MSF QUESTIONS

Recently bought my first streetbike.... been riding and racing dirt since i was four and my top priority right now is to get my MSF license, after looking into it im thinking Awesome cycles is where ima do it due to they work around my work schedule better with the sunday-monday class.

Question is would it be okay to ride my bike to the actual place considering i dont officially have my M endorsement just yet??? Thanks!

We're not cops, we don't give a rat's . However, keep in mind that if you do get pulled over on the way, it is NOT a valid excuse for being late.

Also, if you do pull up without gear and a helmet strapped to the side of your bike, we WILL make fun of you.

Other than that, who cares?

Ride your bike if you choose, but I would use theirs for the class.

Awesome cycles is for a lack of a better term.. Awesome... I'd been riding for years and they kept showing me new stuff.. My g-f had never rode on a street machine and now is riding hers solo to work. With confidence that only they could have put in her. So now that I'm the poster child post.. lol..

But like stated above, don't go in like you know it all already and don't go in like a squid, and they are just there to help you get what you need... .. They are like drug pushers.. THEM!

See that? Make sure that helmet is strapped to the side

sounds like you've got some experience and probably arent going to drop your bike but that doesnt mean some noob isnt going to dump the clutch on the grid, run into you and scuff your bike up.

just food for thought.

Also know if there happens to be a police officer in your class they will point it out to him... speaking from having that scenario in my class... nothing happened because of it, but you will still get ragged on regardless...

I took the class there this past wknd and at least 4 guys drove there with their bike. One 19 yr old, one in his twenties, and 2 that are late 30's, early 40's from what I can remember.
NO ONE ragged on them but instead asked them for for advice. Just simple basic questions and their history of riding, thats all. They ALL had helmet/jacket/gloves, boots. Was it their personal choice? Who knows. But they NEEDED it to take the class.
