I remember seeing some at a sporting goods store once. I believe they were for marking corners of a kids soccer field or something like that, I can't really remember now. But you could look at a place like that. You don't need big ones really. Just something to mark off some corners/chicanes/slaloms.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

So 100 cones pays 200 bucks right?
Is it ok if they say city of houston?
I live by 59 and 288, lots of construction.
sorry , i have a thing for newbies. picking on the new guy gets me off.

soooo, a yamaha, huh?
why an r6?

The small ones that are used in the MSF class are good because you can roll over one without disrupting the bike too much. They might be designed for soccer or floor hockey.

I've heard that you can take tennis (they make them in all colors now) and cut them in half - now you've got two small 'cones' that will just bounce around if you hit them and are easy to stack & store in a tube for transport. Price is about right, too.

in my personal opinion, the r6s look like something from an entomology lab! you should go with honda...ie the 2006 f4i, then let me play around on it, if you know what i mean

There's someone that paid attention during their MSF course. Tennis work great. Use an old knife though.

Academy has 4"-6" cones for soccer.

Bigger cones are available at Home Depot.

PS
Take the MSF course to learn how to ride

...and, sadly, hit a few of the cones :BangHead:

I also received a hats-off salute after doing the last-minute-avoid-the-car exercise in the ERC. Instructor told me I was dead. Apparently I rear-ended the car.

I downright FAILED my msf course. my instructors yelled too much and the clutches on our buells were a pain in the ...or hand, rather, because i had blisters by the end of the day. what a miserable weekend and waste of money.

BRC I did fine - the ERC was what got me, and it was almost two years and 30k+ miles later. I guess I was a little cocky.
