    First off WELCOME ABOARD <----standard greeting.

    For $1500 you had better forget about the sportbike idea right now. That amount of cash will barely buy you a mid 80's standard in half decent shape these days. And also forget about anything that is super cheap that "just needs a little work". I've seen my share of these and what starts out cheap ends up being a $3500 motorcycle at minimum. And add lots more to that if you can't do your own work on everything.

    Sorry to burst your bubble but that's the situation around the lower mainland these days. Keep saving and don't forget that you need to budget for gear and training as well as the bike.
    A backyard mechanic without a service manual is just like a hooker without a lamp pole.... they are both in the dark.

    Nothing Right Now
    I say start saving first. Motorcycle courses will cost you $600.00 or so. Then you'll want to get the proper gear too. So start saving now, get your license first if you don't have one yet. Then look around for bikes.
    You are born. And you die. And if you are very lucky in between you get to ride motorcycles!
