New to the site, new to biking. In July I'm taking the motorcycle course at MCC with my youngest son. I'm looking for a cheap starter bike for us to practice on until then. Going to look at one this afternoon. Hope to see y'all out there soon.

what type of riding do you plan to do? round towner? long trip type? speed demon? all that is gonna play into consideration as to what type of bike to ride.

Welcome to the forum. You will find lots of help here but I would look out for that Brownstown gang. I hear they all have the same parole officer. Now if you are looking for real corruption i'm from New York. (Western) LOL

Welcome from Wolverine Lake! If you are new riders I would suggest the Riders Edge course through Harley. Nothing to do with riding a Harley it is much more one on one max of six riders at a time which is very nice.

Commuting and some long trips. Right now I have a 150 mile round trip commute. I'm not too concerned about the bike I get right now (as long as it will do highway speeds). After I get some miles under my tires get drop it once or twice, then I'll start looking for the bike I really want.

I've already registered/paid for the course at MCC.

Welcome. I am from Warren also. I would give the Buell a +1. Its a great bike to learn how to ride.

:welcome:

The Buell is a great start bike. However, if you plan on riding it on a 150 mile commute, you may want to look at something more cruiser style you can stretch out on.
