I haven't been, nor heard of the place. One thing I can say is, they are probably not as Awesome as Awesome cycles.

Awesome cycles is already pretty awesome, so I dont know how you can out-awesome something that is pretty much all awesome.

It seems most of the things these places teach should be common sense. The one I went to was off of Telephone and 610. I am guessing you got busted for no license?

I know you can ride so I am sure you are not going so they can teach you.
Do it. I am sure it is a lot better than riding dirty having to worrie about that stuff.

Yah got popped on the Harley for burning a stop sign a while back. Part of the plea bargain was to get my "M". It hasnt been an issue the past 10 years cause I have always been on a bike capable of duckin out but Harleys dont really have the giddy-up of a liter bike. But yah, MSF is cheaper than the 2 tickets I got so might as well get it done.

Awesome!

Make sure you stick around at the end of class, you will get some AWESOME coupons and discounts. The coupons/discounts can be used at a lot of good stores that can be found in our sponsors sector. These Awesome coupons include discounts to Motorcycles Unlimited and also 2wheel toyz. ( If still available, they were available to us when I took the class back in May)

* If you make a perfect score on 1 out of 2 Tests that you must complete, you get a gremlin bell.

That little bell is more than decoration, it serves a very important purpose it wards off gremlins, also known as evil road spirits.

I think the boss hoss course uses regular bikes, and includes the entire MSF curriculum. There's just some extra info about the particulars of riding a boss hoss......like not revving the bike in neutral and whatnot.

Wonder why you cant rev it in neutral. Maybe cause it will torque over onto its side?

they didn't even mention Boss Hoss or any of the bikes in the show room when I took it there. Of course, I couldn't help but to stare at this huge trike with a chevy 350 that was on the other side of the glass from me while we were in the classroom portion.
