I figure something with a 650cc wouldn't be too much to handle... But what should I look for in a motorcycle?
Is it hard to use the 6 speed? Or does it take time?
What bike recommendations do you suggest?
There aren't too many "used dealers": Your best bet is craigslist.org or cycletrader.com and buying from a private party O0kryptonkid07 said:cool. I'm thinking about getting one in the near future. I'm almost wanting to just get the chip for my GTI and leave it at that. and then get a bike. i want something to just go driving around in. I definitely know the dangers of having a motorcycle, so I don't want anything fast. There's no point... i don't wanna race. That's something I'll leave to in my car where I have something all around me.
I don't even know where a "used motorcycle dealer" is...
I just have to add- in the hands of a skilled rider, a Ninja 250 can run circles around bigger bikes when you are riding in the hills.

We had a guy last spring who was in the paddock (10MPH zone) during tech inspection before a trackday. He chose not wear a helmet for the 150ft to get from his pit to tech. His bike passed tech and while returning he hit a patch of black ice, high sided the bike and the footpeg punctured his skull. He died three days later. He'd still be here if he had his lid on.lumns said:safety equipment is key. there is a really good reason it costs to much....its gonna save ur life.
Lemme get this right- how do you disagree with what he said (did you not read it?)748ty said:xnopix is so wrong on this on! sorry to put it out there like that and you may not want to read this next line bro but i have been around bikes for some time. people that think this way crash and crash hard i realy hope you don't man but i have lost more than one friends on bikes and you start to see a pattern and you are the pattern bro bikes are not your dick it really does not matter how big it is. really
