Mark and Mario took the Yamaha Champions Riding School Sunset Clinic last month, joining us at Pueblo Motorsports Park for the four-hour street-riding clinic. Their wives tagged along and listened peripherally, then watched the riding action from the fences. About an hour into the clinic, things...
