I don't think a German license is going to help you because it probably won't be accepted to get an insurance in the US. Besides, you have a student visa (not a tourist visa) and I think you need to get a Florida license if you intend to drive here - at least, I know it's a requirement for worker visas (H1, L1...).

According to the DHSMV (http://www.hsmv.state.fl.us/handbook...es/intro.html), you can ride a motorcycle in Florida between the age of 16 and 21 if you get your automobile driver license and complete the motorcycle safety course. The best, though, would be to go to the nearest DHSMV office and ask them.

You don't want to screw up with the law in the US, it's tough here.

Find an inexpensive dirt bike and hit the trails. Lots of good riding in Florida and other areas. No license needed, great training and experience.
