    I couldn't agree more Jim

    I, too, suffered from those "afflictions" - especially after being out of the saddle for 20+ years. Six months after I bought the RT, Walt Fulton persuaded me to take his course and 20 years of bad habits almost vanished in an afternoon.
    I practice the Streetmasters skills every time I throw a leg over the bike and I am getting better and better, 23K miles later.

    He stated that, if he could find the right facility somewhere on the right side of the U.S., he would bring a Streetmasters class out there.
    Keep your fingers crossed that, someday, it could become a reality.....

    For more info on the Streetmasters Motorcycle Workshops, I have posted the class schedules for 2012 in the "Member Opportunities" section of this forum.

    Not sure what your course requirements and financial outlay is, but consider the Road America facility in Elkhart Lake, WI ( http://www.roadamerica.com/School/Motorcycle.asp I instruct MSF courses there (BRC, BRC2, Scooter BRC) and we've hosted Pridmore in the past.

    Might be worth looking into - if you need a contact person, PM me and I'll provide details.

    Streetmasters

    I'm in my 50th year of riding and without recording them I'd say somewhere approaching 500k miles. I have taken several MSF courses; priviledged to ride with the late Lawrence Grodsky of Stayin' Safe along Coast Hwy 1 in California.

    And, I have taken 2 of these Streetmasters classes plus spent a day-long ride with Walt Fulton. I highly recommend this course for those who want to freshen up their riding skills and safety knowledge. Very practical, hands-on, lots of miles, good instruction AND when you ride home it will be a different ride!

    I strongly recommend such a class for the experienced rider and I try to complete one every couple of years.

    Possible location outside Washington DC

    Another possible location is Bill Scott Raceway, located near Winchester, VA (about 75 miles west of Washington DC).

    I am not affiliated with them in any way, but have taken a couple of automobile driving courses at this location.

    The website is:
