I am looking at a 2000 Honda cr500 for $1800.
I have been riding for a while now, starting off on a 125 ( I have a ktm 125 exc) and have since rode my buddies Kawasaki 250. I am just wondering if a 500 is too much bike for me, but it seems like too good of a deal to pass up. (I felt pretty comfortable on the 250)

thanks for the input everyone.

dave2005, i would say buy it. Thats a great deal. Even if it is too much power then you could always turn around and sell it.
