    JAVO - I meant to say thanks for mentioning the priming of the filter! That's a necessary step in an oil change!

    I know! It's like trying to pick between two equally awesome pairs of hot shoes. I get it. You should see me at a car show. I'm pointing and shouting 'I want that!' ad nauseum.

    Ok, let's narrow it down... your preferences for:

    1. Fuel economy - how much will you budget for petrol?

    2. Breakdown repairs - how much are you willing to spend on repairs? Some manufacturers cost more to fix than others, like Chevy vs Ford. Ford will always be more pricey to fix, but Mopar will be pricier still.

    3. Insurance costs - how much are you willing to pay for insurance? Some cars with higher safety ratings will be much cheaper to insure.

    4. Size - Does it really have to have that extra bathroom? Really?

    It has to be green, and fun, that's all I know.
    Werd! Green is the new black. Or something.

    Oh my! That sounds like a lot of work! All that planning and budgeting....I usually just buy something on a whim. I was thinking Japanese or German.
    It can have a short wheel-base (only me and my junk to cart around) but I like good clearance and lots of torque + 4wd (you never know when you might want to toe a tree).

    That's essentially what I did. Found a black Audi, drove it for 5 minutes, and said "I'll put down a deposit!"

    Researched it afterwards, though.

    Hey, I won't have you disparaging on the Scarecrow. He was hott.

    And since this thread is such a success, I'll now be taking applications for the betrothal of Pink. I'm not interested in personal character really. Just sacks and sacks of pesos.

    What you've just defined...is basically a Jeep Wrangler. (Probably not what you actually want, but in hardtop, the new ones aren't half bad for normal use...)

    Current model if you want more comfort/practicality, but still probably the most useful off-road vehicle in existance, except for an older Jeep...

    YJ (1987-1995) if you don't care about the back seat being able to hold people comfortably or about road noise. This is close to the ultimate off-road vehicle. (minor modifications, and it is.). Hell, if you're bored...go find an empty parking lot, and start punting shopping carts. (*cough* I might have done this.) The front bumper is a solid piece of steel u-channel, it's pretty much impossible to dent or damage.

    Oh my. I drove a YJ for years and loved it. Best off-roading vehicle I have played with yet. Hated it in the winter though, and twisty highway driving.

You learn the basics of maneuvers required for safe riding - among other things - and riding is similar to driving in one respect (I personally think): if you are a competent driver/rider, it is simply a matter of adjusting to the specific car/bike ye're riding, rather than bikes having vastly different required skill sets to operate. Same basic tools, but different engine size and maneuvering ability, etc.

    It's also quite possible that you already know this, so to actually answer your query: I was on a Honda 250cc something or other cruiser style. It looked "purdy" and was a stable enough ride.

    As for figuring out what kind you want to buy - what do you want to do with your bike? Ride fast on the weekend for fun? Commute? Take trips cross country trips on practically two tanks of gas? Ninjas are fun, reliable, and one of the very best beginner bikes, but your preferred riding style is what's most important, and the class can help you figure that out.

    VROOM VROOM.
    Yeah, I only expect the class to teach me the basics so I can get my license. Otherwise, I'm going to spend a lot of time on whatever bike I get just doing handling/braking/goofing around in parking lots/neighborhoods to cement my skills.

    If I can get an idea of what will work for me from the class though, that'd be nice.

    Ha, the thing is, I have no idea what I want to do with my bike. I want something I can commute on, maybe carry a few groceries (or more), is nimble, handles well, is quick, is comfortable, gets good gas mileage, looks "nice" (as if that means anything objectively) and isn't annoyingly loud.

    Basically, I want a bunch of contradictions.



    Thanks!
    Don't know how much it'll bend til it breaks.

    When is a green car not a green car?

    When it's a Jeep!

    (I did always secretly want one though...)

    That is not all contradictory... the only parts that contradict each other a bit is that you want something nimble and that handles well but still has a lot of storage? =P It'll store plenty of groceries... if you wear a backpack. *hides smile*

    But I took my first ride on my motorcycle today! It was fun. I can't wait till I can do it in a fully legal fashion (my non-paper license has not arrived in the mail yet).

    In terms of mileage, if you get one of the smaller bikes (i.e. 250cc) the mileage is guaranteed to be fantastic (~65-70 mpg). Even the 600cc+ ones are still good... one really doesn't need more than that to start out with. (Apologies Pink, I know this is slightly off-topic. Just had to share.)
