What bike to get...
So my roomate used to be totally against bikes, but now that mine is in the garage all the time, i am wanting to buy something for him that he can learn on. He has never driven anything with a clutch, and doesnt evem really understand the concept, so i am looking for something that he could just learn the basics of riding, and the extent he would probably ever ride would be around the neighborhood and possibly on main roads for short distances. I dont really want to spend a ton of money (Less than $1000) and would prefer something beat up or something that i wont lose a ton on if he crashed it a few times or whatever. The only real cheap bikes i know of are ninja 250's, so trying to get ideas i can look for for something cheap for him.
Any ideas are appreciated.
