So yea, after waiting weeks, I decided to go take my motorcycle license test today.

And I passed! Congrats to me!
Now I'm just waiting to get a good deal on a bike, so I can grab it. That could take months though :( (parent factor involved as well).


On a side note: I've had my car license for almost 3 years now. Any idea why they made me get tested again today? I had to take two tests, one for M1 and for C.

isn't glendale near socal ?

there are some killer deals on bikes out there right now
Yes, that's true. BUT that's where the parent issue comes in :-D
Let's just say I may have to wait till I move out next semester. Until then, I have to work on the convincing part.

I'm 19 and independent, with the exceptions of motorcycles and skydiving. :lol:

And no, I was born and raised in SoCal. If you're referring to Glendale, AZ. Then yea theres one in Cali too.

You are a risk taker! Congrats on passing.Your new or new to you bike is just waiting for you to find it. Did you take the MSF course? If not go get it. More riding time,more fun, and more learning. Maybe even a better idea what bike you want. By then maybe you'll be free to get your bike too.

Not to mention that it'll help with the convincing part too.

Congrats, Vicken.

The MSF factor as I call it, is what gave me permission to get on a bike, not from a parent, but my wife! :lol:

Seriously, Brian's right. motorcycling is dangerous. Mom and Dad will be impressed and more likely to grant your wish if you acknoledge the risk and show your responsability in getting "professional" driver's ed specific to motorcycling. Even go to the Motorcycle Safety Foundation website with them so they can see the steps you are taking for safety.

Responsability is better than sucking up.

I did take the MSF back in August and that's what sparked my love for motorcycles. I've become obsessed ever since.

My parents know about it, but still don't budge on it. They know I'm very responsible, but worry about other drivers out there.

Congratulations and welcome to to the world where 2 wheels can set you free.
It's great.
Try negotiating a future benefit to the parents ( I will be responsible for such and such a duty for such and such a time period --- for a bike now ).
(kinda like "I will gladly pay you tuesday for a hamburger today" ):wink:

Well, as a parent, and as a rider, I can fully understand. And congrats on taking the course and for having the proper attitude.

There are more advanced courses as well. Go for it! Still more time on a bike and hey that'll probably make you more skilled than many of us, including me! Over thirty years now and I'm still learning.

You got to get your Dad on your side. I got my 16-yr old son MSF trained and got a H-D Sportster for him. There was no way he was going to get a sportbike -- that he has to pay for himself and I doubt that's going to happen anytime soon. Take your Dad to a bike show. Take him to 2 bike shows. Work on him to take a MSF class. Get him in your corner. I actually worry more about my now 17-yr old son following too closely to other drivers in his car that I worry about his riding a motorcycle.
