Sounds like we will be in the same class. Not sure if I'll ride the Ulysses or the 690. Neither has a great turning radius, KTM will be lighter to pick up if I drop it.

I want her to be able to have a safety course available to her that she can take to get her license.

I just got done calling everyone on the committee. The staff at McGregor's office seems to be tired of getting these calls. Hmm, seems to me like they need more, keep at it!

This is the old skin from a couple years ago before they installed the custom one. I always like this better.

Just called all three, ad to leave messages for McGregor and Reece but told receptionist for the other three that as a long time motorcyclist and someone who has benefitted from a return rider class they are greatly needed. That allowing those funds used by the MSF classes was a disservice to motorcyclist and other motorists because of the decrease in public safety that would result.

I agree with d mc gee, Steve...none of the drills are so arduous that they cant be done with a big bike. I did this course on the Magna, which is 600 lbs (of awesome! ) and is not particularly good at turning...never dropped it once. In my class, there was a guy on a Harley bagger that was dragging hard parts on one of the cornering drills. You'll be fine on the GSA. And I'd think that the skills/drills transfer more readily from the big bike to the small, rather than vice versa.

Cool. I'm looking forward to it....specially if you'll be able to offer an ADV/buddy discount
