While I can share some of Twisty's views on this...I still think it should be mandatory to get a MC endorsement. Too many squids getting on bikes with no knowledge on how to respect it and making my insurance rates increase!!!
Insurance break nothing!! I have completed a advance course, and a nationally known safety and defensive driving course thru work and they didn't even give me a thank you, let along a insurance break... :wtf:
Exactly what you both said is right on! Just sit back and think about how many guys we've heard of that go out...buy a liter sized bike, w/o ever riding a street bike b4, and wadding it up with in the first 3-6 months! It happens all the F'in time! That's another reason why our insurance is so high.
