Terry,

That's why the ring in question has so much sentimental value.

Motorcycle Safety Class :-(
« Reply #212 on: December 10, 2006, 07:08:08 PM »

Hi everyone,

Friday's class went well.  We had introductions, watched educational videos, and were divided into working groups to answer workbook questions.  Saturday we were on the Nighthawk 250s most of the day.  Then an hour or so of study and videos.  Sunday we were on the bikes all day except for about an hour of calssroom which included the written test.

I did really well riding both days until the test.  I had stage fright testing infront of 11 classmates and spectators.  I failed my riding test.  I failed the "S" curve that we had to make inside a box.  I went outside of the box.  (I thought thinking or being outside the box was a good thing, lol).  On another curve test I went too wide.  During the emergency stop test they said I anticipated and stopped too soon.  I had two tries.  The first time I did.  The second time my 11 classmates clapped - everyone thought I had made it.  Guess not.

I passed the written test.  That doesn't help me.  I don't get my motorcycle license at the end of the class.  I'll have to practice everything on the V-Rod and go to the DMV for both the riding and written test.  

I am disappointed.  Two of my classmates also failed the riding test.   :'(

I did well riding both days.  I had stage fright testing in front of everyone.  It was timed.  My timing was off, too, which cost me points.  Grrr......

I will get a learner's permit.  I will practice and go through the DMV.

Hope all is well!  Julia

Wait, she failed the drivers test?  Isn't drivers test failure one swat per member upon time of first meeting?

 [smiley=nixweiss.gif]  Julia, first of all, I know how physically and emotionally exhausted you are, so I am very sorry to hear that you did not pass.  Did you ask your instructor how many points you failed by, cause I bet it was only one or two.  Can you take the class again in the very immediate future?  I am not a V-Rod rider, but when I have taken experienced rider classes with other V-Rod riders, the S in the box has kicked even folks with a lot of miles under their belts.  It is so much easier with the little 250 cc bikes you had at your disposal at the class.  With what you know now, you would ace the class if you could retake it.

Julia....Don't let this little setback curb your enthusiasm for your bike and riding.  Lot's of folks have failed the test and have gone on to be great and safe riders.  By way of example, I was fortunate enough to watch 2 retired motor cops from NYC fail the DMV test a couple of years ago.  I'm sure that attitude and an overactive mouth regarding 50 combined years of "real world experience" had some influence on the examiner, but both of them failed the "S" in a box as well as executing the emergency stop within the box.  Get out alone and practice, practice, practice and your insecurity about performing with a crowd will become nonexistent.
