I write stuff. A lot of it is about cars and motorcycles.

I Passed

It was a long, hot day on the MSF riding range today. Officially, the air temperature was 95. On the asphalt pad, it must’ve been significantly hotter.

We did lots of turning, cornering, and swerving, then we took the skills test. They docked me three points on my emergency stop, but overall, my rider evaluation score was 97, which was the second highest in the class.

But I was happy with the score, and happy to get my MSF card.

Now, I just gotta get my certificate, and I’m good to go.

Fortunately, both of my instructors work on Camp Pendleton, so after I pick up my bike tomorrow morning, I’ll drive my truck to Pendleton, and I can pick up my certificate.

Hopefully.

If all goes well.

Good Lord willin’.

Creek don’t rise.

  • Heh, it’s a slippery slope; here’s the bikes I’ve had in the last eight years:

    2007 Vivid Black Harley-Davidson FLHRI Road King (Black Maria)
    2005 Black Cherry/Black Pearl Harley-Davidson FLHTCUI Electra Glide Ultra Classic (The Mutt Slayer – Ret)
    2004 Red/Silver Harley-Davidson FLHRI Road King (The Barcalounger – Ret)
    2001 Red/Silver Kawasaki Nomad FI (Ret)
    2000 Red/Silver Yamaha V-Star Classic 650 (Ret)
    1972 White Honda 750 Four Chop (White Boy – Ret)
    1966 Blue/White Harley-Davidson XLCH Ironhead Sportster Chop (The Boneshaker – Ret)

    A wee bit of advice, go to this site ( http://www.ridelikeapro.com ) and spring for the Ride Like A Pro DVD then practice the techniques Jerry teaches. I can drag the floorboards on my Road King following his methods. Also, here’s a couple of forums that have Sportster sections that will help with questions and general knowledge: http://groups.msn.com/harleytechtalk
