    Exclamation Calgary Motorcycles Schools/Schedules?

    Always been interested in motorcycles to one degree or another, starting to think seriously about getting my class 6, but it seems like its really hard to find a schedule/information about riding schools in town. I'm more worried about not enjoying motorcycling than anything, so a school that you can borrow a bike from for the sessions would be best. I've tried checking the CSC's website and they don't list any schools in Calgary for whatever reason, does anyone have any useful information or links on schools happening in and around Calgary?

    Ack, was looking on the Canada Safety Councils lists and they didn't show anything happening in Calgary for whatever reason. My bad, should have narrowed my search a bit more.

    They support gloves accully, and helmets.. And shoes they dont really care, but would like ankle high shoes..

    Brav85 - Super fun, all the bikes are new..


    wildkarrde - CSC is not bad i heard also, but you dont get this same feeling on a dirt bike like you would on a street bike, feels alot different. Too Cools bikes are all new bikes..and they have a few cruisers, and a dirt bike u can take the test on.

    The best motorcycle driving school in Calgary is "A" Driving School. They have won the consumer choice award for the past three years straight! Great school, great instructors and great prices. Check em out at http://www.fleetsafetyinternational.com/

    In terms of what you get out of the school, do any have an advantage over the other?

    Calgary council seems cheaper (marginally), start out with lower cc bikes and a couple more hours driving

    TooCool seems more expensive (marginally), start out with a stronger bike under supervision.

    I'm not really sure which way to go, stronger bike with supervision seems really nice but not sure if it's the right way to go. Who else has taken TooCool or knows someone who has?
