I wouldn't mind taking her out on a few rides if she likes. Know some nice "twisty but not really twisty" roads out there that are good for ones who are uncomfy. I am ALWAYS up for helping someone who wants to ride. Just lemme know...

Oh yea... the ride was great guys, and X, really appreciate YankeeR6 setting it up :notworthy and Jim,:notworthy you did a great job leading. Thanks again! I have needed to get out and my new work schedule looks like its going to be great for this type of activity. 4 on and 4 off make for a few great days of riding. Thanks all and hopefully we will see you all soon enough... I wont make next it weekend if there is a ride but you all be safe!

Thanks for the offer. I'm sure when the baby gets a little older and can be left with a sitter for longer periods she will be giving you a call.

A trackday may do wonders for her and her confidence!

After upgrading to the VFR, I felt like having to start all over again. On the little Ninja, I did pretty good on group rides towards the end and was able to stay with the groups I was riding with (compared to falling behind). The VFR was a totally new feeling.

After a trackday, my rides on the VFR became a lot smoother and I am almost where I was on the Ninja in regards to confidence. I can definitely recommend the trackday. It is so worth it. I took mine with LSTD (Henry (SBK Bandito) and CarbonR1) and their instructors were awesome. It was worth paying the $50 bucks for the class. She'll love it.

Ride was Way Cool!

Funny thing though... Every time I went through severe twisties, I'd look back and all you guys were all right there!

I need to go to the track.

It was a blast, let's get together soon. Yankee leads next time and I'll bring up the rear.

I don't know about me leading, but I would like to be in the middle next time

Keep my number and whenever you want to ride let me know. Thanks again Jim for your leading:notworthy
