Default Thinking about getting a Honda Ruckus and I have a few Questions.?

I know it only goes about 42 mph, which is a concern on some roadways with a faster speed limit I might have to travel on. Also, I am uncertain whether I need a motorcycle license or not in Texas. How much can I expect to pay for one? Are they hard to find? Should I take a motorbike safety course regardless of whether I need a cycle license or not? I plan on at least practicing a bit with it first. I have never owned a motorbike of any kind, so I feel a safety course might be good.

The top speed is officially 30mph according to Honda. You can hit 42 going downhill at full throttle, but uphill speeds can be as low as 24.

You need a motorcycle license. Here's more information about licensing and registration in Texas:

Expect to pay 1500-2000$ for a used Ruckus, and 2600$ or more new from a Honda dealer. I found mine on craigslist. Safety courses are always a good idea, but the Motorcycle Safety Foundation has some free materials online like this guide:
