Talking Need some more practice.

Is anyone willing to let me practice on their bike..? I took the Basic Rider Course and I am comfortable on a bike, but I was unable to pass the Riding portion of the exam. I really need to complete the maneuvers from the exam. So if anyone is willing to let me practice on their bike it would greatly appreciated. I am willing to pay for gas and will treat to a meal. Did I mention I am willing to pay for gas!!!

They have insurance that will cover you in case you crash I don't.


I thought you were getting a scooter. Don't you need to rent a scooter not a motorcycle?

Yeah, I'm getting a scooter, but I need my M class endorsement to legally ride the scooter and I can't do that until I pass the rider portion of the Basic Riding Class.

Didn't drop the bike and I didn't crash. Just over thought and over did a few things. Like braking too late, not down shifting enough and few other things. Nothing major. Just enough minor things to fail me.

You got it rough. Had a chick in my class who was a disaster and still passed.
Buy a250 & practice all you want. Go back and you will pass in 2 Weeks.
Good luck

I don't have to pay to retake the rider portion of the exam and I took it at Mancuso's H-D at Crossroads. Good class, hard riding exam.

I took mine at Mancuso Crossroads. Pass with flying colors and the only issue was the instructors thought I did everything too fast. Kept calling me "Speedy!"

Good class though.

We had a girl that dropped her bike at least twice and she still managed to pass. We also showed up for the class one day and the class prior to our, a guy had to be taken away in an ambulance. Don't think he passed!

Be hard pressed to get someone to loan you a practice bike, they are essentially an extension of our being. Miguel might do it, just don't drop the clutch !
