I haven't read all the responses but wanted to chime in. I am a newer motorcyclist, got my first motorcycle in 2008. I bought a Yamaha V-Star 250 which is a perfect bike to learn on. I never in a million years ever wanted to ride on a motorcycle, let alone own one, but when my husband got one, I was hooked. So that year we both got new motorcycles and I have had a blast with it.
This year I upgraded to a Yamaha V-Star 650. A little heavier then the 250 - ok, a LOT heavier - but I am doing great with it.
I say if you are interested, get a cheap used 250 somewhere. Learn how to ride and then decide if you'd like to continue. Let me tell you, it's a lot of fun.
Make sure you take the riding course. It really helps to keep you safe and learn to drive defensively.
