Thanks for the heads up. The Army is getting more risk-adverse every year and now requires training above BRC to ride on-post. I just signed up for the BRC-2 (Experienced Rider Course) in Troy on 5/11.

I'm starting a school this spring. It will be just the MSF/Ohio Motorcycle BRC, but I have been friends with Lee Parks for a long time and plan on having him out for his Total Control class once or twice a year. Total Control is a street class, but from what I understand it is very good.

I took the ERC a few years ago on my 1150 GS, maybe you should go with only 1/2 a tank of fuel. I didn't have any problems with the drills. It would seem fruitless to take the course on any thing other than your main mount.

BTW Check with your insurance company upon completion, some offer a very nice discount. You may save more than your enrollment cost.

Sounds like we will be in the same class. Not sure if I'll ride the Ulysses or the 690. Neither has a great turning radius, KTM will be lighter to pick up if I drop it.

I want her to be able to have a safety course available to her that she can take to get her license.

I just got done calling everyone on the committee. The staff at McGregor's office seems to be tired of getting these calls. Hmm, seems to me like they need more, keep at it!

This is the old skin from a couple years ago before they installed the custom one. I always like this better.

If you managed to get through,there's not enough call volume yet.

Just called all three, ad to leave messages for McGregor and Reece but told receptionist for the other three that as a long time motorcyclist and someone who has benefitted from a return rider class they are greatly needed. That allowing those funds used by the MSF classes was a disservice to motorcyclist and other motorists because of the decrease in public safety that would result.
