    GT Giant highlights for 2013

    Hi all! With the forum and website updates being completed, the registration for the 2013 edition of the GT Giant program should be up soon on the events registration page. Will be offering the Giant Trip, Giant Training, and Giant Track for your motorcycling fix.

    First, the Giant Trip offers something for everyone across this great nation. Find it, take a picture of it, get the receipt from the chartered club rally, and turn-it all in to win the 50/50 prize.

    Second up is the Giant Training day with Walt Fulton and Streetmasters doing their program on the roads of Oregon with Chris Peris doing the high-tech Chris Peris Riding school at Oregon Raceway Park. Two Daytona 200 racers, two national champions, man, this is a hard one to choose between. Bring the Airhead, bring the S1000RR, bring the GS, bring the RT, and bring a camera to record this great experience.

    Third is the Giant Track on the rally grounds. David Hough, Coach Stroud, and Bob Reichenberg are planning a big day with riding and motorcycle control seminar. The seminar will begin with a discussion and finish with on-bike demonstrations. Come on out to see these greats of the MOA and AMA Hall of Fame members at the rally. And if that's not all, we even have a nice motorcycle gymkhana setup for you to run aganist the clock, and your friends, in a chance to win a custom suspension for your ride.

    Hope this got your attention and if you would like to help out, please drop me a line!

    Here's a link to the Streetmasters's course. We'll be hosting it from the Dalles to the Salem! Join Walt and Nancy on this great training tour with a stop at the track to make a few loops with your friends at the Chris Peris School!

    Oregon Raceway Park form an on-bike perspective. I'm getting goosebumps and leaning left to right in my chair dreaming about July 16th's members-only training day!

    The host hotel for the GT Giant is the wonderful Dalles Inn in Dalles, Oregon.

    Come on out and see if Tom Cutter's goatee has gotten longer, the airhead faster, the Supermoto sliding more, and your friends having more fun!

    Just got done talking with Walt, Nancy, and Chris about the big training day. We plan on having an informal reception the evening of the 15th at the host hotel. This will be a great time to meet and talk with the instructors to gain some insights before tackling the curves of ORP and the Oregon mountain roads.

    JavaD, what happened? Not enough interest? I had just begun to research this opportunity. Regardless, thanks for volunteering.
