Should I purchase my first Bike?

Hey guys and gals, I was looking for a little advice. I am new to the motorcycle world and would like some of your knowledge. One of my close friends is selling his 1997 Yamaha YZF600R and I was wondering you opinions on me buying it. It looks like brand new and has 9,053 miles on it. It has a few upgrades like a after market pipe and a few other small things. He has had the bike for ten years now and really doesn't drive it to much, and when he does he is very careful on it. So my question is it a good start out bike? I could get it for $2,000, is this a fair price? Thanks for all your help.

That doesnt seem like to bad of a price. Some might warn you that a 600 might be too big for a beginner. have you taken the MSF course?

Buy gear and WEAR IT. Helmet, jacket, gloves, boots. Ride at your own pace.

Live life with no regrets, you only get to do it once
