Wahoo!, I introduced myself some months back. I've been riding since the end of April on my '05 and loving it. Just had a new high in that I completed the MSC course, 2 days of 5 hours each riding in 80+ heat and humidity, but loved every minute of it - but that darned double U-turn 'S' in the box in the examination at the end. :-|I've got my full MC endorsement now and it feels great. I will definitely be taking the advanced MC courses every year for some time. It was a fun, informative experience and the instructors we had were outstanding. I'd like to give everyone on this site a thanks for all the mechanical advice and warm welcome.
