Hey there. I currently ride an '81 Yamaha Maxim 650 (sorry no pics), but am looking to get a new bike before Winter starts since there's some great deals. I really want to get a sport bike, but due to insurance (I'm 18, been riding street for a year) there's no way I'm going to pay $3500 a year for a "superbike" (current bike is only $160 a year :O) . It's really unfortunate too because I found an '06 Suzuki GSX-R 600 for $3000 and under 4000 miles. Damn that woulda been a nice deal. I got a list from my insurance company of the bikes that they consider to be "superbikes", leading to an insane insurance cost. Anyways. I'm looking for a "naked" bike with the "crotch rocket" look or been looking at Buells. I really like the look of the Buell Lightning, or Firebolt (amazingly it's not on the list) and was also looking at the Suzuki SV650 or SV1000. Anyone have any suggestions? Looking to spend $5,000 or less.
