It is official, I am now not only the owner of a BMW F 650, but I can say I DRIVE a BMW F 650. Yes, boo ya to your mother, I passed on Saturday morning. For those of you staring at your Luminox watches, or more likely, your calenders, wondering when I was going to succeed in this, you would be correct in checking off an entire years worth of work. I signed up for courses this time last year, but as I was working at chain school for peanuts, I did not have the spare 2000 lying around. (Not that I did this time exactly, but at least I was able to access it over the past 4 months, but this time last year as a new arrival in Deutschland I was PO!) Then we went on our Eastern Europe motorcycle tour, and when we got back I was informed that the school did not offer lessons again until April.
Fast forward to March when I try to get those lessons booked, and the school kept saying no. So I left that school, and signed up with a new school that was only too willing to take my hard earned Euros and book me into classes and required on the bike sessions. (You need 12 on the bike that are required, not counting the unknown amount for compound time for the safety demonstrations), plus then any extra to iron out small details like right before left. This takes place as well when you have time, and your instructor has time, and so April till now was my hardcore time.
I was hoping to be finished last weekend, BUT my instructor was on vacation. Which meant the earliest for my test was yesterday, which also meant that if I failed then we were not leaving Friday for our trip, as we have to wait 2 weeks in between tests.
But I did it!!!!!!!!!!
