You don't need your license for the MSF as far as I know.

The best thing about taking the MSF is that you don't have to do the "live" riding text (with a DPS officer following you in a car), just the computer test.

And, those DPS officers will pick you apart when you ride the bike, they love finding errors on your riding.

That is correct.

I took the class, bought my gear and did my license before I even bought my bike.

250 will suit you fine...in relation to cars, its about as quick as a civic. And like a civic, it's not stupid fast where you will get in trouble at your age. The 650 is a lil more powerful, more like a 350z if I had to relate it to a car. Definently not super sport fast (which can be as fast as lambos) but its fast. I am about 260lb and my 1st bike was/is a 650...glad I got it instead of the 250 because I know my weight is slowing down the bike. Like everyone else said, get a 250 used real cheap because you will either drop it and/or get tired of it fast...but DONT SELL IT unless you have a good price from a buyer. Instead, keep it for continued learning as you move up the ladder. I know I plan on keeping my 650 forever should I ever feel like starting all over again

Again, even at your weight, I would start at a 250 only because you have a LOT to learn from cars/bikes at your age. Yes, you will tire of it quickly, but better off starting slow than going too fast and then not learning the proper techniques from the start. A strong foundation in this sport goes a long way

I think that if you are 250lbs then you should get a bigger bike. That 250 won't move with someone of your size on it. Not trying to clown it is just that you have effectively doubled the weight of a bike that isn't that fast to begin with. Try a 600 twin like an SV 650 or that Kawasaki whatever it is.

Wait...you are 16 years old. Dude, if I had a road bike when I was that young I would be dead. You haven't even driven a car on public roads very much. Horrible idea. Get a dirt bike or a sports car and live your life. Take a couple of years getting used to driving on the road first before you go out on a road bike...seriously. You live in Houston, if you lived out in the country it may be a different story.

..and I started on a bike at 15.

Do the 250, it'll still go accelerate faster than anything your used to and go faster than any legal limit on the road. :-)
