Ride the one you know the best.
USE their bike.. JUST on the off chance you dump it during the slow ride portion,, thats what their bikes are for. Plus after riding your wing around for a year testing on their their rebels or nighthawks will seem like a walk in the park
It all depends on YOU, I had to retake my MSF course in 2008 since I lost my card from the original course. The wait list for the course using a provided bike was six months. I took the course on my wing! Not a problem at all, the worst part was walking my wing across the parking lot for one of the exercises! At that time I wish I had one of the smaller bikes. Walking a 800 pound bike in a slight incline in the middle of Aug here in FL is no fun. Again your ability is know only to you. Good luck with the course.Here's a pretty general question. I got my wing a year ago and got my drivers license permit and figured I'd wait to test for the final Motorcycle endorsement after getting acquainted with my bike. It has been a year and I have about 30 days to test for my final endorsement. I have signed up for the Abate beginners course here in Indiana. As I understand, I can use my Goldwing or one supplied by Abate. They seem to be Hondas at about 300cc? I'm thinking I'll use there bike as it most likely will be easier to make the tight turns needed to get your endorsement. By taking the class I don't have to test. They will provide me with somethng I can then take to our BMV for my endorsement. Any thoughts on my Goldwing vs. their supplied bike?
