What bike did you take your test on....

Mine was a friends CB900F ... I think it was a 1980 or 1981... fast, tall and way too much bike... but hey.. I managed to pass the road test.

It was my buddies first new bike and he stood by the testing area, arms crossed and scowling the whole time!

Fun bike. Bought it second hand, fall of 1972. Had 400 miles and two biffs

by previous owner. She said it was too fast for her.

Rotary valve porting gave good power, but the weight was a big drawback.

'72 Honda CB350 - old, slow, and (relatively) heavy, but reliable.

kept it for many years, and even rode across canada on it the summer after I graduated from high school.

1980 Honda CX500 Custom. Wasn't too hard.

Went later on the practice course with the next bike I had - 1989 Honda Hurricane 1000. Took about 10 tries before I could execute the u-turn on that bike in the proscribed space.

Here is a shot of me actually taking my test. April 2006.
Some sort of Honda 50 CC.

1975 (?) Yamaha RD350 - in yes, 1975, when there was a designation for over 500cc machines. Had to re-take the test on a 650 Special, later.

1989 NX250 borrowed from the Honda dealer I worked at. Perfect bike for the test. A friend of mine bought an NX later on and 15 or 20 people must have borrowed that bike for the test. As far as I know everyone passed.
