hello all

I am more of a car guy, but moving into bikes finally. I've riden dirtbikes my entire life, a bonus of growing up on a 1000+ acre ranch with access to unlimited trails and roads

The only other streetbikes I've ridden are a buddies '00 600f4 and a menangerie of enduros and older heavy streetbikes, the names escape me.

Just looking for something cheap to hold me over until I get comfortable riding on the road and in the city. Something with decent capabilities that won't break the bank (<$2000 hopefully) and that can endure a drop or two (which we all know will happen to a new rider, no matter what).

So, let me know what's available, or another source to look into.
