Does anyone else here not own a motorcycle?

I signed up to this forum years back thinking about purchasing a bike, up until today I still do not have one. Still in the process of reading and learning as much as I can before I will purchase one. Just wondering if I am the only one here that does not own a bike but post here...

You can watch people ride all day but, your never going to learn until you buy a bike,take the MSF,get all your gear and ride. Good luck man.

if you've been on here that long and do all that reading then surely you have seen a few cheap bikes for sale. are you going to ride or not? and with all that reading, you should know what you want to start with.

if you've got the cash, now is the time to buy! practice a lil bit then get your @$$ out there and go on a group ride! i learned more from the people that i rode with from MH (be careful of the 'know it alls' tho, you'll see quickly who these people are). There are planty of good peeps on here willing to help and to teach. and you may even consider doing a couple of track days - your in somewhat of a controlled environment plus you will have some AWESOM teachers!

good luck




***edit: let me correct my above statement - start with small groups for the group rides. if they get to be too big, it'll be more of a problem than a good thing

get a cheap bike that you can learn on. ins on a used isnt at all bad im 100 a year basic......im sure you can find cheaper, the season is upon us mang what are you waiting for you probably waste as much money as you spend on a bike on something...........

Is it better to have no bike, but WANT to ride, or to own a bike that you never ride????
