Hoping for this summer

So I have my license and I have ridden a few of my friends' bikes in the last few years but I would really like to get my own. I look online almost weekly at sites like ebay to see what kind of bike I can get fro what kind of money. So I'm trying to raise the money by working but I also have to take summer school and that cuts into my ability to work and earn money. Also getting hours at my current job is tough and not many other places are hiring. So I am turning to the internet community for some help. If you have any tips or would like to help me get closer to owning my own bike check out my blog at hxxp://jconerty89-motorcyclequest.blogspot.com.
Change the hxxp to http

I will try to post daily on there my progress and I will also post some videos, funny stuff, and other information.

So check it out, tell your friends, and be sure to stop by every day.

Have you checked Craigslist? Also do you know which type of bike you like/feel comfortable on? If not I suggest to go to dealers and ask the salesman if you could sit on some bikes to get the feel of them.

Remember to factor in the additional cost of gear and insurance.
