I just did the generic defensive driving course for a speeding ticket on a bike at defensivedriving.com

I did not know that you could get a different one than the one you do for a car.

What's the point of being a forum owner if it doesn't come with non--related perks from sponsors?

This is the only one I found but I'm not sure if the state will accept it.

I did mine with Ridesmart earlier this year on track, which almost sort of made it worth getting the ticket, but if you have to do it online check with these guys http://www.driver-improvement.com/on...le-courses.php just rememeber to check and see if they are on the approved list with the state.

I was told I couldn't take a regular defensive driving course. They said I had to take the riders safety course instead. Didn't know it was available online. I just took the 3 months probation and was done with it.

I take it there may have been no short discussion on whether it might have been safer to have your steed trailer-ed by the awards committee...

I didn't know that on the bike would bring such a harsh penalty. I guess there is a safe way to do it though
