Talking My MSF Experience

Wow, this was the most tiring weekend I think I've had!!! I was lucky to get in the class due to the lottery system - there were 19 people trying to walk-in for 6 spots. Friday was fabulous - the material learned was great and we had pizza delivered to the "classroom," which was a trailer in the middle of the parking lot. Saturday was miserable - it was cold, windy and rainy and despite wearing 5 layers on top (including weatherproof jacket), I was still cold and had to run to the store on lunch to pick up a 6th shirt, pants to wear underneath my jeans, and a 2nd pair of gloves to wear under the leather ones I had on. FUN times. Today was much better - it was beautiful the entire day!

I am happy to say I am the proud recipient of the M status on my license and I could not be happier

It was an awesome experience and I will highly recommend it to anyone hasn't taken it. I am definitely looking forward to putting some of those skills to test on the roads and hopefully soon enough will be able to take my little 250 to bike night!!

Yeah, this older guy (60's-70's) went down on Saturday and then a younger guy went down during the evaluation on the 'quick stop'....and he was right in front of me so then i was afraid of dropping it.

Get used to your body hurting because it's going to keep hurting! As you develop your riding style and you get more comfortable in turns and lean the bike over farther you will have to use different muscles than you are now and you will be sore! I was so sore from yesterday and I almost didn't ride this morning but once I got on the bike all the soreness went away... til I got off an hour later and the soreness set in again.
