Should I retake the BRC?

I just got my bike (Suzuki TU250X), but I took the BRC a little over a year ago, with absolutely no riding in between. Should I take it again? I feel fairly comfortable on the bike, but I also feel like I missing some skills I know they went over in the BRC. I could also just train those exercises myself, but it's not exactly the same (the Hurt report seems to agree on that). The BRC is $330 from the place here, but it's worth it if I really need it.

Seems like only you can answer that, and I think to some extent, you already did answer your own question in that you should take it again.

$330? good god.
Take it in MD Returning Rider Course $125 non-resident (must be over 30 though).
Even the regular BRC is $225 or something for non-residents.

I really wish these courses weren't so much, in PA they are free for residents. I've known a lot of people that have turned down the course due to cost. It's a shame, they are great.

Maybe look into some different courses where you would be able to pick up additional information and skills. I considered taking the BRC again because there were cute girls in tight pants. Mostly ride as much as you can tho! Nice bike too..

If you're in Centreville, I'd enroll at NoVA CC Loudoun Campus. I think it's a buck fifty. And yes, you can never get too much training. I'm thinking about taking the advanced class with my own bike.

If you already took it once I would just ride and get more comfortable.
