A quick post today. Sunday before last I attended a MSF Basic Rider Course 2 class. It's been two years since I took the first class, to get my motorcycle license, and I wanted a refresher. This class was a 5 hour track day that went over tight cornering, quick stops, swerving, riding over obstacles, etc, using our own bikes. I was considering signing up for the Advanced Techniques class but decided to refresh things first before biting off more then I could chew. I think I'll attend one of the advanced courses this spring.
It just so happened that Southern Arizona had a cold front move through on the exact day of the class. So it was a little chilly and wet when I arrived. They usually don't cancel these classes unless there's bad lightning in the area. I heard one of the instructors state, "People pay good money to take wet track training. You guys are getting the discount rate." I arrived third, and parked behind another Bonneville owner.
