Itzel, have you taken the MSF yet?

I've look at both your threads and it seems you are a diamond in the rough for motorcycles. I really think you should take the MSF before even considering on buying a bike.

Have you ever rode a bike before? Not as a curb monkey, controlling it.

+1, You would be amazed how many people buy a bike, take the course, and then realize they bought a bike that's not right for them

first ask about the title. Second, offer him 1000 and work your way in the middle. Still try to take it to a Mechanic to take a look at it.
I think this one is better than the other one. Take the MSF as soon as you can. During the first times you are riding, try to ride with a group and ask for someone to go along with you.
