Being a new bike owner/rider figured it would be the wisest thing to do was to take the course.
Gotta admit, they cram alot into a weekend and I learned alot, learned things I never even thought of and learned things I thought I wouldn't be able to do.
Made a 95 on the riding course (aced "da box" - hell yeah!) and 92 on the written test.
A long weekend but well worth the time and money spent.
