I passed the MSF. A great class. Would highly recommend to ALL. As a newbie, it was a great start for me. I have a few friends that were willing to "teach me" but I didn't want to learn bad habits so I opted for the class.
I just missed passing the test the first time and had to go back to retest. Due to weather and scheduling issues, I had to wait two weeks to retest. I just got my license this past weekend.
Now I am working on getting my bike straight. It has a turn signal issue and I found that I need a new fuel petcock. Then I get to deal with MVA.
