Hey guys, 26 yo new member from Long Beach. I've never really ridden beyond my initial MSF in 2007. Decided to go back to school instead of betting a bike. Now that I've graduated and have some decent income I'm glad I waited because I like this bike better than the 250r I was considering before.

Does anyone know of a "brush up" MSF course in the la area that I could do in the evenings during the week? I work on weekends so I can't do one then. I'd rather not retake the entire MSF as I already have my license and have taken it before. Really I'd like to just have practice on bikes again before I run out and buy one.

Also, any recommendations on dealers in the area? Is 6500+ out the door pretty standard for an ABS model? Seems like its basically msrp+ fees. I don't want to travel too far from Long Beach because I'd rather not use freeways or heavily congested LA streets to get the bike home with almost 0 experience riding.

This seems like a great forum and I'm excited to finally be on my way toward bike ownership!

Hey RustyBoy -

Welcome!

I bought mine at Champion at 16th & Newport in Costa Mesa. From there it would be a fun ride home (PCH through Seal Beach, left through Belmont Shore then up to 2nd). Or....

In my case I didn't even have my permit when I bought mine so they delivered no charge. (Yeah, that was bad planning on my part.)

I doubt that their prices are much different than other dealers in the area, but I like the staff there.

If you go, as for Art.

If you buy, tell him that he owes the 'UCI Guy' a bagel and coffee!

Hope to see you out there on the road.

Hi rusty boy, I bought mine at Burbank kawasaki. I was able to talk the price down to $6,500 plus free first two service. That's the abs model. Man, had I known that mid cities deliver for free I would had gotten the bike from them. I'll post some pics of my bike here once I get it today. You should too as peepz here love pictures!

"I totally just graduated from UCI last year! Do you go there?"

Sorry to say it was not much more than a patch of dirt when I was in college.

Now I teach a couple of classes there - in the program for international grad students (finance mostly).
