Well this is a spin off from another post about taking the MV test on your bike. When I got my permit, I had never ridden a street bike in my life. I bought the bike (Wide Glide), I had the permit a week later and I scheduled my road test for two weeks later. Now originally I planned on taking the test on my bike, but when I talked to a friend who took the test on his Dyna just a few weeks before said he would not take the test on my bike mainly due to raked front end and the forward controls. He did not like the idea of the forwards vs the mids, for stability in the cones and turning. With him telling me this the only thing that had me bothered is the U turn, I really did not want to risk dropping my bike for a stupid tight turn that you can not plant your foot or use your mid pegs to lean on too. So I rented a scooter and I don't regret it. I mean for real, when are you ever going to go through 6 cones and make a sharp U turn that you can not plant your foot and have to stay in a box. Now don't get me wrong, I get what the test is about, but you have to look at the big picture. These test should be more realistic and be done out on real road conditions or at least much wider area to operate in. So for me taking a test on the Scooter and getting my licence was worth it. I am not embarrassed by it, I have talked to many of guys that did the same, they all said the same thing, the test is too tight for a big bike.. So with this said, what did you test with and how did it go??
