HI MY NAME IS MIKE. IHAVE A BURGIE 400. BEEN RIDING ABOUT 18 MONTHS. I AM 68 YEARS OLD AND LIVE IN HILTON HEAD SC. I HAD AN ACCIDENT 4 MONTHS AFTER I PURCHASED MY BIKE. DID SOME COSMETIC DAMAGE TO THE BIKE BUT I WAS JUST BRUISED. I DECIDED TO TAKE THE MC SAFETY COURSE, REALIZING I NEEDED SOME TRAINING, BEING A FIRST TIME RIDER. IT HAS HELPED A LOT. I RECCOMEND IT TO NEW RIDERS. I'VE BEEN HAVING A GREAT FUN EVER SINCE.THINKING OF GETTING THE 650 IN THE FUTURE.

Welcome to BurmanUSA! I too found the MSF Course to be a major refresher when I decided to get back into riding.

Welcome and best wishes, Lieutenant. I took the MSF course, getting started first-time-ever at a youngish 60. Rest of the class were twenty-somethings. One came into the break room asking why I was beginning such a thing at my age. "Not that you're old or anything" he added. Gotta love it.

I'm the angst guy, not the accordian guy....

Welcome Mike,

Glad to hear you were OK after the spill. The MSF course should be a requirement in my opinion. It makes one more aware of the issues and hazards in riding a two wheeled vehicle. It also teaches evasive maneuver techniques. Good for you for getting prepared and riding again.

Janine :)

Welcome back Mike. After taking a long break from riding, I took the MSF Basic Rider Course to refresh my skills. I'm also considering going back the end of this summer and taking the Advanced Rider Course. It's always a good idea to keep your skills honed.
