As a newbie with only 3 weeks and 400 miles under my belt is it to soon to take the ERC?

The feeling I got from the instructors when I took the Basic Rider Course is that I should get one season in of riding before taking the ERC. We have a couple of MSF instructors (or prior instructors) here on the forum and I'd like to hear their opinions on the subject.

Bob, I'd recommend you get a years riding experience under your belt and take the ERC next Spring. I'm sure most other MSF Instructors will agree with me.
The ERC exercises are similar but are a little more difficult than in the course for beginning riders. Give yourself some time to practice and perfect what you've already learned. And, since you'll be taking the course on your own bike, give yourself some time to get some miles on your bike and become really comfortable with it.
Taking the ERC (or even the beginners course) every Spring is a good way to tune-up your skills for the upcoming riding season.

Thanks Don. Makes sense. I'll do as you recommend.
