I recommend this article by Will Clinging.
I got an email from longridersgear.com (love them!) a few weeks ago with this article published in it and I meant to link it here a while ago when I was struggling with Boomer. Somehow I didn't get it published, but it has really proved to be an interesting read after all Boomer and I have gone through. I feel like we are really coming out on top of this whole situation. I think that I still have some anxiety about riding Boomer, but I also feel that my confidence grows daily.
