Been riding since '68 but not much dirt. Every time I go to a school, whether it be street (STAR) or flattrack (American Supercamp) or dirt (Dirtwise) two things happen. In this order, usually:
1. I embarrass the heck out of myself.
2. I learn a ton!
At 65 I've been embarrassed enough that it doesn't hurt so much anymore
and I've also found that learning new stuff is always cool!
Anyway, I'm looking forward to it!
The DR650 is one of my favorite bikes. With your #1 and #2 you will fit in perfect
I will most likely be one of your instructors for that weekend, looking forward to meeting you!
What are you doing in May? Wanna join a group of us and come out to the Overland Expo?
