That should be a lot of fun. Does your state give out Motorcycle Permits first? If so, you can go ahead and purchase your bike and then ride it as much as you can before the MSF course. That is what I did and I rode with my friends. I don't know how much experience you have, but if you are inclined in going that route the MSF course will be much easier for you.The course provides helmets and motorcycles, but i'll probably just use my own. My dealership gives me 10% off accessories but theres a motorcycle show coming in a month i want to check out first so i can see what kind of deals they have there.

My wife has avoided three accidents based on what she learned in MSF. She followed the lesson instinctively in the real world and have kept it upright in some difficult situations.just remember, at least here, its an intro course, the real learning is when theres cars coming at ya
