OK day 3, second riding day, last day of class.
we practiced u-turns, to a figure 8. weaveing. emergency stopping and weaveing. they had us go down the path then they choosed stop or weave on there timing to simulate emergency situation. moved on to timed stopping (stop as fast as safely possible) moved on to switching lanes. mirror, blind spot blinker turn,turn cancel blinker. moved on to to practice road test then the acual test.
we had 2 addons that failed last week. Everyone in the class passed this time. a couple people though i dont know how they passed. one guy didnt come close to doing the figure 8. he wound up in like left field in hong kong some how with his feet down.... Also, he ran into me..while he was stopping.....
some others crossed the line but not by much. Next test was the emergency swirve(DMV requirment turn to the right). everyone did fine, some people went slow(you lose points for going too slow). Then a turn properly exicuted. proper starting speed, increase or steady throttle threw the turn, outside, inside, outside, then stop, downshift, left foot down first. last was emergency stop, speed up to 12-17mph begind to stop at the cones. the calculate your speed with how long it takes you to stop in the fastest safest distance. you loose points for "anticipating" the spot by slowing too soon, must keep a steady speed untill your front tire reaches the cone. Everyone did fine, some ppl lost points. biggest issue was the figure out, i really dont get the one guy but good for him, just hope he is safe out there... anyway, thats my MSF coarse review, hope it was usefull to someone. cant wait to get out and ride. So anxious to take out the wife for a ride (so she can return the favor
