Maryhill Loops Road Cornering Clinic - Saturday 8/24/2018
On Saturday morning, August 24th from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. registered attendees of The Rally in the Gorge can opt to participate in special clinic led by Jesse Murphy and his team from Truitt Motorcycle Education. There is an additional fee to cover the cost of instructors and opening up the road for use during the cornering clinic. (The road is otherwise open to all rally attendees at no additional charge Saturday afternoon from 1-4 pm.)
This years focus will be body positioning. As Jesse puts it "Body movin’, body movin’…….. Our bodies have a huge impact in the handling of our motorcycles. No matter what shape of motorcycle you have be it sport bike, bagger, adventure, standard, or even scooter, the way we use our body can make riding your motorcycle better. This year we are going to explore how to use our bodies to make our riding more FUN, easier, and, yes, even safer. Join us for a fun morning on the historic Maryhill Loops Road with Truitt Motorcycle Education. We are going to work on ways to actively use our bodies on curvy roads to get more enjoyment out of our riding. Looking forward to riding with you at the Maryhill Loops Road clinic."
The Historic Maryhill Loops Road is unlike riding on a track as it features a variety of real world corners, including decreasing radius, blind, linked and a double apex/blind turn. Participating riders get hours of riding the road under one way flow without waiting in line, providing the opportunity for serious riding improvement.
Northwest motorcycle safety instructor, Bruce Scott, puts it this way - "A few years back, myself and another instructor did Spokane raceways on a Friday and Maryhill on Saturday. As fun as the track was, both of us agreed that Maryhill was way more fun."
