Hey guys, I just signed up for my MSF course in September. The classes at all the community colleges have been booked up since the beginning of the year. So I have to take it at the local Harley dealer. The bikes are Buell Blasts, and when I went on the Buell site they suggest getting a Firebolt XB9R as your first bike. Just thought that was funny, and you guys would get a kick out of it. As for me, I'm really excited about my class, and I am going to take my time finding the right bike. My friends that ride tell me that a lot of starter bikes start going up for sale once the riding season ends. And here in Detroit, thats in a couple months.

wow....320!!!

My MSF course cost 75 (tuition) + 15 (registration fee) = 90 bucks for everything.

But I hear ya about being excited about it. I signed up for my class back in may and the end of july was the first one I could get. I also recently found a nice deal on a 2002 Ninja ex250. $2k with 2400 miles and dropped over once in the garage. I'm pretty stoked about getting it and finally being able to use all this gear I've been buying all summer.
