After passing Les Schwab you come to the stop sign and make a left (like you said above). Go immediately to the left turn lane (about 100 feet) and turn left again. There are some small signs there for the airport. You'll drive about a mile and make another left just past the Coast Guard Air Station. There should be signs there for the airport cafe and the terminal building. It looks like you're pulling into Lektro's parking lot with the two huge hangars. After you drive past the Lektro hangars, you will see the cafe parking lot up ahead on the right. You wont be able to go any farther. The cafe parking lot is the end of the road.

I just got done with mine this last weekend. The first day on the course is pretty boring, how to move the bike, using clutch and stuff like that. The second day has some really good information and you get to pick the brains of people that have been riding for a long time and really know their stuff.

Nice to see another DSMer on the forum. Ive got a 95tsi with a evoIII that is slowly getting put together.

Team Oregon is primarily for new riders. You don't have to take it, you can just take the DMV testing. I took it in 07 with zero riding experience and also got to laugh my ass off at a guy who'd been riding for years, rode his Harley there, then failed the class. Had a real shitty attitude too.

The first night will just be class, then expect full days for the next two. each day will be half class/half course. The first day on the course will be boring for you and class will feel like minutes turning to hours, but if you have fun with it it'll go quick. Just don't pull any hooligan shit on the course, they'll kick you outtah the class and you'll loose your $$$ same goes for class, be there early. Not sure how they do it there, but in here, the class instructors made it very clear that class starts a "x" time and the door locks.

Twisties4me is an instructor, great person and phenomenal rider, PM him if ya have any questions, I'm sure he'd be happy to help.

Hope ya get good weather for your class, they do it rain or shine!

yeah I had to get up early too, and I'm in the same boat...early mornings fucking suck!!! Just shot-gun an energy drink or two. Take some rain gear and layer up if ya half to.

Don't do any partying (if you do) on that weekend, the last day will wear ya out, you'll be on the course more than half the day running drills and obstacles, listen carefully to the instructors and follow their directions to a "T"

Good Luck!

Psssst. . Check it, yo!

Legislature Passes New Motorcycle Law <----- CLICK HERE

It says this...

Since 1997, Oregon law has required all riders under age 21 to complete the course. The new law will be phased in for everyone: starting on January 1, 2011, all new riders under the age of 31 will be required to take the course. Bu January 1, 2015, everyone regardless of age will face the manditory training.

A separate law, House Bill 2370, will require insurance companies to provide a discount on motorcycle insurance to riders who complete an ODOT-approved rider education course. The amount of the discount is not prescribed by law, only that a discount needs to be given.

Yes,I know you are probably right. But you know how it is when you have a bike. You want toroode it! I was pretty much calling it bullshit because if I didn't have to take it I could have rode a month ago....I hear it is a good class and I will be all ears when I take it.I hope to learn something for $180!lol
