Taking MC safety course is a good idea for many reasons, including an insurance discount. Most single vehicle MC accidents result from operator error/ignorance. Whether the law requires MC training or decent MC safety equipment is of little importance - if you have a $10 head then buy a $10 helmet.
I have ridden MCs for over 30 years, was a certified MC safety instructor and have been in MC street accidents 6 times, breaking bones in 4 of them. Safety, as defined as absence of risk, does not exist while operating a MC. Learn and practice your riding skills, defensive driving techniques and wear appropriate protective gear.
The typical excuse used for MC accidents is "I didn't see the MC" but that is 99.9% BS - what else can they say but "I was not paying attention, I saw the MC but figured they would either get out of my way or do little harm to me in a collision".
Ride aware, ride often and have fun.
