I just checked it out for the first time...............INTENSE!!!!!!

Simple reality about what we love to do, these are the risks. Hedge against them with gear. But the greatest protection is not being an idiot on the road.

I wish all cagers had to take the MSF course. Just that little bit would open alot of their eyes. That is one reason that my 17 yr old daughter took the class. She is very aware of motorcycles and works on making her friends more aware.

I took my msf course at san jac central too... Rick really helped me out and I had fun personally... Have only been riding a week and have had 3 close calls so far (car backing out of driveway, car turning at 4 way stop while I was supposed to be going, truck speeding around a car parked on side of road and forced me into a nearby driveway)... I am sure that course is going to delay my having an up close meeting with the concrete, and I appreciate that.

Edit: The movies were pretty goofy, but they didn't look old...

I don't get close calls often actually. When I'm in neighborhoos or areas heavily populated with cages, I ride super paranoid and aware. Every intersection (including driveways *learned at MSF), I slow down, cover my breaks and approach with extreme caution, and I look left and right and forward non-stop until I pass the intersection.

Maybe my close calls are just minor obstacles to someone more experienced, all these events were in my neighborhood... they all freaked me out at the time though. Also I very rarely see motorcycles around here so it could be problems with my inexperience or anyone around here not being used to it. I'm not going to try to push the blame on anyone else (except maybe the speeding truck), was just stating that I thank the MSF course for avoiding them.

Admittedly after the first half a day of videos I was still pretty sure this had been a waste of time; but once the ridding began my whole perspective changed. I learned a lot and would highly recommend the course to anyone I wish I had taken it before I had started ridding it would have made for a lot smother process.
I know I'm late to the discussion, but this post here is a GREAT post regarding the value of the MSF BRC. Kudos to you.

sorry if I hijack, but on one of the pics it noted that the rider was wearing jeans? I always wear jeans and usually see most other riders wearing jeans. What are the alternatives to this? Other than leathers of course...

That KNEE looked pretty bad

Cars will pull out in front of you, cars will try to change lanes into you, the weather and road hazards will try and make you lose traction. These things are inevitable, but with the some of the training offered in the MSF course, a rider will be better equipped to deal with these situations.

i agree.... bmw made a turn without a signal and i had to straighten up and hit the brakes. if i didnt take msf i wouldnt have known to straighten up and would have been leaning while pressin the brakes = fall
