Cool.
So if I get a tat, a rag, and a couple piercings, I wont be biking with dignity?

I'm too busy having fun to worry about biking with dignity, whatever that means. How much dignity can you have while laughing like a maniac along Hwy 6? Do I have to wear a purple robe? Will that confer dignity? Will the robe match my armchaps? Questions questions. How about matching purple boot stirrups and EZ-leaker? Are we dignified yet.

This is the first time I've seen the word dignity tied to motorcycling. Doesn't seem possible or desirable.

Hell if I had any dignity at all, I'd never have hung around a guy like Buzglyd. He's total corruption I tell ya.

Well I have tattoos and piercings and snot rag, does that count?

I conduct myself with a great deal of dignity anyway, I look down my nose at everyone and throw nickles out the car window for poor kids just like a durn Rockerfeller...

as the week-long class progressed, it became apparent that some of the new riders should have never, ever gone any further than that class. Needless to say, we all passed

That's insightful. I wonder what the percentage is for failure in the MSF classes overall...I expect you're right, they probably pass almost everyone. Especially since they changed the law in FL requiring the class to get a bike registered.

I had to attend the MSF Basic Rider Course in order to ride on base. Of the 14 riders attending, 4 failed, and 3 were asked to remain late for further evaluation (2 failed again). The instructors were very tough and fair on grading the final evaluation.

"3 were asked to remain late for further evaluation "

Those were the hot chicks in the class.

"(2 failed again)

So two of the hot chicks refused to put out?

Well I'll be darned. I wonder if the mil-spec instructors are an upgrade from the civilian version?
