Ryan Leech's 30 Day Wheelie Challenge
Master Waki provided the artwork for this program. Guy is a genius with pen and ink, a philosopher, dad, a keen observer of life, and dedicated mountain bike fanatic. I know he is prone to troll when the situation warrants, but I think that if you read his words you can tell pretty quickly when he's yanking your chain. This isn't one of those times. Waki- good job on the artwork. I signed up for the course in part because of your artwork, as well as previous comments you made, and videos you released related to your own wheelie practice. Keep up the good work!

The child in the seat will be a perfect counterbalance for wheelieing. Should be lots of fun as long as you don't loop out. Triple 8's and Dad's bum will keep baby's neck from snapping forward in the event of a panic brake grab during wheelie attempts.

Download Ryan's "Mastering the Art of Trials and a trials bike and you've got years of work you can do 20 minutes at a time in very little space, and with little light in those winter months. Infinitely rewarding... kind of like finding the balance point on a good wheelie!

Video: Downtime with Josh Bryceland
Anti-corporate rant follows. Feel free to skip. @J50005, I hear lots of talk in the US about personal responsibility, and very little about corporate responsibility. It is very convenient to constantly throw out the call for personal responsibility and skate over any notion of corporate responsibility aside from their responsibility to turn a profit for stakeholders. I'm tired of a corporate culture that relieves them from being held to account for their willful misdeeds, e.g. financial institutions too big to fail despite the fact huge banks took wanton risks that put entire countries on the brink of financial collapse, put millions out of work and cost those responsible nothing; or mining companies that make water polluted for miles around and then file for bankruptcy rather than have to pay for the damage they caused. Chain restaurants that manipulate the bliss-point of their menus to bring customers coming back again and again despite the clear indication that what they serve is unhealthy. The list is as monstrous as the crimes for which they are not 'responsible', and since they live longer than we humans, and have no personal liability, they can have legislative agendas that are generations long to help ensure their continued growth and political power. I like the Rampage and Joyride as much as the next person, but have no love for a range of products ( so-called 'energy drinks') that clearly are unhealthy for young people especially, to consume. They're just drug dealers who happen to operate somewhere within the lines of legality. They should pony up and take some responsibility too, not just the individual who engages in an activity they sponsor.

Zen is set in the US, and ostensibly follows a father and son on a motorcycle trip from Minnesota to California in the 1950's or early 60's. The physical journey mirrors the philosophic re-awakening of the narrator. Not so much about either Zen or Maintenance, more about philosophy and what may be a tragic split in Greek philosophy that is responsible for much of how we Westerners view the world around us. No way to do the book justice in a post. It is the most unsettling (as in stirring me to question how I see the world) and thought provoking book I've ever read. Honestly, pm me and with your address, and I'll send you a copy. I like it that much. You too WAKI if you're interested. Pirsig lived in Gothenburg (is an Anglicized version of your city of residence?) for some years in the 80's.

Ah perspective. (fortunate to be a father to good children, and a teacher with great students... of course there are those who see many of my students differently) Might be time to re-read Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance.
