I took it on my dr350se which is a bit taller than my f650. I got alot out of it. It's all basics of course but nothing wrong with slowing stuff down and just getting back to basics. We unfortunantely didn't get to actually do the k turns due to the down poor of rain when it came to that time but the other stuff was good. I defiantly recomend the class. Was also neat to see 3 people who have been the operator on a motorcycle start from that to riding and changing gears.

Hello Gentlemen! Got back last night safe and sound from Norra Mex1K Rally thanks to all of you who bought stickers, offered support and well wishes. The quick down and dirty is emotional roller coaster. A fellow inmate was killed by a buggy on Day 2 another guy that was with our crew broke his collar bone and had to fly out of Loreta. All the guys in the group supported by Baja Bound helped each other make it to the finish be it with medical/recovery aids for dehydration to parts and just a helping hand. A young kid from CA that was riding a Baja Bound bike was the over all M/C champ and just a great kid, unless you were a rear tire then he was abusive to you. This is a link to part of a video that they showed at the end of the Rally at the awards dinner.

Ha Ha I will have to talk to my mother about this ha ha.

Also the insurance of the guy who hit me decided to take 100% fault on my totaled Versys the lucky part is I got to buy it back for $1600. Not bad since I can fix the damage with sometime and a hammer. So I think between getting the bike back and not getting hurt I won on this one.
