There was a whole lot of pushing in my class before a single motor fired up.
That's my plan, just say I borrowed a helmet and gloves. I don't really see the point of wearing leathers, or even a jacket for that matter, to ride 10mph around a parking lot.

If you are reading this then this warning is for you. Every word you read of this useless fine print is another second off your life. Don't you have other things to do? Is your life so empty that you honestly can't think of a better way to spend these moments? Or are you so impressed with authority that you give respect and credence to all who claim it? Do you read everything you're supposed to read? Do you think everything you're supposed to think? Buy what you're told you should want? Get out of your apartment. Meet a member of the opposite sex. Stop the excessive shopping and masturbation. Quit your job. Start a fight. Prove you're alive. If you don't claim your humanity you will become a statistic. You have been warned...... Tyler

I don't know man. I think I'd rather lose some skin than be seen in a jean jacket.

Guess I should have said "--tough fabric jacket---". I just used the Jean name knowing it is tougher then one's skin. LOL

DONE with the MSC!

OK! I would have to agree that wearing your leathers would be a bad decision. A long sleeve shirt is really all you need for this class. Please ignore my spelling because I'm am going through a heat exhaustion phase right now from riding in a parking lot for 2 days. I actually learned alot. The main thing I learned was the counter balance on a slow turn. I am not sure if whoever reads this post will know exactly what I am talking about. But, I never really realized how low I could get my R6 down on a sharp corner at a very slow speed and counter balance my body on the bike to ride right through the corner. I am used to leaning into the direction of the turn no matter what speed I am going. Anyway, I would strongley suggest anybody new to motorcycles to take this class! Even after 25,000 miles worth of experience on my R6, I learned a lot. I am planning on taking the experienced rider's course soon. Well, take care all! I am going to relax for the remainder of the day and just surf the web!
