    You'd be much better off taking the MSF with the provided 250's...a lot easier to do the small figure 8's.

    Slip the clutch for smooth throtte control during low speed tight turning drills...

    (sarcasm on) Do a wheelie for the instructor, we LOVE that! (sarcasm off)

    If it's the same course...

    I had no problem with it in '86 aboard my new GSX-R750. Even managed to do the eight-in-a-box deal. But I thought they got rid of that?

    For slow manuevers, 2nd gear & slipping the clutch works for me. Also, for slow speed braking, I prefer to use the rear brake.

    The figure 8 box is still a part of the course as far as I know. The guy I had called it the u-turn box but its still the same exact thing.

    I didn't know they opened one in newport, damnit... doesn't matter anyway since I still haven't picked up a bike yet.

    I don't really quite understand though - this doesn't make sense. MSF is required in RI to get your license. So basically, you have to illegally ride your bike down to the navy base to become legally certified to ride your motorcycle, which you still won't be even upon leaving since you need to turn the cert. into a permit at the dmv? And they facilitate this? What is the hit for riding without an endorsement? The same as driving without a license?

    I've been fuming mad at CCRI. I signed up last year, went to two courses then missed one. They dropped me out of the program (it was september) and I couldn't finish. I had to repay the upped fee this year, which is sixty bucks. And now I've finally been rescheduled for the 10th and will end on the 24th. It's taken me A YEAR to get my motorcycle endorsement.

    I realize the MSF is great, but I'd really love to have the
    option to take it, or a more organized and quicker way of taking it than the crap I've been through.

    I took the course at CCRI back in the spring of 1996, $20 and it was a 1 day deal

    The instructor was a hardcore harley rider and the 2 topics he kept drilling into our heads that day was to fight for your rights to not wear a helmet and also not have to use your headlight I shit you not, that's what this clown talked about... all day.

    I signed up for the advanced class yet I had NEVER been on anything with 2 wheels and a motor up until that day. I rode a buddies CR250 mx bike the morning of my class I passed the test the first time, never dropped the bike but I did run over a bunch of cones
    As the tough harley clown handed me my card, he looked me in the eye and told me I was going to die before the summer was over

    When I took the advanced MSF course I used my gsxr. Everyone gave me looks when I pulled up on the only street bike. One guy dropped his brand new v-rod. Another guy locked up the front of his harley and dropped his bike too. Meanwhile I passed with the highest grade in the class.

    The navy course just started a few weeks ago, they have only had one class go through sence it started, you are "supposed" to trailor your bike to the course and then back to your house each day, yeah I know it's stupid but it's free and only two days haha they have the class 2 times a month and they have an Expert Rider Course once or twice a month too so that's cool...
