He is a minor so he is required by law to take BRC for M endorsement. $144 is nothing compared to the knowledge those guys leave you with. Awesome Cycle was great. Great instructors, great selection of bikes, and I had lots of fun out there. BTW...they are $190 or so regularly (which is cheaper than alot of places)...tack on the MH discount and you won't find anything cheaper.

I'm not the OP. I just asked what the cheapest MSF class in town is, didn't intend to hijack the thread. Sorry.

Don't talk down to me like that, especially if you aren't going to read my posts.

I don't claim to be done learning, at all, hence the statement "I DO have more to learn. I am not an expert street rider, by any means." that can be found in my previous post, verbatim.

My point is that putting around on a Rebel in a parking lot isn't going to teach me anything I haven't learned from years of riding dirt/trails and the reading I've done to obtain a VERY thorough understanding of the RiderCourse handbook and most of the freely available resources found on this page of the MSF website.

Believe it or not, some riders CAN be above the level of instruction of the basic MSF course without physically attending it. The course isn't some holy prerequisite for safe riding.

It's a great course. It's saved many lives, undoubtedly. But don't be so self-righteous to think that your course or your instruction is worth the money for every single rider that hasn't taken it; it's just not true. For most? Yes. For all? No.

Once again, I'm no expert street rider, but the MSF basic course doesn't spit out expert street riders. It spits out riders who have been introduced to the fundamentals. I've had the fundamentals down for ten years. The other stuff, the strategy and psychology of riding amongst cages and on public roadways, I've learned through reading the same exact materials I'd be handed if I were to take the class and abundant dialogue with highly experienced riders.
