no replys huh....i see how it is
Uh... listen to the instructor
Don't be that guy.
bring a helmet
dont drop the bike
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
wow thats some impressive riding for people who generally have never ridden before
nah....i prefer to do things on my own
Stoppies and wheelies impress the instructors, do lots of those....
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.
nah we gotta bring our own gloves
of the 6 people in my class i was the only one not to own a bike already. I was stalling while everybody eles was crusing around. It sucked.
that will be me, next summer though, i want to do it now, but knee surgery has me going the other direction
pay attention. they teach a lot of useful techniques.
yeah i wore those one day when i forgot mine and my hands were totally cramped up from riding. just not enough padding in them
For anyone whos taken the MSF, hows the 6 hours of riding? Does it get boring after awhile or did you have fun?
Well I had never ridden prior to taking the MSF course so it was a blast the whole way through.
Awesome, I'll be in the same position as you when I take the class in early August. Im excited but its supposed to be close to 100*!
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).
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.
So, any update, how was Day 1? I have a couple friends at work who started thier course today, lent my gloves to one of them. Well, one set of my gloves, anyways, weather is nice this weekend, I want to get out there and ride, too!
I was on my bike again, 10 days after my knee surgery, couldn't ride for long distances w/o a break but i could ride
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
