This post concludes my short series on motorcycle ownership. Maybe it was helpful, maybe it wasn't. I do feel, that it is a quick representation of some basic key points about what it is to own and ride a motorcycle.
The truth is there isn't anything quite like riding a motorcycle, and as you may have noticed I never attempted to describe the sensation of being behind the wheel of a motorcycle. The feelings of freedom, of power, of connection. No combination of words can do justice to it, and the actual sensation of riding will need to be experienced on a personal basis, which in essence, is the most important thing about it, really. I have offered you a number of things to think about when considering whether or not to enter into motorcycle ownership, but none of them can help you experience it for yourself.
If you are still on the fence about it, take an MSF course. For a weekend of your time and a couple hundred dollars, you'll be able to try out riding for yourself. If you don't like it, move on with your life and don't look back, and chalk up the money spent to trying and learning something new. If you do enjoy it and want to move forward with riding, you'll have a direct means to receiving your M1 license, and will have a pretty decent base from which to start riding.
On behalf of the motorcycle accident lawyers here at RiderzLaw and myself, we wish you the best of luck in what awaits you. Have fun and stay safe.
