    I've been to the last 4 years in Arizona and it's been fantastic! (I have to admit I am a little biased) But still, I can't wait to see what kind of crowd North Carolina brings...

    Has anyone taken any of their motorcycle classes?
    Just wondered if they were worth considering.
    I'm thinking about going to this to see what it's like.

    I teach at Overland Expo too (hopefully not under the classification emmodg was referring to) and they seem to change up the class line-up a bit every year.

    What kind of moto classes do you want to take?

    I have no idea what's available. I ride a V-Strom 650, but like to go places I shouldn't. I guess I mostly want to learn some handling techniques and ways to deal with rocks and obstacles. Also being in WV I haven't ridden in much sand, but I see it is prevalent in some areas I want to ride in, so would like to have some tips for that as well.

    I think I recognize that camper. Talked to you about it once while delivering a package to your house. Preston Village?
