I have finally decided to do it and go out to start riding. That said, I'm looking to buy a reliable bike, minimum 500 - 600 cc but the boss (wife) has set the limit to 2500 bucks. Im looking for a late 90's Shadow or something similar. I do not want a chain driven bike. Plse let me know what you have and send pictures if possbile. Im not in a hurry as i will not be doing my course until Aug at wich time i intend to purchase a bike.
