Motorcycle License
 
So for the past few months, I've been thinking about getting my motorcycle license(one of my friends has been pushing me for the past year, and it's slowly starting to really interest me). So my question is, how do I go about getting my license? Do I take riding classes first? Or do I get some sort of permit first? I have no idea how to go about this.

I guess this question goes out to Minacious or Corpse_Grinder, where in SoCal would you go to take some classes? Any tips?

Thanks for all the help! :D

1. MSF (MSF Info)
2. Gear
3. Starter bike

Once you get that ironed out, on occasion I help a friend teach a riderís course where we go over all of the core dynamics (the basics that when learned will seriously help you in becoming an awesome rider) that make a good rider. Get in touch with me and we will set it up for you to attend one (or more) of the sessions.

Thanks for the info! I'll definitely send you a PM about the rider's course once I get to that stage!

Pfffff a busa is too civil...I was thinking about a turbo'd busa w/ nos as a starter bike. Trust me, I know I'm good enough to handle that :lol:

A girl I know just got a new gixxer 600...as her first bike...I don't know much about bikes yet, but that doesn't really seem like a starter bike.

Great observation - a Gixxer600 is abotu as much of a starter bike as a F599 is a "starter" car...

Sure it is - compared to an Enzo .. realisticly a Suzuki GS500 (or whatever todays equivalent model is) is a great starter bike.

Nimble, relatively light, actually a great starting point for modding and cheap to repair.

Riding well compared to whom and what? I cannot see a first time rider developing proper skills and decent ider behaviours starting out on a CBR600RR... I just can't.
