I took the class with her mainly to share the experience but hey, I can always use more parking lot practice too. The class was a pretty interesting group of characters that after the first day on the course were pretty humbled by the young lady riding the course. Gracie was pretty tickled at how easy the skills were and, if we're being honest, how much trouble some of the cocky guys were having. There were 3 pretty energetic dumps that hurt nothing but some egos and the nastiest of them was a sales guy from the dealership who tried to whiskey throttle his Harley Street 500 up a rock wall.

In the classroom we all had to construct an hypothetical accident scenario; draw it out; and explain it to the class. Grace and I did one on an intoxicated rider that after a number of other factors came to a bad end. The instructor asked "What was the first thing this rider did wrong?" Gracie replied, "He bought a Harley because they seem to be attracted to bars." Everyone thought that was pretty funny except for the Harley sales guy in the class.

After a trip to the Maryland MVA this week we'll be looking for an opportunity to get up in to Michaux and maybe back out to the Green Ridge SF to ride.

My daughter and I went over to the MVA today to get her endorsement on her license. On the way home I called my Allstate agent to officially add her to the policy and I'd told my daughter that she'd have to pay the difference for adding her. I put my agent on speaker phone and asked him to give her the bad news. "Gracie, your Dad owes you $12.50 a year because adding you resulted in a drop in the premium by that amount." There might have been a daughter fist pump. This just keeps getting better and better for her.

My agent informed me that because we'd both recently completed the MSF course for Maryland we were due the discount. We have 3 bikes on the policy now - my '16 1200GS, my WR250R, and her XT250. $242/yr for all-in coverage for the three bikes.
