HERE is the link for your area course.

Good luck.
Thanks, I've already looked into it.

I'm just waiting until it's closer to time for me to get my motorcycle, because I don't want to take it now, wait two years, then get one, because by then I'll have forgotten everything haha.

I didn't even know there was such a thing back in 87. I made my wife take the MSF class before allowing her on the street. I also took the advance class just for shitts and giggles to find I always have something new to learn.

I just love to ride. I doesn't matter what kind of bike it is.

I havnt taken a course. But I will as soon I get my license, and money for the course. From everyone I have talked to, they say its a must for beginners.

Use the class to help with getting the license. I think some states wave the hole test while others only wave part, with completion of MSF class. In N.C. You have to take the written test and skip the driving test with MSF card.

With FL, once you complete the course they give you a card which you take to the DMV, pay an endorsement fee(like 5-10 bucks) and you get it on your license.

I am in Canada, not sure how it works, but I think I need to write my beginners first, then I can do the course. If I do the course I dont have to do a riding test for my M2. We have a weird system with three levels, at least for cars, I am guessing its similar with bikes. For cars we start with out G1, which means no highways and driving with our parents, G2 can do everything but drink and drive, thats a driving test with the ministry ot transportation, and then the G test. Not sure what restrictions are on the motorcycle one, but I know there is M1, M2, and full M.

I did take a 2 day MSF class and passed the test with flying colors. I had to take the class to learn to ride since I had only been on a bike as a passenger and never thr ridr so I had no idea what to do.

Since then I have taken 2 advanced MSF classes too and enjoy them just as much since I get to use my own bike.

Never ride faster then your Angel can fly!!
