I just passed the MSF Basic Rider Course. I need to get my license, which will be the easy part. After that I need to figure out what I'm going to do when it comes to insurance and purchasing my first motorcycle. I don't know a single soul who rides, so I am all alone in the dark a little bit. My instructor mentioned that joining the American Motorcycle Association would allow me to have insurance at about 40 bucks a year. Are any of you familiar with this? If that is true, then what is the catch? I heard insurance is typically over a hundred bucks a year other than that. Also, I haven't the slightest clue when I will actually be purchasing a motorcycle...hopefully sometime this summer. So, would it be best to get insured right before I purchase a motorcycle?
