May kicked off with our focus on celebrating women riders. Launched with our sponsorship and attending of the Mother Rucker Choppers Foundation IFRD. But our “togetHER” campaign continues with three rider clinics and garage nights, geared specifically to building skills and confidence with our female riders. Last Saturday we had the closed course, skills and drills riding clinic. Ladies had the opportunity to be coached in an advanced closed course by Kenny and Cody. We practiced U-Turns, curves and figure 8s.
The course started with us walking the obstacle course to gain insight on just how far you should be turning your neck and looking out into where you want to end up as you exit. Ladies lined us and watched as other road the cones and cheered them on in support as they nailed it. We enjoyed Shaved Ice from Ice Ice Shavey, a cool concept owned and operated by a 13 year old young lady. Ice Ice Shavey joins our FTL members benefit program by offering $20 off when you schedule your event with them and mention you are a Full Throttle Law member. Call them today to book your next party 702-625-2293.
We had our first of two Garage Nights for May on Thursday. Hosted at Boulder Choppers, ladies got to get greasy and dive in to what makes brakes work, what needs to be maintained, how to inspect them and then how to change their own brake pads. The timing was perfect for the demo bike because that motorcycle had some major braking system failures. Attendees got to see first hand what lack of maintenance can do to the rotors, calipers and pads. It was quite eye-opening for all. We enjoyed wings, shaved ice and wonderful company. About half the biker chicks stayed after class for an encore bike. They got to dive in to a late model Harley Davidson and work on new skills while fresh on the brain.
Don’t miss our last May Ladies Only Garage Night on May 27th. We will roll up our sleeves and get grimy again as we learn to change our own oil. Once again this totally FREE clinic will be at Boulder Choppers taught by Kenny and Bernie, mechanics with combined experience of about 75 years. You can click on the Facebook event and mark yourself GOING. We look forward to more of these in the future.
