um, be smart about this...paying the ticket fine means it goes on your record right? which jacks up your insurance rates, so you'll be paying more in the long run

I know when I took the MSF a few years ago, they had an "Advanced Rider Course" that went into more technical riding...since you're in TX too, I'm sure it should be available to you as well

well when you get a ticket in a car y can do online driver ed for like 20 bucks, the advance course costs 90. I was just wondering if there was an online bike option but there doesnt seem to be. I called the DMV and they told me to take the advance course too, since it is the cheapest option. I askd about track days and the lady laughed, and said no.

Guess I will report back after taking the advance class. Has anyone done it? any good?

I thought about ordering an electric scooter for real for real. But I don't think the base commander would like that much. Lol.

7 year old tires. Must be pretty brittle being on the bike so long. I'd change em. Burn out the rear till it pops 1st.

Just bought a bike!

1991 Ninja 500 with 10K miles that I picked up for $325.

This thing was wrecked and needs a little TLC but runs strong. I am in the process of turning it into a sweet Street Fighter!!!
