I've have it and I've read it. It is a great book. I plan to re-read it.

For me, though, the struggle is not with intellectual understanding. It is partially about experience, but that will just have to develop over time. The reason I'm interested in classes is I feel I need concentrated practice and coaching on some of the basic skills I've already mentioned. I could read a shelf full of books and not be able to do those any better. I could ride my next 10,000 miles and only use some of those skills rarely, not often enough to get better at them. But those few times I do use them, they could make the difference between crashing and not crashing.

I did find out that the VA State Police are still offering that course I took with them last year. I just signed up to take it again in two weeks. Between now and then, I'm going to get out my cones a few times practice some of the exercises.

I love the training classes. Ride safe NC is a pretty good class. Pairs you up with Police motor officers. Class time and street time. But I live by this. Practice, ride , read, repeat. Local HD dealers heve Riders Edge. Beginners and experienced courses.
