So, I'm taking the ABATE motorcycle training class soon and plan to get my endorsement soon after that. I know you don't need a bike to take the class, but I also know that once I get said MC endorsement, I'll be chomping at the bit to put it to use. In that vein, I've been searching the internet, seeing what the going rate is on bikes. I've been able to find things like this Suzuki http://indianapolis.craigslist.org/mcy/2951969715.html that, as near as I can tell, are fairly priced. But I'm a little wary of making my first bike purchase a used bike. After all, isn't that saying about used vehicles go that you're just "buying someone else's problems?" If it were a car, I wouldn't be worried, since I know how to inspect a car, and can work on them to a good extent. But bikes are pretty foreign to me. So, what's the verdict? Should I stick with a CPO or new bike from a dealer for the first one, or am I blowing it out of proportion?
