I want to take a motorcycle safety course so I can get my motorcycle license. The courses are too expensive for me. Are there any programs for low income people to get a fee waiver or a class are a reduced price?

Motorcycling comes at a cost. Besides the price of the safety course, there's all the costs associated with getting a motorcycle, maintaining it, purchasing safety gear, fuel, and more. You may consider contacting your local motorcycle safety course and inquire about becoming a range aid. The requirements are pretty simple, you just need to be able to place cones in designated locations on the course in a timely manner, push a broom once in a while, and fill out basic paperwork. You'll make some money and will learn a lot just from observing others learn to ride. They may even let you take a class for free or a reduced fee once you begin working for the organization.

Best investment, other than a good bike. The only difference is that I was required to provide my own helmet to take the class. That was in September 2013. I've gotten more than 2,000 miles under my belt now and have graduated to a cruiser class bike. LOVE TO RIDE!

Excellent article with lots of good advice for someone (male or female) wanting to learn to ride correctly. I'm a former H-D Riding Academy program manager and have to point out that the H-D course is NOT just for those who want to ride a Harley exclusively. I taught a lot of new riders who either already owned a non-Harley or subsequently bought a bike other than a Harley for their first ride. That's okay! As long as you're on two wheels, I'll gladly ride with you.
