It was Whoopie. It was my first TD so I don't have much to compare, but I thought Whoop operated straight up in a very professional manner. The instructors were great and very friendly to this noob. In fact, when I showed up, I had to give my CC info again, even though I thought I had paid online already. I was told that Whoop wouldn't have charged people's CC if they didn't show up. I would not have expected that - on a bright sunny day. But I sure can respect Whoop for that gesture.

For comparison, I had signed up to ride at TWS (Texas World Speedway) back in Feb, but it rained all weekend, so I wasn't about to ride my first TD slip sliding around. Well it wasn't called off, and even if it was, I'd have to be present to receive a refund. So I voluntarily forfeited. No problem. I can respect their clearly and explicitly stated policy, as well.

However, the differences are duly noted.

I'm back on the bike as of today. Things I had missed about the bike:
Throttle response
Quick shirts
Not needing to slow for bumps that put the Subaru on its bump stops
Close ratio gearbox
Small size
Not mushy brakes

I think I'm gonna really miss the Subaru tomorrow, though...

2330, it's somewhat...rough, wind wise. Strong enough buffeting that I had to tuck in a bit.

Hope this wind mellows a bit before the water stsarts coming down...add soft ground with this, and tree are gonna fall over like dominoes.
