yea, i don't understand how they pass these people. there are some people that simply don't belong on a bike and you watch them shaking your head. personally, I'd fail alot of people being that in VA you get you license if you pass the class. not saying that if you fall you should fail but people that get nervous and go way outside the cones on turns and stuff simply need more practice cuz if that was a real road they'd be turning into oncoming traffic.SPR SLO said:I kept turning up the idle up on my Honda Nighthawk 250 and it made everything a lot easier. Something was wrong with my bike, though, b/c it kept dying every time I took off from a stop. There were 2 people that fell during the training part of the class, but neither fell during the test, so they both passed, but the instructor told them he strongly recommended they only ride in a parking lot for a WHILE.
On the Basic MSF couse they give you the bike, normally a 250 cc one, eventhough I heard some use up to 500. After I took mine Instructor told me that advenced MSF cource is vary similar to basic with the addition of a few more drills, but you have to use your own bike. MSF couse was a blast, test was pretty easy compared to DOL. Yes I took both. I learned to ride myself by reading books and stuff, and took DOL test and got license that way. DOL test was harder than I expected, there was 7 or 8 drills (tests) that you had to pass, MSF only gives you 4. Than was deployed for a year, and when back bought my 600RR and took MSF course to get some formal training. Great class, pretty easy test.
