Just out of curiosity, how does one “teach themself” if they don’t know WTF they’re doing to start with? The vast majority of motorcycle accidents/deaths in this country come from self taught riders. It’s unbelievably frustrating.
We see self taught people all the time in our classes who chose never to get a permit, got caught, and then decide to take the course to get legal. In word, generally….they suck at riding and are harder to teach because not only do we have to help them learn the proper way, we have to “undo” the bad stuff.
