Re: Attention European riders (bruntr)

Hey bruntr,

Too bad i'm back stateside now, but just fyi. I believe the Kevin Schwantz Suzuki School will be coming back to Europe this Year. I know you expressed interest last year, but I think it was a bit late and our comms got screwed up. You might want to go to their website and check if you are still interested. If so e-mail or try to call Marnie Lincoln or whoever the P.O.C is, if it's changed.
The good thing about taking it over there is that Suzuki Germany offset the cost by about 50%. It was 500 Euros plus the 300 Euros refundable deposit for the bike in the event of a mishap. I think stateside price is around $1600.00 (if i'm not mistaken) You might want to check it out this year if you're inclined..

Just letting you know.
