Over the years maybe 15 or 20.... just 2 in the past 5 years, maybe my patience has wore out...lol

I haven't trained many, and aside from Monica, those wussies don't even have bikes any more, or they talked big and never came thru. Different species I guess. ::)

I only teach very basics... so only two... as soon as they know how to the bike works and basics, I point them in the MSF direction. Also, I do not let noobs on my bikes. Matter of fact, I do not like people riding my bikes period.

I am not a professional and riding a bike is a different thing than driving (many people think it's the same or similar), so I'd rather have someone that can take 3 days, like MSF, and teach them properly.

Also, I don't want to pass along my bad habits to someone. I do not like to teach how to ride, if you want it bad enough, got to MSF and learn.

None, I'd feel responsible if something happened to someone I taught.

i'm not talking about having them riding a bike on a level approaching your skill level just basic starting and stopping and making a u-turn. just giving them an advantage over the ones in their mfs course that have never been on a bike. like i said 10 that i can think of and more like 20 to 25 people, i forgot about those dirt bike days as a teen and putting my non riding friends on the old 125
