I took the MSF course 5 or 6 years ago, got my endorsement put on in Tennessee, and then moved three times since then. At some point (don't remember when) I didn't check to see that it had been brought forward, and now I have to go take the road test again (after move #4) here in Louisiana. Fortunately, everyone has been very encouraging that this is the easiest state to pass in, as they generally just make you drive the block or do a lap around the lot. So I rented a scooter to take the test on, since I don't have a bike and didn't want to borrow something that I'd have to learn for a day. I figured it would eliminate a degree of difficulty to not have to shift gears, or run the risk of stalling out at takeoff. Ended up with a scooter rental shop that does a lot of rentals for the testing purposes. They put me on a Genuine Buddy 150 (what the heck is up the name?) that pretty much just sucks. I feel like I'm sitting on a giant hill. I could literally see down into my wife's sunroof on her Mini Cooper. I'm curious if the Ruckus is a lot different than that. Can't imagine most of the guys I've seen posting on here enjoying the kind of thing I have to take the test on.
