vicldyffemt, I grew up on mini-bikes, so I cut my teeth way back when they were building 35E (Minnesota folks should know this). I just started riding street bikes a couple weeks ago, after I took the Basic Rider Course.
A little late, but welcome to theVOG! I've been searching the forum as much as I can and have found a lot of helpful info...hopefully you do to.
Keep it safe and remember not to ride outside your comfort zone.
