I got rid of my dirtbike about 2 years ago due to being busy all the time with school and work, and plus there's not...

    First Bike / New Rider
    So I'm looking into buying a first bike, and I have a bit of opinion-related questions. Here are the bikes I'm considering. I'm almost definitely going to buy used, and I'm not putting too much weight on year: Ducati Monster, 600cc-750cc, although 900cc keeps popping up too Triumph Speed...
