    I did my test in the mid 70's on a Yamaha XS2. I wish I had that bike back now.

    There were no such thing as a motorcycle license for the first 10 years I road motorcycles. There was an under 5 brake horse power license you had to get before you had a auto drivers license. When I got home for Viet Nam in 1968, Texas came out with a motorcycle license. My wife was the first in line in the county when Texas came out with a motorcycle license. I took my wife's bike the day I got home and went and got my license. She had made a higher score than me, so I still have not heard the end of that!

    Under 5 brake horsepower license:

    Why not seize the pleasure at once? -- How often is happiness destroyed by preparation, and foolish planning? Just do it. Shut the frunk up and Ride !!!!!!!!!!

    Arkansas only required a written test for my endorsement. I couldn't wait to ride though so I rode to the testing office and parked a loong way from the building. My mistake was riding by the door before parking.

    Here in the Netherlands we needed to pass theory exams for road sign knowledge unless you had your car license. (Which i did) And with that you could start taking lessons riding motorcycle.

    I started out on a Suzuki GS500E. You'd get an intercom system in the helmet and the instructor would guide you through traffic correcting you and showing you how it's done. I took about 20 lessons i think. Each of which included special skills for half of the time spend on the bike. Doing figure eight, emergeny braking, slalom, tight circle turns both ways etc.

    My first was a 1971 Suzuki ST125.

    This time around (32 years later) on a Suzuki 2008 Burgman 400. Other than the written test, I had to go out of the parking lot of the DMV and come back in and park - DONE

    XR650L, I had it geared down for trail riding so it was very easy to keep it in between the lines. Cathy did it on her XT225, that would be a good small bike to take the test on.

    I don't remember having to ride anything ( old ), just a written test maybe. Many years later a guy I worked with borrowed my Virago 920, he couldn't do the circles on his brand new full size Harley.
