I passed on my first try with an F4. I'd been riding for a little over a year at that point though. I got my permit the first time and let it expire (why I couldn't find time to get the endorsement within the first year I don't know), so I had to get my permit again and wait 30 more days.
The instructor said that any production bike was capable of completing the course with a perfect score. He said the bike cops had to take this same test from time to time on their Harley's and not one of them could get less than a perfect score.
That being said, he didn't have anyone actually do it and prove it to us, so it may have been
about the perfect score thing, but I do believe that any bike could pass the test in Indiana at least.
The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all of fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomanical, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully. - Richard Dawkins, The God Delusion
