My bro is thinking of signing up for a class this spring. I'd be interested in the schedule as well.

"includes 10 used-car dealers or auto repair shops, 11 liquor stores and bars--two of which advertise lingerie fashion shows and a third billed as a "gentlemen's club"--three cut-rate motels and one trailer park. The squat, brick municipal building is next to a currency exchange and a few steps from an adult video store. The bars open at 10 a.m. and close at 6:30 a.m."

I highly recommend the SRTT class especially after a winter of not riding.

First they teach us how to get it running so you can take it to where you want to pose. You have to go through that class first.

Normal classes you use their bikes BUT I do believe you take your own for the SRTT classes.

yeah it looks like you use your own bike for the classes done at the track. i was just wondering on the basic classes. my friend will probably be taking this class and she's not ready to be riding on the streets yet till she takes a course or gets more practice. so i was trying to figure out whether i needed to get the bike there for her or if they have them. looks like she can just show up and use theirs.

we have everything. the only thing she needs is take a written test at any secretary of state facility and have the permit they give her there that states she passes the written part.

Yeah +1 to that.. Ride Chicago was the shit. My money was well spent. Jenya was my instructor on the first day..... there was one exercise (one of the first) where we just go straight... my bike kept veering off to the left. She gave me that... are you fucking retarded look. Hahahaha priceless.
