How to U-turn on a Motorcycle
In NJ, you can take a class and get the skills test waived for a license.
I know they fill up fast, and as soon as it is set in stone that I’m getting a bike, I’ll get on a waiting list.
I looked into it, and you can get a permit just by passing a test, and there are two ways to get your license. One is to take a class, be there for every class and pass it, and the other is to take a road test.
Thank you for all of the responses. I looked at the Rebel and the Tu250x, and they’re really standard bikes. Again, not exactly what I’m looking for, but will keep them in mind while looking for a bike. Ask for the GS500, I like it because it is a nice, sleek bike. My friend has one, and I think that it is very well-spoken, but the Ninja250 I find to be more of a “bad-ass” style. (Maybe not “bad-ass” but it’s too “bad-ass” for me.) After looking into it more, however, I found that I do like some of the earlier 2000 models and will continue my search there. My dad is a mechanic (marine, but he can pretty much do anything with any kind of motor), and his best friend (who was taught by my dad) is also a mechanic, and does more with motorcycles since he is a motorcycle enthusiast.
I am more and more thinking that the Ninja 250 is my best bet for my first bike because of price, and every time I ask someone I know who rides, they tell me that for me, the Ninja is the bike I need to get, and again, with the research I’ve done, I’m agreeing with them more and more.
How long do classes go for? How many days usually? In a row? I’m only asking because I want to take a class after I get my permit (soon, I hope) so that I can begin riding with my friend, but I’m never actually in NJ for more than 4-5 days at a time since I work and go to school in NY.
I definitely want to ride. It’s always been in the back of my head to get a bike, and his mom finally got through to me to go and get it done. I’ll look into the MSF course, but being from NJ (NJ License) and living in NY for school/work (trying to keep my job through the summer) will make it difficult for me to take any courses until next summer (or until I officially move here and get my NY license). I’m really just looking into everything right now to make sure I can save up enough money/get all of my research done.
It’s a good question. I’d like to know that as well.
