Hiya!

Basically i have a question, because I am interested in getting a motorbike (scooters are for men that want to drive motorbike but want to feel wind on their vagina instead, and cars are too expensive and not cool enough).

So, for my first motorbike I'd like to get Kawasaki Ninja 500r imported from USA because it's much cheaper (by £1000-£1500 if you're lucky) and I believe this is a perfect beginners motorcycle because it isn't too fast, it's safer and looks quite cool as well!

So my question is: I am 17 right now, is it possible for me to ride a motorbike at this age? and what are the issues I'd face if I was to import this motorbike from USA! Cheers!

you will need to do a CBT, theory, Mod 1 and then Mod 2 tests. as you are young you will be restricted to 125cc for 2 years untill you can do Mod 1 and 2 again on a bigger bike.
this is explained quite well on the first page of the TSR bike soc thread.

in your position id be tempted to just do the CBT then get a 125 for a while. this will make the tests easier (as youll have practice), cheaper till you can get on a bike, and spread out the cost. (i had a 125 for about a year).

as for the bike, id get a uk one as you can avoid the red tape, import taxes, and higher insurance (as its a Gray import), also a CB500s is a similar bike but more reliable.

You're pretty much restricted to a 125 at the moment.
