Motorcycles - What’s the Law?

I would like to open up a topic regarding Motorcycles. I have learned that there is absolutely no insurance required to own/operate a motorcycle in the state of Washington. That the Drivers guide for vehicles has but 2 or 3 lines regarding watching out for them. Any 16 year old kid can go out and spend $4k on a 150 mph crotch rocket and can endanger himself, his passenger and other traffic. All without any insurance. I carry Motorcycle insurance (cause I want my backside covered). Costs me $168 a year. Cheap. Why isn't it mandantory?
