaiser Hospital in Santa Clara. JW House keeps families together during medical crisis by offering a welcoming home just steps away from the hospital, providing a caring and compassionate environment that inspires hope.
http://www.jwhouse.org/ (http://www.jwhouse.org/)

This was the BEST First Aid class I've ever been to.

They really geared the class for motorcyclists and motorcycling situations.

It was so close to being a certified class that I just added
another hour and you get the certification too!


Ride street, ride track, ride dirt, trials.....ride.....well!

Hi,

You're invited to the next:  Basic Suspension Workshop - Part 2

Here's the only catch:  It's limited to 35 riders because we will be taking apart and examining the internals of a set of forks.  Yes, you'll see the innards of the thing and see how it works to gain a deeper understanding of how suspension works.  Those who attended the last Basic Suspension Workshop (Level 1) will get first priority.  

One month there was even a guy that flew from Colorado to attend the workshop and flew back the next morning!

The Suspension Seminar Part 2, should be extraordinarily interesting tonight, I will go through the normal presentation portion of the program and will vary from the previous format by adding a lab where I'll be setting up a folding card table to perform a complete "piece by piece" dissection process on a full front fork assembly, and a rear shock assembly, while the students observe.  We'll be identifying the function of each individual item, as it's removed.  Should be a very educational experience, and rare opportunity for the riders in attendance.  I'm excited about implementing this new "twist" on the suspension training program!

I'm very pleased with the materials that I've put together so far, as I believe they will be quite effective at directly addressing the questions and issues that most motorcyclists have regarding the 'black magic' of setting up their compression and rebound adjustments, as well as other related aspects of suspension tuning.

Having attended Suspension Seminar Part 1 is not a prerequisite for coming to Part 2.

You'll also get a working knowledge of how compression and rebound works on a bike by actually adjusting the suspension.

"The format for The "PART 2" seminar looks like this:
******************************************************
1. Spring "Preload": "Setting proper "SAG", a quick review"
2. Compression & Rebound : "Solving the mystery"
3. Dissembling a set of forks and examining it's internals
4. Advanced suspension tuning: "Going beyond the factory": Wheelbase, Fork tube height. Fork oil level/viscosity
5. Troubleshooting common bike handling complaints (student contribution)
6. Cartridge fork dissembly
7. Final Question & Answer session

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

Dr. Harry Wong, a prominent Belmont chiropractor and extremely knowledgeable sport rider, is holding a monthly series of MotorcycleRiding 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.

The Doc Wong Riding Clinics are now in it's 15th year!

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

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

SKILL LEVEL 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.  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 ofexpertise required. 

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, tanktop, 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 but not required.* You are responsible for your own safety.

WORKSHOP FORMAT: (Each month is a different riding skills topic)

1. Meet at Doc Wong's Chiropractic oiffice in Carlmont Shopping Center at 9 AM. After signing wavers, Doc Wong gives an hour lecture on the day's riding topic. He'll also go over Riding Within Your Abilities, Group Riding, and Road Manners.* You'll be asked to fill out an optional survey for riding feedback and health issues. Then we will be split up into small groups with ride leader volunteers to lead you thru the hills.* 

2. The Ride: 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 theride. As volunteer riders, they are often very willing to help you inany 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'tcontinue until everyone has arrived.

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

Ride Route:* http://tinyurl.com/6gs5yu

From Dr. Wong's office up to Woodside Road, up Kings Mountain Road, down Tunitas Creek Road and a short stop at the San Gregorio Road. Continue on Stage Road to the town of Pescadero to Cloverdale, Gazos Creek Road to Hwy 1. Then down Hwy 1 to Davenport for lunch. After lunch, it's south on Highway 1 to Bonny Doone Road, right on Smith Grade to Empire Grade, down Jamison Creek Road to Boulder Creek, then up Hwy 9 to the corner of Hwy 9 and Skyline at the rest stop 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!

Doc Wong Braking Confidence & Skills Workshop! Th, Sept 19, 6:30PM

(http://www.freeimagehosting.net/t/87895.jpg) (http://www.freeimagehosting.net/87895)

Hi,

I'm sure you're aware how to brake effectively is as important a skill as all of the other skills necessary for smooth, confident and safe riding.  I'm finding that a lot of riders can improve their skills in how and when to apply the brakes.  There is definitely a safety issue with the incorrect use of the brakes.  This causes either increased braking distances and at worst locking up the brakes prematurely, sliding out or crashing.

It's one of those skills that a lot of riders don't think of until the SHTF.  In this very unique clinic I'll be covering key points and techniques that every rider should know such as:  

Emergency Braking, Threshold Braking and Locking up the Front tire (how not to)
Braking at the limits of traction: How best to avoid crashing
Braking and Corner Entry Speed: How to Smoothly and Effectively Transition from one to the other
Critical Dos and Don'ts regarding Braking
Braking While In a Turn
Trail-braking
What Brake To Use: Front vas Rear brakes
Engine Braking
All About ABS
Braking and Downshifting
Downhill Braking

Improving riding confidence comes with knowing, applying and practicing the basic skills of riding.  With improved knowledge and skill anyone can become a smoother and safer rider.  I hope to present this vital topic to you in a way that truly improves your understanding and ability to apply this while riding and braking.

The Doc Wong Riding Clinics are now in it's 18 year with now over 40,000 riders having attended!  Is that cool or what?  Anyway welcome to this new clinic, I hope you find it helpful.

Yours in great health, great riding and great fun!

Doc Wong Basic Suspension Workshop Part 1--Sept 20 Fri Night!

(http://www.freeimagehosting.net/t/87895.jpg) (http://www.freeimagehosting.net/87895)

Hi,

You're invited the next Basic Suspension Part One Workshop!

I'm hyper-excited, this workshop will demystify and really enhance your knowledge of suspension setup. It is geared for those of you who are neophytes in suspension to those of you who want to know more about how set up your bike properly!

One month there was even a guy that flew from Colorado to attend the workshop and flew back the next morning!

What: Basic Suspension Part One
When: Friday, Sept 20, 2013, 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm
Where: Doc Wong's Full Motion Chiropractic Office
          Carlmont Village Shopping Center
          1021 Alameda De Las Pulgas
          Belmont, CA 94002
Cost: $0.00
How to sign up:  just e-mail me at: docwong@aol.com

About the topic, "Basic Suspension Setup": Worksheets have been made up with pertinent data that will be very simple and understandable. I will even have basic terminology defined so that you will know the terms and how they apply to making your bike feel good, bad, bumpy, springy, etc. The workshop will give you a very good understanding of how a suspension works and what you need to do to your bike to improve it's handling characteristics.

Workshop format:  

1.  Basic terms with demonstrations on a sport bike. I'll go over each term one by one and demonstrate them so that you will see them in action.

2.  Adjustments and how they effect the handling of your motorcycle and how you can do them on your bike.

3.  Poor handling characteristics due to "mis-adjustments" and how they can be remedied.

The workshop will be kept simple enough to ensure that when you leave, you'll have a very good understanding of how a suspension works and an idea of how to adjust your own bike. You'll have handouts and worksheets to make notes on too!

Due to the content of the materials presented, parental guidance is suggested as your enhanced understanding of how your suspension works and its subsequent demystification may bring about wide grins!

We do have to limit the number of riders to 40, due to the fact that we want everyone to see how the adjustments are made on the motorcycle.  

Want to use your bike as the demo bike for the evening? E-mail me with the specifics of your bike:  Make, model, year and if it has adjustable front and back preload.

Hi,

You're invited to the next:  Basic Suspension Workshop - Part 2

Here's the only catch:  It's limited to 35 riders because we will be taking apart and examining the internals of a set of forks.  Yes, you'll see the innards of the thing and see how it works to gain a deeper understanding of how suspension works.  Those who attended the last Basic Suspension Workshop (Level 1) will get first priority.  

One month there was even a guy that flew from Colorado to attend the workshop and flew back the next morning!

The Suspension Seminar Part 2, should be extraordinarily interesting tonight, I will go through the normal presentation portion of the program and will vary from the previous format by adding a lab where I'll be setting up a folding card table to perform a complete "piece by piece" dissection process on a full front fork assembly, and a rear shock assembly, while the students observe.  We'll be identifying the function of each individual item, as it's removed.  Should be a very educational experience, and rare opportunity for the riders in attendance.  I'm excited about implementing this new "twist" on the suspension training program!

I'm very pleased with the materials that I've put together so far, as I believe they will be quite effective at directly addressing the questions and issues that most motorcyclists have regarding the 'black magic' of setting up their compression and rebound adjustments, as well as other related aspects of suspension tuning.

Having attended Suspension Seminar Part 1 is not a prerequisite for coming to Part 2.

You'll also get a working knowledge of how compression and rebound works on a bike by actually adjusting the suspension.

"The format for The "PART 2" seminar looks like this:
******************************************************
1. Spring "Preload": "Setting proper "SAG", a quick review"
2. Compression & Rebound : "Solving the mystery"
3. Dissembling a set of forks and examining it's internals
4. Advanced suspension tuning: "Going beyond the factory": Wheelbase, Fork tube height. Fork oil level/viscosity
5. Troubleshooting common bike handling complaints (student contribution)
6. Cartridge fork dissembly
7. Final Question & Answer session

Doc Wong Braking Confidence & Skills Workshop! Th, Oct 10, 6:30PM

(http://www.freeimagehosting.net/t/87895.jpg) (http://www.freeimagehosting.net/87895)

Hi,

I'm sure you're aware how to brake effectively is as important a skill as all of the other skills necessary for smooth, confident and safe riding.  I'm finding that a lot of riders can improve their skills in how and when to apply the brakes.  There is definitely a safety issue with the incorrect use of the brakes.  This causes either increased braking distances and at worst locking up the brakes prematurely, sliding out or crashing.

It's one of those skills that a lot of riders don't think of until the SHTF.  In this very unique clinic I'll be covering key points and techniques that every rider should know such as:  

Emergency Braking, Threshold Braking and Locking up the Front tire (how not to)
Braking at the limits of traction: How best to avoid crashing
Braking and Corner Entry Speed: How to Smoothly and Effectively Transition from one to the other
Critical Dos and Don'ts regarding Braking
Braking While In a Turn
Trail-braking
What Brake To Use: Front vas Rear brakes
Engine Braking
All About ABS
Braking and Downshifting
Downhill Braking

Improving riding confidence comes with knowing, applying and practicing the basic skills of riding.  With improved knowledge and skill anyone can become a smoother and safer rider.  I hope to present this vital topic to you in a way that truly improves your understanding and ability to apply this while riding and braking.

The Doc Wong Riding Clinics are now in it's 18 year with now over 40,000 riders having attended!  Is that cool or what?  Anyway welcome to this new clinic, I hope you find it helpful.

Yours in great health, great riding and great fun!

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

Dr. Harry Wong, a prominent Belmont chiropractor and extremely knowledgeable sport rider, is holding a monthly series of MotorcycleRiding 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.

The Doc Wong Riding Clinics are now in it's 15th year!

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

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

SKILL LEVEL 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.  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 ofexpertise required. 

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, tanktop, 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 but not required.* You are responsible for your own safety.

WORKSHOP FORMAT: (Each month is a different riding skills topic)

1. Meet at Doc Wong's Chiropractic oiffice in Carlmont Shopping Center at 9 AM. After signing wavers, Doc Wong gives an hour lecture on the day's riding topic. He'll also go over Riding Within Your Abilities, Group Riding, and Road Manners.* You'll be asked to fill out an optional survey for riding feedback and health issues. Then we will be split up into small groups with ride leader volunteers to lead you thru the hills.* 

2. The Ride: 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 theride. As volunteer riders, they are often very willing to help you inany 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'tcontinue until everyone has arrived.

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

Ride Route:* http://tinyurl.com/6gs5yu

From Dr. Wong's office up to Woodside Road, up Kings Mountain Road, down Tunitas Creek Road and a short stop at the San Gregorio Road. Continue on Stage Road to the town of Pescadero to Cloverdale, Gazos Creek Road to Hwy 1. Then down Hwy 1 to Davenport for lunch. After lunch, it's south on Highway 1 to Bonny Doone Road, right on Smith Grade to Empire Grade, down Jamison Creek Road to Boulder Creek, then up Hwy 9 to the corner of Hwy 9 and Skyline at the rest stop 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!

Doc Wong Basic Suspension Workshop Part 1--Nov 8 Fri Night!

(http://www.freeimagehosting.net/t/87895.jpg) (http://www.freeimagehosting.net/87895)

Hi,

You're invited the next Basic Suspension Part One Workshop!

I'm hyper-excited, this workshop will demystify and really enhance your knowledge of suspension setup. It is geared for those of you who are neophytes in suspension to those of you who want to know more about how set up your bike properly!

One month there was even a guy that flew from Colorado to attend the workshop and flew back the next morning!

What: Basic Suspension Part One
When: Friday, Nov 8, 2013, 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm
Where: Doc Wong's Full Motion Chiropractic Office
          Carlmont Village Shopping Center
          1021 Alameda De Las Pulgas
          Belmont, CA 94002
Cost: $0.00
How to sign up:  just e-mail me at: docwong@aol.com

About the topic, "Basic Suspension Setup": Worksheets have been made up with pertinent data that will be very simple and understandable. I will even have basic terminology defined so that you will know the terms and how they apply to making your bike feel good, bad, bumpy, springy, etc. The workshop will give you a very good understanding of how a suspension works and what you need to do to your bike to improve it's handling characteristics.

Workshop format:  

1.  Basic terms with demonstrations on a sport bike. I'll go over each term one by one and demonstrate them so that you will see them in action.

2.  Adjustments and how they effect the handling of your motorcycle and how you can do them on your bike.

3.  Poor handling characteristics due to "mis-adjustments" and how they can be remedied.

The workshop will be kept simple enough to ensure that when you leave, you'll have a very good understanding of how a suspension works and an idea of how to adjust your own bike. You'll have handouts and worksheets to make notes on too!

Due to the content of the materials presented, parental guidance is suggested as your enhanced understanding of how your suspension works and its subsequent demystification may bring about wide grins!

We do have to limit the number of riders to 40, due to the fact that we want everyone to see how the adjustments are made on the motorcycle.  

Want to use your bike as the demo bike for the evening? E-mail me with the specifics of your bike:  Make, model, year and if it has adjustable front and back preload.

Doc Wong Braking Confidence & Skills Workshop! Th, Dec 5, 6:30PM

(http://www.freeimagehosting.net/t/87895.jpg) (http://www.freeimagehosting.net/87895)

Hi,

I'm sure you're aware how to brake effectively is as important a skill as all of the other skills necessary for smooth, confident and safe riding.  I'm finding that a lot of riders can improve their skills in how and when to apply the brakes.  There is definitely a safety issue with the incorrect use of the brakes.  This causes either increased braking distances and at worst locking up the brakes prematurely, sliding out or crashing.

It's one of those skills that a lot of riders don't think of until the SHTF.  In this very unique clinic I'll be covering key points and techniques that every rider should know such as:  

Emergency Braking, Threshold Braking and Locking up the Front tire (how not to)
Braking at the limits of traction: How best to avoid crashing
Braking and Corner Entry Speed: How to Smoothly and Effectively Transition from one to the other
Critical Dos and Don'ts regarding Braking
Braking While In a Turn
Trail-braking
What Brake To Use: Front vas Rear brakes
Engine Braking
All About ABS
Braking and Downshifting
Downhill Braking

Improving riding confidence comes with knowing, applying and practicing the basic skills of riding.  With improved knowledge and skill anyone can become a smoother and safer rider.  I hope to present this vital topic to you in a way that truly improves your understanding and ability to apply this while riding and braking.

Hi,

You're invited to the next:  Basic Suspension Workshop - Part 2

Here's the only catch:  It's limited to 35 riders because we will be taking apart and examining the internals of a set of forks.  Yes, you'll see the innards of the thing and see how it works to gain a deeper understanding of how suspension works.  Those who attended the last Basic Suspension Workshop (Level 1) will get first priority.  

One month there was even a guy that flew from Colorado to attend the workshop and flew back the next morning!

The Suspension Seminar Part 2, should be extraordinarily interesting tonight, I will go through the normal presentation portion of the program and will vary from the previous format by adding a lab where I'll be setting up a folding card table to perform a complete "piece by piece" dissection process on a full front fork assembly, and a rear shock assembly, while the students observe.  We'll be identifying the function of each individual item, as it's removed.  Should be a very educational experience, and rare opportunity for the riders in attendance.  I'm excited about implementing this new "twist" on the suspension training program!

I'm very pleased with the materials that I've put together so far, as I believe they will be quite effective at directly addressing the questions and issues that most motorcyclists have regarding the 'black magic' of setting up their compression and rebound adjustments, as well as other related aspects of suspension tuning.

Having attended Suspension Seminar Part 1 is not a prerequisite for coming to Part 2.

You'll also get a working knowledge of how compression and rebound works on a bike by actually adjusting the suspension.

"The format for The "PART 2" seminar looks like this:
******************************************************
1. Spring "Preload": "Setting proper "SAG", a quick review"
2. Compression & Rebound : "Solving the mystery"
3. Dissembling a set of forks and examining it's internals
4. Advanced suspension tuning: "Going beyond the factory": Wheelbase, Fork tube height. Fork oil level/viscosity
5. Troubleshooting common bike handling complaints (student contribution)
6. Cartridge fork dissembly
7. Final Question & Answer session

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

Dr. Harry Wong, a prominent Belmont chiropractor and extremely knowledgeable sport rider, is holding a monthly series of MotorcycleRiding 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.

The Doc Wong Riding Clinics are now in it's 15th year!

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

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

SKILL LEVEL 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.  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 ofexpertise required. 

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, tanktop, 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 but not required.* You are responsible for your own safety.

WORKSHOP FORMAT: (Each month is a different riding skills topic)

1. Meet at Doc Wong's Chiropractic oiffice in Carlmont Shopping Center at 9 AM. After signing wavers, Doc Wong gives an hour lecture on the day's riding topic. He'll also go over Riding Within Your Abilities, Group Riding, and Road Manners.* You'll be asked to fill out an optional survey for riding feedback and health issues. Then we will be split up into small groups with ride leader volunteers to lead you thru the hills.* 

2. The Ride: 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 theride. As volunteer riders, they are often very willing to help you inany 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'tcontinue until everyone has arrived.

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

Ride Route:* http://tinyurl.com/6gs5yu

From Dr. Wong's office up to Woodside Road, up Kings Mountain Road, down Tunitas Creek Road and a short stop at the San Gregorio Road. Continue on Stage Road to the town of Pescadero to Cloverdale, Gazos Creek Road to Hwy 1. Then down Hwy 1 to Davenport for lunch. After lunch, it's south on Highway 1 to Bonny Doone Road, right on Smith Grade to Empire Grade, down Jamison Creek Road to Boulder Creek, then up Hwy 9 to the corner of Hwy 9 and Skyline at the rest stop 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!

Doc Wong Basic Suspension Workshop Part 1--Jan 17 Fri Night!

(http://www.freeimagehosting.net/t/87895.jpg) (http://www.freeimagehosting.net/87895)

Hi,

You're invited the next Basic Suspension Part One Workshop!

I'm hyper-excited, this workshop will demystify and really enhance your knowledge of suspension setup. It is geared for those of you who are neophytes in suspension to those of you who want to know more about how set up your bike properly!

One month there was even a guy that flew from Colorado to attend the workshop and flew back the next morning!

