Absolutely. I also think go carts and 4 wheelers as kids make people better drivers.

So you do not qualify because I prefaced this with ZERO experience. You have some experience, if only by osmosis.

Yeah I'm going to have to disagree also. Some people have a knack for this sort of thing, can take MSF, get some good practice in and be safe to ride around town commuting and what not.

I took my MSF in august, got my license and first 600cc in the same month and have had no incidents.

Granted, I've had the moped, Jr.50 experience as a child, even though those act nothing like a 600. Some people just have a better understanding of how these things work and how to control them better than others.

+1, MSF was the first time for me too, I did not know how to drive standard either. I started out on a Katana, then moved on to my gixxer.
