do these msf courses supply leathers or do you have to bring your own?

You need to bring your own gloves and boots above the ankles. They will supply a helmet if you do not have one, but I highly recommend you buy one and use your own. Riding clothes are not provided.

I believe that you also have to wear jeans and a long sleeve jacket or heavy shirt.

According to the MSF training course I went to (from their website):

Minimum required gear includes:
-helmet and eye protection,
-sturdy over-the-ankle footwear,
-long-sleeved shirt or jacket,
-long pants, and
-full fingered gloves.

You must bring:
-Sturdy over-the-ankle footwear,
-eye protection (eye glasses, sun glasses, or helmet face shield),
-long-sleeved shirt or jacket, and
-long pants.

We'll provide:
-Helmets and gloves, but bring your own if you have them.

Helpful Hints:

-Bring rain gear, no ponchos (we ride in any weather)
-Bring sun screen (we ride in any weather)
-Bring drinks & snacks (it's a long day)
-Don't wear boots with high heels (can make braking and shifting difficult)

But check with your MSF training facility first, they may have different rules.

I hope this helps!!
:D

I had a person highside in my class and one lowside. You don't need full leathers, but I would treat it like you are going to ride on the street. A riding jacket and pant. Denim will do, but keep in mind if you eat it you will have minimum protection. Expect an ouchie if you do it that way and crash. Even at low speeds you can do a fair amount of damage.
