Crash Course: How To Safely Fall Off A Motorcycle
Thanks for all your input, passed today with 100% mark!! I took some advice from all the replies!~
After reading the posts last night I realized that I was too hooked on the “emergency” part and trying to stop in too short of a distance. I needed to focus on the procedure not the speed with which I did it. This made it less stressful for sure. The tip of grabbing clutch and brake simultaneously and counting one one-thousand as I smoothly pull on controls helped a lot as well.
Off to buy a bike tomorrow!!
I go to Bellevue quite often for traiing. Is the I-5 a bad place for a bike? I might take the car until my skills are a little better developed. The Cascades must be a great place to ride!
I live in Victoria, BC, Canada, so technically it is not an MSF course as I dont think they have that designation up here. But it looks like it is our equivalent, and very thorough.
It comprises of..
Day 1 4 hrs riding, 4 hrs classroom
Day 2 4 hrs riding
Day 3 4 hrs riding, 4 hrs classroom
Day 4 4 hrs riding and Skills Assessment
Day5 7 hrs Traffic
Day 6 7 hrs traffic
That should keep me busy, I had to take a week off work to do it. Of course I could have done weekends instead but I wanted to do it all at once instead of over the course of a month.
