MSF is not required for your endorsement… atleast not here in NC. and at $200+ a course… it would probly be not a far leap of faith that 60-70% of the riders here do not have that luxury. Not to mention that usually there is more heed given when the warnings and examples comes from friends and accomplished riders rather then trainers who are getting paid to tell you what you need to know. Doesn’t make sense, I know….but thats just way it seems to work out.
And if it were common sense…. there would be no need to have the MSF anyways.
As a comedian once said…..
“If the people around us are setting the bar for “common sense” , WE are freaking geniuses”
