im glad as well. and i all for a tiered licensing system like europe has.

well, they certainly have the time to ride the bikes and drive the cars, just not enough time in their busy schedule to take twenty minutes at the dmv to get the endorsement. nice.

I'll admit, I rode for years without a M endorsement. but that was the good ol days when cops saw you had a CDL and figured you had it covered. I got my M several years ago cause just having a CDL wasn't getting by any longer. they were making us get a ride home if we were caught. Now, your gets towed and all kinds of crazy .

well, remember now, you HAVE to take msf to get a M now days. and that is totally a good thing, but.... there are those that will continue to ride dirty cause they won't spend the money.

true, but im just baffled why anyone would spend two days in a riding course but not the half hour at the dmv to get the endorsement. guess it takes away from posing time.

I can only speak from my personal experience (having completed only the classroom portion of the MSF course) but I found the course to be an utter waste of time and money. There was nothing discussed that I felt wasn't blatantly obvious.

Exactly why I refuse to ride with people that don't have the M endorsement. Even if they don't tow the bike, they start looking at everyone's stuff with a fine tooth comb trying to write tickets.

Not worth the hassle in my book.

Exactly. I'm not saying that it doesn't help anyone, but I think our society is basically obsessed with licensing in general. If you take a step back and look at the actual results, you would see that IN MOST CASES (not yelling, just emphasizing) licensing provides little more than a false sense of security.
