Here in the Uk you have to do compulsory training on small bikes but I see a lot of people in the states get a Fireblade for a first bike is that allowed?
I'm 65 when I got my licence when I was 16 we were limited to a 250 until we passed our test.
Despite that, I struggled to insure a Fireblade because they wanted 2 years no claims to insure a sports bike over 600. I insured a 1200 Bandit no probs.
Bikes are a dangerous place to be.
Ride safe out there and get well soon.
That is correct, here in the U.S. you are free to purchase and ride whatever you like, regardless of age or experience
. Not popular with most folks in the U.K., I know, but we do enjoy our freedoms, at least what we have left
. Getting and paying for insurance, now that is a different situation entirely.
I tried to buy a new Suzuki GS 750 when I was 18, 1 year's insurance premium for full coverage ( required when financing) was damn near as much as the price of the bike. Needless to say, being that I was not a spoiled rich brat, I was working as much as possible, living on my own and putting myself through A&P school while getting very little, if any help from my parents, I settled for a nice used CB 750 my dad found from one of his coworkers for $750, a buck a cc. When I see kids riding new liter bikes what goes through my mind is how the hell can they afford them, must be spoiled...Anyway, hope that answered your question...
P.S. If I didn't catch you back in November,
