It all depends on a lot of factors.

It all depends on what you're insuring and you as a driver.

So, I'm willing to say anywhere from $75 a year to a few hundred a month!

But don't ask that ? in here- start a new thread asking- and ask it in a sponsored section (like state farm insurance) TNTEnt (Tuan) is the man for the hookup on bike insurance.

Too many factors on insurance. My ninja 250 was -30/year. Yes, that's a negative. It actually lowered my overall insurance because it gave me a multi bike discount which was more than the insurance on the 250.

Remember that most insurance companies will give you a discount for taking the MSF course also.

Yep, in great detail. But I would suggest you do this before Sept. 1. On Sept. 1, the BRC becomes mandatory. That means most schools are probably going to back up on classes as well as raise all prices to $195.

Somehow I managed to live 33 years without every touching a motorcycle. My Weenie bought one, parked it in my garage and I decided to learn how to ride it. My sis and I took the class at Awesome and it was, well, AWESOME! I was no longer convinced that the bike was trying to kill me. I realized that I control the bike. I'm now an addict and it was worth every single penny to take that course.

Welcome!

Once you take (and pass) the MSF all you have to do is go to your closest DPS office and take the written exam. If I remember correctly it is only about 14 questions all taken directly from the "You and Your Motorcycle" guide. http://www.msf-usa.org/downloads/Riding_Tips.pdf

As long as you have taken MSF there is no riding exam with the officers. You can opt to take the written exam first to get your learners permit but I think you are much better off taking the class before touching a bike.

Good luck!

Wait til after the course to get your bike and gear. You will learn a lot and a 250 may not be the bike for you. You may need a Vespa or even a GSXR. But dont worry one day your nuts will drop and you to can have a Kawi like the big boys.
+1 on Awesome Cycles, especially since they have kawi 250r's to ride for MSF.
