Ah yes the F2...a great starter bike! You definitely made a good choice. Now you just need to make good choices in protective gear and taking the MSF course, if you have not already done so. This is your first bike, so I assume that you have not ridden in the past. Get the bike, get the gear, then enjoy the rest of the summer...

Learn to be a good rider, and learn to enjoy the ride. There is nothing more invigorating than a good mind cleansing ride.

I found one going for $2500. Its a '94 with aftermarket uppers but needs a paint job. Haggle this guy you're considering big time.

ive got a 94 f2 that i kept instead of trading in ...ive put about 75000 miles on it and it has had no real problems other than stuff wearing out from use....been a great bike i think youll like it to start on but dont pay too much!!!! only problem i have encountered over the years or heard of as a universal problem was the oil pressurized cam chain tensioner wearing out...so i bought a manual cam chain tensioner because as the bike got older replacing the stock tensioner still wasnt stopping the rattle.... cheap and easy fix tho
