haha..

his tip was look where you want to go , and twist the throttle.

it works surprisingly well, im just starting to understand the weight transfer from braking versus accelerating..

a bit late, and im a terribly slow learner.. Im a better rider after today though, than I was starting out this morning, maybe after 100 more days like today, Ill be totally at ease on loose gravel, and not get that panic heart stopping " oh shit" lock the brakes and stand the bike straight up thing in those loose gravel turns after a long down hill.

im learning... I do appreciate all of you guys's advice too ( except for Ojay, his advice is terrible I mean BAD...), I listen and learn when we ride together ( as long as Ozarkrider isnt there, he is hateful and mean, and I think he hates puppies...)
