Good luck on your road test
Clutch and brake, shift down shift down shift down XD
Then I'm going to go to Seattle now Portland :P
Love PRS

Oh, and did PRS send you guys the powerpoint they presented before going out for the first road ride? I haven't received mine yet and would like to go over the slides. If you have it, would you mind forwarding a copy? Thank you

Justin as in "Sonic"? lol. It's "Sidewinder", haha.

Your road test or you mean the MSA test?

Just finished the PRS course tonight. It was a blast and got to try out 3 different bikes. You'll learn lots, and not only for bike riding as the things can be applied for driving or any other activities too actually. Highly recommended.

Alice, no slides given out before going out on the road.

I bet everyone gets the same names over time or else it'd be so hard for them to recall everyone's name with a new group every single week! haha

picked up my 1996 Kawasaki ZX-6R today!!

holy fucking shit that thing is powerful.. i was using the CRFs at PRS and that thing feels like a pedal bike compared to this, no joke
gonna spend the next few days just getting accustomed to the bike... alot less maneuverable and heavier

but damn i'm excited lol just have to keep remembering to shoulder check/clear intersections

Nice! Did you also register for the mock road test?

By the way, have you bought your 2011 ninja 250? I'm thinking of a white ninja 250 but the cbr250 with abs is making it a hard choice

Yeah as hot as the white 250R is, the ABS will save your ass.

Nice...Kawasaki has a summer promo now; your choice of cash credit or 0.9% financing for 36 months but if you're paying full amount, then it doesn't affect you :P

ApexSeal - yea! That's my delimma. Aesthetic shouldn't play a major part in the decision-making process but it's dang hard to ignore the white 250R. If there was a white CBR250, then I don't think I'll have this problem.

A dual purpose (Honda CRF250L) would be my ideal bike but the seat height is way too high for me

If this is Sonic, I emailed Ashley and they have ordered more small PRS t-shirts. Remember to ask for yours.

Not much, just catching up with work after the 1-week intensive session, haha. Itching to ride, but still need to buy my own gear and bike.
