I started out on a 600 SS...

wish I wouldve started smaller...I lack confidence. I'm good, cautious rider, but my confidence in my riding is not where it should be.

O snap! Guess my 250 may be a little too far away then. Good luck in your search though, just take your time looking and one will pop up.

Buy used bikes new ones lose their value so quick, especially rashed ones. The only reason you buy new is for the financing rates, but full coverage can make that expensive.

That looks more like it. Have you found out how many miles are on it? Sounds pretty good though.
