Thanks! It went well, weather was crap. Only part I did bad on was went too fast in a park zone, but she (sort of) told me to. She made it clear that it was spring break and that in school zones,ctge 30km/h is NOT in effect. I asked if I could still choose to go 30, she said NO. She will remove points if I go 30 due to impeding the flow of traffic. So at a school, I webt 45 and she rocked points because she said it was a park. Fine, but it was a park AT A SCHOOL that she told me NOT TO SLOW DOWN ON.

Whatevs. Still passed

That's great man!!!

When I did mine it was pouring .... POURINGGGGGGGG with rain .... Highway traffic was about 50km/h and there was zero visibility. First time I had ridden in the rain as well. Did about 20km/h on the exit because we couldn't se anything. My legs were frozen numb afterwords .... Had a very long and hot shower when I got home!

Haha same for me! I did it early November and it was a rainstorm out in poco. Worth it since I passed.

Now that I think about it though it was good in those conditions since I could ride a bit "slower" because I was being cautious due to weather and not get caught off guard by school zones.

MSA Tips and test for you newbies

https://1stgearmotorcycleschool.ca/msa/


Quote:
The Motorcycle Skills Assessment (MSA), The Motorcycle Skills Test (MST), and the Parking Lot Test.
It’s called alot of different things but it all means the same. This is the 2nd step in getting your full motorcycle license. You can take this test at ICBC or with us (providing you take the full Learn to Ride course). The reason for this is test is to ensure you can operate your motorcycle slowly and quickly. Riding a motorcycle slowly is much more difficult than riding quickly. The MSA certainly highlights this fact! Practice of this test is highly recommended but we would say the toughest aspect of this test is the testing environment itself. Everything has to be done consecutively with no retakes.
There are three ways to attempt the MSA
1) Book your appointment with ICBC and use your own bike
2) Take our MSA Prep Lesson
3) Take our full Learn to Ride Course where we can test you at our facility
So what is involved?
The MSA is made up of 4 parts. Part 1 is a Slow ride, stop, Uturn, and slalom. For the slow ride you will need to use your clutch and we recommend to rev the engine and ride your rear brake. This helps with stability. After the slow ride you will stop, wait for instruction. The Uturn can be done several different ways but it must be done within the cones. You will either need to ride the clutch or you can use momentum. It really depends on what kind of motorcycle you’re riding. Remember to look where you want to go! Right after the uturn (without stopping) you will slalom between five cones and stop. This is Part 1.



Part 2 is a left turn from a stop, slow ride, stop, uturn, and slalom. Essentially the same maneuver you just did. The only difference is the left turn. Get momentum, look left and continue into the slow ride without stopping. After the slow ride you will stop, wait for instruction. The Uturn can be done several different ways but it must be done within the cones. You will either need to ride the clutch or you can use momentum. It really depends on what kind of motorcycle you’re riding. Remember to look where you want to go! Right after the uturn (without stopping) you will slalom between five cones and stop.



Part 3 & 4 are exactly the same. You will start with a right turn. Get forward momentum and then look where you want to go. Once you complete the right turn get up to 25kph quickly. No need to shift unless you want to. Slow down before the corner. Take the big turn, looking where you want to go. Straighten out and get back up to 25kph. Hold 25kph and wait for the signal to stop. This is critical! You cannot anticipate the signal to stop. Do not cover the controls. Do not ease off the throttle. Head and eyes up looking straight forward. Once you get the signal come to a complete stop (ensuring you are 1st Gear) smoothly and progressively. Avoid locking up the rear brake, if you do release it immediately. Once you have come to a complete stop, wait for instruction. You will do it all over again. After the second time you have completed the MSA. At this point they will tell you to shut off the bike and they will explain your Pass or Fail.



The most common reasons people fail the MSA is the Uturn and the Quick Stop. The Uturn requires momentum. Do not attempt this at 1-3kph. You need more speed. Once you have the momentum then look where you are going and DO NOT look anywhere else. The Quick Stop is challenging as you have a certain amount of distance to complete it in. Locking up the rear brake increases your stopping distance immensely. It is very important to have a good feel for the motorcycle you’re riding.
Remember to relax. Motorcycle riding is about feel, being too tense will make it more difficult.
Good Luck!

Getting ready for riding season changed the oil yesterday. I don't know if I should change the brake lines to stainless steel or just change the brake fluid

Sad day for me. traded my 01 cbr f4i in white & red for a 2013 black kawi 300 with my coworker. Due to costs/insurance rates I had to give it up or either sell it. I'll really miss that 600cc motor screaming at me. It hauled ass and it was like being strapped onto a rocket ship I rode it back from my place to my coworkers and I could feel the regret already. but hey, i'll make the most out of this 300.

See you guys in may, not quite insured yet!
