That seems to be a fine deal on a fine 1st bike.Danimal said:My 2005 GS500 is for sale. 3,600 miles, never been down, a few minor modifications, a super comfy riding position. Its a very popular female bike.
Show your wife, see what she thinks!
boo that bike!!!christianweisser said:Many of the training courses use the Buell Blast--my local Harley shop uses them for their course then sells some of the training bikes for cheap. It is lightweight, easy to handle, and very inexpensive. You can find a used one in great condition for 3K--I guarantee you'll find one in your area if you look.

I'm not so sure. I remember getting on my learner cruiser soon after I got my monster and it was so much easier to ride. Sure, it doesn't handle, but any beginner is nuts to try to attack the twisties. I felt like I was riding an old Schwinn bicycle with pretty pink streamers on the handlebars. I don't know if the riding position and power of a sport bike is a good thing for beginners, but I am barely out of that stage myself, so what do I know...Razzo Bolognese said:First of all you'd do well to start her sporty and then learn to cruise.
