I need some help (Bay Area) on a bike for sale

Hey guys, i'm lookin at an ad right now for a 1989 Yamaha FZR600. It has a brand new pearl paint job, R1 body kit, jetted, new tires, needs a new petcock and battery. Supposedly it's low miles and he has it going for 2500 obo. It seemes like its in decent condition in the picture. THe thing is, i dont know the first damn thing about bikes. I can do cars and trucks, but bikes ive never touched. I'm askin if someone who knows a little something about bikes who is local to me, maybe if you could come along and ride the bike for me and see if it's in decent condition. I dont even have my permit yet. I know a 600 isnt the best bike to start off with for a beginner, but i know if i get the ninja 250, its gonna get REAL old REAL quick, and i dont have the time, money, or luxury to be trading in bikes after 6 months.

Can anybody help me out, the area code for the number is 650, and i live in danville, near walnut creek and pleasanton.

Thanks

Pat

I'm gonna move this to the "Daily Rider" forum as you will get more exposure there.

Good luck!

Hey East Bay

Sup Pat

I live in the next town (San Ramon). If you are still looking for a bike, let me know. I have helped several friends get bikes. I now have 24,000 miles on my 98 CBR.

As far as your first bike, a 600 isn't a bad choice. You just don't use all of the throttle! They are light, nimble, and stable. You are right, don't go with a ninja 250. You will outgrow it soon (not knocking the bike).

You can email me if you have any questions or wanna go bike searching!
