I just passed my learners,

Im interested in the course, but 800 dollars is almost 1/6th the cost of a brand new bike, so fuckin expensive

It's true it's expensive.

Actually NO it's not.

Even if it was $10,000 it will be worth it.... its YOUR LIFE we are talking about... A bike is replaceable hence it can be ANY price but your life is not replaceable.

Take the hit and take the lesson, I have learned SO MUCH from it that I used now when riding on the streets which includes just which position to take when riding to prevent (HOUDINI)


This is an article about "private" lessons

Okay we now have a third, enough to kick Round 2 off.

If anyone else wants to sign up for this wave, you have until Sunday night to get back to me. Given how long it took to get this one going, I would estimate that if we have a Round 3 it wouldn't go through until about late August / early September.

Monday morning I'm making the call to PRS, so that's the cut-off.

It's expensive but I don't think you'll regret it. They really do a very good job of not just teaching you how to ride, but going over survival techniques and statistics of how people die on their bikes so you know how to avoid those situations.

Thank you, RabidRat! Hopefully Round 3 won't be too far away (late-July)?
Oh, don't worry. I should have seen it earlier. It wasn't meant to be :'(

Imperial Motorcycles in Burnaby by Royal Oak skytrain station is one I've been to. They have a wide selection of jackets, pants, helmets and also boots I believe. Nice little place
