Tiered system

As a Libertarian I'm against the idea of further governmental regulations such as a tiered MC licensing system .... however, if such a system were adopted in the US, think of all the cool sub 500 class bikes we would be getting.

A buddy of mine is in Japan and he's riding a really cool Honda VTR 250

I have issues with authority too, but I am all for it here. Seems like it would be a great idea. I don't know why we have it for commercial licenses, but not for over-powered 2 wheel machines of death. That's just back-asswards!

actually i think you have to be 18 (or 21) to get bigger. lets say 21. so even if you were 20 you;d have to start on a 125.

I don't think there should be an age limit, meaning:

start on 125 or 250 as early as 15 years old, but can't get an SS until 18 or 21.(whichever)

But those just starting out and over 21, still need to start on a 125 or 250 and maybe retest (however the you would test them) every year?

Just an idea of what I'm thinking could work.

Hey if you wanna ride a liter bike as your first bike and act dumb, it's your stupidity that got you waxed.

My first street bike was an R6 3 years ago and I did fine.

doesn't really matter. gov't can't even decide on a consistant helmet law much less a tiered license system.

I just want the cool 125 and 250's to come our way. But yeah, in principle I'm against the system.

i'm all for it. it doesn't bother me when stupid people take themselves out(ok, just a little). it does bother me when my insurance goes up. if it would save lives, keep insurance down, and improve the image of the sport, count me in. not to mention how kick some of the little bikes are!!!

im for it.

ya, sub 500cc bikes would be so awesome for taking to the track, plus opening up many more racing class options.

also, the whole experience of owning bikes over the years would be improved, imo. if you hop on a gsxr1000 as a first bike there isnt that much room for improvement. whereas if you start on wicked cbr125rr when your 16 and upgrade every couple years, you will actually know and appreciate what the bigger bikes are for.
