Motorcycle Training in the USA?

To all, In america what kind of tests do you have to pass before getting your license? In the UK we have to complete the following: Compulsory Basic Training (CBT) - this is what you need to complete to start riding a motorbike for the first time and it just includes the basics. Expires after two ye...

Thats fair enough what your saying but the bike i ride suits me fine and its not to big to start on. For others its would be, i wouldnt have bought it if i thought that it was 'too big' for me!

If it isnt im not complaining lol my dealer fitted the restrictor so not my problem. Storysunfolding the bike revs way p...

As im only 18 yes i have to have it restricted, but it still has the same torque and acceleration as the full power just not the same revs. This is fine with me and i love it, doesnt bother what you think really as u dont ride it and dont know how it fee...

Power, Ive had alot of people say to me not to get the gixxer 750 as my first large bike, but ive got it now and im so happy with my decision. However i think the busa is abit of a suicide mission and thats coming from me lol. If you want it that bad then go for it, the insurance will be as much as ...

Waylander, Its totally down to personal choice. Which ever one you like most, go for it. Just take them both for a test drive before you make up your mind. My first large bike is a GSXR 750 k7 and its awesome. Just the insurance isnt. Just make sure you feel comfortable on what ever you ride and tak...

Skier, Thanks for the reply, but with all due respect i think you are wrong this time. I have the right attitude to be riding a motorbike of this size or i wouldnt be riding it. Ive had days (not exaggerating!) of discussions with family and friends who have had years of experience and much more wis...

Brackstone - Im not at all worried about my life being cut short, im too young to think about that. The reason i said about my dad having MS is that he doesnt have much longer to live and i want him to see me on it as he used to ride. You have to understand that 2 years ago me and my dad were out on...

Oh and also SV, i plan to go on long trips on her. To places like germany, France, Italy and the Isle of man. This will be finding the best road to ride on and seeing the surrounding picture. Once again, in sure the bike will feel great on long journeys, will just have a 10 min break every couple of...

The stretch of road to hers is a bikers dream :) . I had a good two hours out on her (my bike) today and didn...
