Have you ever riden before? If not, have someone ride it to your house and wait a week until you learn what your doing. I watched a guy leave the local dealership on a brand new R1 only to see him drop it as he pulled out of the lot. He cracked the right fairing and caused $900 in damage before he ever got it home. I know your anxious to ride but waiting 5 days is worth it. Congrats on the new bike and welcome to the addiction.

If you have cash that's one thing. However, depending on your state, most lenders won't allow you to finance a bike unless you have insurance. You can't get insured without an endorsement.

Like I said though, if your paying cash for the bike, you don't need the proof of insurance.

Still they are going to make a copy of your license. So they'll know you don't have your endorsement.

All that crap I said aside. Be careful on it. Lots of folks will tell you it's not a good first bike and that's it's very unforgiving. That is true. But if you don't allow yourself to be stupid on the bike, respect it, and have good throttle control you'll be fine.

If your a hotrod in a car....don't get this bike. You'll be worse on two wheels....for as long as you survive. These things will kill you, respect them.

In OH when you finance a bike they don't even ask if you have a temporary permit the dealer assumes that if you buying a bike then you either have at least a temp or you will be getting one before you ride. I didn't even have to have proof of insurance but I think that it depends on who the financing is through mine was from suzuki had it been a bank I would of needed proof. If you don't have your temp yet get the packet from the bmv and study before you take the written test

make sure you say you have cash to spend today, and your going to every dealership within 100 miles and getting lowest possible price quote from them

they will want to make a sale today.

Make sure your clear you have cash and ARE buying TODAY, from whichever local shop gives u the cheapest deal

:wtf:Why don't you grab the motorcycle riders manual from the DMV and study for it or better yet take the MSF course. Especially since you're a complete newb. If you take the MSF course the DMV testing is waived.

Here's the link if you don't know where to search.

Get some decent gear like a helmet, gloves, jacket with armor, boots...

For some reason I won't be surprised if you post up in a couple of weeks looking for parts to fix your bike. I also hope you can afford insurance too.

I can see the obituary now: "he had never ridden a bike before!! Didnt even have a permit! Streetbikes are killing people! Lets take them off the roads!" Come on man, be effen smart, buy a used one and go to a parking lot somewhere and practice, ure gonna spend more money fixing it then ure gonna be able to enjoy it. Take an msf class first before you buy it. you waited this long to save the money so whats another couple weeks? its not like theyre gonna run out of bikes lol. im tired of being judged by the actions of a few so do us all a favor and WAIT!!!!!

Just because it is your first bike it doesn't mean you are gonna f it up. This is my first bike and I bought it brand new and have not damaged it yet, knock on wood. I also had been riding dirt bikes since I was a kid so that helped but riding is more natural for some people than others. I would suggest a MSF course before buying a bike. I bought my bike before I took the class or had an endorsement but I would not recommend doing it in that order.
