So my thought is to start a thread that comes up quickly for us new riders. With gas where it is I'm guessing that there will be a few of us.
-plan area rides and all of that other good stuff.

on a whim

So, as a get-away, I decided to sign up for the Experienced Riders Course free of charge (well, ok, 20 bucks) through ISU this weekend. Really on a whim. It's now turning into a family trip where the wife and kids'll stay at the Super 8 or whatever to swim/have fun and Sat after the class we'll stop at the local children's museum. Just havin' fun.

Would FJR's be welcome? (New d/s comes next year, when I can afford it)

-so did anyone go?
-I wanted to but a nap seemed to take over my will power.


I learned "kinda" how to do a wheelie on my bike last night. The biggest thing was that i could not hold it for very long. .... i know its stupid , but c'mon its my first bike. Any thoughts
