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.
