Excellent first step taking the MSF course. If you want to extend your learning curve while getting more riding experience, there are a number of excellent books out there. Some of them are actually fun to read, too. A riding buddy of mine is a long time MSF instructor, and even though I've been riding for 40+ yrs, I still learn something from him just about every time we ride together. It may be something small, or something I've just never thought of, but I always like to keep learning.
