Do you want to be a MSF Rider Coach

Are you interested in being a MSF Rider Coach? Do you have a clean driving/riding record? Do you ride regularly? When did you last take MSF's BRC/ERC? If it was less than 3-4 years ago, you won't have to take it again. If it has been longer, you will have to take it again. I have been a rider coach, #123266 for 2 years now and I love it! This is the best job I have ever had! I would do it for free but they insist on paying me $27 per hour. I get to facilitate new riders through their first minutes on a motorcycle. I also have a "Milk Crate" to sound-off about good motorcycling habits to some more experienced "Old Heads" This is more than just a job, it's about making sure that motorcycle riders get the right skills to ride. After passing the Basic Rider Course (BRC) I encourage all new riders to practice in a vacant parking lot before going out to play with the big boys. After about a year, sign up for the Experienced Rider Course (ERC) you will ride your own motorcycle and learn some advanced skills. I know other experienced Rider Coaches who give private lessons to those who either don't want to take the MSF course or need one-on-one instruction. If you have never taken the MSF course, think about it...skills learned there will keep you safe. Go to to find out more about MSF. Also, for all of us California riders, the California Highway Patrol governs our program statewide. That web site is, http://www.ca-msp.org/ On this web site, CA residents can print an application to become a Rider Coach. Then find a site where the class is taught, find out who the site manager is, talk to them about a Rider Coach Candidate class. That is a 65 hour class that you will take before your get to wear the MSF or CMSP Rider Coach jersey. If you are interested, I will answer any and all questions to the best of my ability. -Ed :blah-blah:
