I'm planning on taking the motorcycle knowledge test tomorrow and I already have my class 5. Will they just issue me that yellow paper if I pass? Or they'll combine it on my license even though I'm a learner still

You'll get a paper 6L with supervisor restriction, then when you pass your MSA you'll get a paper 6L without supervisor restriction. So your Class 5 will still be your primary identification but you need to carry your 6L with you especially at school.

Once you pass your Class 6 road test, they'll confiscate your Class 5 License and give you a paper Class 5/6 and mail you and new Class 5/6 License. No going to the bar for me at the moment since my passport expired.

It sucks so much not having a bike, I'm like obsessed. Should I just get a cheap cheap cheap CBR 125 to hold me out for the next few years?

Also, I wonder if it's possible to put winter tires on a Can Am Spyder and use it as a year round rider here in Kelowna.

^^ Right??? They do use standard car tires, I think 165/60R14 front and 205/50R15 back.

I did ride my scooter all last winter except for like two days when there was a substantial amount of snow and ice on the road. I rode when it was -6 one morning. It was a bit freaking cold, but was good. Typical Kelowna winter temperatures are +3 in the day and -4 at night, and it gets just a bit more snow than Abbotsford.

Might not be as fun on three wheels as two wheels though, but I'd have to find out.

^^ me too, I failed the first time. Wording is odd and the reference pictures are incorrect. So don't beat yourself up over it.

Dkaz- does the spyder have reaction or stability control? If it does, you're gonna have to find a way to disable it or else it will be 100% useless it any sort of snow situation

Some drifto action. He does mention something about VSS.

Something more typical of what I would use it for:

Just a thought. Can Am Spyders are pricey so something many years away. Saw a 2008 for $10k.