What: Basic Suspension Part One
When: Friday, Jan 17, 2014, 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm
Where: Doc Wong's Full Motion Chiropractic Office
          Carlmont Village Shopping Center
          1021 Alameda De Las Pulgas
          Belmont, CA 94002
Cost: $0.00
How to sign up:  just e-mail me at: docwong@aol.com

About the topic, "Basic Suspension Setup": Worksheets have been made up with pertinent data that will be very simple and understandable. I will even have basic terminology defined so that you will know the terms and how they apply to making your bike feel good, bad, bumpy, springy, etc. The workshop will give you a very good understanding of how a suspension works and what you need to do to your bike to improve it's handling characteristics.

Workshop format:  

1.  Basic terms with demonstrations on a sport bike. I'll go over each term one by one and demonstrate them so that you will see them in action.

2.  Adjustments and how they effect the handling of your motorcycle and how you can do them on your bike.

3.  Poor handling characteristics due to "mis-adjustments" and how they can be remedied.

The workshop will be kept simple enough to ensure that when you leave, you'll have a very good understanding of how a suspension works and an idea of how to adjust your own bike. You'll have handouts and worksheets to make notes on too!

Due to the content of the materials presented, parental guidance is suggested as your enhanced understanding of how your suspension works and its subsequent demystification may bring about wide grins!

We do have to limit the number of riders to 40, due to the fact that we want everyone to see how the adjustments are made on the motorcycle.  

Want to use your bike as the demo bike for the evening? E-mail me with the specifics of your bike:  Make, model, year and if it has adjustable front and back preload.

ride comfortably.

Riding Positions will include optimal positions for street, sport, *
toruing, racing and dirt or dual sport riding. *Which positions *

Hi,

I am SO excited to offer this special workshop!

Our special guest speaker is a retired Special Operations Intelligence Officer with over 26 years field experience in high-risk, hostile and even behind enemy lines experience. Very few people in the world have extensive knowledge and experience in how to survive in difficult situations.

Ever planning on doing a motorcycle trip into another country? You'll want to know what he has to say to stay safe, recognize and avoid trouble and what would ever be the best
plan of action in case something bad happens.

He's been on every continent with extensive experience in how to first of all, stay out of trouble and if the SHTF, what do you then do. Did you know that if you were ever handcuffed or tied with duct tape that you could easily break out of them without tools? He'll show us how in this workshop!

While there is no charge for this workshop, signup early as seating is limited.

Doc Wong Braking Confidence & Skills Workshop! Th, Feb 13, 6:30PM

(http://www.freeimagehosting.net/t/87895.jpg) (http://www.freeimagehosting.net/87895)

Hi,

I'm sure you're aware how to brake effectively is as important a skill as all of the other skills necessary for smooth, confident and safe riding.  I'm finding that a lot of riders can improve their skills in how and when to apply the brakes.  There is definitely a safety issue with the incorrect use of the brakes.  This causes either increased braking distances and at worst locking up the brakes prematurely, sliding out or crashing.

It's one of those skills that a lot of riders don't think of until the SHTF.  In this very unique clinic I'll be covering key points and techniques that every rider should know such as:  

Emergency Braking, Threshold Braking and Locking up the Front tire (how not to)
Braking at the limits of traction: How best to avoid crashing
Braking and Corner Entry Speed: How to Smoothly and Effectively Transition from one to the other
Critical Dos and Don'ts regarding Braking
Braking While In a Turn
Trail-braking
What Brake To Use: Front vas Rear brakes
Engine Braking
All About ABS
Braking and Downshifting
Downhill Braking

Improving riding confidence comes with knowing, applying and practicing the basic skills of riding.  With improved knowledge and skill anyone can become a smoother and safer rider.  I hope to present this vital topic to you in a way that truly improves your understanding and ability to apply this while riding and braking.

The Doc Wong Riding Clinics are now in it's 18 year with now over 40,000 riders having attended!  Is that cool or what?  Anyway welcome to this new clinic, I hope you find it helpful.

Yours in great health, great riding and great fun!

Hi,

You're invited to the next:  Basic Suspension Workshop - Part 2

Here's the only catch:  It's limited to 35 riders because we will be taking apart and examining the internals of a set of forks.  Yes, you'll see the innards of the thing and see how it works to gain a deeper understanding of how suspension works.  Those who attended the last Basic Suspension Workshop (Level 1) will get first priority.  

One month there was even a guy that flew from Colorado to attend the workshop and flew back the next morning!

The Suspension Seminar Part 2, should be extraordinarily interesting tonight, I will go through the normal presentation portion of the program and will vary from the previous format by adding a lab where I'll be setting up a folding card table to perform a complete "piece by piece" dissection process on a full front fork assembly, and a rear shock assembly, while the students observe.  We'll be identifying the function of each individual item, as it's removed.  Should be a very educational experience, and rare opportunity for the riders in attendance.  I'm excited about implementing this new "twist" on the suspension training program!

I'm very pleased with the materials that I've put together so far, as I believe they will be quite effective at directly addressing the questions and issues that most motorcyclists have regarding the 'black magic' of setting up their compression and rebound adjustments, as well as other related aspects of suspension tuning.

on different bikes in differing conditons along with what needs to be *
changed to ergonomically fit your bike to you. *Also, I'll cover the *
most common neck, back and wrist problems I see and what you can do to *
ride comfortably.

Riding Positions will include optimal positions for street, sport, *
toruing, racing and dirt or dual sport riding. *Which positions *
produce optimum performance and which get riders into trouble along *
with which causes the most pain and what to do about it. *I'll *
demonstate on a couple of very different bikes, a sport bike and an *
upright dual sport bike. *That way I can demonstrate the range of *
riding positions and the range of ergonomic adjustments you can do to *
your bike. Find out how certain riding styles and poor bike setup can *
be hazardous and how to solve them. The end result is you being more *
comfortable on your bike with less fatigue and having more fun!

The ergonomics part of this workshop will cover how to adjust your *
bike to your body and style of riding. The ergonomics of different *
bike types and body types will be addressed and participants will have *
a working knowledge of what do do with their bikes *
adjustments.Optimize your bike for your riding style. *Adjusting *
levers, foot controls, handlber bar placements

I'll also cover exercises and stretches for you neck, back and wrists.

After the talk and demonstrations, etc we'll go outside where *
you'll get on your bike and I'll coach you on body position and make *
suggestions on the ergonomics of your motorcycle.


Ride street, ride track, ride dirt, trials.....ride.....well!

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

Dr. Harry Wong, a prominent Belmont chiropractor and extremely knowledgeable sport rider, is holding a monthly series of MotorcycleRiding 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.

The Doc Wong Riding Clinics are now in it's 15th year!

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

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

SKILL LEVEL 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.  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 ofexpertise required. 

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, tanktop, 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 but not required.* You are responsible for your own safety.

WORKSHOP FORMAT: (Each month is a different riding skills topic)

1. Meet at Doc Wong's Chiropractic oiffice in Carlmont Shopping Center at 9 AM. After signing wavers, Doc Wong gives an hour lecture on the day's riding topic. He'll also go over Riding Within Your Abilities, Group Riding, and Road Manners.* You'll be asked to fill out an optional survey for riding feedback and health issues. Then we will be split up into small groups with ride leader volunteers to lead you thru the hills.* 

2. The Ride: 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 theride. As volunteer riders, they are often very willing to help you inany 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'tcontinue until everyone has arrived.

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

Ride Route:* http://tinyurl.com/6gs5yu

From Dr. Wong's office up to Woodside Road, up Kings Mountain Road, down Tunitas Creek Road and a short stop at the San Gregorio Road. Continue on Stage Road to the town of Pescadero to Cloverdale, Gazos Creek Road to Hwy 1. Then down Hwy 1 to Davenport for lunch. After lunch, it's south on Highway 1 to Bonny Doone Road, right on Smith Grade to Empire Grade, down Jamison Creek Road to Boulder Creek, then up Hwy 9 to the corner of Hwy 9 and Skyline at the rest stop 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!

Doc Wong Adventure Dual Sport Clinic - April 11/13!

(http://www.freeimagehosting.net/t/87895.jpg) (http://www.freeimagehosting.net/87895)

Hi,

Due to some very popular requests, I've created this special clinic  
for adventurous dual-sport, dirt and street riders. Basically anyone  
who wants to improve their dirt skills. From the consistent feedback we've  
been getting, the new format has been getting impressive results with riders gaining greatly improved dirt skills and confidence!

If you're a street rider and don't have a dual-sport or dirt bike,  
come to Friday night's lecture and demonstrations as I guarantee that  
it will be an educational experience for you.  Though I'd have to say  
that I've had a rider show up Sunday with a full dress Harley Davidson  
motorcycle that did the dirt clinic. He did well too!

Not only will you learn Doc Wong's 12 Basic Fundamentals of Dirt  
Riding Skills, but you'll get the most important data point of riding any  
motorcycle competently.   I'll cover vital topics and drills dealing  
with coordinated balance, controlled sliding of the rear AND front  
wheels, controlled wheelies, hillclimbs and much more.

So how do I get newer Adventure Dirt/Dual-Sport riders to, safely, do  
things like lock up the front wheel, do wheelies etc all in one  
morning of drills????  Attend Friday night's lecture and demonstration  
and find out.

If you're a more experienced dirt rider I'd appreciate any help you'd  
like to give in leading a group, etc.

This clinic is held on two separate days.

**Please note: Friday night's  
talk is a prerequisite to Sunday's drilling and ride.

Cost: $20.00 donation to the Doc Wong Riding Clinics for clinic costs. Sound too good to be true?  Yes, but it's true and
has been for the last 18 years of the Doc Wong Riding Clinics with now
over 40,000 riders having attended my various events! The $20 donation
is appreciated and if you want to donate more, that would be
wonderful, but you won't be asked to.

Part A: Friday evening, 6:30 PM will be a 2 hour talk at my  
chiropractic office:

Full Motion Chiropractic
1021 Alameda de las Pulgas
Belmont, CA 94002
(650) 365-7775

Part B: Each ride has been full of wonderful surprises, a true  
adventure! This clinic promises more of the same. The details of the  
Sunday adventure ride will be announced at the Friday evening talk at my office at Full Motion Chiropractic.  

Don't know if you have the skills to do the ride?  Come Friday night to find out more.


TO REGISTER:  E-mail me ASAP at:  Docwong@aol.com  (limited to the first
40 riders, so if you register and can't make it, please let me know  
ASAP as there will be a waiting list)

Anyone is welcome to come to the evening "Dirt Riding Workshop-Talks  
and Demonstrations" part of the clinic and is not limited in numbers,  
however the practical "Dirt Ride Drills and Dirt Ride" part of the  
clinic is limited to 40 riders.

----------------
WHAT TO BRING TO THE DIRT RIDE

A. Snacks, lunch and water.

B. Gear: Minimally have a good helmet, gloves, heavy boots, blue jeans  
and a long sleeved shirt. Full dirt riding gear is ideal: Dirt helmet,  
goggles, chest protector, elbow guards, gloves, knee pads and dirt  
boots. Regular dual sport riding and touring gear is ok too, but be  
aware it may get hot.

C. Mechanical: bike in good order, knobbies will work best, however  
dual-sport tires will work also. Street bike tires will provide a  
unique experience! ;-)

D. There will be nowhere to drop off luggage, so plan on doing the  
entire ride with what you have. This is afterall an "Adventure" ride,  
so if you want, bring luggage to simulate a ride.

E. Type of bike.  It has to be a legal dual sport bike that can go at  
least 170 miles.  Terrain will be a combination of street and dirt.    
You can being a smaller dual sport bike, but make sure to being extra  
gas or make friends with a fellow with a big gas tank.  There are  
always several 1200 GS Adventurers there with over 9 gallons of gas.

Doc Wong Braking Confidence & Skills Workshop! Fri, Apr 18, 6:30PM

(http://s25.postimg.org/i9nydv36j/Doc_Wong_Logo_1.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/i9nydv36j/)

Hi,

I'm sure you're aware how to brake effectively is as important a skill as all of the other skills necessary for smooth, confident and safe riding.  I'm finding that a lot of riders can improve their skills in how and when to apply the brakes.  There is definitely a safety issue with the incorrect use of the brakes.  This causes either increased braking distances and at worst locking up the brakes prematurely, sliding out or crashing.

It's one of those skills that a lot of riders don't think of until the SHTF.  In this very unique clinic I'll be covering key points and techniques that every rider should know such as:  

Emergency Braking, Threshold Braking and Locking up the Front tire (how not to)
Braking at the limits of traction: How best to avoid crashing
Braking and Corner Entry Speed: How to Smoothly and Effectively Transition from one to the other
Critical Dos and Don'ts regarding Braking
Braking While In a Turn
Trail-braking
What Brake To Use: Front vas Rear brakes
Engine Braking
All About ABS
Braking and Downshifting
Downhill Braking

Improving riding confidence comes with knowing, applying and practicing the basic skills of riding.  With improved knowledge and skill anyone can become a smoother and safer rider.  I hope to present this vital topic to you in a way that truly improves your understanding and ability to apply this while riding and braking.

The Doc Wong Riding Clinics are now in it's 18 year with now over 40,000 riders having attended!  Is that cool or what?  Anyway welcome to this new clinic, I hope you find it helpful.

Yours in great health, great riding and great fun!

Hi,

I am SO excited to offer this special workshop!

Our special guest speaker is a retired Special Operations Intelligence Officer with over 26 years field experience in high-risk, hostile and even behind enemy lines experience. Very few people in the world have extensive knowledge and experience in how to survive in difficult situations.

Ever planning on doing a motorcycle trip into another country? You'll want to know what he has to say to stay safe, recognize and avoid trouble and what would ever be the best
plan of action in case something bad happens.

He's been on every continent with extensive experience in how to first of all, stay out of trouble and if the SHTF, what do you then do. Did you know that if you were ever handcuffed or tied with duct tape that you could easily break out of them without tools? He'll show us how in this workshop!

While there is no charge for this workshop, signup early as seating is limited.

Hi,

You're invited the next Basic Suspension Part One Workshop!

I'm hyper-excited, this workshop will demystify and really enhance your knowledge of suspension setup. It is geared for those of you who are neophytes in suspension to those of you who want to know more about how set up your bike properly!

One month there was even a guy that flew from Colorado to attend the workshop and flew back the next morning!

What: Basic Suspension Part One
When: Friday, May 23, 2014, 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm
Where: Doc Wong's Full Motion Chiropractic Office
          Carlmont Village Shopping Center
          1021 Alameda De Las Pulgas
          Belmont, CA 94002
Cost: $0.00
How to sign up:  just e-mail me at: docwong@aol.com

About the topic, "Basic Suspension Setup": Worksheets have been made up with pertinent data that will be very simple and understandable. I will even have basic terminology defined so that you will know the terms and how they apply to making your bike feel good, bad, bumpy, springy, etc. The workshop will give you a very good understanding of how a suspension works and what you need to do to your bike to improve it's handling characteristics.

Workshop format:  

1.  Basic terms with demonstrations on a sport bike. I'll go over each term one by one and demonstrate them so that you will see them in action.

2.  Adjustments and how they effect the handling of your motorcycle and how you can do them on your bike.

3.  Poor handling characteristics due to "mis-adjustments" and how they can be remedied.

The workshop will be kept simple enough to ensure that when you leave, you'll have a very good understanding of how a suspension works and an idea of how to adjust your own bike. You'll have handouts and worksheets to make notes on too!

Due to the content of the materials presented, parental guidance is suggested as your enhanced understanding of how your suspension works and its subsequent demystification may bring about wide grins!

We do have to limit the number of riders to 40, due to the fact that we want everyone to see how the adjustments are made on the motorcycle.  

Want to use your bike as the demo bike for the evening? E-mail me with the specifics of your bike:  Make, model, year and if it has adjustable front and back preload.

Doc Wong Braking Confidence & Skills Workshop! Fri, Jun 13, 6:30PM

(http://s25.postimg.org/i9nydv36j/Doc_Wong_Logo_1.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/i9nydv36j/)

Hi,

I'm sure you're aware how to brake effectively is as important a skill as all of the other skills necessary for smooth, confident and safe riding.  I'm finding that a lot of riders can improve their skills in how and when to apply the brakes.  There is definitely a safety issue with the incorrect use of the brakes.  This causes either increased braking distances and at worst locking up the brakes prematurely, sliding out or crashing.

It's one of those skills that a lot of riders don't think of until the SHTF.  In this very unique clinic I'll be covering key points and techniques that every rider should know such as:  

Emergency Braking, Threshold Braking and Locking up the Front tire (how not to)
Braking at the limits of traction: How best to avoid crashing
Braking and Corner Entry Speed: How to Smoothly and Effectively Transition from one to the other
Critical Dos and Don'ts regarding Braking
Braking While In a Turn
Trail-braking
What Brake To Use: Front vas Rear brakes
Engine Braking
All About ABS
Braking and Downshifting
Downhill Braking

Improving riding confidence comes with knowing, applying and practicing the basic skills of riding.  With improved knowledge and skill anyone can become a smoother and safer rider.  I hope to present this vital topic to you in a way that truly improves your understanding and ability to apply this while riding and braking.

The Doc Wong Riding Clinics are now in it's 18 year with now over 40,000 riders having attended!  Is that cool or what?  Anyway welcome to this new clinic, I hope you find it helpful.

Yours in great health, great riding and great fun!

Hi,

You're invited to the next:  Basic Suspension Workshop - Part 2

Here's the only catch:  It's limited to 35 riders because we will be taking apart and examining the internals of a set of forks.  Yes, you'll see the innards of the thing and see how it works to gain a deeper understanding of how suspension works.  Those who attended the last Basic Suspension Workshop (Level 1) will get first priority.  

One month there was even a guy that flew from Colorado to attend the workshop and flew back the next morning!

The Suspension Seminar Part 2, should be extraordinarily interesting tonight, I will go through the normal presentation portion of the program and will vary from the previous format by adding a lab where I'll be setting up a folding card table to perform a complete "piece by piece" dissection process on a full front fork assembly, and a rear shock assembly, while the students observe.  We'll be identifying the function of each individual item, as it's removed.  Should be a very educational experience, and rare opportunity for the riders in attendance.  I'm excited about implementing this new "twist" on the suspension training program!

I'm very pleased with the materials that I've put together so far, as I believe they will be quite effective at directly addressing the questions and issues that most motorcyclists have regarding the 'black magic' of setting up their compression and rebound adjustments, as well as other related aspects of suspension tuning.

Having attended Suspension Seminar Part 1 is not a prerequisite for coming to Part 2.

You'll also get a working knowledge of how compression and rebound works on a bike by actually adjusting the suspension.

"The format for The "PART 2" seminar looks like this:
******************************************************
1. Spring "Preload": "Setting proper "SAG", a quick review"
2. Compression & Rebound : "Solving the mystery"
3. Dissembling a set of forks and examining it's internals
4. Advanced suspension tuning: "Going beyond the factory": Wheelbase, Fork tube height. Fork oil level/viscosity
5. Troubleshooting common bike handling complaints (student contribution)
6. Cartridge fork dissembly
7. Final Question & Answer session

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

Dr. Harry Wong, a prominent Belmont chiropractor and extremely knowledgeable sport rider, is holding a monthly series of MotorcycleRiding 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.

The Doc Wong Riding Clinics are now in it's 15th year!

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

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

SKILL LEVEL 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.  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 ofexpertise required. 

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, tanktop, 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 but not required. You are responsible for your own safety.

WORKSHOP FORMAT: (Each month is a different riding skills topic)

1. Meet at Doc Wong's Chiropractic oiffice in Carlmont Shopping Center at 9 AM. After signing wavers, Doc Wong gives an hour lecture on the day's riding topic. He'll also go over Riding Within Your Abilities, Group Riding, and Road Manners. You'll be asked to fill out an optional survey for riding feedback and health issues. Then we will be split up into small groups with ride leader volunteers to lead you thru the hills.

