Hey everyone,

I'm fairly new to the forum and I just wanted to tell you all about my new bike.

I just had my lime green Ninja 250 delivered that I bought from Tony's Cycles in Austin, Texas. I don't have my gear yet, so I have only gone around in circles in my driveway. This bike rocks!

This is my first bike and I'm going to use it as a learning tool. After I get sick of it, ill move up to a 600 class.

Just thought id share...

Welcome to SBW!
Congrtatulations on the purchase of you Green Machine. I strongly advise that you get that gear before you hit the street on you ride. You never know when someone will turn their truck in front of you.

Almost forgot about the license part! Do I have to take my bike in a trailer to the DPS office for the riding test? What all do they have you do?

I've taken the msf course already, so I have somewhat of a clue what I'm doing on a bike (a veteran rider would probably disagree!).

As long as you have your learners permit, you should be able to ride alongside someone else to get to the test. I gave a friend a ride on his bike to the DMV once as well. But that was in NJ. Check what the local laws require. Good luck....

Don't try to keep up with my life, you'll only get hurt.

I believe according to the law you can't ride your bike to the DMV. But in real life noone cares, here you just ride your bike up there and take the written test, then they ask you if you rode your bike there, when you tell them yes they say go ride to the end of the block and back while they watch from inside. Come back and poof, got your endorsment.

Although I believe if you took the MSF then sometimes that counts as your riding test, so you only have to take the written test for a license. This might depend on the state.

I've had my bike just over a week, I am taking MSF the 25th-27th. After that I can get my license, then I can get insurance, THEN I can go pay taxes and get the bike registered. Ugh damn laws!!
