Nice man. I live in DC and keep wanting to take my Versys to Summit, but as you said time and money are both tight.
However if they have a class for under $300 that includes the gear I can get on that real quick!
p.s. If you're ever troubleshooting the Versys and need a shop to work in let me know. I have a pretty decent 'hobby' shop just north of Alexandria.

Been riding 8 or 9 years, and have owned 8 or 9 bikes; its an addiction I can't quit...
