Is This A Good Deal??

i found a 2005 gs 500f with about 6,000 miles and the guy wants 3400, i already know thats 200 bucks over retail.. so what should i try and get him to go down to???? And the trade in value is like 2200 im new to riding so i dont wanna buy a 600cc bike cause i know i couldnt handle that. but i also dont wanna blow my money on a 250 when im gonna wanna upgrade soon after. And being a college student im strapped for cash.... so i need your help. or if you got a bike for sell thats good and is in or around 2g's let me know... thanks

brakes are fine on mine, but I hear the newer gs's have a bit better brakes.

You should be able to find something out there for a couple of grand. Granted it may be a little older but if you are patient I believe you could find a well kept bike that someone strapped for cash would be able to give you a good deal on. Kuddos on wanting to start on used. If you drop it (it happens) you won't feel so bad about it. Good luck.

beware carbon fiber accessories. i wound up with a couple on my bike thinking it was black from the pics i saw on ebay and when i got it it looked really bad in person. it's just a bad checkerboard pattern printed all over the item. i doubt his bar ends are really cf. carbon fiber would probably not be so good for a bar end weight anyways...
