You mean this?
PRS Registration Page

If so, you'd have to choose a course type. This will open up another tab below where you can select the date (calendar icon). If the date you wanted is greyed out, it's probably full. You'd have to select another date or course type

Ah, my bad. In that case, then send RabitRat a private message (committed/interested). When a new group is created, you'll be added on

Nice! gdoh, have you been on 2-wheels before prior to the course? Ride to DT? That's quite far but enjoy! Mine starts on Monday *dies*

Yeah I'll set up a third round, just been busy with work the last few weeks.

Send me a PM if you're ready to commit (need 3 committed to get it going), otherwise I will put you down as interested.

If you buy it from Burnaby Kawasaki, talk to Dat first.
He has some advice if you go there. Brian and Trevor will help you out.

Give Dat an email. But remember, Dat does not have a smart phone, so he may not respond right away. LOL.

Man am I exhausted ... I can't believe how much we've learned in just 2.5 days of lot training. I was so worried about going on the road today; stalled the bike a handful of times OTL No fun. It didn't help that they put me on a different bike for the ride.

Monday will be our LONG road ride. Excited but nervous. The highway was FUN! So glad there weren't any cars to worry about when merging. I'm terrified of highways ...

It can be a little mentally and physically exhausting at first. Once you start to feel more comfortable, it will get more relaxing.
Just remember, if you start to panic, Breathe and clutch and brake
