My husband grew up riding motorcycles from a young age, mostly dirt bikes. He had a street bike when we first married. He never had any formal training. When our son was 6 mos old he crashed. He was not seriously hurt but I was very shaken. I asked him not to ride anymore until our son was grown. He agreed. When our son turned 18 my husband went out and bought a motorcycle. He also scheduled both of us for the beginner MSF course. Even though he had a lot of experience he did learn a lot in the class. He also found out the mistake he had made that caused the crash 17 years before. I had no experience at all and the class was great for me also. There was a good mix of experience levels of the people in the class. The instructors were great.

We now have been riding, safely, together for three years. I would recommend the MSF course to anyone who has not had formal training even if they have lots of riding experience.
