I'm not much of a forums guy but here goes. Sorry if this has been posted before but I did not see anything in the search, and my forum etiquette probably sucks. I did read a few MSF coaches threads which makes me wanna do this, but I have specifics I want to ask here before I start e-mailing organizations. I am seriously considering becoming a riding coach in Arizona during the winter months. I actually live in Idaho but I spent last winter riding SoCal and Arizona and as it happened it was the coldest and rainiest winter anyone ever remembered having. My bad luck I guess, but not really because I could still ride. I can't ride in Idaho really at all in the winter. Even when the roads aren't icy or slushy they are full of sand and salt and de icer and everything. Its demotivating. Anyone know if Arizona will accept an out of state rider as a coach? The web site says: Be a licensed motorcyclist in the State of Arizona But sometimes an organization web site will state something as if its a rule when really its just a guideline, if that. Also, is it practical to do MSF seasonally, or during the winter months? For my side, it would be a great fit for me but maybe not so much for the organization. I would consider doing it for California, but California is very expensive to live in and the price of admission to become a coach is a lot of money ($500 initial cost plus addl courses). Lane splitting is awesome though, which makes me wanna consider it just for that. What say you? Anyone got a bone they can throw me?
