Re: MSF course

I'm signed up to take the advanced MSF course next Saturday and am curious if anyone has taken it and what I can expect?
I will be taking the course with six to ten other riders...as per my usual luck, they are all from the local Goldwing club...The Lilac City Wings. The gal that signed me found out 'later' that this was to be a closed class for the wingnutz but since she had my money and I was not willing to wait another two weeks, 'got me in.' I'm guessing I'm gonna be Mr. Popular...oh well.
I have this video of a new Goldwing being wheelied and I was kinda thinking about burning some CDs of Goldwing stunnas to kind of break the ice...or stir the pot...whatever...anybody have any links for 'wing stunts? And again, any hints as to what I can expect next Saturday?

TIA

Re: MSF course

You'll have 1/2 a day in the classrom, then after lunch you'll go out to the parking lot for exercises. *They will look for overall control of the motorcycle, followed by exercises in braking, cornering and swerving.

Don't try to be anyone's hero (remember you'll be in a parking lot), although you'll probably do a stoppie or two during the braking exercises.

I'd suspect you'll really enjoy the GW crowd. *They're mostly really nice people. *They're interested (as I'm assuming you are) in improving their riding skills and abilities to avoid accidents.

Re: MSF course

Most Goldwing folks I know are really cool and excellent riders. The MSF is good for brushing up on street skills and strategies. I take one every few years as a refresher.

Re: MSF course

I was, in no way, implying that Wingnuts are bad people!
I merely said that this particular group is registered under their club and that I will be odd man out and on a sportbike no less...
*I was also serious that if anyone has any 'wing video clips or links, I'd like to burn a few CD's as it is in my nature to be a wiseass...
I'm looking forward to next Saturday and am thinking it is probably a good thing that I'll be in with a group of wingnuts instead of a bunch of smartass 'blade jockeys.

Re: MSF course

Remember to brake with all fingers, not just with 2. My instructors were a real PIA with that.

It's a good course. You'll probably practice exercises that will mimic accident avoidence as well. Good class. It's a long day but worth it.

And, maybe your insurance co will give you a discount for taking the class.
