Whatever. I learned to ride by taking the MSF course. I bought a 650 Suzuki Bandit as my first bike. I would come home after work and practice riding around the streets in the Oakland Hills in CA until I felt comfortable with controlling the bike. then I ventured out onto the highway, which scared the crap out of me the first time. But I just kept riding and practicing until everything became second nature. Within two weeks I was commuting into San Francisco from Oakland, and soon after that was comfortable enough to lane split. I was an adult when I learned and had plenty of common sense and a healthy dose of fear. I did not have parents that allowed me near motorcycles growing up so did not have the luxury of having ridden ten years before getting my MC endorsement. My point is not everyone has the luxury of being able to learn on a dirt bike and then move on but if you use restraint and common sense you can find a way that works. Good luck!!!!
