you should have taken the course over at mancuso or something, they stick you on buells and let you play on their Harley's. they actually tried to sell us bikes while we were taking the class but stopped pressing me to get a fatboy after I failed their course:icon_bigg .

I took the course with someone that supports this forum.
I feel I took it in the correct place indeed, Mr. Ed is a top notch instructor

I finally said
"Look, I am going to have to ask you to cover your mouth when you cough!" (I am scooted all the way as far away from him as I could w/o sitting in the guy behind me lap.) "Look at me ! I cant move any further away !":
he was like
He apologized and didnt do it at all after that.
Even though I had the phlegm daddy trying to distract me, I still aced the written test, yup folks, thats a score of 100 to you and me .
The class was presented in a very professional and actually, interesting manner.
After lunch break, we got to rock the new 250's from Kawasaki, mine had .02 miles on the odo.
I had a blast doing all the manuevers and laps, was fun peg scraping the new bike.
Thanks ED for doing such a superior job
I recommend this class and most importantly, the personality of Ed to any noobie rider
Todays Instruction recieves a two thumbs up from the Scooter
that is all, there is always tomorrows lessons

can you please dress up as me and go to dps and get my M class for me... i cant pass the test!

I'd recommend the class as well. If anyone hasnt taken the basic course, and there's an opportunity get in one of Ed's classes - get after it.

Among other things, the class helps show you areas in your riding you need to work on - at least it did fer me.

...and maybe I won't run over any more dogs now :laughing6
