MSF ERC Class - Sign up today!

Hey guys I've been doing some poking around on ERC classes and availability and went ahead and signed up for a June 1st class. There's 57 open spots as of today!

I would reccomend a class like this to all Redline Superbike members (and non-members alike). Times come to mind where, for example, we pass a turn off and have to do a u-turn. Half the people do the u-turn and the other half do half a u-turn into a curb and then back the bike up. You can be the guy who does the full u-turn!!! Think about it.

The registration office is open 8am to 4:15pm M-F.

Count me in. For anyone on the fence about this class, do it. These classes are dirt cheap and you will definitely get something out of it.

I took this class at Washtenaw Comminity College a couple of years ago - it was very helpful. The confidence to do the U-turn thing was the best part... (Although it's still not one of my favorite manuvers...)

I am also IN... I learned a lot in my first riding class 10 years ago! Maybe this time I will not try to pull a wheely.

100 people viewed and 3 responses? Anyone else? So is riding about having fun and improving your skills so you stay safe on the street? That's it right? Or is it just about looking cool?

Come on fockers...make the call.

You know Bluto, it's really hard to do a figure 8 with a 10" stretched swingarm while blinding yourself with the chrome! Seriously people, this is something really worth doing and isn't as easy as some might think.

Also, this is one of the few times we're fortunate to be in Michigan because classes like these are drastically subsidized by the state and would cost a lot more elsewhere.

that's a long way to commit to something - i'd rather not say anything till i was sure, then say 'yes yes yes' and bail last minute, and i'm pretty sure that's what's happening (at least a bit...)

We're taking the experienced rider course down at Road Atlanta with Kevin Schwantz the week before. Do you think I need both?

Why not? I'm doing the Keith Code Superbike School 2 weeks before.

James you can wait. I just posted this up ahead of time because just about all the classes before this one are sold out already.
