Definately take the MSF course one more time - i think its discouted for re-take/refreshment course - but do it right next time by absorbing all the knowledge you can get, get comfortable and ASK QUESTIONS on things you do not understand.what is an apex? i hear it a lot at the msf course but never really understood what it is
Best advice ever on the subject of MSF. I will tell you that I have yet to run into anyone on the road that was in my MSF class, so even if you feel you may sound dumb to others in the class, you'll probably never see them again. Also it is for YOUR safety, so f'em.ASK QUESTIONS on things you do not understand.
try to keep your head as low as possible and move it towards the inside mirror(if you're turning left, towards the left mirror). You won't feel like you are tipping over as much. And keep your arms relaxed with your elbows bent, the more tense and rigid your arms are, the more you'll feel every little bump.
I always like to think of myself as becoming a part of the suspension when I get on the bike.
Or a guy in a full tuck at 30mph!:mfclaphe's new to riding.. if he follows the posted speed limit - racing position is not required.
stay at the most upright and comfortable position while riding is what you want to say. and losen up the grip, elbow and shoulders and well as your leg firmly planted on the tank.
he would look dumb! and i would seriously laugh at anyone making a slow turn from a signal light in race position.