2. The Ride: 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 theride. As volunteer riders, they are often very willing to help you inany 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'tcontinue until everyone has arrived.

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

Ride Route: http://tinyurl.com/6gs5yu

From Dr. Wong's office up to Woodside Road, up Kings Mountain Road, down Tunitas Creek Road and a short stop at the San Gregorio Road. Continue on Stage Road to the town of Pescadero to Cloverdale, Gazos Creek Road to Hwy 1. Then down Hwy 1 to Davenport for lunch. After lunch, it's south on Highway 1 to Bonny Doone Road, right on Smith Grade to Empire Grade, down Jamison Creek Road to Boulder Creek, then up Hwy 9 to the corner of Hwy 9 and Skyline at the rest stop 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!

Doc Wong Braking Confidence & Skills Workshop! Th, July 10, 6:30PM

(http://s25.postimg.org/i9nydv36j/Doc_Wong_Logo_1.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/i9nydv36j/)

Hi,

I'm sure you're aware how to brake effectively is as important a skill as all of the other skills necessary for smooth, confident and safe riding.  I'm finding that a lot of riders can improve their skills in how and when to apply the brakes.  There is definitely a safety issue with the incorrect use of the brakes.  This causes either increased braking distances and at worst locking up the brakes prematurely, sliding out or crashing.

It's one of those skills that a lot of riders don't think of until the SHTF.  In this very unique clinic I'll be covering key points and techniques that every rider should know such as:  

Emergency Braking, Threshold Braking and Locking up the Front tire (how not to)
Braking at the limits of traction: How best to avoid crashing
Braking and Corner Entry Speed: How to Smoothly and Effectively Transition from one to the other
Critical Dos and Don'ts regarding Braking
Braking While In a Turn
Trail-braking
What Brake To Use: Front vas Rear brakes
Engine Braking
All About ABS
Braking and Downshifting
Downhill Braking

Improving riding confidence comes with knowing, applying and practicing the basic skills of riding.  With improved knowledge and skill anyone can become a smoother and safer rider.  I hope to present this vital topic to you in a way that truly improves your understanding and ability to apply this while riding and braking.

The Doc Wong Riding Clinics are now in it's 18 year with now over 40,000 riders having attended!  Is that cool or what?  Anyway welcome to this new clinic, I hope you find it helpful.

Yours in great health, great riding and great fun!

This workshop is designed to help you make the necessary adjustments to your riding positons and to your bike to optimize your personal efficiency and comfort of riding your motorcycle in all conditions.

To achieve this, I'll be covering different riding styles or positions
on different bikes in differing conditions along with what needs to be changed to ergonomically fit your bike to you. Also, I'll cover the most common neck, back and wrist problems I see and what you can do to ride comfortably.

Riding Positions will include optimal positions for street, sport,
torquing, racing and dirt or dual sport riding. Which positions
produce optimum performance and which get riders into trouble along with which causes the most pain and what to do about it.

I'll demonstrate on a couple of very different bikes, a sport bike and an upright dual sport bike. That way I can demonstrate the range of riding positions and the range of ergonomic adjustments you can do to your bike. Find out how certain riding styles and poor bike setup can be hazardous and how to solve them. The end result is you being more comfortable on your bike with less fatigue and having more fun!

The ergonomics part of this workshop will cover how to adjust your bike to your body and style of riding. The ergonomics of different bike types and body types will be addressed and participants will have a working knowledge of what do do with their bikes adjustments.Optimize your bike for your riding style. Adjusting levers, foot controls, handlebar bar placements

I'll also cover exercises and stretches for you neck, back and wrists.

Hi,

I am SO excited to offer this special workshop!

Our special guest speaker is a retired Special Operations Intelligence Officer with over 26 years field experience in high-risk, hostile and even behind enemy lines experience. Very few people in the world have extensive knowledge and experience in how to survive in difficult situations.

Ever planning on doing a motorcycle trip into another country? You'll want to know what he has to say to stay safe, recognize and avoid trouble and what would ever be the best
plan of action in case something bad happens.

He's been on every continent with extensive experience in how to first of all, stay out of trouble and if the SHTF, what do you then do. Did you know that if you were ever handcuffed or tied with duct tape that you could easily break out of them without tools? He'll show us how in this workshop!

While there is no charge for this workshop, signup early as seating is limited.

Hi,

I'm sure you're aware how to brake effectively is as important a skill as all of the other skills necessary for smooth, confident and safe riding.  I'm finding that a lot of riders can improve their skills in how and when to apply the brakes.  There is definitely a safety issue with the incorrect use of the brakes.  This causes either increased braking distances and at worst locking up the brakes prematurely, sliding out or crashing.

It's one of those skills that a lot of riders don't think of until the SHTF.  In this very unique clinic I'll be covering key points and techniques that every rider should know such as:  

Emergency Braking, Threshold Braking and Locking up the Front tire (how not to)
Braking at the limits of traction: How best to avoid crashing
Braking and Corner Entry Speed: How to Smoothly and Effectively Transition from one to the other
Critical Dos and Don'ts regarding Braking

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

Dr. Harry Wong, a prominent Belmont chiropractor and extremely knowledgeable sport rider, is holding a monthly series of MotorcycleRiding 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.

The Doc Wong Riding Clinics are now in it's 15th year!

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

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

SKILL LEVEL 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.  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 ofexpertise required. 

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, tanktop, 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 but not required. You are responsible for your own safety.

WORKSHOP FORMAT: (Each month is a different riding skills topic)

1. Meet at Doc Wong's Chiropractic oiffice in Carlmont Shopping Center at 9 AM. After signing wavers, Doc Wong gives an hour lecture on the day's riding topic. He'll also go over Riding Within Your Abilities, Group Riding, and Road Manners. You'll be asked to fill out an optional survey for riding feedback and health issues. Then we will be split up into small groups with ride leader volunteers to lead you thru the hills.

2. The Ride: 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 theride. As volunteer riders, they are often very willing to help you inany 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'tcontinue until everyone has arrived.

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

Ride Route: http://tinyurl.com/6gs5yu

From Dr. Wong's office up to Woodside Road, up Kings Mountain Road, down Tunitas Creek Road and a short stop at the San Gregorio Road. Continue on Stage Road to the town of Pescadero to Cloverdale, Gazos Creek Road to Hwy 1. Then down Hwy 1 to Davenport for lunch. After lunch, it's south on Highway 1 to Bonny Doone Road, right on Smith Grade to Empire Grade, down Jamison Creek Road to Boulder Creek, then up Hwy 9 to the corner of Hwy 9 and Skyline at the rest stop 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!

(http://s25.postimg.org/i9nydv36j/Doc_Wong_Logo_1.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/i9nydv36j/)

Topic: Basic Suspension Workshop -  Part 2

          Carlmont Shopping Center (Next to Baskin Robbins Ice Cream)
          1021 Alameda De Las Pulgas
          Belmont, CA 94002

Time: Thursday night, August 7, 2014 from 6:30 PM-8:30 PM

Hi,

You're invited to the next:  Basic Suspension Workshop - Part 2

Here's the only catch:  It's limited to 35 riders because we will be taking apart and examining the internals of a set of forks.  Yes, you'll see the innards of the thing and see how it works to gain a deeper understanding of how suspension works.  Those who attended the last Basic Suspension Workshop (Level 1) will get first priority.  

One month there was even a guy that flew from Colorado to attend the workshop and flew back the next morning!

The Suspension Seminar Part 2, should be extraordinarily interesting tonight, I will go through the normal presentation portion of the program and will vary from the previous format by adding a lab where I'll be setting up a folding card table to perform a complete "piece by piece" dissection process on a full front fork assembly, and a rear shock assembly, while the students observe.  We'll be identifying the function of each individual item, as it's removed.  Should be a very educational experience, and rare opportunity for the riders in attendance.  I'm excited about implementing this new "twist" on the suspension training program!

I'm very pleased with the materials that I've put together so far, as I believe they will be quite effective at directly addressing the questions and issues that most motorcyclists have regarding the 'black magic' of setting up their compression and rebound adjustments, as well as other related aspects of suspension tuning.

Having attended Suspension Seminar Part 1 is not a prerequisite for coming to Part 2.

You'll also get a working knowledge of how compression and rebound works on a bike by actually adjusting the suspension.

"The format for The "PART 2" seminar looks like this:
******************************************************
1. Spring "Preload": "Setting proper "SAG", a quick review"
2. Compression & Rebound : "Solving the mystery"
3. Dissembling a set of forks and examining it's internals
4. Advanced suspension tuning: "Going beyond the factory": Wheelbase, Fork tube height. Fork oil level/viscosity
5. Troubleshooting common bike handling complaints (student contribution)
6. Cartridge fork dissembly
7. Final Question & Answer session

(http://s25.postimg.org/i9nydv36j/Doc_Wong_Logo_1.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/i9nydv36j/)

Hi,

You're invited the next Basic Suspension Part One Workshop!

I'm hyper-excited, this workshop will demystify and really enhance your knowledge of suspension setup. It is geared for those of you who are neophytes in suspension to those of you who want to know more about how set up your bike properly!

One month there was even a guy that flew from Colorado to attend the workshop and flew back the next morning!

What: Basic Suspension Part One
When: Friday, Sept 19, 2014, 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm
Where: Doc Wong's Full Motion Chiropractic Office
          Carlmont Village Shopping Center
          1021 Alameda De Las Pulgas
          Belmont, CA 94002
Cost: $0.00
How to sign up:  just e-mail me at: docwong@aol.com

About the topic, "Basic Suspension Setup": Worksheets have been made up with pertinent data that will be very simple and understandable. I will even have basic terminology defined so that you will know the terms and how they apply to making your bike feel good, bad, bumpy, springy, etc. The workshop will give you a very good understanding of how a suspension works and what you need to do to your bike to improve it's handling characteristics.

Workshop format:  

1.  Basic terms with demonstrations on a sport bike. I'll go over each term one by one and demonstrate them so that you will see them in action.

2.  Adjustments and how they effect the handling of your motorcycle and how you can do them on your bike.

3.  Poor handling characteristics due to "mis-adjustments" and how they can be remedied.

The workshop will be kept simple enough to ensure that when you leave, you'll have a very good understanding of how a suspension works and an idea of how to adjust your own bike. You'll have handouts and worksheets to make notes on too!

Due to the content of the materials presented, parental guidance is suggested as your enhanced understanding of how your suspension works and its subsequent demystification may bring about wide grins!

We do have to limit the number of riders to 40, due to the fact that we want everyone to see how the adjustments are made on the motorcycle.  

Want to use your bike as the demo bike for the evening? E-mail me with the specifics of your bike:  Make, model, year and if it has adjustable front and back preload.

It's one of those skills that a lot of riders don't think of until the SHTF.  In this very unique clinic I'll be covering key points and techniques that every rider should know such as:  

Emergency Braking, Threshold Braking and Locking up the Front tire (how not to)
Braking at the limits of traction: How best to avoid crashing
Braking and Corner Entry Speed: How to Smoothly and Effectively Transition from one to the other
Critical Dos and Don'ts regarding Braking
Braking While In a Turn
Trail-braking
What Brake To Use: Front vas Rear brakes
Engine Braking
All About ABS
Braking and Downshifting
Downhill Braking

Improving riding confidence comes with knowing, applying and practicing the basic skills of riding.  With improved knowledge and skill anyone can become a smoother and safer rider.  I hope to present this vital topic to you in a way that truly improves your understanding and ability to apply this while riding and braking.

The Doc Wong Riding Clinics are now in it's 18 year with now over 40,000 riders having attended!  Is that cool or what?  Anyway welcome to this new clinic, I hope you find it helpful.

Yours in great health, great riding and great fun!

Not only do you get the knowledge necessary to ride with more confidence and less pain, but I'll also personally coach you on your bike.  This is an evening workshop and while we don't go out for a ride on this one, if you bring your bike, you'll get coached on it.

This workshop is designed to help you make the necessary adjustments to your riding positons and to your bike to optimize your personal efficiency and comfort of riding your motorcycle in all conditions.

To achieve this, I'll be covering different riding styles or positions
on different bikes in differing conditions along with what needs to be changed to ergonomically fit your bike to you. Also, I'll cover the most common neck, back and wrist problems I see and what you can do to ride comfortably.

Riding Positions will include optimal positions for street, sport,
torquing, racing and dirt or dual sport riding. Which positions
produce optimum performance and which get riders into trouble along with which causes the most pain and what to do about it.

I'll demonstrate on a couple of very different bikes, a sport bike and an upright dual sport bike. That way I can demonstrate the range of riding positions and the range of ergonomic adjustments you can do to your bike. Find out how certain riding styles and poor bike setup can be hazardous and how to solve them. The end result is you being more comfortable on your bike with less fatigue and having more fun!

The ergonomics part of this workshop will cover how to adjust your bike to your body and style of riding. The ergonomics of different bike types and body types will be addressed and participants will have a working knowledge of what do do with their bikes adjustments.Optimize your bike for your riding style. Adjusting levers, foot controls, handlebar bar placements

I'll also cover exercises and stretches for you neck, back and wrists.

After the talk and demonstrations, etc., we'll go outside where you'll get on your bike and I'll coach you on body position and make suggestions on the ergonomics of your motorcycle.

***Special Doc Wong Presentation: Riding Northern Vietnam on a Honda XR250***

(http://s25.postimg.org/i9nydv36j/Doc_Wong_Logo_1.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/i9nydv36j/)

Meet Ryan Starnes, who's been a personal trainer in Los Altos for 10 years with his modest riding skills embarked on a two week journey thru Northern Vietnam. While many of us dream of riding to distant places on our motorcycles....after the kids are older, Ryan decided to do this before having kids!

Come hear Ryan share with you his stories and experiences of his 1000 mile thru Hanoi and Northern Vietnam's countryside going alongside the China-Vietnam
border. He'll share with us so many of the details of his trip experiences from the logistics to the costs and difficulties he encountered.  Ryan said to me that in going to this emerging third world country with just one other rider, not knowing the language and customs and his one riding buddy, he came out with a fresh viewpoint and perspective in his own life.

Knowing how to really use your GPS can make traveling on your motorcycle an even better experience!  While most of us can easily input an address and use our GPS to navigate to a known location, what about the more complex tasks that your GPS is capable of?  You can do SO much more!

Welcome our guest speaker Cliff Musante, motorcyclist and race track instructor, who has extensive experience with GPS systems and in particular "BaseCamp" which is the software commonly used for all Garmin GPS systems and most others too. 

This is about how to get the most out of using your GPS by using the Garmin program called BaseCamp to manage your GPS.

In this clinic, we'll cover the following topics

Understanding what BaseCamp is
Connecting your GPS
The difference between BaseCamp and GarminExpress
Important distinctions   (Way Points, Routes, BreadCrumbs, Tracks)
Understanding Riding Profiles
Creating a Waypoint
Creating a route
Creating a complex route
Organizing your data
Keeping your GPS clean
Downloading info into GPS
Understanding "Your GPS is going to recalculate the route"
Understanding how BaseCamp "Synch's" with your GPS (It's a lie, BaseCamp
does not sync with your GPS)
Uploading info from your GPS
Accessing a variety of maps
Understanding maps, and versions
Understanding and using OpenSource maps
Understanding the file system on your Garmin
Playing Music on your Garmin
Connecting your garmin to your Communicator, and your phone

As you can see the topics covered is pretty extensive!

Workshop size limited to 25.

Yours in great health, great riding and great fun!

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

Dr. Harry Wong, a prominent Belmont chiropractor and extremely knowledgeable sport rider, is holding a monthly series of MotorcycleRiding 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.

The Doc Wong Riding Clinics are now in it's 15th year!

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

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

SKILL LEVEL 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.  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 ofexpertise required.

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, tanktop, 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 but not required. You are responsible for your own safety.

WORKSHOP FORMAT: (Each month is a different riding skills topic)

1. Meet at Doc Wong's Chiropractic oiffice in Carlmont Shopping Center at 9 AM. After signing wavers, Doc Wong gives an hour lecture on the day's riding topic. He'll also go over Riding Within Your Abilities, Group Riding, and Road Manners. You'll be asked to fill out an optional survey for riding feedback and health issues. Then we will be split up into small groups with ride leader volunteers to lead you thru the hills.

2. The Ride: 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 theride. As volunteer riders, they are often very willing to help you inany 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'tcontinue until everyone has arrived.

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

Ride Route: http://tinyurl.com/6gs5yu (http://tinyurl.com/6gs5yu)

From Dr. Wong's office up to Woodside Road, up Kings Mountain Road, down Tunitas Creek Road and a short stop at the San Gregorio Road. Continue on Stage Road to the town of Pescadero to Cloverdale, Gazos Creek Road to Hwy 1. Then down Hwy 1 to Davenport for lunch. After lunch, it's south on Highway 1 to Bonny Doone Road, right on Smith Grade to Empire Grade, down Jamison Creek Road to Boulder Creek, then up Hwy 9 to the corner of Hwy 9 and Skyline at the rest stop 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!

Doc Wong Basic Suspension Workshop-Part 2, Nov 7 Fri night! 

(http://s25.postimg.org/i9nydv36j/Doc_Wong_Logo_1.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/i9nydv36j/)

Topic: Basic Suspension Workshop -  Part 2

Place: Full Motion Chiropractic http://tinyurl.com/6vp36k3
          Carlmont Shopping Center (Next to Baskin Robbins Ice Cream)
          1021 Alameda De Las Pulgas
          Belmont, CA 94002

Time: Friday night, Nov 7, 2014 from 6:30 PM-8:30 PM

Cost: the cost has doubled  ;-)   ( $0 * 2 = $0 )

How to sign up:  e-mail me at:  docwong@aol.com


Hi,

You're invited to the next:  Basic Suspension Workshop - Part 2

Here's the only catch:  It's limited to 35 riders because we will be taking apart and examining the internals of a set of forks.  Yes, you'll see the innards of the thing and see how it works to gain a deeper understanding of how suspension works.  Those who attended the last Basic Suspension Workshop (Level 1) will get first priority.  

One month there was even a guy that flew from Colorado to attend the workshop and flew back the next morning!

The Suspension Seminar Part 2, should be extraordinarily interesting tonight, I will go through the normal presentation portion of the program and will vary from the previous format by adding a lab where I'll be setting up a folding card table to perform a complete "piece by piece" dissection process on a full front fork assembly, and a rear shock assembly, while the students observe.  We'll be identifying the function of each individual item, as it's removed.  Should be a very educational experience, and rare opportunity for the riders in attendance.  I'm excited about implementing this new "twist" on the suspension training program!

I'm very pleased with the materials that I've put together so far, as I believe they will be quite effective at directly addressing the questions and issues that most motorcyclists have regarding the 'black magic' of setting up their compression and rebound adjustments, as well as other related aspects of suspension tuning.

Having attended Suspension Seminar Part 1 is not a prerequisite for coming to Part 2.

You'll also get a working knowledge of how compression and rebound works on a bike by actually adjusting the suspension.

"The format for The "PART 2" seminar looks like this:
******************************************************
1. Spring "Preload": "Setting proper "SAG", a quick review"
2. Compression & Rebound : "Solving the mystery"
3. Dissembling a set of forks and examining it's internals
4. Advanced suspension tuning: "Going beyond the factory": Wheelbase, Fork tube height. Fork oil level/viscosity
5. Troubleshooting common bike handling complaints (student contribution)
6. Cartridge fork dissembly
7. Final Question & Answer session

Dr. Harry Wong, a prominent Belmont chiropractor and extremely knowledgeable sport rider, is holding a monthly series of MotorcycleRiding 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.

