    NH motorcycle safety course recommendations for SO

    Just purchased a scooter (150 cc) for my SO, which NH requires a motorcycle endorsement on her license after permit expires. Any recommendations for which rider training course provider to use? (We are in Seacoast area of NH.) Are there any that allow her to use a scooter for the course (she has no plans to ever ride a motorcycle)?

    Just planning for an early spring

    Thanks.

    Book asap. They fill up quick. If already filled, I think harley does them too.

    Plans to ride a motorcycle or not, just sign her up for the MSF course. Better to have "too much" training than not enough and there's PLENTY of overlap. Aside from a transmission and a little bit of a control placement difference, there's very little difference between a scooter and the motorcycles they use for the MSF.

    Most of the course is on street strategies and risk management anyway, which is helpful for literally anyway behind a set of bars or even a steering wheel.

    And yeah... sign up like, yesterday.

    I would say, take the course as if the intent is to ride a motorcycle someday. She may never buy one, but if you are riding together and you become incapacitated, she could potentially get you home.

    Same reason knowing how to drive stick is still an important skill.

    What's the difference between a bolt and a screw?
    First you screw, then you bolt.

    Thanks for the feedback. Will go ahead and book a MSF course in next couple of days, seems prudent.

    Last call, should I pick a random course offering, or is there one anyone highly recommends?
