You could always do the Advanced Rider training course first to learn on a smaller coned track with lots of runoff.

If you join Pitt Meadows you can join the beginner class and just learn technique. If you find yourself more advanced then you can be moved up a class. Just go with an open mind that you arent going the be the best there. Take your time to learn the bike and techniques.


On a plus note, I'm finalizing a deal on a Kayo 125 Race bike.. Cant wait to get out to PCMRC and start racing!!!

Where do you Triumph guys go for servicing that you can't DIY?
International Motorsports has basically told me they will only schedule a day for me to bring my bike in, but can't promise an actual day where it will be done.. ie, if I say I'll bring it in Friday, it will be done Saturday/Sunday.

I'm of the mind where I like to know exactly when my ride will be ready. Or is that not how it works in the non jap bike world and I should go fuck myself?

I've seen Nikola at Moto Meccanica working on a buddies Triumph. You could try giving him a call. He's a Ducati master tech, shop is in Burnaby. Otherwise find Sunfighter on here and bug him about where he goes.

Got a pair of Forma Ice Pro boots at Modern at a really great price. Woodcraft case sliders for a bike I don't own yet on CL.

I was hoping to get a bunch of things but the deals were just a bit lukewarm. Still have another 5 months to go so no rush.
