JUST KIDDING! Anyways... I didn't do as great as I wanted to... got 3 points on the riding portion. (Stupid figure 8)

100% on the written part.. but the written part is a joke.. so no bragging can come from that.

The only cool part is that on the last portion of the evaluation, they make you do the curve. Well when everyone was done, one of the instructors came up to me and said that he was highly impressed with how I took the turn and how fast I did it. He told me that about 3x, man did my chest swell up w/ pride..


The instructors were bad ass...


Tommorow, get my license and bike.. hooray for MSF!

Thanks guys.. don't worry.. I shall be pretty conservative the first couple of monthes. And gear is a must.. .even when the MSF instructors told us just to bring long sleeve shirts.. I still wore my ICON leather jacket.

HOLY CRAP did it get hot.. but that's b/c I'm standing/sitting stilll most of the time. But when riding everything should be fine.

When I did my last curve for the course, I forgot to put the kick stand up and scraped it all the way along the curve, but still passed.

Good job bro. When I took it, I had zero points up into the last test, the curve one you are talking about, I got 15 points on that one alone!!! hahaha yea pretty sad, I messed up in the beginning so I just rode through it and didn't care to try to finish correctly.

I tested on the Buell 500. The 250 is harder to control over the 600?... interesting.. hopefully it's the same for me b/c I found the buell pretty easy to learn on.

well the rr is definately more agile i felt the same way with m bike, the rebel does not like to move even though its a 250, its like a mini harley (literally). I think they weigh about the same also, its like driving a miata compared to an expedition.

Harder to control? That Rebel 250 will do the U-turn box in about half the radius of the 600RR with less effort - I wish I had had one for the MSF course.
