Here in New Brunswick, Canada, getting your motorcycle license now requires the rider take a certified course. I think the cheapest course is the official government one which is $515 total. It's 20 hours total, with 3 hours in class and 17 hours on a bike that they provide. I'm doing the course next weekend in order to get my license. For the first year you have a "beginner's" license, which means 0 BAC, can't ride after dark, no trailers, and no passengers.

In 1955 there was no such classes. I got my training free at the curbing front of the MC dealer. He pointed out the throttle and the shifter and the brake and said be careful as I drove away.

The part of me that wants to go riding tonight wishes it was 1955. The part of me that wants to still be riding when I'm old and grey is glad there's a safety course.

Have you taken any of the classes since? I bet if you went, they'd ask you if you were interested in teaching. Just throwing it out there, you'll learn something, too.
