Excellent, well worth the time and $, especially for city riders. "Tonnage always wins" is a useful rule to remember, and it's best not to learn it the hard way. Now if there would just be a similar but mandatory course for auto drivers to teach them: 1) hang up and drive, 2) the purpose of the lever on the left side of the steering column, along with how and when to properly use it.
