I PASSED !!!! I pass my motorcycle license class!!!
Mann.... I was sweating bullets!! But I passed!! YAYY!!!
I took the class here http://georgiamotorcycleriders.com/ I would recommend them to anyone who is interested in learning to ride. I am not just saying that because I passed either. I told my best friend LadyLee after Day 2 that no matter what I was happy I was taking the class.
The purpose of this class in my opinion is to teach you basic riding skills and how to be safe. It provides a nice foundation to build on and an opportunity to get your motorcycle license at the end of the class.
It was a 3 day class.
Day 1 was classroom only.
Day 2 was riding range then classroom.
Day 3 was riding before lunch. After lunch one last riding exercise then riding test followed by the written test.
Day 3 was my favorite because I felt my individual coaching on that day after each run of exercises really helped me. Our coach helped us along each day but Day 3 coaching helped me alot. Lord knows when we were doing our exercises, I made more than my share of mistakes. We were all learning by watching and doing. Some caught on to some things much faster than others. During my test after completing a maneuver that I had trouble with almost everytime during practice ...... Mann I wanted to park my bike and hop off for a dance break that would have included the running man , cabbage patch and the whop !!! LOL!! Yep I was happy and proud!! Our class consisted of 5 men and 3 women. We all passed. We all routed and tried to help each other along the way where we could. I think we all left the class with the realization that we must still do alot of practicing. I for one plan to pracitice riding in my subdivision for awhile after I find me a used bike.
My play brother Kendall stills has his bike and is willing to go riding with me through my neighborhood while I learn. Also I have a very nice neighbor, who rides a Harley and is game for helping me too. I plan on taking my time and getting a little bit more comfortable by practiicing.
So this is only the beginning. Used Bike Shopping here I come!!!
