Not alot money what do I do?

Hey guys I really want to get into riding. But I don't have much money to work with. Should I start off on a 250 that is cheaper or should I try to save up and buy the slightly bigger bike that I want?

Your money your choice. Buy all the bike you can.

Buy what you can afford and buy used. You will most likely drop it sometime in the learning process. Also take the Basic Rider's course.

The female passenger picked the bike up like it was a bicycle! She had it up before the rider even got to his feet.

Spend your money in this order: Good fitting helmet and riding gear, Basic Rider Course, used bike. If you run too low on money before getting to the bike, you at least have everything you need to start riding as soon as you can get one.
