Motorcycle Question

Fellow T members. I am looking to purchase a small motorcycle to get around town. I live outside a small town and was thinking about using it to go to the gym, run errands etc.

Last time I had a bike I was in college, which was quite awhile ago. It was a Honda 250 if I remember. I’m no expert bike handler by any stretch and am not looking for a real rocket. Just a little put around toy. I want an electric starter and easy of operation if that helps.

I drive a pickup day to day so this is just for personal use.

Any ideas.

I would suggest that you consider a good used Jap cruiser. They tend to be relatively cheap and reliable. Lots of V-Star 650s around (Yamaha).

Agreed. You have to find the bike that is right for you as your bike is like a horse. You are your bike. You and your bike are one. You must use the force, drive to the dealership, sit on one and then allow the force to guide your decision.

Start your quest on the cruisers.

Good luck, my son.
