As you have probably noticed, there are many new riders due to popularity of riding motorcycles here in So Cal. Many of the msf courses are completely filled for the next couple of months.
As for myself, I took my course at Saddleback College in July ’08. It was a great course with a great schedule of teaching. Weekend only, classroom in the morning and ride in the afternoon or vice-versa. Most of the other places have you do classroom one night during weekday and the 2 days of riding on the weekend. The teachers at the saddleback course were very good. Here is the link to there course:
FYI, one of my friends took his course at Orange Coast College and another in Anaheim somewhere near the 91 freeway and kramer/glassel exit.
If you need any other info let me know.
