Heaven forbid someone give the OP a friendly reminder that he could be held legally and financially liable for anything that goes wrong while operating as an instructor.

Edit: just read the above post. Yes, I'd say it should be framed the same way as your buddy who wants to give you some pointers. It's a group of riders getting together to discuss and practice good and safe riding habits--not a class.

I gotta be honest when I saw the title I genuinely thought it was some type of official MSF thing or something, until I read the body...but some people aren't that smart...

I applaud these people for TRYING to help other riders, especially new ones. That is more than a lot of other riders can say. The $5 IS CHUMP change for anyone. i do see a lot of valid points about liability etc, so either pick and choose who you coach carefully or look into some form of legal protection.

Ive been riding for almost 22 years now, there is nothing more rewarding than helping other people be BETTER riders. well, other than blowing past your buddy

The way I see it collecting 5.00 makes them more liable. It is chump change and in my opinion its the aspect that would hold them liable in court.

It was a girl, I removed and installed a new motor and she is still on the road.... True story but off point I know.

But your above statement is so true in the eyes of a squid.

I also know the OP and know without a doubt he would watch and never push a true squid if one were to show up.

They're also not trying to instruct people how to operate moving vehicles, so...

Well, the "TRAINING" was last Sat. and I have heard nothing on here, fb or in person about anyone complaining about the "TRAINING".

Can we please move on, because Im hoping another something other than the word "TRAINING" class is given because I missed the last 2. Or I could just go to that "other than training" place and just ride the course myself for a bit one evening.

To "train" or "teach" any vehicle for road use needs to be certified by TXDOT. Yes there were many many ugly threads about this. I understand what you guys are trying to do. If someone becomes safer on the street for "hanging out" with you guys then great. Just don't make it anything official and don't call the $5 a fee. It does make you liable.
