I took the Harley msf basic rider via a local dealership because HD was offering many more classes than the local colleges etc so I got in faster. Course was very good, the extra day tacked on for the HD indoctrination was neither here or there, ie forgettable OTOH the classroom facilities in the dealership for the video and written test portions were great. OTTH I saw a couple of guys in the class in deep conference with salespeople after so maybe HD picks up a fair # of sales via the BRC courses.
Thought the Blast was a really good learner bike, probably would make a good "local" non-highway bike too being so light and moderate to ride.
