Okay, after 2 years of procrastination, I have my learners license. The next step is to get a helmet, which should be easy. The next next step is to get lessons at a motorcycle school. There is a very reputable school here so that's easy. The next next next step is to get a bike. Not so easy. How does one purchase a motorcycle when you can't ride a bike? Would a bike owner even let an experience person test-ride a bike? I don't know anyone that rides (my interests are totally different from my friends) so what's the best course of action?
