Hi all, i was wondering if anyone can answer a few questions i have. My brother is going for his L test, and i told him what to expect. When i told him about doing a u turn and slow slalom without putting the feet down or you get penalty ( in p test) he asked why??? This is a good question i thought. In the real world, why is it important to be able to do these things without touching the ground??? Why is there so much emphasis on not touching the ground at these low speeds? I remember having to ride in a straight line at walking pace, lots of revs on the bike and the rear brake on, without touching the ground. Pointless i think, prematurely wears out clutch, brake and gets the bike hot when your not moving fast. Any one know the answer?? Cheers Galvin.
