help is this a good deal?

I am looking to get my first bike. I found a 1990 Yamaha FZR600 for $2895.00 from a dealer. I know it will probably be a bit high but since I destroyed my credit when I was yonger no one will give me a loan. This is the only place that can give me a six month lawaway program (unless anyone has any better ideas www sites maybe?). But anyway I have heard the FZR is a good bike, Should I go for it? I also found a FZR 250R for $2700.00 which may be better for a beginer but I dont want something I will grow out of to quick if that makes sence.

FZRs are good bikes no doubt, however for a bike of that age I feel that price is a little high. Check out other dealers if possible. Check out Cycle Trader to see what others are selling their bikes for if one is out there for sale. Their website is www.traderonline.com and also note how miles are on the bike. I hope this helps.

This may in fact be true, also another factor to play into this process is how soon do you want the bike. Three months down the road prices on bikes drop dramatically, at least here in Georgia.
