That being said, Iím looking at buying a used bike. How did you guys bring home your first bike if you didnít have anyone to help you? I was thinking of calling a flatbed tow truck to tow it home lol
i did my road prep and rides with 1st gear, the course was good i enjoyed it i did it in coquitlam since its closer for me, and had more spaces, it right next of the ikea, if you need someone to help you bring a bike home, hit me up and i can ride it to your place. for my first bike i got it in abbotsford the a day after my mst and rode it straight home. the course will prep you, and give you the confidence to ride on the street.

Met the rider 2 nights ago, had a nice run to tawassen and back to Coco for bbt. His goodbye was our last together. Nice young chinese guy on an R6.

Right now it's too early to tell what happened cuz there were no witness but last known location was Lions Bay and stopped to take a call. After that no one knows what really happened.

His group rode ahead to Squambucks and waited for an hour and then went back to find out what happened at the scene.

Everyone ride safe and call the RCMP if you see any white Honda/Toyota missing a rear bumper

RIP Brother

I have my class 6 road test coming up in March and wanted to know how strict is ICBC(examiner) with mods on your bike?

I bought my Yamaha R3 with a couple mods on it and it didn’t come with the OEM parts to put it back to stock. It has a akrapovic slip-on exhaust and LED turn signals that sit flush with the fairings.

Do you guys think I might be able to get away with the mods?

I don't think they care, to be honest. As long as the bike is functional and has all lights function and are visible, you should be ok. If I recall, and this was over a decade ago for me, you do a quick walk around with the road test adjudicator.

If in doubt, and assuming you took a a course through a school, you may be able to use or rent their motorcycle for your road test. The alternative to that is to ask a good friend to lend you their bike. Good luck!
