I'm looking at buying a Yamaha V-Star 650 real soon, and I also plan on taking the MSF course. I have no expierence at all riding a motorcycle (though I can ride a bicycle fine). None of my friends have bikes either. Should I buy the bike first, or would the course expect me not to know how to ride at all? Also, I'm looking at this bike right here: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/1999...048QQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem?hash=item260031321749 Should I not buy a bike I don't see in person? I doubt I'd be able to test-ride one at a dealership, since I'm only 17. I've read reviews by other people my size/weight who say it fits them fine, though.
