so I took my MSF course at San Jac Central, Pasadena over the weekend.
I can't recommend them highly enough,
great team of instructors and Rick the head honcho is one of the funniest guys you could ever meet.
Learnt a lot about slow speed bike control and was pretty shocked at how many bad habbits I'd picked up over the years!!

Well did U pass? What was your score on the written part? What was your score on the driving part? Did the instructor ask U anything special after the class?, I figured you would be driving on the wrong side of the parking lot

it;s amazing how much somebody who's been riding a while can learn if they want to
and how some 20 somethin yr old w/ lees then 1 yr under his belt didn't learn a thing in class........

Dood, no matter how much you clean the brake pads, they are still brownish.

Licenced since 1981,
My dad taught me to ride and licences were far easier to come by back then!
The UK system is far far more expensive, currently approx $750 around my area as I recall!
The UK system or DAS as its called involves students actually getting out onto the highways in small groups with an instructor so they have some experience of street riding before the licence is awarded.
Only the CBT (Compulsory Basic Training), basicaly cone work, is restricted to an off street area.
