The second classroom session was longer than I thought it was going to be, but still very informative. We went through the book answering questions as a class, and then had the test. It was super easy if you paid attention, I scored 100 and am pretty sure everyone else did well also.
The second riding range was INTENSE. There were up to three times as many instructors on the course, because there were new instructors there getting trained and helping out. They basically went through everything you did with a fine toothed comb and let you make adjustments until you got it right. I wouldn't say it was hard, but was definitely more challenging than last time.
The instructors' exercises this time focused on real world situations such as:
getting on an on-ramp
making U-turns (the hardest one for me because it's low speed maneuvering)
driving over obstacles
Many of us were under the impression that all of the instructors that were evaluating us were also grading us, but we found out later that the test was the last 45 minutes of class. Once again, not extremely difficult, but some of it was indeed challenging to this first timer.
The test went through the cornering/acceleration, lane changing, and U-turn. It went by pretty fast, and while I don't think I scored as well as I did on the written test, we all passed.
If anyone finds this blog useful, and wants my book from class, let me know. When I Googled the CCRI Motorcycle class and saw that there were no detailed descriptions on what exactly to expect, I figured I would write one about my experience. I hope it helps.
