ABATE MC Driving Test

Anybody know what the spacing is on the cone weave? I've been practicing in the school parking lot by my house. Would like to set up some cones or something and get an idea of how I'm progressing. I've got 2,500 miles under my belt in the last month, but none of those miles have been between cones. Don't want to show up for my test and lay an egg.

I use Ride Like a Pro book to practice. For cone weave exercise it should be set up at 12 feet apart.

I highly recommend getting this book. It has all required exercises and actual charts for cone set up. You will be more than ready for your road test once you go through it. Google it.

I'm not sure what their spacing is but line spacing in a parking lot is usually a good ballpark. Basically, pretend the edge of each yellow line in a parking spot is a cone. Get to where you can proficiently weave between them! The trick is to keep a good pace and don't be afraid to use your clutch to control speed.
