First bike help...

Hi all!

For the record: I am a total noob in motorcycling and have never ridden one. However, I signed up for the Safety Training Course and will start that in a month.

I was thinking about a new Ninja250R to start me off in this new world. Does anyone have other suggestions? Maybe a used bike for ~2500-3000$. What are my options? Oh and I have a helmet (from my autocross days)

Another clubrsx defector huh?

I'm in the same situation as you... brand new rider. I'm planning on picking up a used ninja 500 as soon as I take my MSF which unfortunately won't be until august.

I did a little searching and found this:

4. Something that leaves you with enough $$$ to afford a full set of gear.

I love my little SV650s, which I investigated on the recommendations of the lists.

Good suggestions for first bikes. There are other threads with similar recommendations.

Make sure you have enough $$ for gear (check that helmet for mc use) and insurance. Just in case, don't buy until *after* your course.
