              I definitely don't see or run into a lot of TTI bikers. I was also at the Ikea meet.
              I always felt that I had to work harder than the next guy, just to do as well as the next guy. And to do better than the next guy, I had to just kill em.

                I ended up not making it to the ikea meet. I ended up playing volleyball at assinaboine. On the other hand, while we were playing, about 6 or so sport bikes rode by and I can never seem to catch that group when I'm out on the road.

                    Pretty boring low speed riding. Not hard at all.

                        Riding fast is easy since you have more balance. Slow speed riding is a good thing to learn since that's where you do your stop and go traffic, turns, etc. There is a heavy focus on slow speed riding, but less focus other things like lane choices in different scenarios which is unfortunate. You'll have to do your own learning for that (videos/articles/etc.).

                                The short basic course is designed for people with some prior experience. The longer one goes into some more emergency type situations. You can only cover so much over a few hours each day. Beyond SSM best to read up lots, ride as much as you can, and look outside of the province for advanced schools besides the MRA track day school which just ended.

                                I'm looking into organizing some other opportunities from some programs out of the US for up here...

                                    Where's the best place to buy riding gear locally? Every place I checked is closed today cause of the long weekend, I tried not to be last minute I swear!

                                        Theres a bunch of those out there already. This one's just for kicks. If anyone is just out they can message in there. Or just chat bikes in a more live manner
