I don't know about mandatory, it's not mandatory for people to take car driving classes to get their license. There is already a very good insurance discount if you do take the MSF and compared to the DMV testing you are guaranteed to learn a ton!!!!!!!! I guess I don't like anything to be mandatory or forced upon me. It's kinda like the helmet law, I wouldn't be caught dead without a helmet and gear but I don't feel I need a law to tell me that.

don't know if it should be mandatory, but I would definitely recommend it for anyone, even if they are a seasoned biker....

I have seen many guys in SA going to get their first bike and they walk or ride out with a gorgeous 1000cc bike and turn up dead a week or two later due to the reason you have given.

I think it should be mandatory here in SA but it is to expensive here so they would have to do something about the prices.:banghead