The Doc Wong Riding Clinics are now in it's 15th year!

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

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

SKILL LEVEL 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.  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 ofexpertise required. 

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, tanktop, 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 but not required. You are responsible for your own safety.

WORKSHOP FORMAT: (Each month is a different riding skills topic)

1. Meet at Doc Wong's Chiropractic oiffice in Carlmont Shopping Center at 9 AM. After signing wavers, Doc Wong gives an hour lecture on the day's riding topic. He'll also go over Riding Within Your Abilities, Group Riding, and Road Manners. You'll be asked to fill out an optional survey for riding feedback and health issues. Then we will be split up into small groups with ride leader volunteers to lead you thru the hills.

2. The Ride: 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 theride. As volunteer riders, they are often very willing to help you inany 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'tcontinue until everyone has arrived.

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

Ride Route: http://tinyurl.com/6gs5yu

From Dr. Wong's office up to Woodside Road, up Kings Mountain Road, down Tunitas Creek Road and a short stop at the San Gregorio Road. Continue on Stage Road to the town of Pescadero to Cloverdale, Gazos Creek Road to Hwy 1. Then down Hwy 1 to Davenport for lunch. After lunch, it's south on Highway 1 to Bonny Doone Road, right on Smith Grade to Empire Grade, down Jamison Creek Road to Boulder Creek, then up Hwy 9 to the corner of Hwy 9 and Skyline at the rest stop 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!

Doc Wong Braking Confidence & Skills Workshop! Fri, Dec 5, 6:30PM

(http://s25.postimg.org/i9nydv36j/Doc_Wong_Logo_1.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/i9nydv36j/)

Hi,

I'm sure you're aware how to brake effectively is as important a skill as all of the other skills necessary for smooth, confident and safe riding.  I'm finding that a lot of riders can improve their skills in how and when to apply the brakes.  There is definitely a safety issue with the incorrect use of the brakes.  This causes either increased braking distances and at worst locking up the brakes prematurely, sliding out or crashing.

It's one of those skills that a lot of riders don't think of until the SHTF.  In this very unique clinic I'll be covering key points and techniques that every rider should know such as:  

Emergency Braking, Threshold Braking and Locking up the Front tire (how not to)
Braking at the limits of traction: How best to avoid crashing
Braking and Corner Entry Speed: How to Smoothly and Effectively Transition from one to the other
Critical Dos and Don'ts regarding Braking
Braking While In a Turn
Trail-braking
What Brake To Use: Front vas Rear brakes
Engine Braking
All About ABS
Braking and Downshifting
Downhill Braking

Improving riding confidence comes with knowing, applying and practicing the basic skills of riding.  With improved knowledge and skill anyone can become a smoother and safer rider.  I hope to present this vital topic to you in a way that truly improves your understanding and ability to apply this while riding and braking.

The Doc Wong Riding Clinics are now in it's 18 year with now over 40,000 riders having attended!  Is that cool or what?  Anyway welcome to this new clinic, I hope you find it helpful.

Yours in great health, great riding and great fun!

Knowing how to really use your GPS can make traveling on your motorcycle an even
better experience!  While most of us can easily input an address and use our GPS
to navigate to a known location, what about the more complex tasks that your GPS
is capable of?  You can do SO much more!

Welcome our guest speaker Cliff Musante, motorcyclist and race track instructor, 
who has extensive experience with GPS systems and in particular "BaseCamp" which
is the software commonly used for all Garmin GPS systems and most others too. 

This is about how to get the most out of using your GPS by using the Garmin
program called BaseCamp to manage your GPS.

In this clinic, we'll cover the following topics

Understanding what BaseCamp is
Connecting your GPS
The difference between BaseCamp and GarminExpress
Important distinctions   (Way Points, Routes, BreadCrumbs, Tracks)
Understanding Riding Profiles
Creating a Waypoint
Creating a route
Creating a complex route
Organizing your data
Keeping your GPS clean
Downloading info into GPS
Understanding "Your GPS is going to recalculate the route"
Understanding how BaseCamp "Synch's" with your GPS (It's a lie, BaseCamp
does not sync with your GPS)
Uploading info from your GPS
Accessing a variety of maps
Understanding maps, and versions
Understanding and using OpenSource maps
Understanding the file system on your Garmin
Playing Music on your Garmin
Connecting your garmin to your Communicator, and your phone

As you can see the topics covered is pretty extensive!

Workshop size limited to 35.

Also, if you want, bring your laptop with Basecamp loaded.

Yours in great health, great riding and great fun!

Doc Wong Basic Suspension Workshop Part 1—Feb 27 Fri Night!

(http://s25.postimg.org/i9nydv36j/Doc_Wong_Logo_1.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/i9nydv36j/)

Hi,

You're invited the next Basic Suspension Part One Workshop!

I'm hyper-excited, this workshop will demystify and really enhance your knowledge of suspension setup. It is geared for those of you who are neophytes in suspension to those of you who want to know more about how set up your bike properly!

One month there was even a guy that flew from Colorado to attend the workshop and flew back the next morning!

What: Basic Suspension Part One
When: Friday, February 27, 2015, 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm
Where: Doc Wong's Full Motion Chiropractic Office
          Carlmont Village Shopping Center
          1021 Alameda De Las Pulgas
          Belmont, CA 94002
Cost: $0.00
How to sign up:  just e-mail me at: docwong@aol.com

About the topic, "Basic Suspension Setup": Worksheets have been made up with pertinent data that will be very simple and understandable. I will even have basic terminology defined so that you will know the terms and how they apply to making your bike feel good, bad, bumpy, springy, etc. The workshop will give you a very good understanding of how a suspension works and what you need to do to your bike to improve it's handling characteristics.

Workshop format:  

1.  Basic terms with demonstrations on a sport bike. I'll go over each term one by one and demonstrate them so that you will see them in action.

2.  Adjustments and how they effect the handling of your motorcycle and how you can do them on your bike.

3.  Poor handling characteristics due to "mis-adjustments" and how they can be remedied.

The workshop will be kept simple enough to ensure that when you leave, you'll have a very good understanding of how a suspension works and an idea of how to adjust your own bike. You'll have handouts and worksheets to make notes on too!

Due to the content of the materials presented, parental guidance is suggested as your enhanced understanding of how your suspension works and its subsequent demystification may bring about wide grins!

We do have to limit the number of riders to 40, due to the fact that we want everyone to see how the adjustments are made on the motorcycle.  

Want to use your bike as the demo bike for the evening? E-mail me with the specifics of your bike:  Make, model, year and if it has adjustable front and back preload.

Not only do you get the knowledge necessary to ride with more confidence and less pain, but I'll also personally coach you on your bike.  This is an evening workshop and while we don't go out for a ride on this one, if you bring your bike, you'll get coached on it.

When: Thursday, February 26, 2015! 6:30pm-8:30pm

Cost:  $0.00

This workshop is designed to help you make the necessary adjustments to your riding positons and to your bike to optimize your personal efficiency and comfort of riding your motorcycle in all conditions.

To achieve this, I'll be covering different riding styles or positions
on different bikes in differing conditions along with what needs to be changed to ergonomically fit your bike to you. Also, I'll cover the most common neck, back and wrist problems I see and what you can do to ride comfortably.

Riding Positions will include optimal positions for street, sport,
torquing, racing and dirt or dual sport riding. Which positions
produce optimum performance and which get riders into trouble along with which causes the most pain and what to do about it.

I'll demonstrate on a couple of very different bikes, a sport bike and an upright dual sport bike. That way I can demonstrate the range of riding positions and the range of ergonomic adjustments you can do to your bike. Find out how certain riding styles and poor bike setup can be hazardous and how to solve them. The end result is you being more comfortable on your bike with less fatigue and having more fun!

The ergonomics part of this workshop will cover how to adjust your bike to your body and style of riding. The ergonomics of different bike types and body types will be addressed and participants will have a working knowledge of what do do with their bikes adjustments.Optimize your bike for your riding style. Adjusting levers, foot controls, handlebar bar placements

I'll also cover exercises and stretches for you neck, back and wrists.

After the talk and demonstrations, etc., we'll go outside where you'll get on your bike and I'll coach you on body position and make suggestions on the ergonomics of your motorcycle.

Hi,

You're invited to the next:  Basic Suspension Workshop - Part 2

Here's the only catch:  It's limited to 35 riders because we will be taking apart and examining the internals of a set of forks.  Yes, you'll see the innards of the thing and see how it works to gain a deeper understanding of how suspension works.  Those who attended the last Basic Suspension Workshop (Level 1) will get first priority.  

One month there was even a guy that flew from Colorado to attend the workshop and flew back the next morning!

The Suspension Seminar Part 2, should be extraordinarily interesting tonight, I will go through the normal presentation portion of the program and will vary from the previous format by adding a lab where I'll be setting up a folding card table to perform a complete "piece by piece" dissection process on a full front fork assembly, and a rear shock assembly, while the students observe.  We'll be identifying the function of each individual item, as it's removed.  Should be a very educational experience, and rare opportunity for the riders in attendance.  I'm excited about implementing this new "twist" on the suspension training program!

I'm very pleased with the materials that I've put together so far, as I believe they will be quite effective at directly addressing the questions and issues that most motorcyclists have regarding the 'black magic' of setting up their compression and rebound adjustments, as well as other related aspects of suspension tuning.

Having attended Suspension Seminar Part 1 is not a prerequisite for coming to Part 2.

You'll also get a working knowledge of how compression and rebound works on a bike by actually adjusting the suspension.

"The format for The "PART 2" seminar looks like this:
******************************************************
1. Spring "Preload": "Setting proper "SAG", a quick review"
2. Compression & Rebound : "Solving the mystery"
3. Dissembling a set of forks and examining it's internals
4. Advanced suspension tuning: "Going beyond the factory": Wheelbase, Fork tube height. Fork oil level/viscosity
5. Troubleshooting common bike handling complaints (student contribution)
6. Cartridge fork dissembly
7. Final Question & Answer session

torquing, racing and dirt or dual sport riding. Which positions
produce optimum performance and which get riders into trouble along with which causes the most pain and what to do about it.

I'll demonstrate on a couple of very different bikes, a sport bike and an upright dual sport bike. That way I can demonstrate the range of riding positions and the range of ergonomic adjustments you can do to your bike. Find out how certain riding styles and poor bike setup can be hazardous and how to solve them. The end result is you being more comfortable on your bike with less fatigue and having more fun!

The ergonomics part of this workshop will cover how to adjust your bike to your body and style of riding. The ergonomics of different bike types and body types will be addressed and participants will have a working knowledge of what do do with their bikes adjustments.Optimize your bike for your riding style. Adjusting levers, foot controls, handlebar bar placements

I'll also cover exercises and stretches for you neck, back and wrists.

After the talk and demonstrations, etc., we'll go outside where you'll get on your bike and I'll coach you on body position and make suggestions on the ergonomics of your motorcycle.


Ride street, ride track, ride dirt, trials.....ride.....well!

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

Dr. Harry Wong, a prominent Belmont chiropractor and extremely knowledgeable sport rider, is holding a monthly series of MotorcycleRiding 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.

The Doc Wong Riding Clinics are now in it's 15th year!

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

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

SKILL LEVEL 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.  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 ofexpertise required. 

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, tanktop, 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 but not required. You are responsible for your own safety.

WORKSHOP FORMAT: (Each month is a different riding skills topic)

1. Meet at Doc Wong's Chiropractic oiffice in Carlmont Shopping Center at 9 AM. After signing wavers, Doc Wong gives an hour lecture on the day's riding topic. He'll also go over Riding Within Your Abilities, Group Riding, and Road Manners. You'll be asked to fill out an optional survey for riding feedback and health issues. Then we will be split up into small groups with ride leader volunteers to lead you thru the hills.

2. The Ride: 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 theride. As volunteer riders, they are often very willing to help you inany 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'tcontinue until everyone has arrived.

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

Ride Route: http://tinyurl.com/6gs5yu

From Dr. Wong's office up to Woodside Road, up Kings Mountain Road, down Tunitas Creek Road and a short stop at the San Gregorio Road. Continue on Stage Road to the town of Pescadero to Cloverdale, Gazos Creek Road to Hwy 1. Then down Hwy 1 to Davenport for lunch. After lunch, it's south on Highway 1 to Bonny Doone Road, right on Smith Grade to Empire Grade, down Jamison Creek Road to Boulder Creek, then up Hwy 9 to the corner of Hwy 9 and Skyline at the rest stop 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!

Doc Wong Braking Confidence & Skills Workshop! Th, April 9, 6:30PM

(http://s25.postimg.org/i9nydv36j/Doc_Wong_Logo_1.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/i9nydv36j/)

Hi,

I'm sure you're aware how to brake effectively is as important a skill as all of the other skills necessary for smooth, confident and safe riding.  I'm finding that a lot of riders can improve their skills in how and when to apply the brakes.  There is definitely a safety issue with the incorrect use of the brakes.  This causes either increased braking distances and at worst locking up the brakes prematurely, sliding out or crashing.

It's one of those skills that a lot of riders don't think of until the SHTF.  In this very unique clinic I'll be covering key points and techniques that every rider should know such as:  

Emergency Braking, Threshold Braking and Locking up the Front tire (how not to)
Braking at the limits of traction: How best to avoid crashing
Braking and Corner Entry Speed: How to Smoothly and Effectively Transition from one to the other
Critical Dos and Don'ts regarding Braking
Braking While In a Turn
Trail-braking
What Brake To Use: Front vas Rear brakes
Engine Braking
All About ABS
Braking and Downshifting
Downhill Braking

Improving riding confidence comes with knowing, applying and practicing the basic skills of riding.  With improved knowledge and skill anyone can become a smoother and safer rider.  I hope to present this vital topic to you in a way that truly improves your understanding and ability to apply this while riding and braking.

The Doc Wong Riding Clinics are now in it's 18 year with now over 40,000 riders having attended!  Is that cool or what?  Anyway welcome to this new clinic, I hope you find it helpful.

Yours in great health, great riding and great fun!

Not only do you get the knowledge necessary to ride with more confidence and less pain, but I'll also personally coach you on your bike.  This is an evening workshop and while we don't go out for a ride on this one, if you bring your bike, you'll get coached on it.

This workshop is designed to help you make the necessary adjustments to your riding positons and to your bike to optimize your personal efficiency and comfort of riding your motorcycle in all conditions.

To achieve this, I'll be covering different riding styles or positions
on different bikes in differing conditions along with what needs to be changed to ergonomically fit your bike to you. Also, I'll cover the most common neck, back and wrist problems I see and what you can do to ride comfortably.

Riding Positions will include optimal positions for street, sport,
torquing, racing and dirt or dual sport riding. Which positions
produce optimum performance and which get riders into trouble along with which causes the most pain and what to do about it.

Doc Wong Basic Suspension Workshop Part 1—May 29 Fri Night!

(http://s25.postimg.org/i9nydv36j/Doc_Wong_Logo_1.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/i9nydv36j/)

Hi,

You're invited the next Basic Suspension Part One Workshop!

I'm hyper-excited, this workshop will demystify and really enhance your knowledge of suspension setup. It is geared for those of you who are neophytes in suspension to those of you who want to know more about how set up your bike properly!

One month there was even a guy that flew from Colorado to attend the workshop and flew back the next morning!

What: Basic Suspension Part One
When: Friday, May 29, 2015, 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm
Where: Doc Wong's Full Motion Chiropractic Office
          Carlmont Village Shopping Center
          1021 Alameda De Las Pulgas
          Belmont, CA 94002
Cost: $0.00
How to sign up:  just e-mail me at: docwong@aol.com

(http://www.docwong.com/st-clinc/suspension1.jpg)

About the topic, "Basic Suspension Setup": Worksheets have been made up with pertinent data that will be very simple and understandable. I will even have basic terminology defined so that you will know the terms and how they apply to making your bike feel good, bad, bumpy, springy, etc. The workshop will give you a very good understanding of how a suspension works and what you need to do to your bike to improve it's handling characteristics.

(http://www.docwong.com/st-clinc/suspension2.jpeg)

Workshop format:  

1.  Basic terms with demonstrations on a sport bike. I'll go over each term one by one and demonstrate them so that you will see them in action.

2.  Adjustments and how they effect the handling of your motorcycle and how you can do them on your bike.

3.  Poor handling characteristics due to "mis-adjustments" and how they can be remedied.

The workshop will be kept simple enough to ensure that when you leave, you'll have a very good understanding of how a suspension works and an idea of how to adjust your own bike. You'll have handouts and worksheets to make notes on too!

Due to the content of the materials presented, parental guidance is suggested as your enhanced understanding of how your suspension works and its subsequent demystification may bring about wide grins!

We do have to limit the number of riders to 40, due to the fact that we want everyone to see how the adjustments are made on the motorcycle.  

Want to use your bike as the demo bike for the evening? E-mail me with the specifics of your bike:  Make, model, year and if it has adjustable front and back preload.

New Special Doc Wong Dual Sport Adventure SURVIVAL Experience Workshop!: May 21, 2015

(http://s25.postimg.org/i9nydv36j/Doc_Wong_Logo_1.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/i9nydv36j/)

I absolutely love our motorcycling community!!!  I come across the most amazing riders and with this very special workshop, I am super excited to announce a rider that has traveled and spent time in Equator, Columbia, Venezuela, and Brazil.

(http://www.docwong.com/st-clinc/Rahul2.jpeg)

What is special about our guest speaker, Rahul, is that just a few months ago, he had never ridden a motorcycle.  He bought a motorcycle, got some brief training and off he went to South America for adventure! And boy did he experience adventures.  His stories had me on the edge of my seat and were so amazing that I thought you may be interested in hearing about his experiences.

This is NOT the same or even similar to the Doc Wong Adventure Survival clinic given by guest speaker Drew who was in the military in special
ops.  If you came to that one, this workshop is 180 degrees different!!!!

Rahul is an engineer in Silicon Valley and took a whole new approach to survival in South America.  He'll share with us how there were three
separate attempts to rob him at gun point.  Of how in one incident, the would-be robbery eventually transformed into a life long friendship, one of keeping him safe in the deadliest part of town.  Hear about Black Markets, running check points across borders, crashing, drowning his bike and almost starving.

Out of amazing adversity came an completely different approach to survival in South America.  It is filled with compassion and understanding, one that really melted my heart for humanity.

Come hear this very special talk, and I believe you'll leave with a fresh viewpoint on dual sport adventure riding!

It's one of those skills that a lot of riders don't think of until the SHTF.  In this very unique clinic I'll be covering key points and techniques that every rider should know such as:  

Emergency Braking, Threshold Braking and Locking up the Front tire (how not to)
Braking at the limits of traction: How best to avoid crashing
Braking and Corner Entry Speed: How to Smoothly and Effectively Transition from one to the other
Critical Dos and Don'ts regarding Braking
Braking While In a Turn
Trail-braking
What Brake To Use: Front vas Rear brakes
Engine Braking
All About ABS
Braking and Downshifting
Downhill Braking

Improving riding confidence comes with knowing, applying and practicing the basic skills of riding.  With improved knowledge and skill anyone can become a smoother and safer rider.  I hope to present this vital topic to you in a way that truly improves your understanding and ability to apply this while riding and braking.

The Doc Wong Riding Clinics are now in it's 18 year with now over 40,000 riders having attended!  Is that cool or what?  Anyway welcome to this new clinic, I hope you find it helpful.

Yours in great health, great riding and great fun!

