  1. Whupped

    General Motorcycle Discussion
    For the last year or so, been scrimping and saving enough pennies to get into biking. With a sufficient store of funds to cover the basic accessories and a starter bike, I took the temp test at BMV, and signed up for the Basic Rider Course. Three days, one in classroom, two in a parking lot...

  3. New From VA, Interested in Riding

    New Member Introductions
    Hey Guys, I live in Central Virginia and am looking at getting my motorcycle endorsement for my license. I've wanted a Suzuki GSX-R600 for many many years, but I realize that's something that will come with time and experience on a bike and should not be a first bike. To get the motorcycle...

  5. Taking the MSF Class if you live in Hawaii...

    First Bike / New Rider
    Aloha Everyone, I'm a new rider and I thought I'd share the flip side of living on the beautiful, but remote Pacific island of Kauai..we've got no MSF classes here! Never has been even one. In order to take the class I must fly over to Oahu and stay in a hotel for at least 2 nights...so add...
  6. My Massachusetts MSF BRC Experience

    First Bike / New Rider
    I recently completed my MSF BRC here in Massachusetts and thought I would do a (not-so) quick write-up to help new riders looking to take the course in MA. As you read this article, keep in mind that I had never ridden a motorcycle before I took this class so this write-up is simply to document...
  7. Trial by fire.

    First Bike / New Rider
    Yesterday I got the new tags for my first (pre-dropped) beginner bike. After getting the tags on, I went for a nice ride in the country, puttering along at the 30 mph speed limit. Sure enough some yuppie in a really big SUV caught up to me from behind on a straight stretch, getting almost...
  8. Shoes for MSF course

    First Bike / New Rider
    Obviously "over the ankle" is what the MSF people require to take the course. I'm not against getting riding boots, I just don't want to invest in a pair then find out I don't like riding and take a loss on a pair (already strapped for cash as it is) What kind of shoe/boot (other than a riding...
  9. Where to buy a larger size helmet?

    First Bike / New Rider
    I need a larger size helmet for my big melon head. It's 64cm around which is a size XXXL for most brands I think. I priced some at my local Harley Dealer but their prices were extremely high. Is there any other source for helmets that I can check out. I found a few online but there is the...
  10. MSF class - how much experience is necessary?

    General Motorcycle Discussion
    I'm going to register for the beginner MSF class soon with a friend. But I don't even know how to drive a manual transmission car, let alone understand how to drive a motorcycle. Am I going to be ok? Or should I study up before I get to class? I'm really excited and nervous about the class...
