Let me start off by saying I love the water cooled bikes a lot. I have a few myself. They are amazing machines if the maintenance is kept up.
Honestly with a budget of 1500 there are a lot of choices out there. You have to be willing to drive a few hours though. The best bikes to start on are ninja/CBR 250 or 300s or the SV650. Don't rush yourself into a bigger bike than needed. The nice thing about smaller bikes is they hold their resale value well. Should be able to get the same out of it as you put in.Hey cock gobbler, thanks for the advice. But i have not bought the bike. My final offer was 1500. I dont think it was a accidental bike, because he said the other owner still has the fairings. also he said the cluster was changed because the fairings were changed. makes me a little worried about the kms on the bike. also he was a mature 40 yr old man. Stating that he had spent allot on the bike. also i do reliaze 1100cc is huge bike. I was drawn by the price and the look. I really dont have the budget of swithing to smaller bikes then to bigger. do you think i should wait until maybe i find a cheaper 600cc instead and taking a course. also the seller wasnt fully comfortable of selling the bike to me. Seemed like a nice guy.
