Hey guys! Well this past weekend i took the MSF course here in Illinois and passed it. I was really suprised considering i have never even sat on a motorcycle before. Man was that class helpful. It was tons of fun too. During the first day of riding i actually crashed my bike into the curb. I was making a sharp sharp sharp 90 degree turn, pulled on the throttle all the way for some dumb reaon and went right into the curb throwing me off the bike. i hurt my shoulder but couple minutes later found the balls to get back on the bike. Now im always ready for the worst to happen. anyways i only got 4 points off from the riding and and aced the written. ill prolly go to the DMV in a couple of days to get the lisence. As of now im really thinking about getting the 98 and up katana as my first bike. i bought all my gear so far and now i just need to find the right deal on that Kat. PEOPLE WHO HAS NOT TAKEN THE MSF/BRC CLASS MAKE SURE TO TAKE IT!!!!!!
