i totally agree with javier and eric, start on a lighter bike. i kind of fu#*@! it up by starting with a gs1200 at 550#, then to the 640A at 450#, then xr4 at 300#, and finally the lightest bike in the stable, the tw200..... dumbed ass backwards.......

last year, we had tahoeacr gave us riding lessons, unfortunately not too many were interested, just 5 of us. it was only half a day but would really like to have him or someone else do another one this year.

if it's not too hot by end of may, we can go to the desert and do some basic drills.

for those who wants to do more trail riding, don't forget , tt is having a ridiing school in the piutes.

Let's do it again. I think a school in Bean Canyon would be good. Lots of varied terrain and stuff for every level. I have a selfish interest in this cause I want everyone to survive the Tahoe Assault.

I'll see if she is game.
I'm on the Husaberg now. It don't like whoops and wants to stay in the single track. It proved this to me 2 weeks ago when I went to the Odessa 100 in Washington. The little Husy saw all those whoops/rocks and failed to start.
