I sat on one and it is bloody massive. I'd love to take one out for a test ride (or a Goldwing) just for shits and giggles. Honda did a great job with the ST1300, which is by no means a small motorcycle and the Goldwing is their flagship. I expect it to surprise me.
So, I'm having trouble getting my M license in this great state of Texas again.
As you might have heard me rant about, I let my license expire. It was only after three trips to the DPS that I was able to get my driver's license back.
I took my Basic Rider's Course in New York in college. I lost my certificate ages ago. I called them up; they won't reissue certificates after two years.
I called up Total Rider in Texas. They told me that the only way to get an M license in Texas is to take a BRC course. Because DPS doesn't do motorcycle testing on their own.
The course costs $230.
Does DPS do their own motorcycle testing? Do I have to take the damned BRC again and waste my money on stuff I've known about since college? I'd love to take the Advanced course, but obviously I can't do that just to get my license back.
Could you sign up for the advanced training and have that count? At least then you are getting more advanced instruction. Even with years of riding I found the advanced MSF class to be a nice refresher and a way to put some polish on my skills.
