YES!

I wanted to mention it so bad, but I wasnt sure if anyone else was going to get it.

hahahahaa,

I want a cbr250r, nothing else.

my works pays for my mileage, and I want the most fuel efficient vehicle I can get, which is the cbr250r, 80mpg.

so work would pretty much pay for my bike over the long haul.

ninja250r = carb + no abs = gay + 50mpg

cbr250r = fuel injected + abs = win

probably get a used one,

dealer fee's are insane,

they say 4100 on the website, you end up paying 6 grand after taxes and fee's.

makes no sense

Agreed. VERY insane. Is it $4100 for ABS model?
I was looking at SV650 but I don't really want to pay $7799 for a new one but it's probably over my budget.

There are a few CBR250s for sale right now, good luck with your purchase

Finally registered for July 9th Weekday A

Oh LUCKY! Is it a good computer? At least a decent one?

I'm working out my budget right now ... may have to wait a few months before I have enough to pay for an expensive, shiny, new bike. I can't wait to graduate and get a full-time job to earn a little more money.

Haha yeah it's a beast of a workstation.

Is this your undergrad? Do co-op, it usually pays really well.

Yea, undergrad but it's my last semester. No more co-op for me.

look forward to july 9th, its epic

Great to hear you're enjoying the course. Got my verification document and all that so it's all set. July 9th, hurry on over :P

Ah, wise choice. I'm bored so I spend my time looking at bikes on craigslist and dealerships' inventories. I need a life

Oh, by the way. Are you all planning on taking the road test right after the course? Last year, Vanessa at PRS told me that if they get at least 3 students booked for a Monday road test, ICBC will assign the group a tester

Ah! I'm debating Night School A or B. For A I have a conflict with my last day so would need to push that back 2 more weeks. B should be no issues, but just consecutive days and a long long Saturday.

i'd like to do roadtest right after the course... while everything's still fresh in your head haha but depends when i have to work
ideal would be next wednesday since my last ride is tuesday

a group test sounds easier... never heard of such a thing though or anybody doing that

Ah yea, I'd prefer to take the road test right after the course. Who knows, maybe RIGHT after the last road ride at PRS ...

I'm not sure if it's a "group test" though. I'm guessing it's one examiner bringing one rider out at a time. If the examiner is observing three riders,
he/she might miss a mistake or something but I agree that group tests sound easier :P

It is not a group test. You are always tested on an individual basis.

I rode my bike last night.

I sometimes wish I had a 250cc. So much more comfortable and maneuverable in the city than my beast of a bike.
