Hey all,
I'm new to the site and the forum. Always was interested in bikes. No bike yet. Plan on taking the MSF within the next two months. $195 bucks here in FL (I'm in Panama City)

Question for the experienced: How much funds should I save up for to get a bike and the gear? I'm going to start with either the Ninja 250 ($2k?) or 500 ($?) I am guessing another $1k for gear? I was looking at newenough.com.

Thanks. This site rocks:thumb:

Im assuming used which is probably $1500-2500 depending on the condition of the 250 or 500. GEar will cost $1000 for reputable brand name apparel, but you could budget $500 if you only bought sale items that aren't Arai, dainese,...the good stuff.
Insurance could be as cheap as $250 year liability. Full coverage would depend on your record.

Your figures are right on the money. $1k should get you descent gear. Nothing fancy, but nothing questionably either. 250's and 500's ussually go for about the same price, with them its more a of a metter of availability than anything else.
