  • I'm infamous!

    I stopped by the dealership where I took the Rider's Edge (MSF) class last year and dropped in the classroom where they were wrapping up. The instructor that I had was there and they LOVE to have former students show up and do a quick talk. When he introduced me, he said "This is the guy that I told you about that dumped the bike when taking the state test on the Buell." Turns out he tells his class about me because I'm the only one who has put the bike down and then come back on his own bike and ace the test.

    I hated the clutch and brake on the Buell. Both were way too touchy for my not so delicate hands. When I did the weave portion, I missed the last cone, got pi$$ed off and hit the gas too hard when making the turn. Then proceeded to hit the brake too much and laid that puppy down. Automatic fail.

    I practiced for the two weeks before the next test on my Sporty. On the day of the test, they asked if anyone had to leave quickly to go to work and then when no one answered, asked for volunteer to go first. I thought that was a great idea and proceeded to ace the test with no points deducted!

    Probably the highlight of my brief riding career.

                        Man, in ohio, if you take the training course you are exempt from taking the state course. Yeah, the buell that i was on had been down several times and the clutch was in bad need of adjustment....also during my final evaluation the damn thing ran out of gas....i got deducted 2 points because i took a turn too slow, I told the teacher the damn thing ran out of gass.....still got deducted...lol

                            Yeah the Buel was tiny,,
                            I had a Kid who had never ridin before, started watchin me,, we wus dragin Hard parts on the course the second day.
                            The Instructors kept rollin their eyes and never once told us to cool It,,we both aced the thang.
                            Had One girl, also never ridin,,droped It two times on day one,,she did fine,,passed.
                            All of her drops where just an Oops,,at almost a dead stop.
                            The Box,,I volunteerd to test first,,the Buel way so tiny I went right to steering lock and throttled It round the figger 8,
                            had 2 or 3 feet to spare,,came back with the sporty,,several times,,always over the line a few inches to a foot,,,odd.
