I just wanted to write a quick note to say again how much I feel my riding skills have improved since I took your class in May. I ride with a lot more confidence, I find myself shifting at the top of a hill without thinking about it.
I follow the vanishing point without thinking about it, I set up for corners and cresting a hill and just ride more smoothly since taking your class. At least several times each time I ride I’ll catch myself doing something I learned in your class or practiced more in your class and smile at how natural a part of my riding it has become. I’m thinking about more technical stuff when I ride but it takes less time to solve the what-if scenarios I’m constantly running, so I also have more time to enjoy the feelings and sights that were the reasons we all started riding for in the first place.
I know you get responses like this all the time from former students. I just wanted you to know there was one more rider out there who rides safer and with more confidence because he took your class. I used to peel off the state highways and other more main roads just to see where some smaller side road would go but now I have a name for all those “invisible roads.”
