That's what I did. I actually took the course twice to get more comfortable in the low speed maneuvers. I still find myself overthinking right turns from a stop but get a little better with every ride. I had taken the PA riding test and butchered the cones I was so nervous on my new bike. Everything else was smooth as butter.Appreciate the check-in. I've been practicing almost daily - there's a nice big parking lot behind the local middle school that is completely obstructed from view from the road, so I can feel confident no one is watching. I'm wondering how far apart the lines are on the actual test at the NH DMV - if it's two parking spaces wide I'm in trouble, as the best I've gotten so far is maybe 2.5 spaces wide. I do sort of wish I had a bike that had a lower center of gravity and mid-controls. Although I can reach the ground flat-footed just fine, I feel like this bike is taller than others I've sat on with regard to center of gravity. Of course, my saving grace is that the week after my scheduled DMV test, I'm set to take the MSF Basic Rider Course near me, so if I fail the DMV test, I'll have a shot to pass via certificate from the course, which is done on much smaller bikes that will help build my skills and confidence.
