You see, I had the opposite neutral problem a lot of people seem to have. My bike seemed to refuse to go into second on command on first try. It was a little Kawi Eliminator 125. I failed the test because I couldn't get it into second gear. I'd pull as hard as I could up with my toes in a solid motion, it'd click, then fall right into neutral. Instructor came over, road the bike around, came back and said 'there's nothing wrong with it, it's you.' Really made me mad at the time because I went through the whole class thinking I had to pass the MSF test to get my permit. I was dead wrong. Got the permit even with failing the final test. Passing gives you full license in Maine. I felt so silly after being mad all day over my own misread of the paperwork.
