Riding Lessons with PRS for 2014 - Group Signup

Update: Round 1 Cut-off Monday April 26th 2012 -completed with 9 people

Update: Round 2 Cut-off Monday June 18th 2012 -completed with 6 people


More Information: http://www.pacificridingschool.com/?page_id=10
tl;dr - It's an 8-day course, with three different available schedules to fit around your work/school. You're responsible for bringing your own boots, but they'll supply all other gear including helmet and bikes.

The Round 2 discount will be back to the usual PRS group sign-up discount of $50 for groups of 3 or more. This brings the total to $725 + tax.

When you're ready, PM me and I will put you on the Committed list. Note: to get the $50 off you don't necessarily have to go to the same class as us, you just need to register with us.

Each time we get enough people on the Committed list, I'll kick off registration, and the group sign-up will reset.

Otherwise, if you don't indicate that you're ready to go, I'll put you on the Interested list, and you can PM me when you're ready.


Round 1 Completed April 26th
Spoiler!


Round 2 Completed June 18th

do it do it doit!

i went to visit PRS today, and the classes are starting to pick up. Talked to Dat (one of the instructors) about random motorcycle stuff...

I definitely recommend PRS...I went there 3 years ago, and still, to this day the riding mentality that they teach you still remains.

Got in touch with PRS; they're willing to do a bit more for Revscene members. $75 off with 3 or more people registering together, bringing the total down to $700+tax. You don't have to be in the same class, you just need to sign up together.

So. Who's interested?

very good investment for anyone interested in getting into riding. a lot of people can't justify spending $700 but acquiring a skill set that could make you a better rider and potentially save your life is priceless imo.

In order for this to work, somebody needs to organize this and lead the group sign up. It worked out last year but it sort of fell apart somewhere in the middle.

I encourage you guys to sign up as a group. It's a lot more fun that way and you all at least have a common denominator being on Revscene.

And +1 to what CharlieH said. That $700 or $800 will last you a lifetime.

^ Thanks for the title change / approval tag.

I'm leading the group sign up. Anyone interested, just put yourself on the list and we'll go from there.

jaemc: I'm pretty busy for the next two weeks but starting March 19th I should be good. I'm thinking the "Weekend Course" schedule sounds pretty good, but I can do "Night School" A/B as well.

Can't imagine riding my bike without having PRS training. Saved my life a handful of times already.

Nickname, Professor.

(I always suggest taking PRS during shitty weather because you get to learn in the worst of conditions)
