Let me know when this is going to happen. I would be up for it. The last one was fun and I learned a lot.

Monday is out for me, but don't not go on account of me. I just want Ryan to be riding legally.

Traffic's been kinda f'ed on 55 lately but I should be there by 6:30 if I'm not it's because of traffic but I will definately show up. Thanks Ken, I really appreciate it.

Why not do this at the DMV when they are closed? The two I know of have the course painted on the ground, that way it should be real easy doing it since you know exactly what moronic swerve o' rama you have to do to pass. Unless Ken is doing the slow speed stoppie course too

Oooooh, look at the pretty colors

That's not a bad idea but the only one that I know of that you can actually go and practice without getting hassled by bored local police is the one in Midlothian, kinda incovenient for everone. The instructor actually told me I should come back when they're closed and practice. After Ken's lessons I plan on going there and riding that silly course over and over until I can do it in my sleep so I know for sure I'll pass next time and not stand in line for 4 hours for nothing, cursing the model of inefficiency that our DMV is.

I may not make it to the gas city in time. That's why I asked for the directions to the school

Argh...

I think I could use one of these lessons.

Jim's been talking of doing a northside version of this. Only problem is finding a good location.

Considering ALL my damage has been due to low speed lack of balance (knock on wood), you know I could use this.

True Kim..

That mall has like...ONE store left there. Bummer I'm super busy on most weekends through August. Army annual training, reserve duty, batchelor party, wedding(s), etc. And I still need to break in the house with a suitable party.

But I need A/C before I do that!
