Beginner Motorcycle Course
This weekend I took the beginning motorcycle course. There's good news and bad news.

The bad news is that out of a group of 10 people, one person failed the knowledge test (and declined taking it again; I don't think English was his first language =\ ) and one person failed the skills test.

The good news is that personally I got -16 out of a possible -20 before failing. Most of that was due to taking too long for the sudden stop (32 feet when the standard was 20 feet). Some of it was to not applying throttle during part of the turning exercise so it looked like I was braking (inadvertently engine braking).

Now I just have to find the time to go to the DMV and get the endorsement on my license. The hard part of that will be doing it with a vehicle that can make it there and back. It's actually closer than the location of the motorcycle course but still far enough to cause trouble just getting there. Well, I have up to a year before the course expires.
