Only problem with some older bikes may be condition of rubber/ wiring/ carbs etc. How was it maintained? Parts availability might be an issue with some as well.leezerz said:im also wondering for a beginner bike, what about the older susukis or yamaha cruiser or standard types(whatever to label them)? i guess an
ex. 1973 yamaha xs650 or 1980 susuki gs550e
any input would be great
as far as MSF courses go. state sponsored courses are all pretty much filled till aug/sept for $25.
or training classes at the local harley dealer for $325 next month.
harley course sounds intresting b/c its longer, more of a personal training course, and you get to practice on buell blasts. also a $50 gift certificate for passing.
Any course is better than none. The HD one does spend time w/ "tours" thru the dealership. Schedules can vary a bit, depends on how much time you can allot over the 4-5 days there also.
