    What's the word on Mrs. Vulpes' progress on her moto testing and licensure, @Vulpes?? I've been a bit out of touch on the forum and have been wondering how she's doing.

    Well, the vehicle control test was postponed due to red tape - that's now going to be next monday. Lessons are going well, and last Sunday we were a bit naughty and rode to a nearby industrial estate for some practice on her own bike. She initially had to get used to the throttle response on the striple, but adapted really quickly. So in effect we had our first ride-out together!
    It was good to have the intercom - excellent for giving instructions.

    Too bad the vehicle control test was postponed, Vulpes, but perhaps it's a blessing in disguise from the sounds of what the two of you are doing! I think it's great that you had your first ride-out together and that the intercom worked well, too. Thanks for keeping us posted. My best to Mrs. Vulpes. Looking forward to a photo of her aboard that smart-looking Street Triple, too. :blush::heart:

    Mrs Vulpes passed the vehicle control test with flying colours today. I felt very sorry for her as she had to take it in the pouring rain.. But hey-ho, she executed the test flawlessly. Road test next...

    Wahoooo! Congratulations to Mrs. Vulpes! That's terrific news. And that she passed her test in pouring rain is a testament to her motivation and fortitude. Please tell her I think it would be great it she'd join the forum and add another woman to the "family". I'm eager to hear about her certification/licensing adventures from her perspective and also to her future ride adventures! :):heart:

    Has Mrs. Vulpes taken (and passed!) her road test yet, @Vulpes?? My but it seems you all have a lot of various tests to take for motorcycle licensure! In the U.S. there's a written test and a riding test and that's it. Well, I guess there's also a vision test of sorts at the MVD (Motor Vehicle Division) when you go in to get your motorcycle endorsement on the back of your driver's license. :joy:

    I do hope that she's done or nearly done with the licensure/certification process soon. We're looking forward to seeing more photos of her Street Triple and perhaps even a pic or two of her on her bike. And some ride reports, too! :)

    @Sandi T mrs Vulpes hasn't taken her road test yet - that's booked for August 3rd. She is still taking lessons, and that's apparently going really well. I'll keep you posted, thanks for asking!

    Thanks for the update, @Vulpes. I'm glad to read that Mrs. V's lessons are going well. August 3rd is just around the corner so I'll be looking forward to the news about her road test. Based on her "naughty" rideouts with you and your Speedy plus lessons, I'll be betting she passes with flying colors! Please give her my best.

    It sounds an aweful lot easier than here in the UK @Sandi T . However your term "get your motorcycle endorsement" has completely different meaning here in the UK :):);)
