I haven't been able to give onea test ride but i have sat on one and it is comfortable for me but i know about all sportbikes are that size (like around 33 inches high and like 15 or so inches thick) so just can someone recommend a good size? thanks and sorry if it seems like im just talking about random stufff8aw8su wrote:whooo- that's alot of machine! whatever you do be careful for chrissakes....wondering if a Yamaha R6 would be too big for me?

According to this you need to be at least 15 to get an Instructional Permit.
Ahh much thanks for the help and also im just wondering (gonna read the stie in a second) but do u take the MSF course before or after u get the motorcycle license? thanks for answerin budToyuzu wrote:The Kawasaki 500 is an excellent beginner bike. I think you'll like it better than the 250 because it has enough power to keep you interested for a long time. It will cruise at freeway speeds and still have plenty of power left for passing. It's also not too heavy, and looks pretty decent.
As for the MSF and license questions, Most states just use an endorsement on your regular car license. I'm not sure how it would work if you are only going to have the motorcycle license. Check with your local DMV on that one. In California, and many other states, riders under age 18 are actually required to take the MSF course before they can get their license.
You can find your nearest MSF Rider Course at the MSF website: http://www.msf-usa.org/
A 250 dirt bike is not the same as a 250 sport bike.Slap-Bassist531 wrote: also for the 250 i mean ive ridden quite abit of 250 bikes n i mean i know there fast but i also plan to have the bike for like 2-4 years (to then probably get a better bike and hopefully someday a hayabusa) and i wonder would a kawasaki 500 be too big then? is it like twice the power of the 250 ? thanks and dont like flame me or anything im kinda gettin new to the license deal
