  • ARC MSF course

    Last weekend, the wife and I took the MSF advanced rider course. It was different than I expected, but it was worthwhile. I think it is something experienced riders might benefit from at the beginning of the year, especially if you're not a year round rider. For me, it just reinforced behavior I already knew. One thing I really got out of it was that there are some riders out there, some of them with years of experience, that are not very good riders at all. One of the riders in the group was downright scary to watch, and almost hit me during the courses we were running. I had to do an evasive maneuver to avoid him hitting me. I don't think he realizes what almost happened because of his laser focus on his front tire. Now, I'm looking into doing the Bike Bonding class with MSF.

    Glad to hear you enjoyed it. I coach the BRC and on occasion the BRC2 but have taken the ARC back when it was just the Military Sport Bike course as well as Lee Parks Total Control clinic. Personally, I liked the ARC over the Lee Parks class but other people may feel differently about it. I think any class helps us as riders become more aware of what is happening and in the end, helps to keep us traveling down the road.
    I also would like to echo your statement as I've seen plenty of "experienced" riders come through the various classes that struggled. Usually it is because bad habits are hard to break.
