    I finally got around to reading the directions for "proper" membership so I'm logging in as a new member.
    I'm on my third bike (2009 Electra Glide Standard) and waiting for our Michigan weather to turn warm so I can take that first ride. Previous bikes were '65 Bonneville and '71 Honda (college bike and a great one). Preparing to retire next year so it's time to start riding again.

    New to bikes

    Hey, I just joined looking for advice on what type of bike to buy later this coming summer when I have the money. I've done some research, and I will have the chance to learn on a basic bike when I take lessons for my license before I buy my own. The basic criteria I am looking for is a standard cycle, good for both long distance and short, in-town riding. If anyone has any advice as to what I should look for or what bike I should look at, please let me know.
    Sorry for the length, didn't intend for it to be so long when I started typing,
    Andrew

    Question Advice

    I'm not sure where else to put this type of post, so if I put it in the wrong place, let me know please.

    Hi, I'm new to motorcycles and am looking at getting one sometime this coming summer before I go to college. I have been doing research, and am beginning to get a good grasp on basic technical terms and catagories; I would love to hear personal reasons as to why one bike would be better for me than another.

    Here are my criteria:
    -Long Distance and Short Distance Rides: Although I plan to ride this bike around town where my future university is at, my biggest reason for getting one (besides having wanted one for years) is as a cheap, reliable, gas efficient transport between my school, and where my girlfriend is going, 2 and a half hours away.
    -Comfort: Due to the same reasons, comfort for long time periods spent riding is a big factor.
    -Durability and Reliability: I have read some things saying the a higher displacement (larger than 250, but I don't want anything larger than 750 at the absolute most) will stand up to longer rides better.

    Although this one is pure vanity
    -Not A Cruiser or Like Style: Nothing against people who like harleys, that style just isnt for me. I really love the styling of the Kawasaki Z1000, but obviously, that bike is way too much bike for me.

    Bikes I have considered:
    -Buell Blast: I have concerns about the fact that it's single cylinder, and I have heard it vibrates on the excessive side, a fact that I feel would render it uncomfortable for long rides. Vanity also comes into play; the styling isn't quite what I'm looking for.
    -Suzuki Bandit GSF400: Concerns here include that it is sometimes listed as Sport-Standard, and by pictures, it looks as if the rider would have to lay down more on it than some other standards, making it uncomfortable for long rides.
    -BMW650GS: Biggest concern with this bike is the displacement. I'm wary about if this will be too big for me as a newbie. I have read in some posts that this bike is a good newbie bike, plus it looks to have a comfortable stance and the rest of the appearance isn't too bad either. I haven't read any reviews on it however, so I am less informed about it.

    The best advice is to take the MSF class. You will have a better understanding of what you want and can handle.

    Msf?

    My friend who just got a Ninja 250cc told me about a class offered by our local college that also does driving school (indiana state university); would that be the same thing as an MSF? it's two days, 15 hours long... they supply bikes to learn on. thats all i know so far.

    Some states, like mine, offer their own version of "MSF" so it is called a bit different..... I checked you Dept of Motor Vehicles website and they say that course meets or exceeds MSF... go for it
