Took the test this morning, and passed.
Good thing I practiced in an empty school parking lot last night. I had no idea how much room the DMV would give me, so I practiced tigher and tighter figure eights until I was satisfied. I also practiced panic stops, and did some swerving/accident avoidance manuevers.
They give you a 24' box to do three consecutive figure eights, and you may not put a foot down.
Man, that 24' box on the DMV lot looked small! I actually lost count of how many figure eights I did
, and had to ask the DMV guy while I was turning. I also had to demonstrate the controls, make a left-hand turn, and accelerate while making at least one gear change.
Overall, no biggy, but I have been riding for almost 30 years, and this is not my first motorcycle licence.
BTW, I highly recommend practicing as I did last night. It does wonders for your confidence. I also occasionaly practice panic stops on deserted roads at more "normal" rates of speed.
