yup...what he said. though i think you will have to buy the bike first, then get insurance, cause to get a policy you need the VIN # off of the bike. sounds like you allready ahve the bike though.

and 90 % of motorcycle deaths are people who are self taught, or taught by friends/family...........

and officially you cannot ride the bike by yourself (w/ only a permit) to DPS toget your license, a licensed rider has to keep you in sight all the way to teh DPS. you also have to have a car for the DPS officer to follow you/bike around in, honking the horn for turns and stops..........PITA

no time for the course...hmmm...well in that case...

yeah, like he said. go buy a busa. put a nitro kit on it. and you know what, dont bother with a helmet either, or any gear for that matter.

i also stongly suggest you try to pop wheelies while going into oncoming traffic. it helps if you just keep your eyes closed. plus it looks cool.

in fact...why even bother with the liscence. your not going to live long enough to get pulled over anyways. have fun

but sarcasm aside, if you want help from here, you need to understand that MSF is the way to go, and blowing off doing things the right way is not going to make you any freinds.

i already know the main safety rules on a bike:
1. if looks like some1 is gonna hit u, u move!
2. if light is yellow about to turn red, you twist throttly back and haul through it.
3. at stop signs w/ the white border around them... you are not obligated to stop, so just roll on the throttle, and ride a wheelie straight through that .
4. dont worry about speed limits cause the cops cant catch you n e ways...

im sure theres more but jus cant think of em all now...



but for real yall... i wouldnt mind taking the course if i could fit it around my full time job, and full time school... maybe take the class during summer er somthing.. i just cant afford to miss school. and i want to get a license ASAP so no more trouble w/ the law...
btw... i was j/k in the top text!

fat trey
