So for the past 6 months or so I've been kicking around the idea of getting a bike. Never driven (I've already been corrected by a friend that says your don't 'drive' a motorcycle you 'ride' one) one and I guess I don't know where this desire is coming from. Maybe a quarter life crisis? Anyway, I'm wanting to be on the cheap for a first one. I'm thinking about $1000-$1500. I like the look of older standard bikes. Don't like the looks of Ninjas and other sport bikes. A friend of mine has a Honda 919 and I love the way that looks, but it's a lot out of my price range. I've been looking at Kawasaki KZ650 and 750s. I know where there's a 750 for under a grand that needs a starter. Also been looking at Honda Shadows - although those used usually push up toward $2k. I've also got my eye on a Yamaha XJ750 seca for about $1000 in the next town over. You guys have any other recommendations in my price range?
