Today I had a day off so I thought it would be a great time to get my license, great weather, bike running good, winter around the corner, only a few more weeks for the permit to be valid, just a perfect time for this ordeal. My bike was running good today, as I drove to the place I went over in my head all the rules that I THOUGHT would be on the test, every biker I know said the driving part is a joke, so dont worry, you'll have no trouble with it. So , I guess I was a little cocky before I even started, because I had put 6400 miles on my Hammer in the short time I've owned it. No problem, the first part I was to locate various controls on the bike, in rappet fashion, with no hesitation, as the instrutor said, What a B$%$#$ she was. I passed this part, thinking this IS a joke, THOSE OTHER BIKERS WERE RIGHT. Ok, lets get this done. Next part, weave in and out of the cones, without putting your feet down and when you finish this turn the bike around and stop on #1, then when she gave me the ok, take off shifting from 1st to 2nd then downshift to 1st and stop on the line. No problem, well there was a problem, the cones were only 10 feet apart, theres no way in hell you can do this on a wide tired hammer, that only knows how to go straight and fast. There were about 10 cones, here I go,made it around the first cone, setting up for the second cone,next thing I know, my feet are on the ground, made it around ONE cone and that was it, I only had 9 more to go----ITS IMPOSSIBLE TO DO THIS TEST ON A LARGE BIKE WITH A LARGE BACK TIRE THAT ONLY LIKES TO GO STRAIGHT. The instrutor told me to go inside and meet her at the window, I did, I asked her if I could use another bike and she said as long as its over 50cc. I said Thanks for nothing and I will see her again with a bike over 50 ccs. Has anyone else ever had this probllem?
