Well the trip odometer just reset itself after my first 1,000 miles. So far so good... The parents still are not all for it but theyre home and im at school and thats ok by me. My first 1,000 have been for the most part incident free and highly educational. I hate driving my car now, I ride my bike everywhere I physically can. I've found a new release for the stresses of daily life (aka inbetween class trips to some of my favorite riding spots) and met alot of new people. I somewhat regretfully put these first thousand under my belt without the guidance of MSF, but like i said, thats somewhat regretful. I learned a hell of alot about riding by talking to people like you who have ridden and do ride. I will one day get around to taking it, but until then Ill keep my ears, eyes, and mind open to everything that comes at me. I have always felt that experiance is the best teacher and riding has just reaffirmed that with me. I am by no means ready for a 929 or R1 now, im still new and it can be argued that my F3 is still too big for me, but so far shes done me well, very well. So, until the next 1,000 miles, shiny side up:thumb: Thanks all.
