Took it three times starting in 97 with 2-year implements. Passed all three times (the second time with a perfect score). I took the class everytime I thought I was able to buy a motorcycle. Guess the third time was a charm, because that's when my wife bought me a Ninja for Father's Day last year.
Come to think of it, the SC driver's manuals/test preps they hand out? Whoever wrote the section on motorcycles didn't know squat. Probably hit something on account that he/she suggest you use the REAR brake for most (well as the book reads "Normal" stops). In fact I got two or three questions wrong on the DMV permit test because I answered according to what I was taught in the MSF class.
Anyways, there's been talk about restrictions on motorcyclists, well, moron's on motocycles due to some squid who wheelied, then wrecked his brand new R1. I think it should be mandatory to take the MSF class before getting a bike. Just recently in SC, you get your license after passing the MSF class. Besides, the MSF is taking a budget cut and they need support. I say cut out the DMV testing for Motocycle licenses and give the contract to the MSF.
Oh well... Monday, and work calls.
