Been on motorized bikes since the age of 12. Cautious, sensible, and not acting like a fool with power keep me safe. Riding was encoded into my DNA.

Have I taken the MSF? No.

Would I take it? If it were free.

Should other people who are unlike myself? More than likely.

Also, my fiancée just recently took her MSF course. The one time I tried to teach her how to ride was on my Honda 50, and to be quite honest I didn't think there was any hope at all for her. During her course she never dropped the bike and only put her foot down once. I feel at ease a bit more as well as her

THANK YOU. GOD DANG!

If there is any doubt in your mind take the MSF.

Sure did. I know here in Nebraska, the cost for the class is fairly high (I think $250), but luckily since I work on base, my class was free. I wouldve eventually taken the class through the state when I had the money and time for it, but this way was just much easier.

^^ You're not bored of that VFR yet are ya?

-------------------------------

I took one and am glad I did.

I had never even sat on MC seat before so that course not only taught me life saving skills but how to actually operate a MC.

Took the msf course in MD to get licensed 7 or 8 years ago. Now that I'm PA resident and riding across the country next year, I plan on taking the advanced course to brush up on (and learn new) skills... as PA offers beginner and advanced classes for free to PA residents.

The discount on insurance means you are losing money by not taking it.

Masta, come to the lovely state of Michigan, and it's no -fault insurance. They don't give a DAMN if you have a MSF class under you or not.

Period.

I've had my endorsement 26 years, and started riding 7 years prior to that. they don't care.

No fault sucks.

LOL- this I know... I wish we would get insurance breaks for that, after riding all these years, I would STILL go take it, if it made a difference in premiums.
