Congrats!
I didn't get my M class until about 3 years ago and passed first time.
Aced the written test which took me all of about 2.5 minutes to finish.
The lady behind the counter starting yelling at me as I walked up to the counter. "You're done already! Give me that test!" GOes thru it and goes to her co-worker " Have you ever seen anyone ace the written test?" SHe replies "No". The look this lady gave me was priceless. She totally thought I cheated or something!
During the riding test i did the cones and it really,honestly was a joke. The cones were sooo close together that you would have had to stand on the pegs and constantly feather the clutch going .2mph just to get around them.
The cones were about the length of the wheelbase of the bike if not less, so needless to say I ended up putting my foot down, but ended up passing anyway!

Man that brings back memories - I rode for YEARS without one and after I got a ticket for laying the TLR down, I had to go get it - Passed it like a mofo on the TLR and the guy was amazed that I would even try it on that pig - I think I put my foot down once in the tight cone shit but other than that - Aces!

Congrats bra

I took the test on my buddys old yamaha 750. It barely ran. When I push started the bike during the test after a stall, he told me to park it, I had passed. Sometimes real riding is better than parking lot riding. Congrats on the M!! It took me two tries at it to pass, BTW.

The guy told me to dodge the last two and never put my foot down. he said the foot down is what kills you in points.

thanks guys, the guy there even told me most people just get a 250 to do the test, which is what me and a buddy were gonna do but i figured why not try it anyway this morning.

I was lucky though, they forgot to gimme a score card and he said take a few practice runs while he went inside to get it.. at the cones and the first 2 times through i put my foot down and or couldnt weave it because i went to slow. 3rd and 4th i went faster and flew right through it. f it wasnt for those practice runs i proble wouldnt have passed
