I loved riding motorcycles as a kid, my other brother had a few dirt bikes (one was an Yamaha "enduro" which was both a dirt and street bike). I've always wanted to get one for the street, but also been too risk adverse to get one. But I am a "living on the edge" kind of guy, I have to let that hang out. I would love to get one, even if I only ride it around the neighborhood and to get groceries close by and stuff like that, no freeway.
Anyone have one or know about them? What is a good starter bike? Brand and size engine. I'm thinking 250 is too small. Maybe a 400? 650? I know anything over 650 is too big for a starter bike, too much power.
Open to all suggestions and discussion!
Just pick up a suzuki 500 from early 2000s and call it a day, powerful, light enough, easy to ride.
