m as in Motorcycle?
I remember when I went and took my written test they had a whole bunch of crap that wasnt in the book and wasnt really common sense stuff. Things like how many motorcycle deaths per year. Well I missed the first one by a point but got it the second time around and aced the actual skills test which I feel is more important

But of course thats in my lovely neck of the woods not a clue about AZ

if they ask if you slow down and go over an obsticle or swerve... you slow and go over. I had questions like what part of the lane should you ride in and fallowing a turn

In Georgia they asked a bunch of street signs. It was an easy test.

BTW, what bike will you be riding? I have an R6

Here in Nebraska they asked odd question like some of you others had to answer. Like how many riders were killed due to drinking and driving etc. Oh and stay to inside of curves because debri will gather on outside lane from side of road. I see one of you guys has an R6, my brother has an 03 some kind of special edition R6. Here's my ride, 09 suzuki m90

Haven't bought one yet but I'm thinking about a 2500 budget. Hoping to get a older cbr 600 but probably going with something else due to budget

I got my motorcycle license 3 years ago on a 70's honda 125cc. I'm looking to get back into riding, but I want something small in the 250-500cc range and not a crotch rocket... I tried one of them once... Not a big fan. although it could have been that about 1500 rpm on the honda was about 6000 rpm on the CR and it went up to over 14k rpm. Just my estimate from angle of twisting the throttle.

The R6 is a great bike. You could get the 03 and up in your price range. That year model and above are fuel injected and are easy to work on. I bought mine new 3 years ago and have 30k in miles on it. Mileage is not a problem but wouldn't buy one used as a track bike.

Big question: ever ridden before?

Well I wouldn't ride close to the inside either because stuff collects there too. The correct way of riding by yourself is slightly to the left or right of the middle. Oil dripping and other stuff could be present in the center of the road causing problems.

Good Luck

I took/passed my motorcycle test in 1981 at age 16 in Oh. Something to think about when taking the driving portion- use the most familiar bike available with the smallest cc as these generally provide the greatest manuverability.
As far as bike choice-I've literally had them all and currently drive a Honda VTX 1300 retro. I bought it new in 03' and it is the best bike I've ever owned by far. With your budget, I would look at a used 750 but no greater than a 1100 for your first. The Honda Shadow is a great bike for beginners. You should be able to find something with decent miles (under 10K) in your range. Good luck my friend.

Take a MSF Course. (Motorcycle Safety Foundation). Its worth every penny you spend. (If you're military it's required, and free if you go through your safety officer.) I took the course after riding for four years, and the things I learned kept me from having a wreck that following weekend. Highly recommended.

The MSF courses are well worth it! Even if you can pass the test without it, it's still worth it for the knowledge. And it's worth it for the good stuff they do for all us organ donors.

I got mine in 1982 {gawd, but I date myself}. I was on the road course with three other drivers - when the trooper tells you to take the course " as slow as you can safely", do it. I passed - I stayed in the lines, passed my test, and the older guys (all guys at this test) failed. Relax, take your time, Do Not Lay It Down. You'll be fine

Good luck!!!!

yeah i havent known anybody to have a problem takin the written test but have known a few to not do so well on the road part. here by me the local college has a safety course you can take and get your license and you get a 10% discount on ins.in my opinion the test is very easy but there is usually a trick question or 2 so read carefully. here is my ride..... shovels rule

This is what you need.

But it's SIGNIFICANTLY beyond the $2500 range. I have more than that in the front legs alone. (Ohlins is some expensive suspension....)

I haven't owned a motorcycle since I had an scary accident on mine back in 1971 or 1972... slid out pretty bad on a fast curve when I hit an oil patch on the road. But I kept my 'M' active all these years, I dream of someday buying an old HD Softail Fatboy to cruise the backroads with.

It's an '02. It was stock for the first 6 days of its life. After that, it's been a mod-fest. I bought it new in Fort Lauderdale, tore it apart within a week to install a Stage 2 cam/titanium valve job. New injectors, carbon fiber airbox, blah, blah, blah. I bought a set of race plastics for it and ran it on countless track-days at both Miami-Homestead Speedway and Moroso Speedway. Took 2 different race classes, Penguin Racing School and Keith Code's California Superbike school (they do a traveling school in south Florida once a year.....at least they did when I was living in the Keys). I've spent WAY more than I'll ever get for it. I've got almost $3500 in the suspension alone. I could part it out, but don't want to go through the hassle. I've already sold all my race plastics and my tire warmers and my race take-offs to a fellow tracker. All that's left is the bike itself and the race stand. It's paid for, and I'm not really needing to sell it. Just wanting to test the waters, so to speak....

You don't want a bike like this anyway. It's a 200 mph hyperbike. It's built for the track. It's street-legal (in the current configuration), but it's a bear on the street. It's a solo rider only, so picking up the ladies for a ride is out. Plus, it's really uncomfortable for long rides now, especially with the rearsets I'm running on it. Get her on a track and you won't stop grinning though!! That's where she really shines!!

So is 600cc too much for a starter? ( my dirtbike is 250 2 stroke)

I figure once learning to ride it I will never ever need anything bigger than 600. Those liter bikes are crazy

I live in an area without much traffic away from the city so ill be practicing there around in empty parking lots etc.


Does it help having rode a dirtbike before going to street?

So you want to buy a sportbike as your first bike and have questions.

And having ridden a dirtbike will help...but there is still a serious transition to make. There were four people in my MSF course...I was the only one who did not go down. One of them had been riding a dirt bike for 6 months.

And seriously, the MSF course is gold...I don't know anyone who's taken it and regretted it...regardless of what it costs in your state.

Good luck!

Oh, and you might look into the Ninja 500's. They're a bit dated in looks department, but should keep you satisfied for awhile without getting you in over your head. Plus they are cheap to find.

Good advice. Planning on the course here its 230$ fyi. Looking at the ninja 500 there are some pretty cheap ones out there! So is a ninja 500 going to be a lot easier to learn on then a r6?

Suzuki GS500 is a nice starter sport bike. Basically the same as a Ninja 500.

Keep in mind that there's been a huge war in motorcycle performance and displacement. When I was a kid, a 350 cc bike was midrange. The 800cc harleys were monsters.

When Jerry had his accident in 1971, the Beach boys were singing about the joys of a little 125 motorbike.

15 years ago, the 600 cc class was THE performance class, and now a lot of kids want liter bikes as starters!

Just remember that you don't need to prove anything to anybody when it comes to your motorcycle.
