MSF practice range cones

I'm just posting a note in case somebody besides me goes looking for a set of the flat / stubby cones they use to mark the practice range for the MSF course. I've been looking all over for them, except the most likely place: MSF's web site.

They're $1.50 a piece--a little cheaper if you buy one of the big sets. Look under "Accessories".

After I passed my MSF and before I really did too many miles I did some "practicing" in the parking lot of the local elementary school. I used tennis balls cut in half as my markers.

I used pine cones teaching my son to ride.

I picked these up in a local sporting goods store. Cheap, compact and easy to ride over.

Not to piss on your parade but that's not a good idea. Rubber tire, nearly flat-plastic, and pavement. If you hit that in a lean, you're going to have a bad time.

If you're open to it, go cut some tennis balls in half. Nearly identical to the MSF cones. I had to teach MSF and used those when I couldn't get to the rubber cones. Works just as well and no pucker factor if you hit one in a turn.

We always used cheapo red plastic disposable cups when we were doing nooby practice days.