Doc Wong Moto Ergonomics & Optimal Riding Position Workshop-May 28 Th night!

(http://s25.postimg.org/i9nydv36j/Doc_Wong_Logo_1.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/i9nydv36j/)

I'm really excited about this workshop because of the wonderful feedback!

Not only do you get the knowledge necessary to ride with more confidence and less pain, but I'll also personally coach you on your bike.  This is an evening workshop and while we don't go out for a ride on this one, if you bring your bike, you'll get coached on it.

When: Thursday, May 28, 2015! 6:30pm-8:30pm
Place:  Full Motion Chiropractic
            Carlmont Shopping Center (Next to Baskin Robbins)
            1021 Alameda De Las Pulgas
            Belmont, CA 94002

Cost:  $0.00

This workshop is designed to help you make the necessary adjustments to your riding positons and to your bike to optimize your personal efficiency and comfort of riding your motorcycle in all conditions.

To achieve this, I'll be covering different riding styles or positions
on different bikes in differing conditions along with what needs to be changed to ergonomically fit your bike to you. Also, I'll cover the most common neck, back and wrist problems I see and what you can do to ride comfortably.

Riding Positions will include optimal positions for street, sport,
torquing, racing and dirt or dual sport riding. Which positions
produce optimum performance and which get riders into trouble along with which causes the most pain and what to do about it.

I'll demonstrate on a couple of very different bikes, a sport bike and an upright dual sport bike. That way I can demonstrate the range of riding positions and the range of ergonomic adjustments you can do to your bike. Find out how certain riding styles and poor bike setup can be hazardous and how to solve them. The end result is you being more comfortable on your bike with less fatigue and having more fun!

The ergonomics part of this workshop will cover how to adjust your bike to your body and style of riding. The ergonomics of different bike types and body types will be addressed and participants will have a working knowledge of what do do with their bikes adjustments.Optimize your bike for your riding style. Adjusting levers, foot controls, handlebar bar placements

I'll also cover exercises and stretches for you neck, back and wrists.

After the talk and demonstrations, etc., we'll go outside where you'll get on your bike and I'll coach you on body position and make suggestions on the ergonomics of your motorcycle.

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

Dr. Harry Wong, a prominent Belmont chiropractor and extremely knowledgeable sport rider, is holding a monthly series of MotorcycleRiding 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.

The Doc Wong Riding Clinics are now in it's 15th year!

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

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

SKILL LEVEL 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.  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 ofexpertise required. 

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, tanktop, 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 but not required. You are responsible for your own safety.

WORKSHOP FORMAT: (Each month is a different riding skills topic)

1. Meet at Doc Wong's Chiropractic oiffice in Carlmont Shopping Center at 9 AM. After signing wavers, Doc Wong gives an hour lecture on the day's riding topic. He'll also go over Riding Within Your Abilities, Group Riding, and Road Manners. You'll be asked to fill out an optional survey for riding feedback and health issues. Then we will be split up into small groups with ride leader volunteers to lead you thru the hills.

2. The Ride: 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 theride. As volunteer riders, they are often very willing to help you inany 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'tcontinue until everyone has arrived.

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

Ride Route: http://tinyurl.com/6gs5yu

From Dr. Wong's office up to Woodside Road, up Kings Mountain Road, down Tunitas Creek Road and a short stop at the San Gregorio Road. Continue on Stage Road to the town of Pescadero to Cloverdale, Gazos Creek Road to Hwy 1. Then down Hwy 1 to Davenport for lunch. After lunch, it's south on Highway 1 to Bonny Doone Road, right on Smith Grade to Empire Grade, down Jamison Creek Road to Boulder Creek, then up Hwy 9 to the corner of Hwy 9 and Skyline at the rest stop 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!

Doc Wong Braking Confidence & Skills Workshop! Th, June 11, 6:30PM

(http://s25.postimg.org/i9nydv36j/Doc_Wong_Logo_1.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/i9nydv36j/)

Hi,

I'm sure you're aware how to brake effectively is as important a skill as all of the other skills necessary for smooth, confident and safe riding.  I'm finding that a lot of riders can improve their skills in how and when to apply the brakes.  There is definitely a safety issue with the incorrect use of the brakes.  This causes either increased braking distances and at worst locking up the brakes prematurely, sliding out or crashing.

(http://www.docwong.com/st-clinc/frontbrake.jpg)

It's one of those skills that a lot of riders don't think of until the SHTF.  In this very unique clinic I'll be covering key points and techniques that every rider should know such as:  

Emergency Braking, Threshold Braking and Locking up the Front tire (how not to)
Braking at the limits of traction: How best to avoid crashing
Braking and Corner Entry Speed: How to Smoothly and Effectively Transition from one to the other
Critical Dos and Don'ts regarding Braking
Braking While In a Turn
Trail-braking
What Brake To Use: Front vas Rear brakes
Engine Braking
All About ABS
Braking and Downshifting
Downhill Braking

(http://www.docwong.com/st-clinc/rearbrake.jpg)

Improving riding confidence comes with knowing, applying and practicing the basic skills of riding.  With improved knowledge and skill anyone can become a smoother and safer rider.  I hope to present this vital topic to you in a way that truly improves your understanding and ability to apply this while riding and braking. This is a non-riding workshop so bringing your motorcycle is not necessary.

The Doc Wong Riding Clinics are now in it's 18 year with now over 40,000 riders having attended!  Is that cool or what?  Anyway welcome to this new clinic, I hope you find it helpful.

Yours in great health, great riding and great fun!

--Who’s coming when you call 911?  What agencies and what are their roles.  What you need to know.  Who responds in what area?

—How to manage or help at the scene of an accident.  What do you do before help arrives, how do you make the roadway safe and prevent secondary accidents?  When should you call 911? What do you say?  Who should call the shots before they come?  

—First Aid considerations: Should you move the rider?  Remove his helmet? CPR, trauma, tourniquets and more.  

—Communications: What to say to 911, police officers and Medics.  How to describe the crash and why this is important to medical staff.

Hi,

I'd like to announce a new clinic for newbie riders!!!

After gaining some valuable insight into what new riders go thru, I've decided to give a talk (no ride) on what I consider essential valuable tips for new riders. Of course I always recommend taking basic motorcycle training with the California Motorcycle Safety Program.  They do a vital job of beginner motorcycle basics.

(http://www.docwong.com/st-clinc/newbie1.jpg)

That and my wife being a very new rider has given me so much insight that I decided to share this accumulated knowledge with fellow new riders.

-Types of motorcycles, which are more appropriate for new riders.
-What type of motorcycle equipment you need to make things easier to own a motorcycle.
-What types of gear should you get.
-What you need to prepare yourself for riding in cold, hot, wet, foggy, rainy weather.
-What is the best rider attitude to have in the long run.
-How to improve your riding skills.
-Common newbie errors in owning and riding a motorcycle.
-Street hazards to be aware of.
-The fastest way to improve your skills.

This clinic does not replace a beginner rider course, but is designed to complement and complete information that will make riding easier, more fun and safe for you.

Doc Wong Braking Confidence & Skills Workshop! Th, July 9, 6:30PM

(http://s25.postimg.org/i9nydv36j/Doc_Wong_Logo_1.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/i9nydv36j/)

Hi,

I'm sure you're aware how to brake effectively is as important a skill as all of the other skills necessary for smooth, confident and safe riding.  I'm finding that a lot of riders can improve their skills in how and when to apply the brakes.  There is definitely a safety issue with the incorrect use of the brakes.  This causes either increased braking distances and at worst locking up the brakes prematurely, sliding out or crashing.

(http://www.docwong.com/st-clinc/frontbrake.jpg)

It's one of those skills that a lot of riders don't think of until the SHTF.  In this very unique clinic I'll be covering key points and techniques that every rider should know such as:  

Emergency Braking, Threshold Braking and Locking up the Front tire (how not to)
Braking at the limits of traction: How best to avoid crashing
Braking and Corner Entry Speed: How to Smoothly and Effectively Transition from one to the other
Critical Dos and Don'ts regarding Braking
Braking While In a Turn
Trail-braking
What Brake To Use: Front vas Rear brakes
Engine Braking
All About ABS
Braking and Downshifting
Downhill Braking

(http://www.docwong.com/st-clinc/rearbrake.jpg)

Improving riding confidence comes with knowing, applying and practicing the basic skills of riding.  With improved knowledge and skill anyone can become a smoother and safer rider.  I hope to present this vital topic to you in a way that truly improves your understanding and ability to apply this while riding and braking. This is a non-riding workshop so bringing your motorcycle is not necessary.

The Doc Wong Riding Clinics are now in it's 18 year with now over 40,000 riders having attended!  Is that cool or what?  Anyway welcome to this new clinic, I hope you find it helpful.

Yours in great health, great riding and great fun!

Doc Wong Basic Suspension Workshop-Part 2, July 24 Fri night!

(http://s25.postimg.org/i9nydv36j/Doc_Wong_Logo_1.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/i9nydv36j/)

Topic: Basic Suspension Workshop -  Part 2

Place: Full Motion Chiropractic http://tinyurl.com/6vp36k3
          Carlmont Shopping Center (Next to Baskin Robbins Ice Cream)
          1021 Alameda De Las Pulgas

Hi,

You're invited to the next:  Basic Suspension Workshop - Part 2

Here's the only catch:  It's limited to 35 riders because we will be taking apart and examining the internals of a set of forks.  Yes, you'll see the innards of the thing and see how it works to gain a deeper understanding of how suspension works.  Those who attended the last Basic Suspension Workshop (Level 1) will get first priority.  

One month there was even a guy that flew from Colorado to attend the workshop and flew back the next morning!

The Suspension Seminar Part 2, should be extraordinarily interesting tonight, I will go through the normal presentation portion of the program and will vary from the previous format by adding a lab where I'll be setting up a folding card table to perform a complete "piece by piece" dissection process on a full front fork assembly, and a rear shock assembly, while the students observe.  We'll be identifying the function of each individual item, as it's removed.  Should be a very educational experience, and rare opportunity for the riders in attendance.  I'm excited about implementing this new "twist" on the suspension training program!

I'm very pleased with the materials that I've put together so far, as I believe they will be quite effective at directly addressing the questions and issues that most motorcyclists have regarding the 'black magic' of setting up their compression and rebound adjustments, as well as other related aspects of suspension tuning.

Having attended Suspension Seminar Part 1 is not a prerequisite for coming to Part 2.

You'll also get a working knowledge of how compression and rebound works on a bike by actually adjusting the suspension.

(http://www.docwong.com/st-clinc/suspension2.jpeg)

"The format for The "PART 2" seminar looks like this:
******************************************************
1. Spring "Preload": "Setting proper "SAG", a quick review"
2. Compression & Rebound : "Solving the mystery"
3. Dissembling a set of forks and examining it's internals
4. Advanced suspension tuning: "Going beyond the factory": Wheelbase, Fork tube height. Fork oil level/viscosity
5. Troubleshooting common bike handling complaints (student contribution)
6. Cartridge fork dissembly
7. Final Question & Answer session

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

Dr. Harry Wong, a prominent Belmont chiropractor and extremely knowledgeable sport rider, is holding a monthly series of MotorcycleRiding 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.

The Doc Wong Riding Clinics are now in it's 15th year!

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

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

SKILL LEVEL 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.  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 ofexpertise required. 

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, tanktop, 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 but not required. You are responsible for your own safety.

WORKSHOP FORMAT: (Each month is a different riding skills topic)

1. Meet at Doc Wong's Chiropractic oiffice in Carlmont Shopping Center at 9 AM. After signing wavers, Doc Wong gives an hour lecture on the day's riding topic. He'll also go over Riding Within Your Abilities, Group Riding, and Road Manners. You'll be asked to fill out an optional survey for riding feedback and health issues. Then we will be split up into small groups with ride leader volunteers to lead you thru the hills.

2. The Ride: 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 theride. As volunteer riders, they are often very willing to help you inany 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'tcontinue until everyone has arrived.

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

Ride Route: http://tinyurl.com/6gs5yu

From Dr. Wong's office up to Woodside Road, up Kings Mountain Road, down Tunitas Creek Road and a short stop at the San Gregorio Road. Continue on Stage Road to the town of Pescadero to Cloverdale, Gazos Creek Road to Hwy 1. Then down Hwy 1 to Davenport for lunch. After lunch, it's south on Highway 1 to Bonny Doone Road, right on Smith Grade to Empire Grade, down Jamison Creek Road to Boulder Creek, then up Hwy 9 to the corner of Hwy 9 and Skyline at the rest stop 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!

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

Dr. Harry Wong, a prominent Belmont chiropractor and extremely knowledgeable sport rider, is holding a monthly series of MotorcycleRiding 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.

The Doc Wong Riding Clinics are now in it's 15th year!

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

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

SKILL LEVEL 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.  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 ofexpertise required. 

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, tanktop, 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 but not required. You are responsible for your own safety.

WORKSHOP FORMAT: (Each month is a different riding skills topic)

1. Meet at Doc Wong's Chiropractic oiffice in Carlmont Shopping Center at 9 AM. After signing wavers, Doc Wong gives an hour lecture on the day's riding topic. He'll also go over Riding Within Your Abilities, Group Riding, and Road Manners. You'll be asked to fill out an optional survey for riding feedback and health issues. Then we will be split up into small groups with ride leader volunteers to lead you thru the hills.

2. The Ride: 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 theride. As volunteer riders, they are often very willing to help you inany 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'tcontinue until everyone has arrived.

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

Ride Route: http://tinyurl.com/6gs5yu

From Dr. Wong's office up to Woodside Road, up Kings Mountain Road, down Tunitas Creek Road and a short stop at the San Gregorio Road. Continue on Stage Road to the town of Pescadero to Cloverdale, Gazos Creek Road to Hwy 1. Then down Hwy 1 to Davenport for lunch. After lunch, it's south on Highway 1 to Bonny Doone Road, right on Smith Grade to Empire Grade, down Jamison Creek Road to Boulder Creek, then up Hwy 9 to the corner of Hwy 9 and Skyline at the rest stop 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!

I'm really excited about this workshop because of the wonderful feedback!

Not only do you get the knowledge necessary to ride with more confidence and less pain, but I'll also personally coach you on your bike.  This is an evening workshop and while we don't go out for a ride on this one, if you bring your bike, you'll get coached on it.

(http://www.docwong.com/st-clinc/ergodiagram.jpg)

Place:  Full Motion Chiropractic

            (650) 365-7775

How to register: just e-mail me at: docwong@aol.com
Cost:  $0.00

This workshop is designed to help you make the necessary adjustments to your riding positons and to your bike to optimize your personal efficiency and comfort of riding your motorcycle in all conditions.

To achieve this, I'll be covering different riding styles or positions
on different bikes in differing conditions along with what needs to be changed to ergonomically fit your bike to you. Also, I'll cover the most common neck, back and wrist problems I see and what you can do to ride comfortably.

Riding Positions will include optimal positions for street, sport,
torquing, racing and dirt or dual sport riding. Which positions
produce optimum performance and which get riders into trouble along with which causes the most pain and what to do about it.

(http://www.docwong.com/st-clinc/ergo1.jpg)

I'll demonstrate on a couple of very different bikes, a sport bike and an upright dual sport bike. That way I can demonstrate the range of riding positions and the range of ergonomic adjustments you can do to your bike. Find out how certain riding styles and poor bike setup can be hazardous and how to solve them. The end result is you being more comfortable on your bike with less fatigue and having more fun!

(http://www.docwong.com/st-clinc/ergo2.jpg)

(http://www.docwong.com/st-clinc/ergo3.jpg)

The ergonomics part of this workshop will cover how to adjust your bike to your body and style of riding. The ergonomics of different bike types and body types will be addressed and participants will have a working knowledge of what do do with their bikes adjustments.Optimize your bike for your riding style. Adjusting levers, foot controls, handlebar bar placements

I'll also cover exercises and stretches for you neck, back and wrists.

After the talk and demonstrations, etc., we'll go outside where you'll get on your bike and I'll coach you on body position and make suggestions on the ergonomics of your motorcycle.


Ride street, ride track, ride dirt, trials.....ride.....well!

Doc Wong Adventure Dual Sport Clinic - September 11 and 13!

(http://s25.postimg.org/i9nydv36j/Doc_Wong_Logo_1.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/i9nydv36j/)

Hi,
 
Due to some very popular requests, I've created this special clinic for adventurous dual-sport, dirt and street riders. Basically anyone who wants to improve their dirt skills. From the consistent feedback we've been getting, the new format has been getting impressive results with riders gaining greatly improved dirt skills and confidence!

(http://www.docwong.com/st-clinc/dualsport1.jpg)
 
If you're a street rider and don't have a dual-sport or dirt bike, come to Friday night's lecture and demonstrations as I guarantee that 
it will be an educational experience for you.  Though I'd have to say that I've had a rider show up Sunday with a full dress Harley Davidson motorcycle that did the dirt clinic. He did well too!
 
Not only will you learn Doc Wong's 12 Basic Fundamentals of Dirt Riding Skills, but you'll get the most important data point of riding any motorcycle competently.   I'll cover vital topics and drills dealing 
with coordinated balance, controlled sliding of the rear AND front wheels, controlled wheelies, hillclimbs and much more.
 
So how do I get newer Adventure Dirt/Dual-Sport riders to, safely, do things like lock up the front wheel, do wheelies etc all 4 hours of drills????  Attend Friday night's lecture and demonstration and find out about Doc Wong's Proven Riding Confidence Generator!!
 
If you're a more experienced dirt rider I'd appreciate any help you'd like to give in leading a group, etc.
 
This clinic is held on two separate days.
 
**Please note: Friday night's 
talk is a prerequisite to Sunday's drilling session.
 
Cost: $20.00 donation to the Doc Wong Riding Clinics for clinic costs. Sound too good to be true?  Yes, but it's true and has been for the last 21 years of the Doc Wong Riding Clinics with now
over 41,000 riders having attended my various events! The $20 donation is appreciated and if you want to donate more, that would be
wonderful, but you won't be asked to.
 
Part A: Friday evening, September 11 at 6:30 PM will be a 2 1/2 hour talk at my chiropractic office:
 
Full Motion Chiropractic
1021 Alameda de las Pulgas
Belmont, CA 94002
(650) 365-7775

(http://www.docwong.com/st-clinc/dualsport2.jpg)
 
Part B: Sunday 4 hours of drills, drills and more drills. I can pretty much guarantee that after this your dirt riding confidence will significantly improve along with feeling much more confident with your street riding, especially when road conditions get slippery.

We will practice and drill the exact concepts that were explained and demonstrated on Friday night!!  The drilling location is subject to change so I'll announce that Friday at my office at Full Motion Chiropractic. 
 
TO REGISTER:  E-mail me ASAP at:  Docwong@aol.com  (limited to the first
40 riders, so if you register and can't make it, please let me know 
ASAP as there will be a waiting list)

(http://www.docwong.com/st-clinc/dualsport3.jpg)
 
Anyone is welcome to come to the evening "Dirt Riding Workshop-Talks 
and Demonstrations" part of the clinic and is not limited in numbers, 
however the practical "Doc Wong Adventure Dirt Drills" part of the clinic is limited to 40 riders.
 
----------------
WHAT TO BRING TO THE DIRT RIDE
 
A. Snacks, lunch and water.
 
B. Gear: Minimally have a good helmet, gloves, heavy boots, blue jeans and a long sleeved shirt. Full dirt riding gear is ideal: Dirt helmet, goggles, chest protector, elbow guards, gloves, knee pads and dirt 
boots. Regular dual sport riding and touring gear is ok too, but be aware it may get hot.
 
