    I'm sure you could pick up a copy of "learning to ride a motorcycle for dummies". It would be so much cheaper than driving out to a certified riding school to learn from people who are proffessionals and have enough experience to help you learn to ride safe.
    ... I did Action. The time, money and effort was WELL worth it. You'll thank yourself (or me for that matter) when you do.

    I had to hop a ferry at 5:30 in the morning drive all the way from Horseshoe Bay to Ladner for each of my classes.

    It's your fuggin life man. If you can't afford a 30 minute ride to your class.... Geeeeeesh.

    Taking your motorcycle learners course is one of the most important things you will do in your lifetime now that you have chosen to ride a motorcycle.

    There is no more Action.. It split up, you want Pacific Riding School.
    Although, I had my first class last night and Dat was was taunting me and pushing me.

    I took the B.C. Safety Council course and it was great too. They run their program out of Boundary Bay airport.

    Ryan,
    Action Motorcycle School 604-590-8876 is most definitely still in business!

    Why would you tell people it isn't ?
    RIP Julia, our shining light

    Go to Pacific Riding School. Dat, Chris, Mo and all the boys that made Action so good are found at PRS.

    That's my $0.02

    Is our BCSB membership good for anything with Pacific? Cuz on some forums, it is fairly typical for forum sponsors to give a little 10% - 15% discount to forum members.
