Absolutely. The local community college offers them pretty regularly in the warmer months.

Sorry for the hijack.
If you're man enough for the sandbox, a 250 cc motorcycle will be joke for you when you get home. (Not to mention having your buddies smirking at you) Take a basic riders course. Shoot they give you a 125 or 250 cc bike to learn on. After that, I'd start at 500 or 600 cc with a used JAP bike. If you like motorcycling after you get your feet wet, you will go ....soon....say your second riding season.... to a 1000cc+ bike. Don't invest too much in your first bike. It and you will probably get a little road rash.
Are you a big man in size/weight? (I assume you are a man, not a woman)

Girl told me once: "You don't get laid on a Honda"
Good luck with your trip.
