Congrats on the bike and the class.
I took the course to get my license, because I did not yet have a motorcycle.
I signed up two months in advance, had it on my calendar, and could not wait could not wait could not wait.
Its a great course, I learned far more than I expected, and it has saved my butt many times over, using the skills I learned to avoid and get out of serious danger.
And you have an excellent MC there. I have a 2005 vstar 650 Classic, which is pretty much the same bike.
and yes, there are many women riders here on the forum (but not me).