C. Mechanical: bike in good order, knobbies will work best, however dual-sport tires will work also. Street bike tires will provide a unique experience! ;-)
 
D. You can bring luggage if you want.  We'll be at a location where you can stow some gear.
 
E. Type of bike:  at this time you can bring just about any kind of bike.  The drills area is flat with various paths.  If your feeling adventurous, just bring a street bike and go slow, remember your responsible for yourself.

Doc Wong Braking Confidence & Skills Workshop! Th, Sept 10, 6:30PM

(http://s25.postimg.org/i9nydv36j/Doc_Wong_Logo_1.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/i9nydv36j/)

Hi,

I'm sure you're aware how to brake effectively is as important a skill as all of the other skills necessary for smooth, confident and safe riding.  I'm finding that a lot of riders can improve their skills in how and when to apply the brakes.  There is definitely a safety issue with the incorrect use of the brakes.  This causes either increased braking distances and at worst locking up the brakes prematurely, sliding out or crashing.

(http://www.docwong.com/st-clinc/frontbrake.jpg)

It's one of those skills that a lot of riders don't think of until the SHTF.  In this very unique clinic I'll be covering key points and techniques that every rider should know such as:  

Emergency Braking, Threshold Braking and Locking up the Front tire (how not to)
Braking at the limits of traction: How best to avoid crashing
Braking and Corner Entry Speed: How to Smoothly and Effectively Transition from one to the other
Critical Dos and Don'ts regarding Braking
Braking While In a Turn
Trail-braking
What Brake To Use: Front vas Rear brakes
Engine Braking
All About ABS
Braking and Downshifting
Downhill Braking

(http://www.docwong.com/st-clinc/rearbrake.jpg)

Improving riding confidence comes with knowing, applying and practicing the basic skills of riding.  With improved knowledge and skill anyone can become a smoother and safer rider.  I hope to present this vital topic to you in a way that truly improves your understanding and ability to apply this while riding and braking. This is a non-riding workshop so bringing your motorcycle is not necessary.

The Doc Wong Riding Clinics are now in it's 18 year with now over 40,000 riders having attended!  Is that cool or what?  Anyway welcome to this new clinic, I hope you find it helpful.

Yours in great health, great riding and great fun!

Doc Wong Basic Suspension Workshop Part 1—Sept 18 Fri Night!

(http://s25.postimg.org/i9nydv36j/Doc_Wong_Logo_1.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/i9nydv36j/)

Hi,

You're invited the next Basic Suspension Part One Workshop!

I'm hyper-excited, this workshop will demystify and really enhance your knowledge of suspension setup. It is geared for those of you who are neophytes in suspension to those of you who want to know more about how set up your bike properly!

One month there was even a guy that flew from Colorado to attend the workshop and flew back the next morning!

What: Basic Suspension Part One
When: Friday, Sept 18, 2015, 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm
Where: Doc Wong's Full Motion Chiropractic Office
          Carlmont Village Shopping Center
          1021 Alameda De Las Pulgas
          Belmont, CA 94002
Cost: $0.00
How to sign up:  just e-mail me at: docwong@aol.com

(http://www.docwong.com/st-clinc/suspension1.jpg)

About the topic, "Basic Suspension Setup": Worksheets have been made up with pertinent data that will be very simple and understandable. I will even have basic terminology defined so that you will know the terms and how they apply to making your bike feel good, bad, bumpy, springy, etc. The workshop will give you a very good understanding of how a suspension works and what you need to do to your bike to improve it's handling characteristics.

(http://www.docwong.com/st-clinc/suspension2.jpeg)

Workshop format:  

1.  Basic terms with demonstrations on a sport bike. I'll go over each term one by one and demonstrate them so that you will see them in action.

2.  Adjustments and how they effect the handling of your motorcycle and how you can do them on your bike.

3.  Poor handling characteristics due to "mis-adjustments" and how they can be remedied.

The workshop will be kept simple enough to ensure that when you leave, you'll have a very good understanding of how a suspension works and an idea of how to adjust your own bike. You'll have handouts and worksheets to make notes on too!

Due to the content of the materials presented, parental guidance is suggested as your enhanced understanding of how your suspension works and its subsequent demystification may bring about wide grins!

We do have to limit the number of riders to 40, due to the fact that we want everyone to see how the adjustments are made on the motorcycle.  

Want to use your bike as the demo bike for the evening? E-mail me with the specifics of your bike:  Make, model, year and if it has adjustable front and back preload.

How to register:

Doc Wong Braking Confidence & Skills Workshop! Th, Oct 8, 6:30PM

(http://s25.postimg.org/i9nydv36j/Doc_Wong_Logo_1.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/i9nydv36j/)

Hi,

I'm sure you're aware how to brake effectively is as important a skill as all of the other skills necessary for smooth, confident and safe riding.  I'm finding that a lot of riders can improve their skills in how and when to apply the brakes.  There is definitely a safety issue with the incorrect use of the brakes.  This causes either increased braking distances and at worst locking up the brakes prematurely, sliding out or crashing.

(http://www.docwong.com/st-clinc/frontbrake.jpg)

It's one of those skills that a lot of riders don't think of until the SHTF.  In this very unique clinic I'll be covering key points and techniques that every rider should know such as:  

Emergency Braking, Threshold Braking and Locking up the Front tire (how not to)
Braking at the limits of traction: How best to avoid crashing
Braking and Corner Entry Speed: How to Smoothly and Effectively Transition from one to the other
Critical Dos and Don'ts regarding Braking
Braking While In a Turn
Trail-braking
What Brake To Use: Front vas Rear brakes
Engine Braking
All About ABS
Braking and Downshifting
Downhill Braking

(http://www.docwong.com/st-clinc/rearbrake.jpg)

Improving riding confidence comes with knowing, applying and practicing the basic skills of riding.  With improved knowledge and skill anyone can become a smoother and safer rider.  I hope to present this vital topic to you in a way that truly improves your understanding and ability to apply this while riding and braking. This is a non-riding workshop so bringing your motorcycle is not necessary.

The Doc Wong Riding Clinics are now in it's 18 year with now over 40,000 riders having attended!  Is that cool or what?  Anyway welcome to this new clinic, I hope you find it helpful.

Yours in great health, great riding and great fun!

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

Dr. Harry Wong, a prominent Belmont chiropractor and extremely knowledgeable sport rider, is holding a monthly series of MotorcycleRiding 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.

The Doc Wong Riding Clinics are now in it's 15th year!

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

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

SKILL LEVEL 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.  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 ofexpertise required. 

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, tanktop, 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 but not required. You are responsible for your own safety.

WORKSHOP FORMAT: (Each month is a different riding skills topic)

1. Meet at Doc Wong's Chiropractic oiffice in Carlmont Shopping Center at 9 AM. After signing wavers, Doc Wong gives an hour lecture on the day's riding topic. He'll also go over Riding Within Your Abilities, Group Riding, and Road Manners. You'll be asked to fill out an optional survey for riding feedback and health issues. Then we will be split up into small groups with ride leader volunteers to lead you thru the hills.

2. The Ride: 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 theride. As volunteer riders, they are often very willing to help you inany 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'tcontinue until everyone has arrived.

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

Ride Route: http://tinyurl.com/6gs5yu

From Dr. Wong's office up to Woodside Road, up Kings Mountain Road, down Tunitas Creek Road and a short stop at the San Gregorio Road. Continue on Stage Road to the town of Pescadero to Cloverdale, Gazos Creek Road to Hwy 1. Then down Hwy 1 to Davenport for lunch. After lunch, it's south on Highway 1 to Bonny Doone Road, right on Smith Grade to Empire Grade, down Jamison Creek Road to Boulder Creek, then up Hwy 9 to the corner of Hwy 9 and Skyline at the rest stop 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!

          Carlmont Shopping Center (Next to Baskin Robbins Ice Cream)

How to sign up:  e-mail me at:  docwong@aol.com

(http://www.docwong.com/st-clinc/suspension1.jpg)

Hi,

You're invited to the next:  Basic Suspension Workshop - Part 2

Here's the only catch:  It's limited to 35 riders because we will be taking apart and examining the internals of a set of forks.  Yes, you'll see the innards of the thing and see how it works to gain a deeper understanding of how suspension works.  Those who attended the last Basic Suspension Workshop (Level 1) will get first priority.  

One month there was even a guy that flew from Colorado to attend the workshop and flew back the next morning!

The Suspension Seminar Part 2, should be extraordinarily interesting tonight, I will go through the normal presentation portion of the program and will vary from the previous format by adding a lab where I'll be setting up a folding card table to perform a complete "piece by piece" dissection process on a full front fork assembly, and a rear shock assembly, while the students observe.  We'll be identifying the function of each individual item, as it's removed.  Should be a very educational experience, and rare opportunity for the riders in attendance.  I'm excited about implementing this new "twist" on the suspension training program!

I'm very pleased with the materials that I've put together so far, as I believe they will be quite effective at directly addressing the questions and issues that most motorcyclists have regarding the 'black magic' of setting up their compression and rebound adjustments, as well as other related aspects of suspension tuning.

Having attended Suspension Seminar Part 1 is not a prerequisite for coming to Part 2.

You'll also get a working knowledge of how compression and rebound works on a bike by actually adjusting the suspension.

(http://www.docwong.com/st-clinc/suspension2.jpeg)

"The format for The "PART 2" seminar looks like this:
******************************************************
1. Spring "Preload": "Setting proper "SAG", a quick review"
2. Compression & Rebound : "Solving the mystery"
3. Dissembling a set of forks and examining it's internals
4. Advanced suspension tuning: "Going beyond the factory": Wheelbase, Fork tube height. Fork oil level/viscosity
5. Troubleshooting common bike handling complaints (student contribution)
6. Cartridge fork dissembly
7. Final Question & Answer session

Special Doc Wong Workshop: Crash Scene-Life and Death Workshop, Fri Night Dec 4, 2015 6:30PM


Hi,

I lost a dear friend three years ago in a motorcycle accident and the information in this workshop may have saved his life.  Life can get pretty wild sometimes and just calling and waiting for emergency services to arrive may not be enough to save a life.  Come find out what you need to know, pro-actively, to help at the scene of a motorcycle crash and assist Emergency Medical Services.  Jill Jaehne will attend to share her experienced insights too.

Special guest speaker, Paul Willett, a 20 year experienced Fire Fighter, Search and Rescue, Paramedic and motorcyclist has been at the scene of many accidents and has some vital information to share with you.  

He’ll share with you how to manage or help at the scene of an accident that may make the difference between life and death!  Much of this is not mentioned in standard First Aid/CPR classes.  This is VITAL because when help does arrive, they can be vastly assisted by your interactions!!

Paul will cover the vital topics of:
 
--Who’s coming when you call 911?  What agencies and what are their roles.  What you need to know.  Who responds in what area?

—How to manage or help at the scene of an accident.  What do you do before help arrives, how do you make the roadway safe and prevent secondary accidents?  When should you call 911? What do you say?  Who should call the shots before they come?  

—First Aid considerations: Should you move the rider?  Remove his helmet? CPR, trauma, tourniquets and more.  

—Communications: What to say to 911, police officers and Medics.  How to describe the crash and why this is important to medical staff.

—Gear: what protection works best?  Medical history ID.  What should be in a motorcyclist’s First Aid pack.
 
—Importance of speed of transport and what to do if something is wrong.

Hi,

You're invited to the next:  Basic Suspension Workshop - Part 2

Here's the only catch:  It's limited to 35 riders because we will be taking apart and examining the internals of a set of forks.  Yes, you'll see the innards of the thing and see how it works to gain a deeper understanding of how suspension works.  Those who attended the last Basic Suspension Workshop (Level 1) will get first priority.  

One month there was even a guy that flew from Colorado to attend the workshop and flew back the next morning!

The Suspension Seminar Part 2, should be extraordinarily interesting tonight, I will go through the normal presentation portion of the program and will vary from the previous format by adding a lab where I'll be setting up a folding card table to perform a complete "piece by piece" dissection process on a full front fork assembly, and a rear shock assembly, while the students observe.  We'll be identifying the function of each individual item, as it's removed.  Should be a very educational experience, and rare opportunity for the riders in attendance.  I'm excited about implementing this new "twist" on the suspension training program!

I'm very pleased with the materials that I've put together so far, as I believe they will be quite effective at directly addressing the questions and issues that most motorcyclists have regarding the 'black magic' of setting up their compression and rebound adjustments, as well as other related aspects of suspension tuning.

Having attended Suspension Seminar Part 1 is not a prerequisite for coming to Part 2.

You'll also get a working knowledge of how compression and rebound works on a bike by actually adjusting the suspension.

(http://www.docwong.com/st-clinc/suspension2.jpeg)

"The format for The "PART 2" seminar looks like this:
******************************************************
1. Spring "Preload": "Setting proper "SAG", a quick review"
2. Compression & Rebound : "Solving the mystery"
3. Dissembling a set of forks and examining it's internals
4. Advanced suspension tuning: "Going beyond the factory": Wheelbase, Fork tube height. Fork oil level/viscosity
5. Troubleshooting common bike handling complaints (student contribution)
6. Cartridge fork dissembly
7. Final Question & Answer session

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

Dr. Harry Wong, a prominent Belmont chiropractor and extremely knowledgeable sport rider, is holding a monthly series of MotorcycleRiding 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.

The Doc Wong Riding Clinics are now in it's 15th year!

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

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

SKILL LEVEL 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.  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 ofexpertise required. 

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, tanktop, 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 but not required. You are responsible for your own safety.

WORKSHOP FORMAT: (Each month is a different riding skills topic)

1. Meet at Doc Wong's Chiropractic oiffice in Carlmont Shopping Center at 9 AM. After signing wavers, Doc Wong gives an hour lecture on the day's riding topic. He'll also go over Riding Within Your Abilities, Group Riding, and Road Manners. You'll be asked to fill out an optional survey for riding feedback and health issues. Then we will be split up into small groups with ride leader volunteers to lead you thru the hills.

2. The Ride: 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 theride. As volunteer riders, they are often very willing to help you inany 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'tcontinue until everyone has arrived.

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

Ride Route: http://tinyurl.com/6gs5yu

From Dr. Wong's office up to Woodside Road, up Kings Mountain Road, down Tunitas Creek Road and a short stop at the San Gregorio Road. Continue on Stage Road to the town of Pescadero to Cloverdale, Gazos Creek Road to Hwy 1. Then down Hwy 1 to Davenport for lunch. After lunch, it's south on Highway 1 to Bonny Doone Road, right on Smith Grade to Empire Grade, down Jamison Creek Road to Boulder Creek, then up Hwy 9 to the corner of Hwy 9 and Skyline at the rest stop 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!

Doc Wong Braking Confidence & Skills Workshop! Th, Dec 3, 6:30PM

(http://s25.postimg.org/i9nydv36j/Doc_Wong_Logo_1.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/i9nydv36j/)

Hi,

I'm sure you're aware how to brake effectively is as important a skill as all of the other skills necessary for smooth, confident and safe riding.  I'm finding that a lot of riders can improve their skills in how and when to apply the brakes.  There is definitely a safety issue with the incorrect use of the brakes.  This causes either increased braking distances and at worst locking up the brakes prematurely, sliding out or crashing.

(http://www.docwong.com/st-clinc/frontbrake.jpg)

It's one of those skills that a lot of riders don't think of until the SHTF.  In this very unique clinic I'll be covering key points and techniques that every rider should know such as:  

Emergency Braking, Threshold Braking and Locking up the Front tire (how not to)
Braking at the limits of traction: How best to avoid crashing
Braking and Corner Entry Speed: How to Smoothly and Effectively Transition from one to the other
Critical Dos and Don'ts regarding Braking
Braking While In a Turn
Trail-braking
What Brake To Use: Front vas Rear brakes
Engine Braking
All About ABS
Braking and Downshifting
Downhill Braking

(http://www.docwong.com/st-clinc/rearbrake.jpg)

Improving riding confidence comes with knowing, applying and practicing the basic skills of riding.  With improved knowledge and skill anyone can become a smoother and safer rider.  I hope to present this vital topic to you in a way that truly improves your understanding and ability to apply this while riding and braking. This is a non-riding workshop so bringing your motorcycle is not necessary.

The Doc Wong Riding Clinics are now in it's 18 year with now over 40,000 riders having attended!  Is that cool or what?  Anyway welcome to this new clinic, I hope you find it helpful.

Yours in great health, great riding and great fun!

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

Dr. Harry Wong, a prominent Belmont chiropractor and extremely knowledgeable sport rider, is holding a monthly series of MotorcycleRiding 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.

The Doc Wong Riding Clinics are now in it's 15th year!

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

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

SKILL LEVEL 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.  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 ofexpertise required. 

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, tanktop, 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 but not required. You are responsible for your own safety.

WORKSHOP FORMAT: (Each month is a different riding skills topic)

1. Meet at Doc Wong's Chiropractic oiffice in Carlmont Shopping Center at 9 AM. After signing wavers, Doc Wong gives an hour lecture on the day's riding topic. He'll also go over Riding Within Your Abilities, Group Riding, and Road Manners. You'll be asked to fill out an optional survey for riding feedback and health issues. Then we will be split up into small groups with ride leader volunteers to lead you thru the hills.

2. The Ride: 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 theride. As volunteer riders, they are often very willing to help you inany 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'tcontinue until everyone has arrived.

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

Ride Route: http://tinyurl.com/6gs5yu

From Dr. Wong's office up to Woodside Road, up Kings Mountain Road, down Tunitas Creek Road and a short stop at the San Gregorio Road. Continue on Stage Road to the town of Pescadero to Cloverdale, Gazos Creek Road to Hwy 1. Then down Hwy 1 to Davenport for lunch. After lunch, it's south on Highway 1 to Bonny Doone Road, right on Smith Grade to Empire Grade, down Jamison Creek Road to Boulder Creek, then up Hwy 9 to the corner of Hwy 9 and Skyline at the rest stop 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!

Doc Wong Basic Suspension Workshop Part 1—Jan 22 Fri Night!



(http://s25.postimg.org/i9nydv36j/Doc_Wong_Logo_1.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/i9nydv36j/)



Hi,



You're invited the next Basic Suspension Part One Workshop!



I'm hyper-excited, this workshop will demystify and really enhance your knowledge of suspension setup. It is geared for those of you who are neophytes in suspension to those of you who want to know more about how set up your bike properly!



One month there was even a guy that flew from Colorado to attend the workshop and flew back the next morning!



What: Basic Suspension Part One

When: Friday, January 22, 2016, 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm

Where: Doc Wong's Full Motion Chiropractic Office

 Carlmont Village Shopping Center

 1021 Alameda De Las Pulgas

 Belmont, CA 94002

Cost: $0.00

How to sign up:  just e-mail me at: docwong@aol.com


(http://www.docwong.com/st-clinc/suspension1.jpg)



About the topic, "Basic Suspension Setup": Worksheets have been made up with pertinent data that will be very simple and understandable. I will even have basic terminology defined so that you will know the terms and how they apply to making your bike feel good, bad, bumpy, springy, etc. The workshop will give you a very good understanding of how a suspension works and what you need to do to your bike to improve it's handling characteristics.



(http://www.docwong.com/st-clinc/suspension2.jpeg)



Workshop format: 



1.  Basic terms with demonstrations on a sport bike. I'll go over each term one by one and demonstrate them so that you will see them in action.



2.  Adjustments and how they effect the handling of your motorcycle and how you can do them on your bike.



3.  Poor handling characteristics due to "mis-adjustments" and how they can be remedied.



The workshop will be kept simple enough to ensure that when you leave, you'll have a very good understanding of how a suspension works and an idea of how to adjust your own bike. You'll have handouts and worksheets to make notes on too!



