Good luck, hope you have nice instructors. the ones I had were great but I've heard stories of some that weren't so. We had to have our own helmet and gloves and ankle high boots the last being no problem as I wear OSHA approved for work.
March will seem like forever to get here especially if your new bike is coming in Feb maybe your dealer will give a % discount on gear many do when purchasing a new bike. You might want to check his prices/discount against similar gear on line.

M Show

The course provides helmets and motorcycles, but i'll probably just use my own. My dealership gives me 10% off accessories but theres a motorcycle show coming in a month i want to check out first so i can see what kind of deals they have there.

That should be a lot of fun. Does your state give out Motorcycle Permits first? If so, you can go ahead and purchase your bike and then ride it as much as you can before the MSF course. That is what I did and I rode with my friends. I don't know how much experience you have, but if you are inclined in going that route the MSF course will be much easier for you.

Good Luck and have fun at the bike show. Oh, speaking of bike shows...I think there is one coming up in Timonium, MD next month. :cool:

just remember, at least here, its an intro course, the real learning is when theres cars coming at ya
My wife has avoided three accidents based on what she learned in MSF. She followed the lesson instinctively in the real world and have kept it upright in some difficult situations.
A+ for the MSF

To take the MSF BRC (Basic Rider Course) you'll need a valid learner's permit, and you'll also need to have passed the state written test.

You are required to bring your own jacket, boots and gloves, but they can load you a helmet if you don't have one. They'll even loan you the bike.

I avoided 2 serious accidents using what I learned from them. I can't rave loudly enough my praise for them.
