Go on belmont street in chicago. I bet you guys at least 50% of polaks in there don't have m class and they have been riding for a longgg timeee. Me and my friens went for a ride with them(belmont extreme they are called) and all of the sudden the group stoped and they started bitching at us because my friend did a wheelie and as they said " we just got out of the bar. Some of us are drunk as fuck and we don't wonna get pulled over so either stop doing wheelies or go ride yourself."

I don't think insurance is valid if you don't have a M endorsement. But that chrome is expensive. Better to have that than to pay $80 for a helmet and $10 for a M endorsement.

Wearing the helmet might score some plus points with the tester, even if it's not required.

If he's not used to the lid it might get trickier though what with all the tight slow speed nonsense

...outside of that I totally agree with you.

I thought you were required to have a helmet at all times UNTIL you are licensed with the M endorsement. This would include the time during the test since you haven't got the endorsement yet.

I could be wrong though.

Now I just need to figure out how to do some drunk wheelies on the Electra-Glide

I saw a guy take the test a few weeks ago on a kz400 without a helmet. Then a guy on a 250 dual sport took it, and he railed it.
