    It's for *beginners.* That means any result is significant.

    LOL! You probably can't split lanes with a sidecar, either!

    Now why would MSF lobby California and only California to do that when
    in every other state where they've lobbied for a test change they have
    been lobbying for the test described here

    Nah, probably has more to do with the direction of rotation of your
    brain cells!

    LOL!

    I had a 69 BSA Rocket III and a Honda CX500 st the same time. My left
    big toe still cringes at the memory of trying to upshift the Honda's
    brake pedal.
    OWW!
    Not to mention downshifting it...

    Might be a good way to get rid of the mother-in-law.

    Why would anyone repeat the BRC instead of taking the ERC?

    Probably not. You're going at constant speed, so whatever torque effect
    there is is constant. It's more likely what ice skaters call the
    preferred direction of spin: everybody has a direction they are
    naturally better at turning or spinning in. It's related to handedness.

  10. Interesting! I thought he had us there; that was close; but if you don't
    need an M1 endorsement; then you don't need to take the riding test; and if
    you don't need to take the riding test; then it doesn't apply.

    I'm not sure if I'm jumping in the middle of the thread but one reason
    you'd need to repeat the BRC is if your out of state license expired and
    you had to get a new motorcycle license.

    At least in California, you can not apply the ERC for licensing even if you
    passed with 20 out of 20. You still have to take the BRC or the keyhole.

    Why? It's all about money. Nothing to do with logic. Or safety. Or reason.

    And you have to do this more than once in a lifetime? If so really
    should check your mail more often. If your out of state license
    expired then having to take the test or the class is your own damned
    fault for letting your license expire.
    So? That's not reason to repeat the BRC over and over again with such
    regularity that you can compare content from year to year. And what's
    your objection to practicing the keyhole until you can do it
    adequately? Oh, I know, it's so hard that a circus performer couldn't
    pass it on a unicycle.
    So tell us, if that is so, why is it that the MSF has in California
    and _only_ in California lobbied to have this supposedly impossible
    keyhole test implemented and in the other 29 states and several
    nations in which they have succesfully lobbied to have their test
    implemented it was the MOST or Alternate MOST they wanted?
