Go to this site, http://hawaii.gov/dot/highways/hwy-v/mvso.htm
click on the link the link, “Motorcycle Operator Manual (pdf file)”
download, print, and study
take the multiple guess test at dmv, pass/fail

I would highly suggest taking the msf class such as the one offered at Leeward Community College. Military bases also have a similar program if eligible.
http://www.leeward.hawaii.edu/ocewd/
click on “motorcycle training.”

I second the MSF class. I've seen way too many friends "learn from friends who ride" go down because of bad instructions or egos. Plus, the class gives you a 15% off insurance premiums.

The test is pretty much like getting your driver's permit. The test will have questions taken from the motorcycle operator manual.

I think 6 wrong was the max to pass.

Haha, just rub it in why don't you. Its ok because the bike money went into the SR. I still need to repay you.

You still need a permit before getting a license. So if you take the MSF course and pass, you would still need to obtain a permit before switching to your license. I think you can do both on the same day if you have the waver.

You don't need to take the road test if you pass the MSF course, right? Pass MSF, take the written test and you can get your license?

Highly recommend the MSF course. You get great guidance that you can even apply to driving your car, not just the motorcycle.

And %15 off on insurance?..wow, I only got %10 off from Progressive.

Yes, if you take the motorcycle safety course offered at LCC and pass, you will get a waiver that allows you to add the motorcycle endorsement onto your driver's license. You will just need to obtain a motorcycle permit first though (I suppose to show that you understand the rules of the road).

Generally you can save anywhere between 10-15% depending on who your insurer is.

the lcc m/c classes usually fill up quickly.

might want to borrow rob's helmet for class if you don't have your own already.

the lcc class has used helmets but i wouldn't recommend wearing any of them.

so how did it go?

I am considering a bike now. Riding the bus is great and all, but working late...sometimes I would just like to zip out of the building and home than wait for the bus in d-town at night.

I was reading Two wheels comments to start small and go with a 250 Ninja. I do like the 600 and 750 bikes, but at the same time knowing me....its better I learn how to ride.

Ninja 250 is a good choice to start with. Make sure you buy a good used one so you don't lose money on the depreciation when you resell and move up to a bigger bike.

Thanks. I dont plan on getting one soon. At present I dont have a secure place to store the bike.

But it was something I always wanted to try and would make sense for me in my commute to/from work. Beats taking the bus, except when its raining.

the 250 ninja is a good starter bike if you have to have a sportbike. dunno if they still make the Rebel 250, but that was another popular starter bike.

the EX500 twin was another popular bike for larger individuals. the twin was a fairly torquey motor, but not overkill for learners

knew a bunch of guys that tried to learn on GSX-R 750s (mostly the first gen) and most of them had some pretty interesting experiences. they thought they were above learning on a starter bike, and went straight for what they wanted. if they survived long enough to get proficient, they could then enjoy more of the potential of their bikes.

I loved my Ninja EX250. Slow as fuk, but can keep up in the twisties. Just watch out for the pegs and the exhaust, they tend to scrape even before you start knee dragging. 70mpg ftmfw.
