what's MSF?



jk. i know some people that took it. seems good for someone that knows NOTHING about riding. but for someone that already knows how, i'd suggest a noob track day to learn brake, accel, and turning.

I read through 7 pages of this thread and I still don't get it. Unless when you say dirt bike, you're putting a cap on the cc.....to let's say 80cc. Once you get to 125cc and especially 250cc......I don't get why it would be any safer to learn on a dirt bike opposed to a street bike.

Before anyone tries to thrash me.....I'm not saying right or wrong. Just saying I don't get it.

Um.. Cuz dirt is softer to learn on?

And typically there are no cars.

Now I see where you are going with this. Then I would probably suggest practicing on a dirt bike in an open field......cause those trees are a lot harder than those cars.

MSF was my first experience riding a bike. That was a year and a half ago. Nearly 20k miles later I think I am doing pretty good.

Never once took MSF...that's how I roll...J/K! I just never did for some reason, only two crashes on the street over the span of about 8 years. First was trying to evade (not really, but I was trying to "make it to a friends house before he turned around kinda thing"), second was target fixation. No riding experience prior (that's worth mentioning) to getting my first bike. It probably would have been smart to go back and take it, but I never did.

Im not reading these five pages of bullshit, however...I do know that my msf WAS my first experience on a bike!

NEVER, did i ride dirt bikes, not even as a kid. Never, did i have any powered play toy. I had no clue how to drive a standard car. I had no clue where the throttle even was on a motorcycle before i took msf. Had no clue there was two frickin brakes for these bad boys! Didnt know gsxr was suzuki, cbr was honda, zx kawi, or that yzf was yami! Didnt know 600 vs 1k was talking about cc or engine size. Didnt know what a clutch did or how to use it! , and still ...for 8 months after i had my bike, I was in 6th gear on the streets by the time i was at 40mph

...either way, long story short... yes, i had an accident. But it was 100% rider error. You live, you learn! Everyone learns different! I wanted a motorcycle, and I tried to do it right by taking msf. And still till this day...I wouldnt change a thing!

Well if i could have had dirt bikes or something fun as a kid i would change that. but i would NOT have waited longer for the love of my life, just so i could do it the "right" way and play on dirt bikes first. Fk that! AND fk a 250!

I wanted my motorcycle, and NO ONE was gonna stand in my way!

Is this one of those "I am woman, hear me roar" kinda things? Haha jk

I never took msf, just learned from friends that aren't idiots
