My company sent me there do take their advanced mechanic course as a refresher. I had a good time. What I found most interesting (aside from the riding I did) was that it was a great way to remember why I do things the way I do them. I also found out that there were a few things that I had been doing wrong, habitually, for years. I had to unlearn a few bad habits!

I went to BBi in '98 when I was just getting started as a bike mechanic. Back then the class I took was called "The Elite Technicians Program". I loved it because it gave me confidence in what I knew. Prior to going I had to rely on the seasoned mechanics but they all had different answers or really bad answer.
I went back in '01 to get BSE Tech 1 and tech 2 certified.
I've heard good and bad things about UBI.
