Thinking of buying a motorcycle

I've been thinking of buying a motorcycle.

I've been looking at Honda Shadows. I am going to take a class on riding motorcycles so I atleast have experience on them.

Any other suggestions for beginners like myself?

Thanks

Why would you buy one for only a couple of weeks? It seems like you'd take a HUGE hit on depreciation doing that?

Taking a class is a good thing. You learn a lot that even the most experienced rider might not.

I wouldn't start big. I'm sure when you take the class they will offer their suggestions as to what size bike would fit you well.

That is a very popular one to start with. You should be fine with a Shadow

I changed it. My brain thinks ahead of me before I type it out. Lack of sleep.

That is what I was thinking that they would offer suggestions.

Though I think the Shadow would be a great choice for me. I am going to schedule n appointment with a company that is based out of where I live.

The classes will definitely help. I plan on taking one of the courses when my bike is running right, lol.

What year of Shadow? Brand new, or older?

They're definitely a solid bike, and even the 750s have decent power for highways and hills.

I am not sure on what year. I don't want one to expensive but one that is relatively up to date.

What year is yours?

Mine is an '85, lol.

Mid to late 2000s, they switched to fuel injection, I think.

Is that good or bad? Damn I knew I should've taken classes in automotive during high school and college.
