thanks guys. good to see ya.
although we are still getting to know each other the 120 miles i did in the dirt was an eye opener. spent most of the day steering with my rear tire and just haulin' arse. the weight is the biggest thing, you gotta be prepared to deal with it at any moment. moving is better than not though. hell, i think the scariest part is simply getting on the bike and getting going. all that weight seems to want to tip at a moments notice, like it's constantly checking to make sure you are paying attention to it.
