My girlfriend took the MSF course last weekend and did pretty well. She had not ridden much prior to the class and by the time it was over she knows how to operate the clutch pretty good, shift and stop. I did not stay for the class at all, not because i didn't want to watch but i thought it would make her nervous and i didn't think the instructions would really want an audience. I did swing by for lunch and they were riding on the range and she was doing great and having fun. she was so nervous going into the class but now she cant wait to ride the TW again. Im trying to bring her along slowly and safe, so far so good.
