Congrats bud. I have tried to explain to people what the MSF course is like, and how it helps, but it is hard to explain without taking it. You described it pretty well. Teaches you just enough to keep you out of trouble while you are leaning, and teaches things that you COULD learn on your own.. but would more than likely pay for in pain while doing so
Glade you like the bike. You picked a good "middle ground" bike. Not too much power if your careful and respect it, but powerful enough to keep you from selling it for a while. Mine is down for maintenance.. I am pretty jealous
My Yamaha is a shaft drive, so it has a rear gear kind of like a car. I took the back wheel off to have the tire replaced, and put it all back together. Now it is making a noise similar to the rear drum brake dragging on a car, but the noise is coming from the side with the gears... not the brake. So shes down until I can get her over to the shop and have them put the wheel on correctly...
