Lately I have been thinking about getting a motorcycle. A sport bike to be more specific. I think it would be fun to hop on and go for a ride on the country roads. Also, it would save plenty of money on fuel. I have decided that I will be buying one, but not right away. With my new job, I should be able to save up moolah pretty fast so I can pay cash for the bike. The bike that I really want is a Kawasaki Ninja 250. I just want something to start on. A 250 will be plenty enough power for me just commuting back and forth from work and school. I plan to shop around and look for good-condition used bikes. And at the end of the summer nearing the fall, if I still do not find what I am looking for, the dealerships will surely be lowering their prices on the later models to make room for the new ones.
I plan to start out by taking the motorcycle exam at the BMV and get my permit. Next, I need to buy some gear as in a helmet, gloves, jacket, and boots that fit over the ankle. Then, sometime this summer I will register to take the BRC (Basic Rider Course) offered by the ABATE group (American Bikers Aimed Towards Education) in Indiana. After I pass the course, which can be completed in one weekend, I will receive the motorcycle endorsement on my driver’s license. It it pretty simple.
I really want a bike badly, and I can not wait. Going the whole summer without one is going to be tough! I would love the adventure and the adrenalin rush! Let’s hope I can find one soon!
Plus this is on my Bucket List!
