I'm not to sure what I want to do. I have been thinking that im going to get a gs500 next spring, hoping that with that, and all the gear and insurance and stuff that I need, will be somewhere around 2k. But I don't know if I want to put 2 grand atleast into something that I'm not sure that I am going to love. I am only 19, so I have plenty of years to start. I also don't have a ton of money, so starting now is going to be hard. I know that once I graduate from college it will be easier since I will have steady income, which I don't have now, and insurance will be much less. My other issue is that the roads around here suck, not a lot of twisties, not a lot of fun stuff. And lots of traffic. The last thing i want is to get nailed and be really injured. I know theres a very good chance that I would go down at some point, but I know thats the risk. I just don't know if I want to get into it yet.. ahhhhhh! If I dont get a bike i think I am going to try to find a project car to mess around with, something cheap that would be cheaper then a bike, yet still some fun.
