Hi everybody i was just wondering how long did u have to wait until you finally got a motorcycle? I guess starting from when you first decided you wanted to ride. Whether it was because of money,time, consent etc. Thanks.

it took be about a year of looking around before i found the perfect bike, or the one that felt best to me.
so look long and hard before you get one.

It took me about a year. Originally I had to wait until I moved out, because my dad wouldn't allow it. But things changed, and I bought my bike in May. :)

Got my class 6 six or seven years ago now and am just now working on buying my first bike in time for the new season. Luckily my wife has never given me grief for wanting to ride, but my ('our' after the wedding) finances was a huge reason for having waited so long.

It took a couple of years to 'chip away' at my parents' entrenchments.

My Dad sold motorcycles when I was young, so I started riding at 11 yrs old!:)

I can't remember a time that I didn't want a motorcycle. Got my first ride on my uncle's minibike when I was 12 and that just made my resolve to get one that much more solid. When I turned 18 and didn't need a parent/guardian's signature to buy a motorcycle, is when I got my first one. So, in reality, it probably took about 13 years to get one, figuring that I was likely around 5 or so when I knew that I wanted one.

I was making stupid money when I came out of highschool so within a few days of deciding I was getting a dirt bike I had one in the basement.
