Newb here..wanting info!
Hey guys, just wanted to say Hi to everyone first and that these forums look kick ass!!
Anyways, hope people can help me out! I've always been interested in the whole driving thing; I've been wanting to drive since i can remember..then the day i turned 16, I got my license. Then after a year of driving, I got into this autocrossing thing (some of you may know what that is). And now, closing in on my 19th birthday, motorcycles seem really appealing to me! My dad grew up with motorcycles so he is optimistic about this idea. He always tells me the story about how he drove a motorcycle w/o a license while he was still a teen in Japan. He ended up leaving his turning signal on, got pulled over by a cop, and got his privelege taken away for a couple years. Of course, he taught me to go about life the right way from his story.
Anyways, I just want to get as much info as I can/need before I go off doing thing. There's a lot of questions I have in mind, but Ill throw out a general question so you guys can hopefully answer for me!!
I'm a complete newb, the closest thing I've driven to a motorcycle is a snowmobile. Where do I start? I know there are classes around Illinois, and I heard it's free? I'd like info on the course and how I can get my license, etc. This is the info I'm out for. I know there's PLENTY of websites out there with info, but it's too much info sometimes and if someone could put it into basic step by steps, that would be awesome..
Thanks in advance and hope to stick around these forums for a while!!
