I am totally getting a crotch rocket by next summer. I have been saving up and should be at my goal come October. So my goal has been to get a used bike and all the gear I need for under 10 grand. I have rode quite a few bikes but nothing that was too scary yet. My buddy has been trying to talk into buying his Triumph 1050, but I would hate to spend so much money on a bike and end up dropping it and wrecking myself. I will for sure work my way up to something with some decent power, but for now I have been looking (when I get the chances) at the cheapest bikes possible. Any tips let me know because I have been serious about this for 2 years now and the time has almost come.
