This ones probably been seen before, so i searched it but couldn't find anything. Two things, i am looking for my first bike. I think im going to go with the gs500f. I can get a new '05 for $4200, which seems like a good deal to me. Should i go for new? Or get a used bike?
Also, what do i look for in used bikes. I have no experience, so your info's appreciated!

Go used for your first bike. Statistics say you'll drop it and you don't want to do that with a new bike, do you?

Good choice of first bike, too. :thumb: Don't forget gear and the MSF course.

If you're going to finance though, there are some better deals on new bikes. I know everyone thinks you should get a used one for a first bike, but a new one isn't the worst thing you can do. If you keep full coverage on it, and a fairly low deductible, the insurance will take care of it anyway if you drop it.
