maybe this belongs in "just riding" but here goes. I noticed an ad in this month's MOA News for a rally of some sort in an area called "Back of the Dragon" in VA. Rte 16, I believe. Near the towns of Tazewell and Marion. Living here in Illinois most all of my life I've squared off a lot of rear tires.
I don't mean to pitch the get-together or any merchants in the area, but holy @#$%&!!! ...I can't wait to head down there for a ride.
And now here's my pitch, while I'm thinking of it: Obviously take a riding class. ANY riding class. But last summer I went thru the two day Total Rider Tech class, and it's changed my style, abilities, confidence, lean angle...all that sort of stuff like no other class or book I've run across...not that there have been that many. But anyway, I thought it was great. Largely because after 30 years of riding, I'm having a way lot more fun, even here in IL where most of the turns are 90 degrees.
PS. I believe roads like this are why Lincoln fought so hard to keep you guys with us.
