    Hey KEV, I'll talk to you at LF if that's allright,if you want to start planning now let me know. When you come thru PA. maybe i'll ride to NY with you,can show you some nice roads.
    Depending how you come through PA.,maybe you and Rhonda can spend a nite at BEANTOPS camp(one of the best areas in PA. for riding) then ride through the Adirondacks to Lake Champlain.
    If you come through PA.in the eastern part of the state you can ride old mine road out of the Delaware Water gap to Port Jervis then ride RT 97 along the Delaware river to Hancock NY then through the Catskill mtns.to Lake George then north to Lake Champlain,here i go rambling.....i'll talk to ya at LF!

    Hey guys! First time posting here. Very new to the motorcycle world, no new in fact I never even rode one! So I just wanted to get on here and ask you guys about the permit processes in PA. It says I'll need to past a vision test and a paper test, is there a study guide for this test? I found this PDF file http://www.dmv.state.pa.us/pdotforms/pa_forms_manuals/pub147.pdf, is that all I need to be able to pass the test? What kinda question are on it?


    When I get my permit, since I have a Class C licences now I can just go out and by a bike and ride right? Thats not what I plan to do though, I'm gonna sign up for the state safety course being I know nothing about riding a bike.

    Also wanted to start the processes of finding a area dealer with a good rep, its good to build that kind of thing now.

    Thanks for your time guys!

    Take the motorcycle safety course its free in pa you do need your permit to take course and you will have license when done.

    If you can be patient enough, buy a cheap used dirt bike and ride trails for a year before hitting the street. This approach has so many advantages and no disadvantages that I can think of.

    Dave's XT is the way to go. God learning bike and good resale later when you are ready for a big bike.

    That's my plan, what kind of questions can I expect on the permit test though? For my starter bike Its anything goes. Probably gonna lay it down a few times before I get the hang of it. After I get decent I plan to look into a nice standard/naked bike

    Really? I was looking at a KLR

    That seems like a good deal, just want something a little bigger.

    Dirt bikes are not an option for me, I live in Philly and just sold an ATV that I could never find a place to ride with.
