Day 1 of the MSF course was today and it was a lot of fun. Because of the size of our class, we had to break up into groups and my half did their riding in the morning hours today but tomorrow we’ll be riding in the heat of the afternoon.
They had mostly Suzukis and some Kawasakis and Hondas. I chose a black Kawasaki Eliminator with a dent and scratch on the left side of the tank and a missing left rear turn indicator light. Okay, maybe it wasn’t new or perfect but I thought maybe since there was already damage, I wouldn’t make it any worse.
I was actually a little nervous going into the class because it’s literally been 30 years since I rode a motorcycle and those few times were very brief. But almost the whole class were motorcycle virgins so I was definitely not alone in my fears, I’m sure. The instructors were really good and in no time, I was feeling fairly confident, or at least fairly competent. I came away wanting more, more, more.
It’s going to be hell sitting in class tomorrow since I really want to do more riding. My girlfriend asked me a little while ago when I wanted to get my motorcycle and without hesitation, I said Monday. Anyway, I can’t get it Monday but definitely the sooner the better.
