Standby

...a VERY good point you raise about standby. As long as you know the Course manager would accept you on that basis. In my course, there were one or two no-shows on the (Saturday) second day, after the (Friday) evening classroom part. I felt that the way my Course's classroom section was conducted could have been greatly improved. I speculate that the Saturday no-shows were discouraged by the flood of information. Too bad, if so, because the two days of learning to ride were taught by a splendid group of instructors. Absolutely top-notch.

I think everyone should. What wrong with being informed about your sport?

I havent taken it. I would really like to but it's only offered here like twice a year and both times, I was working. One day, I will take it though, regardless of how long i've been riding by then.

One thing that pisses me off about the course though is this.....A few months before I bought my first bike ( several years ago ) my roommate got a warrior 4-wheeler. He was given the option to take the 4-wheeler saftey course and if he passed, would recieve $75. Course costs were $0.

Yep, taking it on April 4-6th. Can't wait ! Decided it was the best way to learn... even though my grandfather and uncle both ride. I wanted the experience.. and the 10% discount on insurance, and the fact that I dont have to take the DMV test as well.

I am taking it this December. I am upset of the fact that last year the price was $120, and now it has jumped to $180!
If money permited I would have taken a year ago. Oh well, 2 years ago I thought I really did not need it since I've been around bikes the last 7 years. I think it would be awsome to attend this class.

Just graduated my msc today. It had to have been at least 90 degrees on that parking lot. I feel like I am about to have heat exhaustion from riding on that parking lot for two days. It was definately worth the time.