Due to the content of the materials presented, parental guidance is suggested as your enhanced understanding of how your suspension works and its subsequent demystification may bring about wide grins!



We do have to limit the number of riders to 40, due to the fact that we want everyone to see how the adjustments are made on the motorcycle. 



Want to use your bike as the demo bike for the evening? E-mail me with the specifics of your bike:  Make, model, year and if it has adjustable front and back preload.



How to register:



Just e-mail me at:  docwong@aol.com

Doc Wong Braking Confidence & Skills Workshop! Thurs, Jan 21, 6:30PM

(http://s25.postimg.org/i9nydv36j/Doc_Wong_Logo_1.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/i9nydv36j/)

Hi,

I'm sure you're aware how to brake effectively is as important a skill as all of the other skills necessary for smooth, confident and safe riding.  I'm finding that a lot of riders can improve their skills in how and when to apply the brakes.  There is definitely a safety issue with the incorrect use of the brakes.  This causes either increased braking distances and at worst locking up the brakes prematurely, sliding out or crashing.

(http://www.docwong.com/st-clinc/frontbrake.jpg)

It's one of those skills that a lot of riders don't think of until the SHTF.  In this very unique clinic I'll be covering key points and techniques that every rider should know such as:  

Emergency Braking, Threshold Braking and Locking up the Front tire (how not to)
Braking at the limits of traction: How best to avoid crashing
Braking and Corner Entry Speed: How to Smoothly and Effectively Transition from one to the other
Critical Dos and Don'ts regarding Braking
Braking While In a Turn
Trail-braking
What Brake To Use: Front vas Rear brakes
Engine Braking
All About ABS
Braking and Downshifting
Downhill Braking

(http://www.docwong.com/st-clinc/rearbrake.jpg)

Improving riding confidence comes with knowing, applying and practicing the basic skills of riding.  With improved knowledge and skill anyone can become a smoother and safer rider.  I hope to present this vital topic to you in a way that truly improves your understanding and ability to apply this while riding and braking. This is a non-riding workshop so bringing your motorcycle is not necessary.

The Doc Wong Riding Clinics are now in it's 18 year with now over 40,000 riders having attended!  Is that cool or what?  Anyway welcome to this new clinic, I hope you find it helpful.

Yours in great health, great riding and great fun!

I'm really excited about this workshop because of the wonderful feedback!

Not only do you get the knowledge necessary to ride with more confidence and less pain, but I'll also personally coach you on your bike.  This is an evening workshop and while we don't go out for a ride on this one, if you bring your bike, you'll get coached on it.

How to register: just e-mail me at: docwong@aol.com
Cost:  $0.00

This workshop is designed to help you make the necessary adjustments to your riding positons and to your bike to optimize your personal efficiency and comfort of riding your motorcycle in all conditions.

To achieve this, I'll be covering different riding styles or positions
on different bikes in differing conditions along with what needs to be changed to ergonomically fit your bike to you. Also, I'll cover the most common neck, back and wrist problems I see and what you can do to ride comfortably.

Riding Positions will include optimal positions for street, sport,
torquing, racing and dirt or dual sport riding. Which positions
produce optimum performance and which get riders into trouble along with which causes the most pain and what to do about it.

(http://www.docwong.com/st-clinc/ergo1.jpg)

I'll demonstrate on a couple of very different bikes, a sport bike and an upright dual sport bike. That way I can demonstrate the range of riding positions and the range of ergonomic adjustments you can do to your bike. Find out how certain riding styles and poor bike setup can be hazardous and how to solve them. The end result is you being more comfortable on your bike with less fatigue and having more fun!

(http://www.docwong.com/st-clinc/ergo2.jpg)

(http://www.docwong.com/st-clinc/ergo3.jpg)

The ergonomics part of this workshop will cover how to adjust your bike to your body and style of riding. The ergonomics of different bike types and body types will be addressed and participants will have a working knowledge of what do do with their bikes adjustments.Optimize your bike for your riding style. Adjusting levers, foot controls, handlebar bar placements

I'll also cover exercises and stretches for you neck, back and wrists.

After the talk and demonstrations, etc., we'll go outside where you'll get on your bike and I'll coach you on body position and make suggestions on the ergonomics of your motorcycle.

Hi,

You're invited to the next:  Basic Suspension Workshop - Part 2

Here's the only catch:  It's limited to 35 riders because we will be taking apart and examining the internals of a set of forks.  Yes, you'll see the innards of the thing and see how it works to gain a deeper understanding of how suspension works.  Those who attended the last Basic Suspension Workshop (Level 1) will get first priority.  

One month there was even a guy that flew from Colorado to attend the workshop and flew back the next morning!

The Suspension Seminar Part 2, should be extraordinarily interesting tonight, I will go through the normal presentation portion of the program and will vary from the previous format by adding a lab where I'll be setting up a folding card table to perform a complete "piece by piece" dissection process on a full front fork assembly, and a rear shock assembly, while the students observe.  We'll be identifying the function of each individual item, as it's removed.  Should be a very educational experience, and rare opportunity for the riders in attendance.  I'm excited about implementing this new "twist" on the suspension training program!

I'm very pleased with the materials that I've put together so far, as I believe they will be quite effective at directly addressing the questions and issues that most motorcyclists have regarding the 'black magic' of setting up their compression and rebound adjustments, as well as other related aspects of suspension tuning.

Having attended Suspension Seminar Part 1 is not a prerequisite for coming to Part 2.

You'll also get a working knowledge of how compression and rebound works on a bike by actually adjusting the suspension.

(http://www.docwong.com/st-clinc/suspension2.jpeg)

"The format for The "PART 2" seminar looks like this:
******************************************************
1. Spring "Preload": "Setting proper "SAG", a quick review"
2. Compression & Rebound : "Solving the mystery"
3. Dissembling a set of forks and examining it's internals
4. Advanced suspension tuning: "Going beyond the factory": Wheelbase, Fork tube height. Fork oil level/viscosity
5. Troubleshooting common bike handling complaints (student contribution)
6. Cartridge fork dissembly
7. Final Question & Answer session

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

Dr. Harry Wong, a prominent Belmont chiropractor and extremely knowledgeable sport rider, is holding a monthly series of MotorcycleRiding 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.

The Doc Wong Riding Clinics are now in it's 15th year!

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

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

SKILL LEVEL 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.  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 ofexpertise required. 

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, tanktop, 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 but not required. You are responsible for your own safety.

WORKSHOP FORMAT: (Each month is a different riding skills topic)

1. Meet at Doc Wong's Chiropractic oiffice in Carlmont Shopping Center at 9 AM. After signing wavers, Doc Wong gives an hour lecture on the day's riding topic. He'll also go over Riding Within Your Abilities, Group Riding, and Road Manners. You'll be asked to fill out an optional survey for riding feedback and health issues. Then we will be split up into small groups with ride leader volunteers to lead you thru the hills.

(http://www.docwong.com/st-clinc/Streetclinic-4.jpeg)

2. The Ride: 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 theride. As volunteer riders, they are often very willing to help you inany 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'tcontinue until everyone has arrived.

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

Ride Route: http://tinyurl.com/6gs5yu

From Dr. Wong's office up to Woodside Road, up Kings Mountain Road, down Tunitas Creek Road and a short stop at the San Gregorio Road. Continue on Stage Road to the town of Pescadero to Cloverdale, Gazos Creek Road to Hwy 1. Then down Hwy 1 to Davenport for lunch. After lunch, it's south on Highway 1 to Bonny Doone Road, right on Smith Grade to Empire Grade, down Jamison Creek Road to Boulder Creek, then up Hwy 9 to the corner of Hwy 9 and Skyline at the rest stop 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!

Doc Wong Braking Confidence & Skills Workshop! Thursday, March 24, 6:30PM

(http://s25.postimg.org/i9nydv36j/Doc_Wong_Logo_1.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/i9nydv36j/)

Hi,

I'm sure you're aware how to brake effectively is as important a skill as all of the other skills necessary for smooth, confident and safe riding.  I'm finding that a lot of riders can improve their skills in how and when to apply the brakes.  There is definitely a safety issue with the incorrect use of the brakes.  This causes either increased braking distances and at worst locking up the brakes prematurely, sliding out or crashing.

(http://www.docwong.com/st-clinc/Ridingview1.jpg)

It's one of those skills that a lot of riders don't think of until the SHTF.  In this very unique clinic I'll be covering key points and techniques that every rider should know such as:  

Emergency Braking, Threshold Braking and Locking up the Front tire (how not to)
Braking at the limits of traction: How best to avoid crashing
Braking and Corner Entry Speed: How to Smoothly and Effectively Transition from one to the other
Critical Dos and Don'ts regarding Braking
Braking While In a Turn
Trail-braking
What Brake To Use: Front vas Rear brakes
Engine Braking
All About ABS
Braking and Downshifting
Downhill Braking

(http://www.docwong.com/st-clinc/Ridingview2.jpg)

Improving riding confidence comes with knowing, applying and practicing the basic skills of riding.  With improved knowledge and skill anyone can become a smoother and safer rider.  I hope to present this vital topic to you in a way that truly improves your understanding and ability to apply this while riding and braking. This is a non-riding workshop so bringing your motorcycle is not necessary.

The Doc Wong Riding Clinics are now in it's 18 year with now over 40,000 riders having attended!  Is that cool or what?  Anyway welcome to this new clinic, I hope you find it helpful.

Yours in great health, great riding and great fun!

(http://s25.postimg.org/i9nydv36j/Doc_Wong_Logo_1.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/i9nydv36j/)

I'm really excited about this workshop because of the wonderful feedback!

Not only do you get the knowledge necessary to ride with more confidence and less pain, but I'll also personally coach you on your bike.  This is an evening workshop and while we don't go out for a ride on this one, if you bring your bike, you'll get coached on it.

(http://www.docwong.com/st-clinc/ergodiagram.jpg)

When: Thursday, April 7, 2016! 6:30pm-8:30pm
Place:  Full Motion Chiropractic
            Carlmont Shopping Center (Next to Baskin Robbins)
            1021 Alameda De Las Pulgas

            (650) 365-7775

How to register: just e-mail me at: docwong@aol.com
Cost:  $0.00

This workshop is designed to help you make the necessary adjustments to your riding positons and to your bike to optimize your personal efficiency and comfort of riding your motorcycle in all conditions.

To achieve this, I'll be covering different riding styles or positions
on different bikes in differing conditions along with what needs to be changed to ergonomically fit your bike to you. Also, I'll cover the most common neck, back and wrist problems I see and what you can do to ride comfortably.

Riding Positions will include optimal positions for street, sport,
torquing, racing and dirt or dual sport riding. Which positions
produce optimum performance and which get riders into trouble along with which causes the most pain and what to do about it.

(http://www.docwong.com/st-clinc/ergo1.jpg)

I'll demonstrate on a couple of very different bikes, a sport bike and an upright dual sport bike. That way I can demonstrate the range of riding positions and the range of ergonomic adjustments you can do to your bike. Find out how certain riding styles and poor bike setup can be hazardous and how to solve them. The end result is you being more comfortable on your bike with less fatigue and having more fun!

(http://www.docwong.com/st-clinc/ergo2.jpg)

(http://www.docwong.com/st-clinc/ergo3.jpg)

The ergonomics part of this workshop will cover how to adjust your bike to your body and style of riding. The ergonomics of different bike types and body types will be addressed and participants will have a working knowledge of what do do with their bikes adjustments.Optimize your bike for your riding style. Adjusting levers, foot controls, handlebar bar placements

I'll also cover exercises and stretches for you neck, back and wrists.

After the talk and demonstrations, etc., we'll go outside where you'll get on your bike and I'll coach you on body position and make suggestions on the ergonomics of your motorcycle.

“Doc Wong Riding Clinics” and “GroupRides Forum” are pleased to bring you an interesting discussion about “World Travel On A Motorcycle”,

 
Date and Time:       Friday May 27, 2016, 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM
Location:                 Full Motion Chiropractic
                                1021 Alameda de las Pulgas, Belmont, CA


Hi,

It’s amazing how the world of motorcycling never gets boring. Have you ever considered or even dreamed of riding in other parts of this planet?  Here’s an opportunity come listen, see, experience and ask questions of someone who has.

(http://www.docwong.com/st-clinc/WT-1.jpeg)


Special guest speaker and fellow trouble making motorcyclist, Joe Steiner, is not only a very experienced world traveler, but he’s a retired professor, professional photographer and videographer!  Growing up in in Odessa Ukraine he was often chased, and arrested by the local militia for riding motorcycles,  of questionable ownership, without driving license.  His first legal bike was a Ural with a side car.  He always had 2 passengers: the dog on a pillion seat, and the gramophone in a side car.  The dog was well trained- every time he saw a good looking girl, he would jump in a side car to play the most popular vinyl... 
 
Joe has attended multiple rides with the “Doc Wong Riding Clinics”, he visited every training session at least twice. He is also among the usual suspects of “GroupRides Forum”, a motorcycle riding community. 

Joe usually does a 3-5 weeks solo trip every year on his Vstrom -650. He’s traveled extensively in USA and Canada, and Mexico.  Just to meet Sarah Pailin and to take a look at his motherland he rode his bike to Prudho Bay Alaska. GS800' Patagonia: Chile and Argentina. 

For his 65th birthday he rode the bike at North and South Poles, and singlehanded a 30 ft.  boat to Mexico. 

For his 67th birthday he organized  a group of 8 riders from GroupRides Forum for a 10 day ride on Vstroms in Bolcans: Serbia, Bosnia, Montenegro, and Croatia (see photos: http://goo.gl/fY4Mek (http://goo.gl/fY4Mek))

To say he’s a world motorcycle traveler is an understatement!
 

(http://www.docwong.com/st-clinc/WT-2.jpeg)

(http://www.docwong.com/st-clinc/WT-3.jpeg)


Here’s what Joe will share with us, besides absolutely beautiful photos and videos of some of his adventures, he’ll cover:

What's involved? 
How to Start? 
How to Plan?
What to Expect?
What to bring or not bring?
What to eat or drink or not to eat or drink?
Medical issues?
Personal fitness requirements, needs?
Skill levels needed?
Type of bikes to use?
Overall logistics of doing such trips?

And of course any questions you’d like to ask.

Besides absolutely beautiful photos and videos of some of his past adventures, he has a special treat - Joe Seiner is putting a band together for September 2016, "In the Heart of Ancient Silk Road: Bhutan"  (Details:http://www.meetup.com/GroupRides/events/229017793/) .

Are you ready to ride Royal Enfield in Royal Kingdom of Bhutan this September?

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

Dr. Harry Wong, a prominent Belmont chiropractor and extremely knowledgeable sport rider, is holding a monthly series of MotorcycleRiding 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.

The Doc Wong Riding Clinics are now in it's 15th year!

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

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

SKILL LEVEL 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.  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 ofexpertise required. 

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, tanktop, 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 but not required. You are responsible for your own safety.

WORKSHOP FORMAT: (Each month is a different riding skills topic)

1. Meet at Doc Wong's Chiropractic oiffice in Carlmont Shopping Center at 9 AM. After signing wavers, Doc Wong gives an hour lecture on the day's riding topic. He'll also go over Riding Within Your Abilities, Group Riding, and Road Manners. You'll be asked to fill out an optional survey for riding feedback and health issues. Then we will be split up into small groups with ride leader volunteers to lead you thru the hills.

(http://www.docwong.com/st-clinc/Streetclinic-4.jpeg)

2. The Ride: 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 theride. As volunteer riders, they are often very willing to help you inany 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'tcontinue until everyone has arrived.

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

Ride Route: http://tinyurl.com/6gs5yu

From Dr. Wong's office up to Woodside Road, up Kings Mountain Road, down Tunitas Creek Road and a short stop at the San Gregorio Road. Continue on Stage Road to the town of Pescadero to Cloverdale, Gazos Creek Road to Hwy 1. Then down Hwy 1 to Davenport for lunch. After lunch, it's south on Highway 1 to Bonny Doone Road, right on Smith Grade to Empire Grade, down Jamison Creek Road to Boulder Creek, then up Hwy 9 to the corner of Hwy 9 and Skyline at the rest stop 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!

Michael Nelson, San Francisco, CA

Special Doc Wong Workshop: Crash Scene-Life and Death Workshop, Th Night, May 26, 2016 6:30PM


Hi,

I lost a dear friend several years ago in a motorcycle accident and the information in this workshop may have saved his life.  Life can get pretty wild sometimes and just calling and waiting for emergency services to arrive may not be enough to save a life.  Come find out what you need to know, pro-actively, to help at the scene of a motorcycle crash and assist Emergency Medical Services.  Jill Jaehne will attend to share her experienced insights too.

He’ll share with you how to manage or help at the scene of an accident that may make the difference between life and death!  Much of this is not mentioned in standard First Aid/CPR classes.  This is VITAL because when help does arrive, they can be vastly assisted by your interactions!!

Paul will cover the vital topics of:
 
--Who’s coming when you call 911?  What agencies and what are their roles.  What you need to know.  Who responds in what area?

—How to manage or help at the scene of an accident.  What do you do before help arrives, how do you make the roadway safe and prevent secondary accidents?  When should you call 911? What do you say?  Who should call the shots before they come?  

—First Aid considerations: Should you move the rider?  Remove his helmet? CPR, trauma, tourniquets and more.  

—Communications: What to say to 911, police officers and Medics.  How to describe the crash and why this is important to medical staff.

—Gear: what protection works best?  Medical history ID.  What should be in a motorcyclist’s First Aid pack.
 
—Importance of speed of transport and what to do if something is wrong.

Doc Wong Braking Confidence & Skills Workshop! Thursday, May 19, 6:30PM

(http://s25.postimg.org/i9nydv36j/Doc_Wong_Logo_1.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/i9nydv36j/)

Hi,

I'm sure you're aware how to brake effectively is as important a skill as all of the other skills necessary for smooth, confident and safe riding.  I'm finding that a lot of riders can improve their skills in how and when to apply the brakes.  There is definitely a safety issue with the incorrect use of the brakes.  This causes either increased braking distances and at worst locking up the brakes prematurely, sliding out or crashing.

(http://www.docwong.com/st-clinc/Ridingview1.jpg)

It's one of those skills that a lot of riders don't think of until the SHTF.  In this very unique clinic I'll be covering key points and techniques that every rider should know such as:  

Emergency Braking, Threshold Braking and Locking up the Front tire (how not to)
Braking at the limits of traction: How best to avoid crashing
Braking and Corner Entry Speed: How to Smoothly and Effectively Transition from one to the other
Critical Dos and Don'ts regarding Braking
Braking While In a Turn
Trail-braking
What Brake To Use: Front vas Rear brakes
Engine Braking
All About ABS
Braking and Downshifting
Downhill Braking

(http://www.docwong.com/st-clinc/Ridingview2.jpg)

Improving riding confidence comes with knowing, applying and practicing the basic skills of riding.  With improved knowledge and skill anyone can become a smoother and safer rider.  I hope to present this vital topic to you in a way that truly improves your understanding and ability to apply this while riding and braking. This is a non-riding workshop so bringing your motorcycle is not necessary.

The Doc Wong Riding Clinics are now in it's 18 year with now over 40,000 riders having attended!  Is that cool or what?  Anyway welcome to this new clinic, I hope you find it helpful.

Yours in great health, great riding and great fun!

Doc Wong Basic Suspension Workshop Part 1—June 23, Thurs Night!

