    At Donut Media we all love motorcycles just about as much as we love cars. Some of us are into MotoGP, Motocross, Supercross, Flat Track racing, and pretty much everything that involves two wheel racing! Motorcycles are just fun to ride and a very affordable way to go extremely fast, so naturally Nolan got bit by the motorcycle bug. So, what does it take to get started with a bike?

    For this episode of Whee House Nolan attended a private motorcycle training course. The official California sanctioned training programs will waive the DMV motorcycle driving test, the private course does not.

    If you are under the age of 21 you do have to ride with your permit for 6 months before you are given your license and the right to ride on highways.

    WheelHouse answers all the questions about the automotive and motorcycle world you never thought to ask. Nolan Sykes looks at the history, sociology and psychology behind the cars and bikes you love, and the features you might overlook.

    Some of our best videos ever are coming out soon, stay tuned so you won't miss a thing!

              I've been riding for a year now and I love my bike, I ride in the rain and practice carefully in the snow for fun, no matter how much practice you can't stop other crappy drivers, please always wear a helmet, long pants, a jacket and gloves. I was hit by a truck that blew a red light. Luckily I wore all my gear and only had some bruises a few broken ribs, my bike was destroyed but I'm alive and still riding. Be safe, it's cooler than being dead.

                          My first bile was a dinky thicc fat tire sand dune racer. Literally had a top speed of 160 with the govner never wanted to remove it because going over 160 off road is scary enough. The best part it was street legal because we got lights attached to it and had it registered. Fun little bike. Ripped and diped out of a lot of situations with it..

                                    "pariston top to buy you a 755 horsepower sports car" obviously you've never driven in Vancouver shit like that is Soo rampant here it's literally increased the insurance for everyone else. You see McLaren with N badges on them (N badge is what you get after you pass the written test)

                                          Just remember that if you take it to a mechanic to check it out, make sure you talk to the mechanic and keep his findings to himself and you of course. You don't to cough up 100 bucks so that the owner now knows what's really wrong with it.

                                              I always wanted to learn how to ride a motorcycle but for some reason my brain keeps telling me you'll never learn that skill lol. So am asking is it hard to learn and before you ask yes I know how to ride a bicycle

                                                  NOLAN! First off, what's up bro? Second, go with a Yamaha R3 or something in that nature. Kawi makes a 400 ninja. Other nice starter bikes are low CC cruisers. By low I mean 600cc-750cc. Yamaha Bolt, Honda Shadow, Kawasaki Vulcan S. All great bikes.

                                                                Got my license years ago, bought a brand new Suzuki DRZ400SM in college and it basically paid for itself in gas savings and low maintenance costs. Sold it a couple years ago and miss it every day! I should probably just move out of New England and move somewhere more bike friendly and just live on 2 wheels.
