Start small so you can go big later. Or, start big and maybe not have a later.

Welcome!

And good luck! You seem like you're doing the right thing taking MSF and starting on the 250! The '08 for that price is great! As long as it's in decent shape when you're ready for something bigger, you'll get most of your money back!

I agree to above- take a truck to pick up the bike. You shouldn't be on the road with no insurance and no license- regardless of whether the dealership lets you.

If they offer this, then, yes, I do think they will deliver. It's their responsibility until they unload it. Then it's yours. You could always CALL them and ask.

so would it be possible for me to walk out with the bike if im paying full cash?
I also agree on getting a used Ninja 250. By the way I moved from El Paso to Houston...!!!

I've bought two bikes without an M license. I had insurance both times, but wasn't asked either time by a salesman to see it. One was financed, one was paid in cash. I rode off of the lot both times and both were reputable Houston area dealers.

This wasn't one of them, but I know you can ride a paid-for bike off of the lot from Stubbs SW w/o license or insurance.

There is one more thing to consider. You can NOT do a title change unless you have insurance.

when I bought my Ninja 500 brand new. I didn't have my license or insurance. When your plates come in you'll need to show license and insurance then, but the usually takes a couple of weeks. Good luck! oh yeah the dealer delivered the bike also.