(http://s25.postimg.org/i9nydv36j/Doc_Wong_Logo_1.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/i9nydv36j/)

(See the new article on Doc Wong in Cycle World! - http://www.cycleworld.com/doc-wong-motorcycle-teacher-and-chiropractor-five-reasons-why (http://www.cycleworld.com/doc-wong-motorcycle-teacher-and-chiropractor-five-reasons-why))

Hi,

You're invited the next Basic Suspension Part One Workshop!

I'm hyper-excited, this workshop will demystify and really enhance your knowledge of suspension setup. It is geared for those of you who are neophytes in suspension to those of you who want to know more about how set up your bike properly!

One month there was even a guy that flew from Colorado to attend the workshop and flew back the next morning!

What: Basic Suspension Part One
When: Thursday, June 23, 2016, 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm
Where: Doc Wong's Full Motion Chiropractic Office
          Carlmont Village Shopping Center
          1021 Alameda De Las Pulgas
          Belmont, CA 94002
Cost: $0.00
How to sign up:  just e-mail me at: docwong@aol.com

(http://www.docwong.com/st-clinc/suspension1.jpg)

About the topic, "Basic Suspension Setup": Worksheets have been made up with pertinent data that will be very simple and understandable. I will even have basic terminology defined so that you will know the terms and how they apply to making your bike feel good, bad, bumpy, springy, etc. The workshop will give you a very good understanding of how a suspension works and what you need to do to your bike to improve it's handling characteristics.

(http://www.docwong.com/st-clinc/suspension2.jpeg)

Workshop format:  

1.  Basic terms with demonstrations on a sport bike. I'll go over each term one by one and demonstrate them so that you will see them in action.

2.  Adjustments and how they effect the handling of your motorcycle and how you can do them on your bike.

3.  Poor handling characteristics due to "mis-adjustments" and how they can be remedied.

The workshop will be kept simple enough to ensure that when you leave, you'll have a very good understanding of how a suspension works and an idea of how to adjust your own bike. You'll have handouts and worksheets to make notes on too!

Due to the content of the materials presented, parental guidance is suggested as your enhanced understanding of how your suspension works and its subsequent demystification may bring about wide grins!

We do have to limit the number of riders to 40, due to the fact that we want everyone to see how the adjustments are made on the motorcycle.  

Want to use your bike as the demo bike for the evening? E-mail me with the specifics of your bike:  Make, model, year and if it has adjustable front and back preload.

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

Dr. Harry Wong, a prominent Belmont chiropractor and extremely knowledgeable sport rider, is holding a monthly series of MotorcycleRiding 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.

The Doc Wong Riding Clinics are now in it's 15th year!

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

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

SKILL LEVEL 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.  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 ofexpertise required.

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, tanktop, 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 but not required. You are responsible for your own safety.

WORKSHOP FORMAT: (Each month is a different riding skills topic)

1. Meet at Doc Wong's Chiropractic oiffice in Carlmont Shopping Center at 9 AM. After signing wavers, Doc Wong gives an hour lecture on the day's riding topic. He'll also go over Riding Within Your Abilities, Group Riding, and Road Manners. You'll be asked to fill out an optional survey for riding feedback and health issues. Then we will be split up into small groups with ride leader volunteers to lead you thru the hills.

(http://www.docwong.com/st-clinc/Streetclinic-4.jpeg)

2. The Ride: 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 theride. As volunteer riders, they are often very willing to help you inany 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'tcontinue until everyone has arrived.

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

Ride Route: http://tinyurl.com/6gs5yu (http://tinyurl.com/6gs5yu)

From Dr. Wong's office up to Woodside Road, up Kings Mountain Road, down Tunitas Creek Road and a short stop at the San Gregorio Road. Continue on Stage Road to the town of Pescadero to Cloverdale, Gazos Creek Road to Hwy 1. Then down Hwy 1 to Davenport for lunch. After lunch, it's south on Highway 1 to Bonny Doone Road, right on Smith Grade to Empire Grade, down Jamison Creek Road to Boulder Creek, then up Hwy 9 to the corner of Hwy 9 and Skyline at the rest stop 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!

Doc Wong Braking Confidence & Skills Workshop! Thursday, July 14, 6:30PM

(http://s25.postimg.org/i9nydv36j/Doc_Wong_Logo_1.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/i9nydv36j/)

(See the new article on Doc Wong in Cycle World! - http://www.cycleworld.com/doc-wong-motorcycle-teacher-and-chiropractor-five-reasons-why (http://www.cycleworld.com/doc-wong-motorcycle-teacher-and-chiropractor-five-reasons-why))

Hi,

I'm sure you're aware how to brake effectively is as important a skill as all of the other skills necessary for smooth, confident and safe riding.  I'm finding that a lot of riders can improve their skills in how and when to apply the brakes.  There is definitely a safety issue with the incorrect use of the brakes.  This causes either increased braking distances and at worst locking up the brakes prematurely, sliding out or crashing.

(http://www.docwong.com/st-clinc/Ridingview1.jpg)

It's one of those skills that a lot of riders don't think of until the SHTF.  In this very unique clinic I'll be covering key points and techniques that every rider should know such as:  

Emergency Braking, Threshold Braking and Locking up the Front tire (how not to)
Braking at the limits of traction: How best to avoid crashing
Braking and Corner Entry Speed: How to Smoothly and Effectively Transition from one to the other
Critical Dos and Don'ts regarding Braking
Braking While In a Turn
Trail-braking
What Brake To Use: Front vas Rear brakes
Engine Braking
All About ABS
Braking and Downshifting
Downhill Braking

(http://www.docwong.com/st-clinc/Ridingview2.jpg)

Improving riding confidence comes with knowing, applying and practicing the basic skills of riding.  With improved knowledge and skill anyone can become a smoother and safer rider.  I hope to present this vital topic to you in a way that truly improves your understanding and ability to apply this while riding and braking. This is a non-riding workshop so bringing your motorcycle is not necessary.

The Doc Wong Riding Clinics are now in it's 18 year with now over 40,000 riders having attended!  Is that cool or what?  Anyway welcome to this new clinic, I hope you find it helpful.

Yours in great health, great riding and great fun!

I'm really excited about this workshop because of the wonderful feedback!

Not only do you get the knowledge necessary to ride with more confidence and less pain, but I'll also personally coach you on your bike.  This is an evening workshop and while we don't go out for a ride on this one, if you bring your bike, you'll get coached on it.

(http://www.docwong.com/st-clinc/ergodiagram.jpg)

When: Thursday, July 21, 2016! 6:30pm-8:30pm
Place:  Full Motion Chiropractic
            Carlmont Shopping Center (Next to Baskin Robbins)
            1021 Alameda De Las Pulgas

            (650) 365-7775

How to register: just e-mail me at: docwong@aol.com
Cost:  $0.00

This workshop is designed to help you make the necessary adjustments to your riding positons and to your bike to optimize your personal efficiency and comfort of riding your motorcycle in all conditions.

To achieve this, I'll be covering different riding styles or positions
on different bikes in differing conditions along with what needs to be changed to ergonomically fit your bike to you. Also, I'll cover the most common neck, back and wrist problems I see and what you can do to ride comfortably.

Riding Positions will include optimal positions for street, sport,
torquing, racing and dirt or dual sport riding. Which positions
produce optimum performance and which get riders into trouble along with which causes the most pain and what to do about it.

(http://www.docwong.com/st-clinc/ergo1.jpg)

I'll demonstrate on a couple of very different bikes, a sport bike and an upright dual sport bike. That way I can demonstrate the range of riding positions and the range of ergonomic adjustments you can do to your bike. Find out how certain riding styles and poor bike setup can be hazardous and how to solve them. The end result is you being more comfortable on your bike with less fatigue and having more fun!

(http://www.docwong.com/st-clinc/ergo2.jpg)

(http://www.docwong.com/st-clinc/ergo3.jpg)

The ergonomics part of this workshop will cover how to adjust your bike to your body and style of riding. The ergonomics of different bike types and body types will be addressed and participants will have a working knowledge of what do do with their bikes adjustments.Optimize your bike for your riding style. Adjusting levers, foot controls, handlebar bar placements

I'll also cover exercises and stretches for you neck, back and wrists.

After the talk and demonstrations, etc., we'll go outside where you'll get on your bike and I'll coach you on body position and make suggestions on the ergonomics of your motorcycle.

(http://s25.postimg.org/i9nydv36j/Doc_Wong_Logo_1.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/i9nydv36j/)

Topic: Basic Suspension Workshop -  Part 2

          Carlmont Shopping Center (Next to Baskin Robbins Ice Cream)
          1021 Alameda De Las Pulgas

Time: Thursday night, August 11, 2016 from 6:30 PM-8:30 PM

Cost: the cost has doubled  ;-)   ( $0 * 2 = $0 )

How to sign up:  e-mail me at:  docwong@aol.com

(http://www.docwong.com/st-clinc/suspension1.jpg)

Hi,

You're invited to the next:  Basic Suspension Workshop - Part 2

Here's the only catch:  It's limited to 35 riders because we will be taking apart and examining the internals of a set of forks.  Yes, you'll see the innards of the thing and see how it works to gain a deeper understanding of how suspension works.  Those who attended the last Basic Suspension Workshop (Level 1) will get first priority.  

One month there was even a guy that flew from Colorado to attend the workshop and flew back the next morning!

The Suspension Seminar Part 2, should be extraordinarily interesting tonight, I will go through the normal presentation portion of the program and will vary from the previous format by adding a lab where I'll be setting up a folding card table to perform a complete "piece by piece" dissection process on a full front fork assembly, and a rear shock assembly, while the students observe.  We'll be identifying the function of each individual item, as it's removed.  Should be a very educational experience, and rare opportunity for the riders in attendance.  I'm excited about implementing this new "twist" on the suspension training program!

I'm very pleased with the materials that I've put together so far, as I believe they will be quite effective at directly addressing the questions and issues that most motorcyclists have regarding the 'black magic' of setting up their compression and rebound adjustments, as well as other related aspects of suspension tuning.

Having attended Suspension Seminar Part 1 is not a prerequisite for coming to Part 2.

You'll also get a working knowledge of how compression and rebound works on a bike by actually adjusting the suspension.

(http://www.docwong.com/st-clinc/suspension2.jpeg)

"The format for The "PART 2" seminar looks like this:
******************************************************
1. Spring "Preload": "Setting proper "SAG", a quick review"
2. Compression & Rebound : "Solving the mystery"
3. Dissembling a set of forks and examining it's internals
4. Advanced suspension tuning: "Going beyond the factory": Wheelbase, Fork tube height. Fork oil level/viscosity
5. Troubleshooting common bike handling complaints (student contribution)
6. Cartridge fork dissembly
7. Final Question & Answer session

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

Dr. Harry Wong, a prominent Belmont chiropractor and extremely knowledgeable sport rider, is holding a monthly series of MotorcycleRiding 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.

The Doc Wong Riding Clinics are now in it's 15th year!

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

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

SKILL LEVEL 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.  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 ofexpertise required. 

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, tanktop, 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 but not required. You are responsible for your own safety.

WORKSHOP FORMAT: (Each month is a different riding skills topic)

1. Meet at Doc Wong's Chiropractic oiffice in Carlmont Shopping Center at 9 AM. After signing wavers, Doc Wong gives an hour lecture on the day's riding topic. He'll also go over Riding Within Your Abilities, Group Riding, and Road Manners. You'll be asked to fill out an optional survey for riding feedback and health issues. Then we will be split up into small groups with ride leader volunteers to lead you thru the hills.

(http://www.docwong.com/st-clinc/Streetclinic-4.jpeg)

2. The Ride: 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 theride. As volunteer riders, they are often very willing to help you inany 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'tcontinue until everyone has arrived.

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

Ride Route: http://tinyurl.com/6gs5yu

From Dr. Wong's office up to Woodside Road, up Kings Mountain Road, down Tunitas Creek Road and a short stop at the San Gregorio Road. Continue on Stage Road to the town of Pescadero to Cloverdale, Gazos Creek Road to Hwy 1. Then down Hwy 1 to Davenport for lunch. After lunch, it's south on Highway 1 to Bonny Doone Road, right on Smith Grade to Empire Grade, down Jamison Creek Road to Boulder Creek, then up Hwy 9 to the corner of Hwy 9 and Skyline at the rest stop 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!

This workshop is designed to help you make the necessary adjustments to your riding positons and to your bike to optimize your personal efficiency and comfort of riding your motorcycle in all conditions.

To achieve this, I'll be covering different riding styles or positions
on different bikes in differing conditions along with what needs to be changed to ergonomically fit your bike to you. Also, I'll cover the most common neck, back and wrist problems I see and what you can do to ride comfortably.

Riding Positions will include optimal positions for street, sport,
torquing, racing and dirt or dual sport riding. Which positions
produce optimum performance and which get riders into trouble along with which causes the most pain and what to do about it.

(http://www.docwong.com/st-clinc/ergo1.jpg)

I'll demonstrate on a couple of very different bikes, a sport bike and an upright dual sport bike. That way I can demonstrate the range of riding positions and the range of ergonomic adjustments you can do to your bike. Find out how certain riding styles and poor bike setup can be hazardous and how to solve them. The end result is you being more comfortable on your bike with less fatigue and having more fun!

The ergonomics part of this workshop will cover how to adjust your bike to your body and style of riding. The ergonomics of different bike types and body types will be addressed and participants will have a working knowledge of what do do with their bikes adjustments.Optimize your bike for your riding style. Adjusting levers, foot controls, handlebar bar placements

I'll also cover exercises and stretches for you neck, back and wrists.

After the talk and demonstrations, etc., we'll go outside where you'll get on your bike and I'll coach you on body position and make suggestions on the ergonomics of your motorcycle.

Doc Wong Braking Confidence & Skills Workshop! Thursday, Sept 29, 6:30PM

(http://s25.postimg.org/i9nydv36j/Doc_Wong_Logo_1.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/i9nydv36j/)

Hi,

I'm sure you're aware how to brake effectively is as important a skill as all of the other skills necessary for smooth, confident and safe riding.  I'm finding that a lot of riders can improve their skills in how and when to apply the brakes.  There is definitely a safety issue with the incorrect use of the brakes.  This causes either increased braking distances and at worst locking up the brakes prematurely, sliding out or crashing.

(http://www.docwong.com/st-clinc/Ridingview1.jpg)

It's one of those skills that a lot of riders don't think of until the SHTF.  In this very unique clinic I'll be covering key points and techniques that every rider should know such as:  

Emergency Braking, Threshold Braking and Locking up the Front tire (how not to)
Braking at the limits of traction: How best to avoid crashing
Braking and Corner Entry Speed: How to Smoothly and Effectively Transition from one to the other
Critical Dos and Don'ts regarding Braking
Braking While In a Turn
Trail-braking
What Brake To Use: Front vas Rear brakes
Engine Braking
All About ABS
Braking and Downshifting
Downhill Braking

(http://www.docwong.com/st-clinc/Ridingview2.jpg)

Improving riding confidence comes with knowing, applying and practicing the basic skills of riding.  With improved knowledge and skill anyone can become a smoother and safer rider.  I hope to present this vital topic to you in a way that truly improves your understanding and ability to apply this while riding and braking. This is a non-riding workshop so bringing your motorcycle is not necessary.

The Doc Wong Riding Clinics are now in it's 18 year with now over 40,000 riders having attended!  Is that cool or what?  Anyway welcome to this new clinic, I hope you find it helpful.

Yours in great health, great riding and great fun!

Doc Wong Adventure Dual Sport Clinic - Nov 4 and 6!

(http://s25.postimg.org/i9nydv36j/Doc_Wong_Logo_1.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/i9nydv36j/)

(See the new article on Doc Wong in Cycle World! - http://www.cycleworld.com/doc-wong-motorcycle-teacher-and-chiropractor-five-reasons-why (http://www.cycleworld.com/doc-wong-motorcycle-teacher-and-chiropractor-five-reasons-why))

Hi,
 
Due to some very popular requests, I've created this special clinic for adventurous dual-sport, dirt and street riders. Basically anyone who wants to improve their dirt skills. From the consistent feedback we've been getting, the new format has been getting impressive results with riders gaining greatly improved dirt skills and confidence!

(http://www.docwong.com/st-clinc/dualsport1.jpg)
 
If you're a street rider and don't have a dual-sport or dirt bike, come to Friday night's lecture and demonstrations as I guarantee that 
it will be an educational experience for you.  Though I'd have to say that I've had a rider show up Sunday with a full dress Harley Davidson motorcycle that did the dirt clinic. He did well too!
 
Not only will you learn Doc Wong's 12 Basic Fundamentals of Dirt Riding Skills, but you'll get the most important data point of riding any motorcycle competently.   I'll cover vital topics and drills dealing 
with coordinated balance, controlled sliding of the rear AND front wheels, controlled wheelies, hillclimbs and much more.
 
So how do I get newer Adventure Dirt/Dual-Sport riders to, safely, do things like lock up the front wheel, do wheelies etc all 4 hours of drills????  Attend Friday night's lecture and demonstration and find out about Doc Wong's Proven Riding Confidence Generator!!
 
If you're a more experienced dirt rider I'd appreciate any help you'd like to give in leading a group, etc.
 
This clinic is held on two separate days.
 
**Please note: Friday night's 
talk is a prerequisite to Sunday's drilling session.
 
Cost: $20.00 donation to the Doc Wong Riding Clinics for clinic costs. Sound too good to be true?  Yes, but it's true and has been for the last 21 years of the Doc Wong Riding Clinics with now
over 41,000 riders having attended my various events! The $20 donation is appreciated and if you want to donate more, that would be
wonderful, but you won't be asked to.
 
Part A: Friday evening, November 4 at 6:30 PM will be a 2 1/2 hour talk at my chiropractic office:
 
Full Motion Chiropractic
1021 Alameda de las Pulgas
Belmont, CA 94002
(650) 365-7775

(http://www.docwong.com/st-clinc/dualsport2.jpg)
 
Part B: Sunday 4 hours of drills, drills and more drills. I can pretty much guarantee that after this your dirt riding confidence will significantly improve along with feeling much more confident with your street riding, especially when road conditions get slippery.

We will practice and drill the exact concepts that were explained and demonstrated on Friday night!!  The drilling location is subject to change so I'll announce that Friday at my office at Full Motion Chiropractic. 
 
TO REGISTER:  E-mail me ASAP at:  Docwong@aol.com  (limited to the first
40 riders, so if you register and can't make it, please let me know 
ASAP as there will be a waiting list)

(http://www.docwong.com/st-clinc/dualsport3.jpg)
 
Anyone is welcome to come to the evening "Dirt Riding Workshop-Talks 
and Demonstrations" part of the clinic and is not limited in numbers, 
however the practical "Doc Wong Adventure Dirt Drills" part of the clinic is limited to 40 riders.
 
----------------
WHAT TO BRING TO THE DIRT RIDE
 
A. Snacks, lunch and water.
 
B. Gear: Minimally have a good helmet, gloves, heavy boots, blue jeans and a long sleeved shirt. Full dirt riding gear is ideal: Dirt helmet, goggles, chest protector, elbow guards, gloves, knee pads and dirt 
boots. Regular dual sport riding and touring gear is ok too, but be aware it may get hot.
 
C. Mechanical: bike in good order, knobbies will work best, however dual-sport tires will work also. Street bike tires will provide a unique experience! ;-)
 
D. You can bring luggage if you want.  We'll be at a location where you can stow some gear.
 
E. Type of bike:  at this time you can bring just about any kind of bike.  The drills area is flat with various paths.  If your feeling adventurous, just bring a street bike and go slow, remember your responsible for yourself.
