Chaiya’s list is pretty much the required set list. Make sure the gloves are closed fingered.
The only thing I can think of for the difference between the Public courses and the Roder’s edge is that with the HD course…. some , maybe not all but some offer free rental of their products. A plus for you even if you don’t plan on dropping the green on one of theirs but it gives you a chance to ride a bike in the real world. Also if they offer both the Buell and Cruiser rentals like Ray Price did it will let you get an opportunity to try two different riding positions to see what suits you, which may surprise you or may not.
Security… well you have disc locks to keep the bike from moving. You can add Lo-jack to the bike incase all your preparing doesn’t work out and you improve your chances to get it back. For mine, being that its fuel injected I disable the fuel system, lock the handle bars and run a chain through the wheel and frame. The chain is for more extended period away from the bike and out of view. Remember…. if its inconvenient for you …imagine what it is for a would be thief whos “craft” is dependant on speed and stealth.
