An inexperienced rider taking the motorcycle license test on an r6 is nuts. I can see it now: new guy starts to make the turn, goes a bit too slow (or applies too much front brake) and starts to drop the bike, and rolls on the throttle while improperly feathering the clutch ... ouch!

There is no comparison to taking the driving exam with a stick shift instead of an automatic. Do the wrong thing with the stick shift and the worst that should happen is you grind the gears or stall the car.
