if you can ride good on a dirtbike, then you can handle a streetbike with ease...but man, you gotta ride deffensively AND offensively, cause people WILL RUN YOU OVER!!!! if you have really never riden before, then take Bill's advise and pay for a good motorcycle course, it will probably save your life....

one thing i forgot to mention is once you finish a MSF class they issue you your license on the spot, no going to mvd and taking the test... i took it about 2 years ago and you do not need a motorcycle to take it... just a helmet, gloves and boots.

Hey, that's good info. I wouldn't have thought of that. I also heard that if i take a Moto Safety Course that my insurance is cheaper. Thanks all.

p.s. I'm one of the most defensive drivers you'll ever meet, in any vehicle i drive. I'm always spotting things before they happen and read the cars that are 2 or 3 spots in front of me. So i think i'd be a great defensive moto driver too. Can't wait.
