any and all advice is useful
If you are interested in learning how to ride a motorcycle, you should take the riders course and get your license before buying a bike. It's not uncommon for people to decide they don't like riding after completing the course. Better to spend $200 or so for the course, than $2,000 for a bike if you decide you don't like or the bike you bought is not a good fit. The riders course will give you a safe place to assess to your skill and confidence levels, which will have a bit effect on what bike you get.

Old bikes are awesome and cheap too, but more than likely, you're going to have to do your own wrenching. If you have the skill, great, but if not, it may spend more time in the garage than on the road. Parts for 40 year old bikes can be hard to find as well, which is something to keep in mind. Good Luck.
