I love that this article says not to get discouraged if you don't pass the first time (or second or third). I consider myself a skilled rider and have been riding over a decade...but it took me THREE tries to pass the MSF test. I had had no experience with dirt bikes and the coordination and use of the clutch was my nemesis. My first try, I dropped the bike and broke off the clutch! While others were passing, I was hanging my head but my heart wouldn't let me quit! And it was a happy day when I passed on my third try. It was the hardest thing I've ever attempted but I am so thankful I didn't give up. Riding has been my greatest joy (after the birth of my son). So, to all you beginners, I say, "hang in there! Realize your dream!"

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!
