Welcome to the group.

I've actually never seen that color before - it must be custom.

Is that a pink or fuscia?

And this airbrush fairies are amazing!

Welcome to the forum. Glad you took the time to stop in and say hello.
Now if you can post some pictures of that big thing n a garage you call a motorcycle ..

I'm glad your taking your safety class. Please do a write up on things learned after. It's been so long since I took ne I'm thinking I might sign up for one this year.

Welcome to the forum. What wrong with cul de sac riding? Makes you practise turns, short acceleration bursts ... A pic or two would be nice and as Krazy said a short resume of what you learned on the course would be great.

Ride safe and keep it shiny side up.

A few things added and more stuff to follow

Welcome! Not only is the MSF class great but in most states it will get you an insurance rate break so be sure to call your insurance agent after - and don't lose the card!

Gotta love the snow/sleet we are getting right now in ME, lol. Luckily here it is mostly sleet and not icing anything over...figures, Monday I was riding! Welcome! Hey, if you want a smaller bike to learn on, I have my 650 Classic in the shed, beautiful shape, I'd be glad to trade to help out a new rider
