Once you begin riding, fellow riders start nodding towards you on the road. When they see you carrying your helmet or wearing your jacket, they'll say things like, "Hey, what do you ride?" or, when they learn you've just begun riding, "Welcome to the tribe."

A Beginner's Guide to Motorcycles: Training and Getting the License

Provided By: 

Being cool is dangerous. Cigarettes give cancer, juggling fire results in burns, and motorcycles are death-machines. Or at least that's what mom always said. Turns out, getting started in the world of motorcycles isn't that hard or life threatening. Get the essentials for learning to ride and passing the test.

By Doug Wagner

So, you want to buy a motorcycle?

Let's be honest. You want to ride a motorcycle because you think it's cool, right? Don't worry. This isn't where I say, "If you only want to ride a motorcycle because you think it's cool, then that means your head isn't in the right place and you should never get a bike." On the contrary, I'd say a lot of people start riding initially because it's cool.

Once you begin riding, fellow riders start nodding towards you on the road. When they see you carrying your helmet or wearing your jacket, they'll say things like, "Hey, what do you ride?" or, when they learn you've just begun riding, "Welcome to the tribe."

Another appealing aspect of riding is the exclusivity of it. Heck, if most people rode motorcycles, I can almost guarantee you my main mode of transport would be a car (maybe). In the end, the best part of riding is the freedom. I think that's what the nods are for - an acknowledgment of the common understanding of the desire for freedom. Wow, that's deep.

I'll start off by saying I'm not a professional and that this article is to act as a basic primer from one beginning rider to another. I'm not an authority in the motorcycle world and you should definitely do more research before purchasing your new set of wheels.

That being said, you shouldn't just log on to a message board, browse a couple forums, or read an article online (like this one!) and take everything someone says as the gospel truth. A lot of riders are going to be talking from their own unique experiences, so just keep in mind that their stories and observations may or may not apply to you. Some will be providing advice from decades of cruising highways at 85mph on their Harleys. Their 50,000+ miles of riding experience sounds a lot different than advice coming from someone like me with less than a few thousand miles under my belt.

Now that all those disclaimers are out of the way, let's get to it. You should weigh the pros and cons to help decide whether riding motorcycles is right for you. If you're reading this article, I'm assuming you already feel it's something you're interested in, but even if it's not and you're just toying with the idea, that's perfectly fine. Maybe this article will help push you in one direction or the other. The best way to find out, though, is get out and ride! Before the fun part, however, we must talk about the necessary part.

Texas Motorcycle Insurance Regulations

Motorcycle License Requirements:
o get a motorcycle license in Texas, you need to apply in person at a Texas Driver License office. If you're a first-time applicant and under 18 years old, you need to have completed the Motorcycle Safety Course. If it's your first time, congratulations! You can get a motorcycle learner license, which lets you ride your bike as long as a licensed driver 21 years of age or older is riding with you. To get the learner license, you need to be at least 15 years old, and you're limited to 250 cc or less motorbikesso you'll have to wait before you get on that supercharged hog

Minimum Insurance Coverage:
Texas is joining several other states in using technology to make sure everyone in the state has gotten with the program. The TexasSure database matches registered vehicles with auto insurance policy data submitted by Texas insurance carriers. This allows law enforcement agencies to routinely identify people who have vehicles without insurance. Even if you're never pulled over, they can still get you in Texas! All you have to do though, is buy at least the legal minimum, which is very affordable. In Texas, you'll need $25,000 in bodily injury coverage for one person, $50,000 for two persons, and $25,000 in property damage protection.

Helmet Laws:
Until recently, Texas had a “helmet exemption sticker program', which has since been repealed. The law exempted riders from wearing a helmet if they had a valid medical certificate. You will have to wear a helmet if you are under 21 years of age, although it is always recommended that all motorcycle drivers as well as riders wear a helmet at all times.
