Thank you all for your recommendations and help.

I've been researching and looking up bikes in craigslist. Sadly, it seems that only Honda Shadow Spirit is popular on the site. I'll keep looking around though. After all, I still need to finish the course first.

Great! It does make sense that freeways are safer in the freeways.
Out of curiosity, where or what situation do you think motorcycle accidents happen the most?

I'd love to see the stats on highway versus surface street accident percentages. Buzzing along with the flow on the highway has always felt safer to me.

Its.......A FACT!

Riding anywhere in FL has never felt safe to me.

You've got broken down Haitian vehicles scattered all over the freeway and blue hairs doing the no look out of the parking lot on surface streets.

I think the old adage,"Most accidents occur within ten miles of home." is true.

In fact, I've moved a few times because of it!

I feel much safer...

I park my bike ten miles from home and hitch hike the rest of the way.

Since childhood i was passionate about bikes and when my father buy me my first bike i was so happy that i cant say any word to its like stars glittering in my eyes and i feel like getting everything in the world. Its kind of Law of attraction work at that time for me towards my new bike.
