New guy from Gulfgate.

Sup all,

I'm a new to the site but have been reading for a while and decided to make my first post. I've taken the MSF course and just got my Class M last week!

I wasn't picky on what bike I wanted (sport or cruiser) and since I basically knew nothing about a new bike for a beginner, I followed someones advice in a post. I kinda liked the tight turns in the MSF so I think the twisties would be awesome to try one day, but the GF seemed ok with a cruiser but not a sportbike too much. So I'm looking at a Yamaha VStar 650 from CL this weekend. And before someone says anythin, i'm not whipped, just glad she's kinda ok with me gettin a bike and she seemed enthusiastic about cruisers.

And I DID read the stickied post about what to do when buying a used bike, but it's LOT to do.... I can do some of the stuff except that I don't know anyone who rides who I can take with me to get a 2nd opinion. :-(

Peace.
WurM-

Your best bet is to just put on here what side of town the bike is on and ask nicely and I am sure you can get someone to meet up with you......Just a thought

I sat on a bunch of sportbikes and cruisers, liked 'em both and couldn't decide on what type and she helped.

Welcome to our Family!

by all means hopefully someone will be able to help you look over the CL interest.

no matter what you find, make sure to put some aside because there are always hidden costs over the initial purchase. Especially in gear. Dont skimp there.
