Thanks guys. The class wasn't too hard, but definitely took work. The absolute hardest thing was to stop riding with my "bad" habits. You know, use 4 fingers on front brake. Use rear brake. You are going too fast, you are going too slow. Stop locking the front tire up!
I agree about more sportbike riders being instructors. Mine was a harley rider, he was awesome, but we have a different perspective on riding I think. One thing I don't like is we were taught not to try scare tactics about riding gear etc. Might scare them away from riding etc. Well, I think that would be great. I would rather scare away people who don't use proper gear. Better for all of us.
Kind of fun watching my first class ever. Had a couple people who couldn't even walk the bike in neutral. Eventually got the hang of it and finished the class.
Most of the people in the class are 30-40s. Feels weird teach people that much my senior, but......
