Just keep the thread to people interested in letting Logan borrow a 250.

Everyone has to come up with this tough guy, smart mouth reply and they all say the exact same thing. He's not asking you for your bike. He's asking for someone that will let him borrow a 250.

If you aren't that guy, then don't reply.

Wow didnt realize this was going to be such a big deal. All we were going to do is just tool around the parking lot at centenial park in friendswood. Before he goes to msf he wanted to at least know some basics like working the clutch and shifting and braking. A small dirt bike would also work well.

Jason thanks for the offer. I might just take you up on it. A 250 is about the biggest id like to use for him just because its light and not going to scare the out of him.

If its that big a deal just forget it. Im not in anyway suggesting that i was going to teach an equivalent msf course and send him on his way to buy a zx14.

Was just trying to give a friend a primer before heading out to msf

Take a look.

thing is that msf is designed for teaching all that. you shouldn't have a need for a class to be prepared for class...wouldn't hurt but just saying.

Probably be better off asking for a little dirt bike and let him practice in the dirt or grass. I have a friend that has one and he might not mind letting him use it and long as we get to post up in lawn chairs with a cold beer. Seeing people learn to use the clutch the first time is entertaining. If he says yes I will shoot you a pm.
