    I think that after you take this class, we won't be able to get you off your bike. I'm tall like you but considerably more round. Our center of gravity is much different than the majority of people that ride. Not knowing what we are doing turns gravity against us and it's discouraging. Jimmy and Heather will show you how to turn your size into an advantage. Learning why what you're doing isn't working and being taught what does work is very empowering. Believe me, not falling so much and being able to ride faster and more deliberately makes riding much more fun.

    Looking at the Husky TE 630. No $ until Feb/Mar though.

    Then I'll need a trailer. Then one for the kids, etc...

    You could put a light bike like this on one of those hitch mounts. No trailer, just the horizontal tray that holds the bike. I got an Acura TL that could do that probably fine, or one of those light Harbor Freight trailers.

    Or just get Joel to take you! :clap

    She is bone stock, so I get to start adding farkles. 3.5" rox risers and an ATV high bend bar. More than likely new cables, probably motion pro. I have a skid plate to install then I need to look at upgrading the suspension. All the while waiting for a good exhaust to pop up and then open the air box and change jets in the carb. I have a 5th gear on order and I need to score a new NX 2nd gear.

    So much to do and so little money to do it with! :lol3

    yeah, but you have big toys in your driveway!

    bob, before the class, get rid of the stock bark busters and put a hefty aftermarket handguards.

    for all those taking the class: you want your bike or be able to keep it all in one piece till sunday evening. bring essential spare parts, otherwise, you will end up on the bleacher for the remaining days of the training. if you have a spare bike, bring it too.

    Now you are scaring me Joel. Do I need to bring my crutches also. :huh

    I don't see getting BBs on before I go, it is going to be tight to get the risers and new bar on before we head out.
