3/4 of the way through the first day, he said he was tired and was going to sit the next few exercises out. He didn't show up the next day.

He got tired from those exercises...... wow that's pretty sad. The people at my MSF were piss poor too. They honestly shouldn't have passed, I can't even count how many times they dropped their bikes

When I took my MSF, I was one of 4 people there without any riding experience. Two of the others that didn't have any experience failed miserably (scarily too, because they had just retired and wanted to get a GL1800 as a first bike to ride around the country). The other girl had no experience and she did alright but dropped the bike once. They stuck me at the front of the line and told me to slow down more times than I care to remember. I like scraping pegs on a TW200.

Yeah same here. Me and my friend teamed up with two other riders and we were the only ones with actual road experience in our class.
Two guys were all decked in brand new expensive gear, and were afraid to ride over 20mph. They both dumped their bikes numerous times.

The instructors yelled at me for going too fast for the braking part of the course. He wanted me to go like 15 MPH. I told him id rather do it at speeds I will actually be doing on the road, and he just stared at me lol
