So you phaggots want to ride a motorcycle huh?
Well first off you need a way to get licensed ,
The most common way of receiving your license is to take a Motorcycle Safety Foundation class in your local area. It will usually be endorsed by your local DMV and a certificate of completion should be enough to get you your license along with proof of residence.
For the Course a helmet, jeans , a thick jacket, boots and gloves should be enough. I do not recommend splurging on gear before because you either might hate riding or you might not even pass the course and give up.
The beginners licensing course will teach you the basics and up. Last year, I went from not even knowing how to use a manual transmission to driving a motorcycle in one weekend.
Another way is to take your local DMV test, but that will be significantly more stringent.
Now each DMV in every state has different requirements for receiving your license, so make sure to visit your local DMV website for a list of requirements for getting your license.
After receiving your license i recommend watching some of Keith Code's instructional videos
For your first motorcycle, the recommendation is to go with something you won’t twist the throttle and do a back flip on, so i would recommend either a 250cc, a 500cc, Honda 600 f4i, or a Suzuki SV650 . (And before people weigh in saying otherwise, yes i know your uncle Lenny started out on a Hayabusa at 17 years old and rides 1000 miles a day and is still alive all because he is responsible, so everyone else can be too.)
Feel free to get whatever bike you want though, because you will anyways.

I, and many others on this board are major proponents of AGAT (all gear all the time), especially for new riders.
It saved my ass on my first crash, and it can save yours too!
This consists of :
Full face helmet
Boots that provide ankle protection
Jeans or heavier protection Kevlar jeans
