Re: I'm getting a motorcycle.

Well, I passed my MSF course! That was without a doubt one of the more challenging things I've done in a long, long time. I did well at things like wide turns and quick stops (I stopped 4 feet shorter than was necessary during the exam) but had trouble with some of the lower speed stuff like the figure 8 u-turns and tighter turns...all stuff I know I can practice once I get my own bike. It was really rewarding to be told I had passed (the best score is 0, failing is 21, I got an 11) after the 3-day experience. I know I'm not 100% ready for the road but that definitely laid a great foundation for learning. I'll probably get my license and just sit on it for a bit A. while I save/look for a bike and B. to get a better rate on insurance when I eventually get one.
