Today was my second day. Yesterday we just went over the questions that would be on our multiple choice test. Today we were going to do motorcycle exercises on a suzuki 250, then later today we we're going to go back to the classroom for more question review. Tomorrow was supposed to be a full day of motorcycle exercises from 7am to 6pm. I did find up until 3 hours into the course when we had to ride the friction zone, then come around and shift into second, back to first, brake and then stop. I did fine shifting to second but I kept screwing up everything after that. The instructor suggested I take a private lesson ($70 on top of the $350 for the riders course) and then take the riders course again. I can blame the screw up on the extremely hot weather but i've never had any experience on a motorcycle prior to today. I'm still thinking of whether I should take the private lesson and try all over again but I really got discouraged. Better there than on my own in public, though. Anyway, that's my story. I'm ashamed to admit it but it happened. EDIT: Update on pg.4 for those who care.
