Now, I live in NYC. If I do get a motorcycle, I plan to use it for pleasure, maybe about 50 miles a week. Mostly riding on local roads in Brooklyn/Queens, Belt Parkway, BQE, LIE. It would be a 600-650cc bike. I've looked at insurance and it would cost me about 2100 for a year, 177 a month. I only plan to have it insured about 6 months a year since I don't want to ride it in the cold weather. Also, I'll have to do the MSF rider safety course. Also, I am very injury prone... I've gotten broken bones from playing sports and falling on bicycles.... lol

Do you think it is wise for me to get a motorcycle?
No, certainly not in NYC.

There are two kinds of Motorcycle owners

1) Those who have been in an accident
2) Those who are about to be in an accident

Also, those are insanely high insurance rates, what gives?
