screw it...give them all bikes...let them ride whatever they want...it'd be like adding chlorine to the gene pool

(with my luck they'd kill me and they would be just fine. )

Yah it's kind of a joke that CA has arguably the best riding weather and roads and the rider training is Soooooo expensive ie NO help from the state (and plates/registration isn't anywhere close to free either). In Texas it ran 135 in the Dallas area so either it was a bargain or maybee partially subsidised [sp] by the state.

In Pa it's free. A small extra charge on the license endorsment is what funds it. The instructors are paid in the range of $15 per hour according to one of my friends who went to the instructor's school.

I think evryone that rides a bike should take the msf course, but I don't think it should be required by law. This isn't Iraq if they won't to die let them die.

I am a victim of a 250 restriction.
I think it sucks frankly. I know a few people who ride unlicensed purely because they WONT ride a 250. It creates a false economy, here for instance you pay more for a zxr250 than the equivilent zxr400 just because of the extra demand created by licensing.
Who says you wont die on a 250 anyway? Over here many newbies go for the quickest 250 2stroke they can find. Is an RGV250 or TZR250 a good idea for a learner in a corner when the powerband hits?

After driving 30 km in the year's first blizzard, I'm now convinced it's too easy to get any sort of driver's license in Canada.

One word (ok 2) : Fucking Morons.

I think that if they do anything they should just make the MSF course Manditory!

I'm not interested in limiting a person's rights to choose the motorcycle they want, but it might not be a bad idea. I do think the MSF course should be required.
