I rode for a lot of years with a learners permit only. Once I heard they were gonna crack down and MSF was gonna be the only way, I did my road test.

when i started riding there was no motorcycle license and test...except a motorcycle only license you could get when you were 14...
I got my motorcycle license when Texas first came out with them... all i had to do was an obsticle course in the parking lot of the facility and show my old driving license...I can not remember when that was...then i left the state and came back and had to do it again...I have had motorcycle drivers license in Texas, california, Arizona and Washington...back then no one had MSF... you just took the written and demonstrated your ability to ride.. the only state i had to ride on the street for the driving test was the second time in Texas and I think that was in 1971. The others were all obsticle type riding tests. Washington state was the only state that had different class licenses for motorcycles, one for under 650cc and one for over if I remember right, that was back in 1982.

I had alot of friends with bikes who let me ride theirs back in the day. They told me to get it then. I finally got my own bike in 09 2 months after msf was a requirement. I didn't want to spend a weekend and $200 doing that. I finally broke down last year and took the class. It sucked, took up 16 hrs, and cost over $200. I should've listened prior to 09 and got it then.

my wife got her M back before MSF was required, but it was available and seemed to be the easiest way to go... she has had her M for around 13 years now.
She took it as San Jacinto college, can not remember who put it on...

got mine the day after I got my first bike....just so happened to be the day after I was pulled over and handed 4 tickets for a handful of stuff (4 tickets. no insurance, no registration, speeding, and no M class)...everything minus speeding was dropped since I handled it that same day (judges were nicer back in the day?). Cop was even nice enough to drive me home to get a friend with an M endorsement to ride it home....times like that when I miss having a small police jurisdiction.

I can not believe that people are willing to ride so many years on public streets without a motorcycle endorsement. That's the equivalent of driving a car with no license for years.

It was not a big deal in the past. Now days they don't play. No m opens you up to a lot more attitude and trouble from cops.

I rode 20+ years without my M. I was pulled over several times and they just never noticed or didn't care that I didn't have it. When I heard the MSF was going to become mandatory I went down and took the test. Finally riding legit after all those years.
