How many of you have had some new formal training in the last year? What was it? Or how long has it been since you had any? I believe everyone should every year or two, to keep our skills fresh. I took the MSF beginner course to get my license about 2 years ago, and the Experienced Rider course about a year ago, and I was glad I did. I treat every ride as practice, but having someone to tell you stuff you didn't know you were doing wrong is well worth a couple hundred bucks and a half a day of training.
On a side note, my favorite Youtube channel is MC Rider. Kevin Morris is a MSF trainer out of Fort Worth who has a whole series of videos for beginners, and a new video every week on various safety topics. His philosophy is get and keep your crash-avoidance skills as sharp as you can, and then use strategies on the road that hopefully keep you from ever needing to employ those skills. Who can argue with that?
