You are way over thinking this. And I think I imagined why she groaned. Maybe she had a cramp or gas or something.

When I came to prime we sat in a line all day....80 of us waiting for the physical and drug test. We were constantly drinking and peeing and I didn't get my drug test until 3pm cause of it. Everyone's first urine of the day is more concentrated than others. Women take them with their periods and blood gets mixed in. Graphic yes, but I bet DOT rules don't say anything about that. So calm down.

They watched you. Your couldn't cheat that way. In still wondering how long you were in the bathroom the first time before coming out cause it takes a LONG time for urine to cool. I have seen samples sitting in a desk for a but before being tested or marked. (Under observation of tester filling out forms).

After I gave all that I had, I stood there seeing if I had anymore for about a minute, it could have been two. I was pretty close to the fill line so I thought I could get it out of me some how. I was totally oblivious to the heat strip/shy bladder procedure. In the moment I thought I had to produce RIGHT NOW lol. I haven't taken a drug test in a while. Now I know better.

Thanks Kearsey

That is awesome. I plan on just riding in the street but loved the sound and look super sports since I was a child. Yamahas look great. I think its the best looking 600 but I heard its not comfortable for street riding. 2nd on my list is the 6r. leaning towards the Kawasaki because I heard its more comfortable and has more low end torque, which will come in handy in a city environment. But man, nothing beats the look of the r6, especially 2017+.

Thanks for the reply

The R6 have excellent handling, all of the sport bikes are more bike than we will ever use on the street. Most importantly though is tires, they must, absolutely must be at the proper pressure, in good condition and the correct type of tire for riding you are doing. I cant reccomend strongly enough, MSR courses and then bringing which ever bike you get to a track school and getting instruction at the track. It will save your life many times over and you may find that prefer track riding to the street, its safer, a controlled environment,, no speeding tickets, run-out and medical staff on standby. I sadly see 1 to 3 fatalites each week here during season, in the canyons, most preventable, almost all of them from rider error. shiny side up
