I'm so stoked. Aced the course, now I can go to DMV tomorrow , get my license and ride whenever I want. I waited 25 yrs for my wife to give permission, so this means more to me than most of you understand.

Congrats, I still remember that awesome day when I got my license and was able to go on my first ride. I still get that same feeling at the start of every ride. You'll see what I mean.

Congratulations.
Practice your maneuvers. Remember, everything out there, including yourself, given the opportunity, will kill you.

Congrats, man!! I understand entirely. It took my a little over 10 years to warm my lady up to it. I've been riding since 2006. Definitely keep practicing those maneuvers and especially the quick stops. I can't tell you how many times that training and all other subsequent training I've done has saved my hyde. cheers:Dcheers

You are doing it right so far. Practice everything they taught and then later, take an advance course of some kind. I took Reg Pridmore's CLASS when he brought it to Portland International Raceway. There were 3 or 4 levels and you can choose the one you are most comfortable with. I learned a ton of info and skills that day in the best venue I could think of. Money well spent.

The MSF course is a great way to start. I actually did my road test through the DMV as a backup, but passed. My wife beat me to the MSF fall course, so I had to catch up with her in the spring. All 3 sons have taken MSF course. Best thing I learned was to keep right foot on brake and put left foot down when stopping. Keeps your brake lights on and holds bike in place for hill starting.

So I went to DMV and got my license. Came home and hoped right on the bike for a ride. I was grinning ear to ear the whole way. There won't be another bike for awhile because I was informed today the wife booked a ten day Disney trip for the family. I guess she had to get something too.


Yours truly,

A BROKE MAN

Congrats on the bike, the license, the class. I took off 20 years from riding due to having little kids at home. Wife gave me a window of opportunity and I jumped right through it. On my third bike since that window.


Have fun and enjoy Disney. Remember its the happiest place on earth. I always have a blast there.

Congrats! Very wise decision to take the course. The principles you learn in the course can and will keep you alive and breathing if used properly and never stop learning. thumb up

I'm considering getting the "Ride like a pro" instruction video to brush my skills up as well. It's been quite a few years since taking the MSF course myself.

Contrary to popular belief Disney, while a wonderful experience, is NOT the happiest place on Earth. The Lottery Claims office is!:D Been there, Done that!!!!:D:D:D:D
