      Hello,

      When I first started riding I had a hard time finding class 6 practice buddies. Thought I would pay it forward and help out any new riders with a class 5. I live in the SW but can meet you anywhere in the city. If it's a longer trip then a little gas money would be appricated. Anytime after 6pm mon-fri, all day on the weekends

      Thanks

          Yeah…don’t think you’ll get a response there, but I’m sure someone can help you out…we’ve got a few experienced riders in the crowd.

          You in Calgary or Edmonton?

            I’m in Edmonton, I have limited on and off road experience. I actually just booked with a motorcycle training course here in town. Though I wouldn’t mind finding someone to ride with, most of my friends who are local don’t ride.

                In the Camrose at the Encana parking lot, we have practice every Tues at 7:00 Pm.
                We are just a small group of riders that believe practice is a good thing. All riders are welcome irregardless of skill level.
                We usually end the night with a coffee and a few tall tales, some of witch are actually based on a true story.

                  Hi!

                  Anyone willing to help escort me to a road test? I have the written permit but it expires this year April 23rd…. Ideally I’d like to get a road test in this week Saturday April 22nd. There are times available in the morning at the registry by Northland Mall. I would need someone to escort me from Sandstone (Calgary NW) to the registry, ideally I will pass the test and you won’t need to escort me home :).

                  Just need maybe an hour of your time! Lunch on me!

                    @HondaEd, I can help you on Sunday morning or next week only. There are some registries that have Sunday appointments.

                      Hi! I bought a bike last year and just havent been able to get enough practice on my bike. I am looking for a practice buddy to help me prepare for the road test. I can help pay for gas as I feel I still need a few pointers. Can anyone help a brother out?
