    That was a great moment! The winner was Josh Farnsworth from Landenberg, PA. He's relatively new to GS'ing and went to BMW Performance Center for training.

    I took Jim Hyde's course last fall. For anyone on the fence about the $$$, I highly recommend it!

    dude, this almost made me cry, remembering the first time my son rode his PW50. I believe that throttle governor screw lasted all of about 5 minutes. Today, he's an A-class cross-country rider flogging an orange bike. :clap

    It took me back to my 1st. motorcycle, a Honda Z 50 A, you know you remember them, with the fold down handlebars so the could fit easily into ANYTHING! I think I still owned it until I was about 20 before I could finally part with it. I had WAY TOO MUCH FUN on that amazingly bulletproof little bike. I'd still break it out once in awhile when I was in my teens. Something like that just feels good, and it could still pull me around when I weighed about 160. That really took me back. THANKS. I hope he has as much fun as I had on mine!:D Just be sure he knows to use BOTH brakes, I still have a scar from THAT moment of stupidity.:rofl
