It's been quiet over here on this corner of the web lately, sorry! I've been so busy with finals, work, and most recently--acquiring my motorcycle license. I took the 4-day (two indoor, two outdoor) Basic Rider Course. I've been riding since I was a kid and have always felt super confident on a bike. I'll admit, the course taught me a thing or two. I highly suggest taking the course rather than just testing out for your license. It's really worth-while and you get to tool around on some of the funniest bikes I've every seen.
If you're in Pennsylvania, the PAMSP offers a number of courses for FREE.
