Jim, I am going to work hard this year at being smoother.

I felt a little hampered because I only have about 3,000 miles total on the VFR. I think you are correct in your assessment that it takes 50,000 miles to learn a new bike.

I have 24,000 on the LT and I feel much more comfortable on it, but still feel that I have a lot more to learn from it. Overall, I enjoyed the two days very much. I fully intend to come again next year, sometime in May, hopefully a better rider. 

Thanks again,
