    i was looking at a '84 ninja 900? anything else i should be looking in to?

    I'm looking for a toy bike for the summer (i don't care what it is as long as its reliable in great condition and fairly quick).

    Please let this thread be a joke. If not, go spend that $1000 on a motorcycle safety and instruction course, a helmet, leathers, boots, gloves, etc... and start saving for a SMALL, FIRST bike... one that you will be able to handle and won't get yourself killed on.

    900cc isn't a "toy bike".

    i have all the gear i need, safety is also a check. so now i have 1000 bucks for a bike. you guys seem to think a 900 is too big for me, how about being useful and offering me other options. and by toy bike, i mean something i don't have to care about too much.

    What gear do you have? Yes a 900 is too big, as for other opinions, get something smaller. Try to find a late 80s EX500 or GS500.
