I have a 2005 Yamaha R6 with 1000 miles on it for sale for $6100...the catch...its pretty much in perfect condition except it has paint overspray on it....other than that...the bike is perfect. Someone with a little time could definetly clean this up and have themselves basically a new bike for alot less than buying a new one.scubacross said:I am new to this forum and thought I would pop in and get some opinions.
Like many people, I have ridden many bikes prior to my interest in purchasing a sportbike. I used to race motorcross and ride for about 3-4 years, but it has been probably 4 years since I have ridden a lot. I am looking at purchasing a newer sportbike but still need my WI motorcycle license.
Should I even bother with the WWTC course for $105+? I would also have to wait until almost August to even get in! I was thinking of saving some cash and simply studying up for the written test, and then taking the actual road test.
What is all involved in simply getting your licence w/o taking the MSF courses and what would you recommend to someone in my shoes?

i'd assume the road test can't be that hard, especially with previous riding experience.
The beginner class is for someone with no or little experience. Alot of places offer intermediate and experienced course where you ride your own bike. WCTC offers the intermediate class occassionally.dorao said:I wish the course accomodated the non-newbie a little better, prehaps with optional harder excersizes. It is kind of funny, but when the instructors were yelling at everybody to speed up, one of them came to me and told me to "slow down so you don't intimidate the 'lesser skilled'". Thing is, I'm not 'that' good, and I know I have much to learn, but I complied with good nature.
