I scored a 20. I think 21 or more points is a fail. I guess one thing is for sure. I’m not ready for the streets. Too bad,as I was really looking forward to riding to work.May 31, 2010 at 7:31 pm #26839owlieParticipant
But you passed! Congratulations!
I hope that you take your new experience and knowledge and reconsider your first bike. I seem to remember you posting up a rather nice sportbike with some lovely fairings and “squid” painted on the side in invisible ink.
Take a look at some Ninja 250s to ride for a couple of months. Take it slow, easy and sane, and you won’t regret it.
And… Congratulations!May 31, 2010 at 10:58 pm #26843IBA270Participant
Napoleon, ping me with where you lost points, if you can remember, and I can help you with a practice program. You are correct in your self assessment, and I’m glad that you have recognized it: you are not ready for the streets. The good news is, that you’re 100% qualified to now find a place where you can set up some drills and practice your skills so we can get you there. Motorcycling is an aquired skill, and you’re in the middle of aquiring it. Don’t get down over this: it’s normal.June 1, 2010 at 2:41 pm #26853JackTradeParticipant
On both passing, and honestly assessing your abilities.
That’s pretty rare (both that is…many riders haven’t had any sort of professional instruction, and as you’ve no doubt witnessed, have a less than honest assessment of their skill level), and bodes well for a long life of safe motorycle riding.
And Owlie…that is the comment of the day IMO….”‘Squid’ written in invisible ink.” I love it!June 2, 2010 at 1:10 am #26877eternal05Participant
