I will be attending all classroom instructions. I will be at all three tracks as long as I am needed to be there. Which I hope to be needed at all the events.

Long,
Some of the differences will be no compression braking and being able to brake later because of the size of the bike.
Another will be picking up the throttle again mod-corner, you'll have to be more conscious of where you are at in the powerband in order to get a good drive out of the corners.

Patrick, missed you Friday when I stopped by around lunch for a visit. I gave the extra goodies to a guy in the trailer and asked him to bring them baak to you. He said you'd be out there Sunday, but I didn't have time to come by. Sorry...
