Yeah, pointing in the right direction, but talking through your face shield. You're right about exploring...now I know how to get to the state park entrance.

No he was telling me the good, and the bad. The instructor followed me for a lap. I need to relax my arms, and bend my elbows more.

It was a good experiance, just alot of traffic. We had a full class. Some people, was their first time after taking msf. Took my time, and learned the line, didn't want to pass and spook people out. There were a few crashes, and I didn't want to be that guy.

It was also great to have on site suspension pros, and tire vendors. After they set my bike up to my weight, it turned alot easier.

I am supposed to get a 50% discount because I paid full price by accident..The first time you should relax and learn the line. You can go as fast as you want, but if you go in too hot it's not going to be fun. It is very relaxing not having to worry about cop's or other cars though. You can just focous on the racing line and have fun.

I did miss your guys ride though.
