Question Hey Guys!

I am looking into buying a cheap bike, I go to school at A&M and I really just want something I can shoot around town instead of driving my Integra everywhere. A bike will also give me time to do some bigger projects on the car (not to mention park like ANYWHERE on campus).

My dream would be like a ~500 dollar dual sport in good running condition. not real concerned about age or looks too much. just looking to get into the game.

anyone got any good deals for a noob or at least some direction, i think ive just about dried up craigslist.

Also, some good reliable street legal models would be excellent info...my model knowledge on bikes is severely lacking.

On a sidenote, heres my baby
