10. Motorcycle Safety Class

102314-top-10-save-butt-10 MSF Class

Although there is some debate about the best way to teach people to ride motorcycles, all experienced riders are in agreement that rider training is of a primary importance. Riding a motorcycle is much too difficult to depend on the haphazard nature of trial-and-error. Since the potential costs of learning from our motorcycling mistakes is so high, proper training will set the novice rider loose on the street with enough knowledge to go about the challenging work of learning how to ride. So, while basic skills and survival strategies aren’t something you can see or hold, they’re great to have in your back pocket as you rack up the miles. Even if you’ve ridden for years, you can still learn valuable skills from a class. Contact the MSF or a local riding school.
