    I was the first fall of the class day and had 3 others later. Dorito was my buddy lifter on the last one. Toad's fall was spectacular.

    Class is very good although very tiring at the end of the day. Fortunately for me Dorito and Blaster have been me providing taxi service.:D
    the BMW facility is about 6 miles from the hotel.

    Another fabulous day today!! Marty (Lakota), Dana (Dorito), and myself decided to take advantage of the full ride day tomorrow so that will make a third day of riding with real roads, with both asphalt and gravel. Pictures will follow later tonight after dinner.

    Thanks to everyone who participated and a big thanks to the instructors I really had a great time, oh and I am still smiling :D.

    It will probably be a few days before I get the video posted since it is Alan's camera and I don't have the software for editing...files are LARGE. Honestly it would take a little getting used to after 2 days of putting the big bike through the paces. I think we all have new respect for what the big bikes are truly capable of doing.

    Have fun on the ride tomorrow. I wish I could make it. Although, I'm kinda glad I can't cause I am just beat.

    The really, really good thing about living on a pennisula is lack of hills. Even after expert instruction, a demonstration, this is SMIB-style hill attack (Lakota on Right, Joints4Sale on Left)

    It's a video, so click on below.
