Default Got my VA license today!

It took the two day MSF course but I earned my class M license this afternoon!! The course was well worth it and even thought I have very solid experience in motocross, I learned several important aspects regarding street bikes and tips for safety.

The best part is I don't have to attempt the figure 8 maneuver with my CBR!!

Outstanding! Congrats! Yep, I'm a firm believer in the MSF courses as well.

Yeah, that Figure-8 is the king of points! ;-)

Thanks guys!

It surprised me how bad a couple of the riders were that passed. The VA test has deductions for mistakes and even guys who went significantly went outside the figure 8 box and did poorly on the panic stop still passed.

Having said that, it was fun to see a real cross section of riders (skill, types of bikes, walks of life, etc..) come together for 2 days and all pulling for one another and helping each other.
