Hope you keep riding and incorporate some skillls practicing. If you haven't done a class like Jimmy Lewis or something similar then that would be a good recommendation. You'll learn some drills that you want to keep to take some time to keep practicing. If Russ gives a class before the BCBATR later this year, then that would be worthwhile.
The GPR mentioned is a steering stabilizer. They do help.
Get better and hopefully will see you back on the trails at some point - maybe BCBATR, maybe back in Death Valley next spring....
Thanks GGS. I plan on doing both the BCBATR and the Death Valley ride. I did take Russ's course last year and it helped me immeasurably - I plan on taking it again this year if he offers it. I'd also like to try to incorporate Jimmy's course with my trip to the nOOb rally next year. I need all the help I can get!
