I dont really have mirrors..
ICBC would likely frown on it, but more relevant is that any motorcycle specific training I've taken, basic or advanced, and anything I've ever read on the subject, will find flaw with your technique. You need to leave space and watch your mirrors, so if someone is about to rear-end you, you have space to use your escape path which you've already picked out.I've been riding motorcycles for over 50 years, so I'm not up to speed on the MST and ICBC. Regardless, I get asked often to be a "sponsor" of new riders, which is a real pain, but I do it anyway. Here's one thing I recommend, but I don't know how it would go over in the road test: When stopping in traffic, I pull right up tight to the car in front to avoid being crushed in a rear-ender. I'm to one side so if I get rear-ended, I get shot through the gap without broken legs. What would the ICBC examiner have to say about stopping like this? (I do a similar move when turning left so I stay in the "shadow" of the car in front, but I'm really just asking about my first question: stopping in traffic.)
Nope...never been on a m.bike.have you done the mst? ride around in a parking lot practice at low speed.. do that test..
if you've been driving for 30 years, you've probably realized how retarded people drive cars and shouldn't really need a course... unless you feel that uncomfortable on a bike.
Only bike I'm currently riding is pedal-powered ;-)What bike are you riding. I think there are some restrictions as well. Watch for black ice. All advice is probably good.
CycleBC advertises that their VStar 250 is perfect for doing the skills test.Where'd you rent the bike from? I thought most places required a certain number of years riding experience before renting.
