    Denver it's called Insurance. If the insurance says 18 is the minimum age that's what it will be. Otherwise there's NO insurance. I also doubt any insurance would allow anyone under 18 because of the liabilities, litigation and etc.

    and thus someday soon insurance companies will rule the world, blah blah blah, if you let them dictate they will. any 16 year old that passed a simple drivers ed course can drive in rush hour traffic in downtown chicago or new york, or any other overpopulated under stress metropolitain city in this country, compared to that driving a MT is a piece of cake, so i say if your qualified, your qualified. like i said there are some overzealous mid-life crisis drivers out there now that shouldnt ride a bike, if thats okay, what the heck. im not suggesting everyone or anyone 16 17 0r even 18 should get an instant seat, but if you can pass the test, your in. just for grins, research all MT related accidents, what was the age of the operator. i want to wear this out
