    been a while since i bored you...

    ...with my mileage count but I'm at just over 6,000 miles now and am still going strong. I was able to do a couple of short trips and am planning one to Cincinnati for Oktoberfest in a couple of weeks. I am constantly learning and trying to improve my skills. Currently targeting turns and leaning, etc. it is coming along ok. I still continue to gather tons of info from the site and thank you all for it. Enough with the boring stuff. Later.

    I would LOVE to but I just can't swing it this year. I am planning on it for next year though and possibly The rain or shine event next year as well. Thanks

    Ride your own ride!

    You will gain much more confidence and skill riding your way, at your own pace, and not going all out, then you will pushing the limits too far. Believe me, I'm not against pushing limits, but it all takes time!
