MSF Course

Passed the MSF course a couple of weeks ago, now I have my "M" on my License. Also got an award for cone weaving. LOL I guess all the practicing in my parking lot payed off. Course was informative and a lot of fun. The HD dealership had 12 fairly new HD Street 500's for us to train and test on. Instructors were very good providing constructive criticism when I needed it. Biggest thing they hammered me on during training was turning my head. I have a tendency to use my eyes instead of turning my head. Once I actually started turning my head, the maneuvers became much easier. The "Box" figure eight was difficult on the test day, as we had very high wind gusts. But I got it.

Look out world.

Thanks. I try to do figure 8's and hard braking/swerves each time in my lot before I go out. Does't take another 5-10 minutes, and it's kind of fun.
