Red face So after my first day at MSF...

I have realized:
1. My balance is that of a drunken hobo.
2. I make things harder than they need to be. (Thanks Mike!)
3. Riding in the cold is not fun when you can't feel your fingers and boogers is flowing out your nose like a waterfall.
4. I'm shorter than I thought I was. (Thanks again, Mike!)

However, the staff at Awesome Cycle rocks my socks! They love their jobs and seriously are looking after your best interest. They saw I was having some issues and stepped in right away giving me pointers and tips and coaching me to the side (Thanks David). I probably may or may not do well, but I don't care, I'm having fun, learning a lot and if need be, I'll take it again! On to day 2.

Woo hoo! I passed! Thanks everyone for the support. It got easier as I learned to relax and keep my eyes up. So I had to celebrate last nite, went to my favorite bar and here's one for you Dave:
So after my first day at MSF...

Awesome Cycles was so much fun and I had a blast. The staff there is awesome! Now time to get some practice.

Congrats on passing the course. Now go practice.

A few notes however:

A) My name is David, not Dave

B) Get that Steelers out of the photo (As a Dallas fan, I'm obligated to hate the Steelers)

C) Send the lime and salt back, I'm WAAAAYYYYYY past training wheels here

Seriously though, congrats and holler if you need anything.
