LOL! I don't think it's sad that you want a motorcycle. I want one too! I mean, yeah, I have one. But I want it! 8^) As others have said, it's a good idea to learn to ride a bicycle before getting a motorcycle. You need to learn to balance and steer. I'm sure it must seem very mysterious to someone who doesn't ride a bicycle, but it's a 'muscle memory', meaning the only way to understand it is to do it. When you're learning to balance you sometimes lose your balance and fall. This is MUCH better at 8 mph on a bicycle than 30-50 mph on a motorcycle, not to mention that if the bike falls on top of you (which sometimes happens) it's better with a 20 lb. bicycle than a 450 lb motorcycle. If you can handle a bicycle and you can shift a manual-shift car, you could just hop on a motorcycle and ride it home! That's what I did with my first bike (at night too!) But it's not recommended these days. If you can't clutch and shift already, you could still hop on a scooter, because they have automatic transmissions. While I'm here there's one more thing. Years ago, kids used to learn to ride a bicycle with training wheels. But these days there's a new way, something called a 'gravity bike' (and I have NO idea why it's called that.) You take the pedals off your bike and lower the seat until you can put your feet on the ground. Then you ride by 'kicking' like with a scooter. You learn to balance so you can ride a distance between kicks, or down a hill without kicking. Learning to balance and steer becomes very easy. When I was a kid, kids learned to ride without training wheels about 6-7 years of age. Today they make real bicycles for three year olds! Because they learn this way.

Isn't it sad that your uncle Donald hasn't bought you a motorcycle yet? Christmas is only a about a month and a half away. The bicycle training is a different thing.

Start off on a bicycle, then graduate to a moped or a scooter. Then, when you are feeling confident, add the shifting- motorcycle. Look, your almost there.

You are 14. Get a pedal bicycle and learn how to ride. Ride the bike on the streets, following the Rules of the Road. In two years you will know how to ride a motorcycle.
