So are you guys aware of the changes in the Motorcycle Safety Classes in\nCalfornia?\n\nThey used to be run by the California Motorcycle Safety Program (which\nwas "supervised" by the CHP) - they were CMSP, not MSF classes, they\nmerely used MSF materials. As of Jan 2004, the classes are being run\nby the Motorcycle Safety Foundation. So those of us who kept calling\nthem MSF classes will finally be technically correct!! [NOTE: some\nmight think that the CSMP was dumped to save money, but it actually made\na tiny bit of profit!!]\n\nI beleive (but am not sure) that passing the BRC still gets one out of\ntaking the riding test at the DMV, but the course structure has been\nre-vamped. One change is talking about crashes: under CMSP they\navoided and discussion of motorcycle crashes (tried to keep the class\nup-beat), now they go into detail about crashes and what leads to crashes.\n\nAs far as range work (which is the most important part of it, IMHO) I\nthink most of the exercises remain unchanged. [Although, I wish they\nwould have raised the bar a bit - when I took the BRC I almost started\nscreaming out of boredom for the first range day. The "Buddy Push" is\nhumiliating.] I am not sure about changes to the exam - when I find\nout more I'll let ya all know.
