If you don't want/can't wear leather riding pants to school/work, I would recommend a pair of kevlar jeans with padding and CE armor in the knees. Check out Rhok jeans. As for insurance, it will vary depending on the company you go with, the type of motorcycle, your age, your driving record, and what you get covered in your plan (liability only, collision, full coverage, medical, ect). Being 17 and young, I'm going to assume it's going to be stupidly higher than what I am paying. Yes, you can get "cheap" insurance aka liability but that only covers you if you get into an accident and you're at fault. The insurance will pay for the other party's damages, but not your damages. Collision pays for damages if you wreck your bike, and comprehensive covers theft, fire, wind, flooding damage. Also, there is a underinsured/not insured coverage where if someone hits you and they don't have insurance or a hit and run, the insurance will cover the damages.

EDIT: ear plugs are for hearing loss prevention from being exposed to engine and wind noise
Thank you. I don't have a uniform requirement at my school, but the "power ranger" look would not fair well either. I could carry around a second back pack with my protective clothing in it and carry my helmet. I'll have to look more into the insurance deal. I PM'd Tuan in the morning, but I haven't received a response yet. I first thought ear plugs would be for protecting against road noise; then I figured it's for something else since the helmet should be doing that.

rush hours are crazy as it is for 4 wheelers (4 wheel vehicles), now a bike surrounded by a trap of cars moving from 0-35 mph on the freeway with half asleep peeps and people upset running late or from being stuck in traffic is just not good for the motorcycling business. I encourage you to take the MSF, get whatever bike that you want as long as you are responsible enough. Do a track day ASAP after. Beater bike is your best 1st bike, you will drop it accidentaly, "we all have".
Good luck. always think safe

PS: avoid rain. -Park it and call a cab or friend for a ride home
Thank you. The bike would be for going to school and back for now, so I can't really avoid traffic. 3 miles each way. The drivers I usually encounter on my way to school are students. There's no freeway in my commute by the way; I wouldn't want to ride on the freeway, anyways, because if something goes wrong, it would end very badly. I'm going to take the MSF this summer. Now, about the beater bike, I'd rather not do that. I take great care of my possessions, and hopefully I never drop it.

Come to the Central Meet next week and introduce yourself!
Thanks. Is there a thread with information about this meet. If it's before May 5, I won't be able to go because I'll be stuck studying for an important exam.

I really want a 300 with ABS. Color wise, I'm not 100% sure. I'm thinking black (matte black would be my number one choice if it existed), I also like the SE white color. I'll have to find a Ninja 300 pic thread to find more colors I'd be interested in.

Abs isn't really there to keep you from launching your . Lol. It's not really a problem you should be concerned with.

I tried getting a quote from him but I didn't give him my SS#. Never got a reply. Shopped around 5 different insurance companies. Best bet is to talk to a local agent to try to get a lower premium. You can do an online quote an see what you'll be paying. Depending on the helmet, it will block some noise, but when you hit the free way it's totally different wind noise. Plus, if you have a loud exhaust on your bike, ear plugs def. help.

P.S. don't worry about what people think about you. Haters gonna hate

It's all been said. Enjoy!

My son is 16, been riding since ~10. He took MSF last summer. After the class a lot of your questions will be answered, so my advice is sign up for MSF as soon as you can and pay attention. Then go buy your bike and gear.

Welcome Kong!

I don't have the experience that much of the guys have but I can tell you this.

- Awsome Cycles MSF is a must have(http://www.motohouston.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=140352)
- I wouldn't worry too much about ABS and all the new fancy new tech on your first bike, you should learn how to handle standard and then decide what's better (Just a thought)
- Have fun & be Safe..............

Well, what about when you get into an "oh " situation where you have to brake hard and make some maneuvers to avoid hitting someone. For those rare times I guess.

Lol. I like the black-out look, so I shouldn't be too distracting wearing all black. Tuan responded, but he hasn't responded back after I have him my info (less my SSN). I see what your talking about now with the ear plugs. I didn't take loud exhausts into account. If I buy a 300, I probably wouldn't upgrade the exhaust system; I can't find any that sound good. I've been spoiled by all the bikes that sound like F1's.

ABS for the peace of mind. I can't go to that meet bc it's on a weekday.

Thanks. Awesome Cycles is too far away, or else I'd go there. Like I said before, I'd prefer to have ABS for those "oh " situations.
