    I want to take a trip to this place in the spring or summer. http://www.midohio.com/school/

    I suggest that you look into the requirements, you may need an international driver's licsense or something like that. It would suck if you got over here ready to drive and there was some stupid requirement that you didnt know about to ruin your fun.

    U.T.I. would be the best school. Honda endorse's the school so you'd be working on a Honda more than likely. They have several differnt course's available. Diesel, Sport Compact, Bikes, or dare I say this without feeling the wrath of Muyo; Nascar. I looked into the Sport Compact course which is based out of Houston TX and Phoenix AZ I believe. The course does take 18months to graduate though so I'm not sure the time frame would work for you.
    How far are we gonna take this? The question is not how far. The question is do you pocess the constituition, the debt of faith to go as far as is needed.

    And sheppards we shall be, for thee my Lord for thee. Power hath decended forth from thine hand, that our feet may swiftly carry out thy command. So we shall flow a river forth unto thee and teeming with souls shall it ever be.

    I heard Wyotech is a really good place. They supposed to teach you everything, even custom fabrication and performance tuning as well. I heard some good things about UTI as well, as previously mentioned.

    what exactly are you looking for? cuz most technications require more than 6 months training.. i do know that there are some courses out there for 1 month n stuff like that, but i couldnt tell you off the top of my head

    What City are you going to be visiting?
    I ask this because I see some of the local community colleges around where I live offer weekend courses on many topics. I suggest doing an internet search about the city that you will be visiting.
