I just wanted to air my opinion on the mod 1 test . I took it yesterday and passed with no minors . I`m 41 and have ridden a yammy rxs 100 for a loooong time.
Firstly I want to talk about the myth that the swerve test is putting people in a dangerous situation . When I did mine yesterday , I went through at 51 kph and it was HEAVING it down with rain . I didnt feel at all in danger or feel as if I was being asked to do something that would end up with me being hurt. The swerve test is SAFE ! It`s just a question of control. There are FAR more dangerous situation out on the road . I`m sure most of us come across them every day . I know I do .
Secondly I was to dispel the myth that you can`t do it on a 125. You can , I`m 6` 8" tall and weigh just under 18 st . I did the emergency stop at 54 and the swerve at 51 so to say it`s hard is nonsense . Just give it the beans as you come out of the bend no need to go silly round the bend at all . (ybr 125)
I just wanted to say this for all the people that are reading such garbage on the internet from people who have failed or fallen off due to their own lack of skills . It`s not a hard test and you shouldn't be afraid of the swerve it`s peasy !!!
DONT let your instructor put you in for this test too early . If you have been on a bike only for a week in your life the chances are you will fail. Use your CBT as it`s meant to be used . As a STEP to getting your full licence . Ride for a year and THEN go for the test and you will pass it first time GUARANTEED ! If you dont , then I would suggest you stay on a smaller bike .
Happy riding !!
