Last time in the dirt around '73; got the itch recently, read on the net, "if you're considering returning after a long absence...get back on a dirt bike and see if you still got the balance." Very good advice for baby boomers wanting to make a comeback.

Took a 175 Yamaha out for some 'snow cross' a couple of weeks ago. I had a blast and never dumped once. Balance and instinct still intact. Studied and got the 6L...booked a beginners course, and currently enjoying researching my next bike purchase.
