before i start, yes im taking a mandatory MSF class (air force requirement)
-i've researched SO MUCH about what would be suitable for my 1st bike.. i was considering the gs500f or the ex500 as my beginner bike. then someone said sv650 is also a nice beginner bike and if you really want to ride 600cc, f4i would be the next best bike. I realized out of all of them, i know i'd stick with the f4i the longest thus my best investment. Plus, in my location (del rio,texas) its nothing but flat land, hardly any traffic so i wouldnt have that much of an obstacle when i ride around.
I'm always open to other people's criticisms so let me know if I'm making the biggest mistake of my life.
-i got insurance quotes from allstate, progressive, geico, and AAA, and they all quoted me $4000~$5000 a year for a 2002 honda f4i
i went to state farm's website and they didnt have anything for motorcyclists
i have a good clean driving record (one accident that wasnt my fault) but no riding experience and the fact that im 20 years old .
what should i do?
-whats the best/cheapest way to ship a bike? (not much variety of used bikes for sale in my area)
-is there a website that has bunch a of reviews on gear, bike parts, bikes, etc...?
thanks... i hope this will be my last noob post in this section
