Obviously, you think that you might personally benefit from it, and it's not a huge investment in money. If you manage to avoid the simplest fender bender because of being a little more conscious or skilled, that makes it very worth it, right?
I agree. Many riders I know take it every couple years just to stay fresh.......and it gets you a discount on most motorcycle insurance.

Sadly no one in my city offers the class. When I asked them about it they said they don't do it very often and should just take the brc1 again... Thinking of going to race school.

A fourth kind of training that I wish we had here in the USA, and that I see in the UK is out on the street. I feel fortunate that there is a new organization called the Empire State Motorcycle Safety Education Program starting up here in New York. They do free training in libraries and the instructor mentioned that they are developing a street course. From their website, "ESMSEP is in the process of developing a riding program called SkilledRider Safety Tours to get you out of the parking lot with real time road riding to widen your awareness and skill development." I think this is a much needed service and really, we can't wait for the MSF to do everything.

This may be something that others can ask local schools about. I think it's a huge hole in our training that could be filled.

I've take the California ARC and the MSRC and I enjoyed them. However I wouldn't pay for them (in the military so they were provided free). The things they teach you can be learned in a parking lot with some friends and some youtube. If you are in socal, there's a really good track riding course up here at willow springs. Good luck!
