Crash Course: How To Safely Fall Off A Motorcycle
You will be fine. Both me and my wife passed and neither of us had any experience before we got there. I will say this tho, don’t expect to be a pro once you are done. There is a lot of learning and getting used to everything even after the class. Like was mentioned, once you pass you really are “parking lot” qualified. Take your time, ride within your abilities and you’ll do greatAugust 11, 2008 at 10:12 pm in reply to: Friend wants brand new GSXR for first bike and won’t listen to reason.

Definitely try to talk her into the MSF class. If the only experience she has on a bike is crashing it really couldn’t hurt. Try to explain to her that even the very basics of riding are drastically different from the Beamers she is used to. Maybe approach it from the point of view that she wouldn’t want to scratch her new bike.. or look like an ass in front of her “friends.”
Good luck. I have to say I admire you. I would have given up a long time ago.
I’ll look into the Pazzo levers. Also my rider coach was telling me today that we should call the bike shop. He said they should be able to adjust them or suggest an alternative.
As for the performance of the V Star, I wish I could say. We have been waiting till the end of the MSF course to take them out, so we haven’t ridden them yet .
On a good note, we passed the road test this afternoon so in about two weeks we should get our new licenses in the mail . Still got a lot of learning to do tho. I am well aware that there is a HUGE difference between a controlled course going 15mph and the street
Thanks again for the suggestions and comments.
