Other Forums/Places to by used bikes

Well I should have some cash in about a week. So I'm going to intesnsive my search for a used bike. Right now I have been hear cycletrader and ebay looking for bikes.
Bikes I'm looking at
Yamaha
Kawasaki
possible
Suzuki
I have sat on some Hondas and they don't "fit" well to wide for my likeing. I have alos heard that Suzuki is wider then the hondas so that will proably rule those out. I was wondering if any body can tell me some other places o line I can check for a bike. I have 4K to spend on just a bike. that is my budget Obivously I'd like to get one cheaper. I also don't want anything any older then a 99. but would perfer to have a 2000+ bike.

I have a truck, that I can pick the bike up in, and I'm not affraid to travel a little bit for a good deal.

Also coud sombody tell me what bikes have underseat storage. Just want a little bit of room for some small things I hate to have things in my pockets.

***edit***
As far as storage goes just a little place to keep maybe a cell phone and wallet, I can't stand having things like this in my pocket even when driving my truck. It just feels like it gets in the way.

Storage should not be a consideration in selecting a sportbike, IMHO. If you are looking for storage, buy a cruiser. Not trying to be critical, just saying that if you are looking for storage under the seat of bikes, you'll be sorely disappointed. You can probably fit the registration and proof of insurance in there. If you take out the manual and tools, maybe you could squeeze in a toothpick or two.

hmmm...beware of scammers on cycletrader and you should try craigslist.com if they have bikes up in NY, lastly, you can join diff. sportbike forums and check out their own classifieds, its a lil bit safer i think
