Do you really want to have your first bike back? I remember seeing my first bike on Craiglist a year after I sold it.

I actually got it for free from a friend of a friend. That thing is bulletproof. Great on gas too. Never had a single issue with it.

Not sure where your at PVester, but there are usually a bunch of rebel 250's on Craigslist here. My wife was talking about here own bike so I was looking for awhile. Since she has cooled off to just want to ride with me. Maybe someday I'll be able to get her on her own ride.

Pay for the MSF class man. Let her learn her own bad habits she doesn't need to learn yours. Besides if she drops the bike there its no big deal.

+1 on the MSF, it's worth every penny. Drop it twice and you fail though. At least up here it is

Well, she is! All busted up and jizzified. Yuk!

Don't let sentiment get you into trouble.

And just hang around if you think THAT was vulgar!

I think that's only during the exam part that you can't drop it.

I have to say, if I came across my first bike again, I might buy it back for up to $200-400 more than I sold it for to get it back...... I sold it for way too cheap when I got rid of it, but I needed the money at the time.
