Just found out about this website from a friend when I started taking the motorcycle course from Action last week and now those who ride (responsibly) has my supreme respect. I used to think there was nothing to riding a motorcycle other than maybe it's a little windier than a car. I used to think nothing more when I see a motorcyclist, but now when I see one I think of all the skills that he/she has that I have yet to master. I got on a motorcycle twice after my learners and thought "I could do this..." but after 2 days in the parking lot and the theories from Chris and Dat about THE REAL WORLD (not the ICBC idle speed U-turn and pebbles sized cones slalom world), HOLY CRAP my eyes are opened. The concentration, dexterity, and skills to ride a motorcycle on a road that a new driver in a 850 volvo can drive is amazing (and humbling). And now, I couldn't imagine why or how people would want to learn from anywhere else other than a professional school when their life depends on it as an 18wheeler rolls by.
anyways, just like to share that with people who wants to start learning how to ride who might be reading this site
