Thank you for your advice. I was planning on taking the course through Evergreen in Seattle (classroom) and Renton (practical). I am not sure if I am worried about nothing of if this is going to be a huge challenge–obviously I want to pass the course so I don’t have to take the test through the state licensing people.
Most of the motorcycle people I know seem to think is is mostly a matter of practice and that the coordination will come. I just worry whether I will be able to do this in 8 hours or not. I will be considering buying a bike in advance, I guess, and trying to practice in a little, given some instruction perhaps from a friend. Thanks.
