Having followed your story since your joining this forum, I think you need to step back and evaluate what you want out of this.
You've failed the licensing test, what now, 8 times? It may be extremely difficult, but cmon, 8 times? You've had 2 accidents now as well, correct? You're not even licensed, yet you are spending time on a rare, once beautiful bike that you are not even licensed to ride to fix it up after it was pristine before you.
I think I can speak for a few people and say that, well, maybe you should come stateside before you pick up riding a sportbike at least. Get a scooter, maybe that will be easier to accomplish.
Fully appreciate your reply, and as for the exam, I have actually talked with everyone else who has passed (went to driving school or converted their license from their country), have watched me ride, have seen me (showing them how I do my test?) and they see no fault and from everyone I have talked to we finally came to the conclusion they are singling me out for not having gone to a driving school and being foreinger (Japan is racist and people don't realize that until they live here I've dealt with my share of it). Aside from that is extremely common situation here in Japan being failed for not going to a school, where the person checking you do the test who are former police, purposely fail you to make you go to a school....which they also work at..... Japan runs the license center as a business not a learning facility I wont go more into detail but please understand Japan is just all about procedure and steps not if you can actually do the test or not. I "skipped" the school in Japan so they see me as not conforming to the steps. I can accept 2 of the fails. Locking up the rear wheel is a no no. I wont comment on the accident or try to defend them, they have happened, thankfully not my fault but they happened. because of the accident ironically, having the bike restored to better then when I got it.
I am licensed in the US and had gotten my international permit unbeknown to me, that it wasnt legal cause of a unclear law. Took MSF as well and practiced a lot even afterward here on my bike. I know I can ride my motorcycle and pass that test, but I cant make them pass me so I just keep going back and doing the same each time "correcting" what tiny things they tell me I did wrong. Im going to pay to take a, I guess its like a "practice exam?", at a driving school instead of paying the $3,000 they charge for the driving school which is only apparently $130 should I not pass it again. I wanna see if I am really TRULY making mistakes during my exam, because when you know you passed the test and they give you a small reason, I qoute "SLIGHTLY too far from the curb and my signal light too early??
" for not passing, its like a red flag waving. Im actually more scared of scooters.
