    Looks like You'll be in New Mexico soon. I'd be interesting in building more confidence with my big GSA. Do the classes cater to this bike or will it be more of a enduro type of course.

    Hey Jeff. I just recently returned from my first time with these fine folks except I visited the northern NM school (about 2 hrs north of you). See my short Ride Report which has a link to some pics and videos. You'll see that my Instructor was riding his 1100GS for one of those trips (and a Honda XR100R and a Suzuki DR-Z400 the other times since those were the bikes that I was riding so it made for great Instruction). I believe the tours and rides can be tailored to dirt-only or DS sections but definitely give them a shout. I'm looking to head back to NM soon so if you are interested then let them know and maybe I can meet you for one of their classes.
