You can get motorcycle insurance with a suspended license? I'm going to call BS on that one.

Do you riders without insurance think you are welfare? I hope not. Go get insurance and quit endangering the public or park your bike/car until you can afford the insurance. There is public transportation and non-powered vehicles.
I have no class M, no registration, no plates, no . What I do have is a bike that's mechanically sound, Helmet gloves and jacket, and insurance. It's not like I wrote down all the laws on a spinner and gave it a whirl just to pick one to cooperate with-

its because a sportbike naturally makes you want to go fast. When you go fast, you're more likely to crash into somebody. Its a reality we all live with and accept. You are effectively riding a MISSILE, only difference is you're trying not to hit . But if you do, you probably won't be able to fork over the cash to unfuck your mistake.

That's why insurance is just as important as gear, if not more. Ride with no gear, by all means- you're only killing yourself.

Ride without insurance, and you might end up seriously over some poor just trying to get home to see the nagging wife and crying kids, or going around the corner to get a pack of smokes from the store, whatever.

Point is- most passenger cars these days are built to withstand impact before anything else (except fuel efficiency maybe fkn green-movement) but they don't fix themselves. Kill a man's car and you may as well kill him cuz if he can't get to work, the wife will only nag more and the kids will starve. That's assuming you don't kill him too- a bike moving fast enuff can rip through a car like wet toilet paper.
