  • Passed in Morley

    Just passed my R-E in morley. Was fortunate enough to get a guy called Grant who was great. His first comment was how big the Hyosung Aquilla GV250 was I was taking it on.

    Made me do 6 consecutive o's in a reasonable street, which went well as I just got my head around shifting my arse to one side and counterbalancing the bike, and being agressive with the back brake to control speed. Once that was sorted, the O's just flowed.

    He stopped at least twice to offer up good advice and chatted freely. He started discussing the WA fatality stats for bikes when we pulled over........not something I was really into hearing on my test but hey, at least he was chatting and never stone walled me.

    Got pinged on a few small items at junctions and not keeping off the oil, but overall was fine. Emergency stop was a little iffy and just in the distance, the GV250 feels shit for stops and he reckoned I 'did enough to satisfy him'. Have to be be careful of the roundabout they make you take at the very end to get into thr test centre as its in the shopping mall and he told me a lot of people fail there as there are pedestrains and shit all over the place.

    I am now enjoying my 'new' VTR250 legally.....feels like a dream compared to the GV250.

                      Hey alpha,

                      Only other thing that comes to mind is when you leave and enter the centre, make sure you use the right exits otherwise its a fail (as my examiner told me before getting back to the centre). He also pulled me over and said he wanted me to stay on the right of the oil more so watch this. I guess the main thing is getting a decent examiner, hopefully Grant as he was a nice bloke with a very good attitude. They say some of the others there are tossers, but who knows....Good luck!

                        In complete darkness we are all the same. It is only our knowledge and wisdom that seperate us. Dont let your eyes deceive you.
                        Its the little things that make the difference

                              Nice work.
                              I think I had Grant, and he was a top bloke when I was doing my test.
