Mod 1 test

It took me three attempts to pass this module. So I thought I would give some simple advice, which actually is totally obvious to get through it. This note assumes a big bike - 500CC etc. 1. Don't take the module unless you have practised it in the same environment - use a training school that has the space and...

damn swerve test

Just "failed" mod1 twice - once for being 2kph under the 50 on the swerve the first time and the second time I was so focused on getting the speed right through the trap I focussed on the speedo and missed the damn box - doh!!  Booked in again for tomorrow.

Mod 1

Yeah well - seems experiences are varying on this one. I passed first time, both Mod 1 and 2 with no training at all and no practice runs on a version of the Mod 1 lay out, or knowledge of the test routes on Mod 2. 2 minors per module. Not boasting, just want to counter some of the scaremongering about how difficult the new bike test is. I did it on a 125 mind, and now have a 33bhp restricted license, but personally I think that's a wise way to go, as the step up to a bigger bike - I got a 650 Bandit - was a quite a step, and I just don't need the full 80 odd horses at this point, 33 gives me all the speed and acceleration I can handle for now. So, do a bit of research, check the DSA website for the lay out, practice slow control in an empty car park, and get really comfortable out on the roads on your usual learner bike, then take the test on that, my advice, for what it's worth. Only other thing to add, specifically about the swerve exercise, is I had to rev the hell out of the 125 to get it up to speed in the space you're given, having got the pegs downs on the curve! Safe? I dunno, but doable, and fun, actually. Had to use both my chances too - 48 kmh first time, 56 second...
