Seems like no one has posted a Memorable Ride in a while so I thought I'd contribute something. Today, I headed out for a Photographic Expedition to capture pictures of the schools my oldest son has attended for use in a scrapbook my wife is putting together. At one part I had to go to the community college were my son had taken classes. I took the wrong entrance and the road I was on circled around to the back of the campus. As I traveled around I noticed that an MSF Class was being conducted and it appeared that the road was blocked off. DRATS! So, I had in my mind to just turn around and go in the other entrance, but something took a hold of me and before I knew it I was doing figure eight with pegs scraping. I did about 20 then moved up next to the fenced off area where the new riders were and then did a bunch more. They were at a break and standing around watching me so I figured I wasn't disrupting the class. I wanted to stop and chat with them to tell them they made one of the best decisions of their life by taking the class but I ended up just riding off. On the way out I remembering how difficult doing "The BOX" was. And now, it's just a skill I practice with ease to show off in front of new riders!

Glad to hear that you're having fun; which bike were you riding?

How is this fella doing?

Yes, indeed, The Box was the hardest part in the MSF class I took this past weekend (1st time rider at age 50). How many years of practice before I'm doing figure 8's without thinking?
