Just follow them in your friends car or whatever to the DPS, then once you get there they can drive the car and you drive the motorcycle. Give the friend the 100 for the huge inconvenience and it's a done deal.

If he wants to ride bad enough it shouldn't be too hard to pull off.

Yeah, that makes sense...you don't have a motorcycle now, so rush to take the test so you can not ride the bike you don't own.



Save your lawn mowing money as Scoutguy suggested, buy a cheap bike so you won't cry like a when you drop it, and work on your credibility.

Good luck.

Ok i will be the first to offer up a bike. Im still a "kid" and am willing to help out a fellow motorist. I have a 300cc that you could take the test on. There of course would be a contract that both you and your legal guardian would have to sign. Also a few days before the test you could learn on it for an hour or so to make sure your ready.
All that being said the dmv is only open on week days and i would have to take off work.Therefore helping you out needs to be in my wallets best interest. So just to clarify you would be paying for my day off, plus rental fees and the I hate going to the dmv fee(p.i.t.a fee).
So post a number you think is fair. Just fyi a "fair" number is way north of a hundred that someone posted a friend would do it for.

better get a notary bro. no printer paper contract gonna hold up in court, especially if OP injures/maims/kills himself, or others. You could potentially be liable for MILLIONS in damage.

If you are so skilled then why does it need to be a small bike? Why not a bigger cc? You are just limiting your chance of getting a loaner bike.

He probably has not looked up the price of insurance yet on a SS. I made the mistake of buying my 600 at 19 before looking up prices. About 90% of all money i made was going to paying for something bike related insurance being the highest part of that. I just recently got my insurance down to something more reasonable but its still triple what 25+ year olds pay a month/year. Its funny because even though im all for helping other with getting a bike and learning, i also tell a lot of 18 year olds its not really in their best interest to have a bike when ever they ask.

This is why I rode a ninja500 for 4 years lol. 18-22, got my zx6 as a grad present to myself and waited in the 1000's till I was closer to 25. $43/mo FC all day.

19 with a zx6r the lowest i could find full coverage was $364/month. I paid that for a few months then dropped to every thing but collision. Then it was about $250/month. Yolo right
