I have never been on a motorcycle before but it's something I always wanted to get into. I plan to take the MSF basic course soon to get started. In the meantime, I'm looking for a good starter bike. I've read the various debates about getting a small bike vs. getting one you won't grow out of soon. I think if I can find a decent starter under $2000 (preferably closer to $1000 if possible) with good resale value, I don't mind learning on that. I would rather just learn correctly and safely and put up with the hassle of selling a bike in a few months than to get in over my head with a powerful bike. The thing is, I have no idea what bike would be good. I always wanted a crotch rocket, but the older I get, the more I am starting to like Harleys. So I'm not sure if I should start with a small standard, or get a small crotch rocket. Anyhow, I'm open to suggestions as to what bikes to be on the lookout for. Thanks in advance!
