Yesterday I finally went and got my license finalized at the DMV. I’m legal to ride baby! Woooooo!

I passed my motorcycle class with flying colors! I was mad at myself because I was hoping for a perfect score but, whatever, I passed by a very wide margin, only two small mistakes. And I know I can ride well because I was perfect when we were practicing in class, I just got a little nervous for the test. So I’ve got my road test waiver in hand, and I’ll be stopping by the DMV tomorrow after work and I will be an officially licensed to drive a motorcycle!
Until I will have my license! Assuming of course that I pass the class. I had two lessons this week and one more tonight, then my Basic Rider Course starts tomorrow night!
I signed up for the Basic Rider Course! The first one that I could make all the dates to isn’t until mid August which is a bummer but it gives me some time. So in between now and then I will take another lesson or two (or three depending on how quickly I progress and how much money I have) and get all ready to rock the course. Oh yeah! The only downside is that I won’t have my license until the end of the summer so I will only have a month or two to ride until it starts getting too cold or snowy or whatever. But hey, whatever, it doesn’t matter! Wheeeeee!
I officially rode a motorcycle!
I was so nervous when I got there but my instructor Steve was awesome, he put me at ease really quickly. Then I just had fun. I am definitely hooked, there’s no going back now! Two hours worth of lessons, I learned all the controls and I was officially riding by the end. I didn’t get to shifting out of first gear but I did ride a few times with my feet up on the pegs. I think I’m officially hooked.
I just signed up for my first 2 hour lesson! It’s next tuesday! I feel like I have so much to do between now and then!
Steps 1 – 3 accomplished!
I got my permit today!
Riding motorcycles is badass, especially for girls. Here’s how I plan to do it.
1. Get the motorcycle handbook from the DMV
2. Study it
3. Schedule the permit test
4. Take the two 1/2 day class to get my license
5. Rent a garage to store motorcyle and get insurance
6. Buy a motorcycle
Steps 4 through 6 might not be in that order but that’s all the stuff I need to do. I’m hoping to be done by the end of July. I also might take private lessons before I take the class so I have a little experience before I have to take the skills test. Cause I’d really hate to fail it.
