I would have to agree with your assessment of the use of "rig". And it is my wife's car, I can't be bothered to drive an SUV every day. Women love X5s

Then I gave her a challenge of backing across the lot and threading the needle between two signposts that were about 15' apart. I timed her first attempt, it was about 1'30". I said, do it under 60 seconds and we'll go for ice cream.

She did it in 36.

You gotta know what motivates your students.

This seems fitting with the trend towards smaller tow vehicles.

Thanks JD. I'm still punch drunk with this boat. Everything I've wanted in a MC. Perfect boat. Drove from Michigan to Southern Texas to get her a few weeks ago. Well worth it. And the Heater worked great this last weekend.
