LANG'S OFF ROAD SUSPEnsion SEMINAR

Lang's Off Road Presents:

2 Day Suspension Seminar Class

OCT 21, 24. 2021

THIS IS THE ULTIMATE SUSPENSION SEMINAR YOU HAVE BEEN

WAITING FOR!


LEARN IT ALL IN 2 DAYS!

Have you ever wanted to adjust your suspension settings and been afraid you would just mess it up? Do you know that your factory springs or the used ones you bought with the bike are probably not ideal for you? Can you change them out or service the fluid? Gas a rear shock? Set your sag, comp or rebound? Chances are, you don't!

That's why Lang's off Road & Rally Connex are hosting this amazing 2 day seminar to teach you all the in's and out's of your suspensions system. Each student is required to bring there own Enduro or Dual Sport Bike of choice to the class. By the end of the weekend you will have a complete understanding of your suspension. Day 1 is a in-class session. Day 2 is a hands on off road ride with instructors guiding you on how to adjust your suspension in multiple off road scenarios. Read more below to find out what's included in this unique opportunity! This class will focus primarily on Enduro and small Dualsport type motorcycle suspensions.

HOW THE CLASSES WORK!
- This seminar workshop is a 2 day class.

- Day 1 is a in-classroom work shop where we cover all the attributes about the suspension system on your bike. Setup and adjustment of the suspension on your bike. How to service your suspension, How the suspension works internally, spring rates and what they mean etc... See "Topics covered in Day 1" list below"

- Day 2 we are out on the trails testing and tuning your new suspension setup. Bikes have adjustable suspension for many different terrains, so why not learn how to adjust them! This seminar allows you to do that with a suspension expert beside you on the trails. The teacher is always helping you with the right setting for the right environment. We will learn what works and what doesn't work. Riders need to know the importance between what works right and what doesn't work in a controlled environment. This will allow you to make better decisions on the necessary changes you do the next time you head out on your bike for a safer and more controlled ride.

WHAT YOU NEED BEFORE THE CLASS?
Before you can start to partake in this detailed class, your existing suspension should be tested for the proper spring rate, your front forks and rear shock are in good working order. It will be counter productive attempting to gain the full potential of this seminar with poor suspension to start with.

Lang's off Road has a large selection of springs for both front and rear suspension components on your bike. Lang's has given students that sign up a deal on parts and service you will need done before the class. You must have your service completed no less than 2 weeks before the class date. This will help us make sure your parts are in stock before the class begins. During the registration process you will be asked multiple questions to help our tech's pre sell you the appropriate springs and parts you will need for your bike. Bring you riding gear as well. This will help you set the "race sag or ride sag"
