Newbie looking to buy

Hi my names Nate. Just started riding and finished my motorcycle safety course today. Looking for a small, 250cc bike, somewhere in the price range of 800-1500. Preferably on the lower side of that.
Thanks.

Not going to find much under that price range thats ridable...most 250's are around $2 to 3k but there are cheaper ones....look on craigslist also...lots of 250's there...a Ninja 500 is a good starter bike also...good luck

Welcome to MH! For that price range you will not find much... It is possible though, just be persistent and keep looking

And thank you flipstyledsm22. I'll probably increase my range a bit after working for a couple weeks.
