I just recently got my motorcycle endorsement ( I took a motorcycle safety foundation class, WORTH EVERY SINGLE PENNY! ) and am getting ready to buy my first bike, most likely a ninja 500. Any people here on FC ride a motorcycle? I can honestly say though, to ANYONE seriously considering getting a motorcycle you should get your liscence / endorsement through a local motorcycle safety foundation class. They will teach you how to ride and show you propper technique at the very start.
