Now that I've been lurking on the forums for a couple of weeks I realize I should have probably done this a bit ago. My name is Eric, I'm 35, in the USAF, I got two wheels under me on an 87 honda magna, and it died as my son was born. Since then I've been lusting after one bike or another, but not in a position to buy anything. I finally settled on a RE a couple of years ago, and two weeks ago I broke down and bought a showroom 11' Bullet Military. I was looking at the Classic in red but my better half decided that the OD green looked better on me. Uncle sam says I have to have a motorcycle safety course before I can ride, which I did years ago but since I can't find my card, I have to wait for a few months till I can take the course again (Darn the MSF and their non record keeping habits). Until then I'm working on saddlebags, fork bags, and a few other odds and ends for the bike. I'll try and upload photo's of projects once they are complete.
I took it once in the past, but have since lost my card, and the MSF doesn't keep records. If you ask me it's a scam to get the government to fork over another $200 to send me through the class.
Wait a minute... my MSF class cost $300!
Welcome! And congrats on the new bike. Don't be too hard on Uncle Sam. That class is great, especially if it's been a while since you've been riding.Scott
Well if I recall the rules is you can't ride on base without your cert and large orange vest, but once off base your license is all you need. Got a buddy off base with a garage?
