    if you get a 100 on the riding and writing test you get a bell to keep grimlins away, at least at the place i did my msf

    :werd: and gloves. The ones they had smelled and were all worn out. It seemed like they gave us gardening gloves. At least the place I took it did.

    Well I had never ridden prior to taking the MSF course so it was a blast the whole way through.

    I rode for 2 years before I took the MSF. Regardless, the riding portion of the class was a blast! One, it's just fun to ride. Two, it's cool riding a new/different bike. And three, you can be hard on the bike (do things that you probably wouldn't do to a bike that you owned). :naughty:

    and gloves

    :werd:

    those bikes are beat to hell and back, so abuse as you see fit


    just don't drop it during your riding test or it's an automatic fail

    we were told that you only fail that section on the road course that you dropped the bike. and you were allowed to completely bomb one section

    Yeah I got to ride a Suzuki 200 Dual Sport. I would have loved to ride some of the shadows that some guys were riding also but I used the Suzuki because of my height apparently.

    The double U- turn is only 8 points, all other excercises are 15. You aren't allowed more than 20.
    A dropped bike durning the road test = auto fail
