Newbie Looking For Bike

i am compltetely new to the bike world. i know only a couple of guys who own bikes and they are out of state. i need to find a bike for this season and i do not want to wait till i take my MSF class. i want to have a ride right after the class is over so i can get good at it fast.

Does anyone have a suggestion as to where to get a bike cheap...

Good bikes cheap will probably lead you to the smaller used bikes. The Ninja 250's and 500's are good ones to start on and can be had for very cheap. Suzuki also has a 500, but I don't know about the availability of used ones as I've never looked into them.

Do a search on first bikes in the New Members area or the New Riders areas and you'll find lots of good information.

As far as where to find a bike there are any number of places to look. Cycletrader, your local newspaper classifieds, the classifieds on this site, dealers, etc. Look around a bit and don't just jump on the first thing you see. Be careful and look for prior damage from wrecks, signs of poor maintenance, or anything else. Looking around will also give you a feel for pricing as well. You can also find pricing at


for just about any year, make, and model bike.

Still try to get into the MSF as soon as you can though!

I have a 2001 Blue Suzuki SV650S that I am selling. It is rated as one of the best beginner bikes. It has sporty styling but not the crazy powerband that most of the other 600CC sportbikes have.

I am asking $4,000 OBO.

I have pictures available. Email me if you are interested.

I have attached a picture as well.

Where are you located? How many miles on the bike? Been dropped? I'm interested in the bike.
