Hello new rider

Hey everyone i am new to riding and i don't have a bike yet. I saw a great one on craigslist but couldn't get to it fast enough. I am going to school so money is tight. I could use some help find a bike at a great price. I know i will mess up my first bike learning so i don't need anything great looking just runs good. Please help.

Give us your budget and we will help you narrow it down. A used sv650 can be had for well under 3 grand.

$1000 for a running bike sounds pretty tight. You might be able to find an old 90's enduro or something for that price. Maybe others will chime in.

Another good deal: https://houston.craigslist.org/mcy/5214179967.html

There are plenty of Shadows out there for the price you have in mind... you just need to look for it.

Good Luck!
