Getting into Motorcycling

I've had the desire to learn how to ride a motorcycle for a few years now. This summer, I decided to act on this bucket list item and enrolled in the Basic Rider Course with UtahRiderEd. I signed up for the weekend option. The classes ran all day Saturday and Sunday (until about 5pm). We were given a Motorcycle Safety Foundation text (from which the written portion of the test administered on Sunday came). My classes were at Murray High School and my bike for the course was a blue Yamaha XT225. Below are a few pictures of the setup. I now have my 649cc and below endorsement on my DL. It was nice only having to take the written test at the DLD since the MSF course eliminates the need for a road test. Now, to get a bike... a Ninja perhaps, anyone?
