I know some people who have taken the advanced class around here. Can't remember if they did highway riding though. And while they will teach this class to anyone with a license, a bike, and the fee, I think it may be more beneficial if you have more time in the saddle. The instructor for the basic class said that they don't recommend anyone taking the advanced class until they have at least a solid year of riding experience. Not sure if this was an official or unofficial recommendation though, but it makes a lot of sense to me.

I'm exactly where you are on this! Yea....I felt the same about....EVERYTHING. lol. I think they should have focused more on some "street" riding....but whatever....live and learn.

The more you ride, the more comfortable you'll get and the shaking will disappear, trust me! Keep going, you're doing great!
