Hi Jay,

I have a 2006 DL650 V-Strom I'd be willing to part with if you're interested in that kind of bike. I'm between PBG and Stuart daily.

Great report and wonderful scenery. My mom (not Greek) was named after the island. Many people (in the US) don't even know it's a Greek island. She appreciates the uniqueness of the name, though.

We had a 'dirt riding since 8' student in my MSF course some years ago that failed the practical test twice because he kept putting a foot out. Sometimes (bad) habits are worse than a clean slate.
