Hey, it's me the noobie again. Has anyone taken the Advanced rider course with thier r6? I'm required to do it within 60 days of doing my Brc. Just wondering what to expect and any tips to be ready for it.
It's not the bike that's struggling.Damn that box. I did so bad on my Brc when I did it with my r6. There was another r6 that was there struggling too. It's annoying because I don't have a problem maneuvering the bike when riding on the street. At the course I look like an idiot
If it's the last thing I do, I'm determined to get to the point where I can easily pass the test on my r6. If I'm riding it as my primary motorcycle I think it's messed up that I can't do these basic things easily. That being said I had my Honda CBR 250R available for my license test and passed it with no deductions I guess I can thank the MSF class for preparing me for success.I can finish top 5 in an amateur club race no problem. I coach racers and advanced/expert track riders every weekend. I run a racing school for my TD org and I don't think I could pass the motorcycle license test on an r6. I'm so sure I would put a foot down at some point during the test.
When I got my license I rented a scooter for the test. There's a guy around here who offers a service where he will meet you at the DMV an hour before test time. He has a mini course setup in a lot nearby. He coaches you through it, then you use his scooter for the test itself. $75. Best $75 I've ever spent.
And the people running the test know what he does and give a bit of leniency to the students as well. I would have failed if not for that leniency. There are usually no second chances in the test and I got one.
I was a great rider without any issues on any given day. But the modern sport bike does not like being under 5 mph in a tight circle.
I would explore some of these options.
