And finally, while researching a post for my other blog I came across a website for a swing dancing club in Des Moines (my home city). I read this post about the importance of practice, and realized how universal the advice in it really was. The Cliff Notes version is that practice doesn’t necessarily make perfect, but it does make permanence. So it’s important to practice things (i.e., new physical skills) correctly.

bee buzzRonda of Clovis, CA began her riding journey in December, 2006, when she learned to ride at age 55. She passed the MSF course in March, 2007 and had purchased this ’07 Honda Aero 750 just prior to taking the class. The bike “just felt right,” she reports. This photo shows Ronda on her first long trip after getting her license. She notes that California offers tremendous geographic diversity for riding adventures, including desert, mountains, valley and oceanside highways. Congratulations on your achievement and on the Honda purchase!
