    Not sure if you got your license, but I sent my son to the MSF class last year. I did the same in 2007. It's $20 and takes a weekend. For returning riders, they may offer a shorter class.

    The very first thing you should do is take a Motorcycle Safety Foundation class. It's fun! And more than just not having to take a skills test at the DMV, you'll know for sure if it is something you really want to do. Motorcycling isn't for everyone, and there are a lot of people who thought they'd love it only to spend a bunch of money to find out they don't.

    Great bike.

    Followup: Yep, my Texas DL has the CM endorsement. That is all that is needed. And I strongly urge ALL new riders to take the Motorcycle Safety Foundation's New Riders Course. Stats have proven that those who have passed the MSF course have fewer accidents and are safer riders. Also, check with your insurance carrier as I believe you get a discount on your insurance if you are a MSF graduate. I did.

    I'm sure you have to have an endorsement to ride everywhere in the US. I've had motorcycle endorsements in Texas, Colorado and Oregon.

    Do you mean $200 maybe? I have taken an MSF class twice (once with my sister, because she paid). Cheaper one was like $150.

    The class now given by Harley Davidson ranges from $225-$249 . Friday night , all day Saturday and Sunday . Includes meals , and they provide the motorcycle and helmet if needed . From what research I’ve done here the DPS no longer does the driver test , they do written test only . But it’s all worth it !

    Nope. It was $20 when I took it in 2007, and $20 when my son took it. The class is at community colleges. It runs Friday night, Saturday, and Sunday. Bikes are provided for the beginner class, and nasty helmets too. Maybe the cost varies by state.

    I was never a Harley guy, but I have been wanting to get another bike. I sold my Triumph when I wife got preggers. Didn't expect to be out of the saddle this long.

    I'm not a Harley guy either. I ride a BMW R1200R. My son calls it an old man's bike. Might be some truth there. Any BMW club rally I've been to, I've met 80year old riders.

    My old bike is an older Suzuki Marauder. I rode it down to SC a few years ago and stored it. I haven't been able to ride it for the last 2 years. My son was down there for a month and got it running. My BiL has a bike so they road the back roads. Not sure I can still call that bike mine.
