lol when I took the MSF some girl was power walking and somehow managed to rip the throttle back and it went out from under her. You could see the look on our instructors face of 'please just give up and leave'. She was accident prone the entire duration of the course.

Anyways congratz on taking the course. Nice to see you are actually doing the smart thing instead of being a 'real man' and just buying a busa.

The price did suck, plus I had to drive an hour each way, but I learned SO much so it was very much worth it.

wow in illinois and when I took it like 4 years ago it was free. (It was $35 up front and at the end you could have it back, or "donate it" and get a T-shirt. I donated it)

But congrats it was a great corse for me, and yes watch out for them chicks!

Cool...maybe she will. My wife has actually surprised me with her riding...she's picked it up (no not the bike...lol) alot quicker than I expected.

This may sound funny but I think her riding bicycles on the street for so many years has actually helped her when dealing with traffic etc.

Despite a slightly rough start - the range day went well. Slight panic for me when they told me I take my feet off the ground. and I only blew past all of the people once out of control. Other than that - all was good

Thanks for the encouragement. Oh yes and MTP can't spell worth sh*t
