People aren't going to like this, but I have said it to every newer rider I have ridden with.....

After you take the MSF course and after a few miles under your belt getting your bearings, I highly suggest you find a nice piece of straight full sightline road and go REAL FAST a few times.

My logic, after you have gone fast like that, 45mph doesn't seem so fast and you are more relaxed at normal street and city speeds. You realize how much time you have to react is VASTLY different between 45 and 100, and you are a better rider for it.

If you crash from doing this, meh you probably weren't meant to be riding anyway....
