Too easy to be behind the bars of a motorcycle?
Not sure how this varies, but in the state of NC, it seems far to easy to legally drive a motorcycle.
At the age of 16, a person can take the road course given at the DMV to obtain a motorcycle license. But a person can take a 15 minute written exam and obtain a motorcycle permit. That's it. The ONLY restriction on the permit is that the driver may not ride a passenger and they must wear a helmet. They can ride anywhere, with anyone, with any bike, at any given time. At least make it mandatory to take the MSF course or SOMETHING before being able to drive on the roads freely. But no course is necessary, no nothing. That just seems like an accident waiting to happen.
After all, NC DOES have the eight highest motorcycle death rate in the nation for a reason...
