well i have had many motorcycles over my life starting when i was 17 i am now 43 i have never had my licence i just jumped on and rode. i decided this time around i should get my licence. i got a permit and signed up for a local safety course were at the end of the course if passed you get your licence. well all went well i got 100% on both the written and driver skills test so i am not a licenced driver, the safety course was fun and i learned a lot would recomend it to any one.

Congratulations on your passing of both test. It feels great to be legal now doesn't it? That was a very wise decision to take the safety course. Did you take the beginners course where they furnished the bike? Hope you told your insurance agent about the course to get a discount.

Way to go. Continue to ride safe and enjoy it to the fullest.

After a couple thousand miles, Jerry motorman ( http://www.ridelikeapro.com ) has a great slow manuver course to truly challenge your skill. And for those of you who think you are at the level of Motor Officers, try the 18' figure 8....

I had to do the figure 8 in 24' in my course and it was tough on the 1200. I probably could have cleared 20' on one of the runs, but 18'! I'm curious nowto see if my brother could do it on my bike. He was a motor officer for several years. Hmm, I'll have to set something up sometime just for grins.

I took an 18 year hiatus from motorcycles, and when I picked it back up last fall, I realized that either I'd forgotten a lot about riding motorcycles, or I'd been left out in the rain too many times. So, I enrolled in a safety course, and brushed up on the fundamentals. I highly recommend it to anyone.

That would be funny. The good thing about this wing though, it just lands on the crash bar and when you pick it up, you can't even tell it's been down.

Nice new Avatar. Did you make it today?
