2 - MSF class again just to ace it. Couldn't tolerate the fact that I wasn't perfect the first time.
3 - MSF class again, only the version where they allow you to use your own bike (Speed Triple)
4 - Advanced MSF class targeted towards emergency manouvers
5 - High Speed cornering class
6 - Low speed cornering class (this was the hardest and by far it was pure torture ... it's similar to the police officers course you can find on youtube ... more than a few people dropped their bike. I didn't).
All the above were done with my old bike (the Speed Triple) and every single one of them done within the last 12 months.
