either one. im just wanting to get on 2 wheels for right now.

i would really like a late 70s yamaha SR500 or the like. something that can handle the back roads good but still be polished up for friday night.

but im not picky

How about a 1974 (I think) Yamaha 125? Gears are stripped but everything else is good, well as good as it can be for sitting for a long time. :bounce:

not really wanting a street bike. i did enough crazy shit when i had my infiniti g35 coupe last year at 18 y/o. i would probably scare myself with that bike too much. :laughing:
