Just curious, you have never owned a motorized vehicle before? Do yuo have your M-Class license? the PCX requires a motorcycle license tags and insurance in MD? plus new laws require the met be registered also. Take your time, the PCX will go over 60mph and experience is a must, be patient learning the bike. Where in MD are you guys? near DC. We have a local DC meetup group, mostly for the 125cc + crowd for day rides and events.
