Cost of ownership question.

I am planning on purchasing a motorcycle pretty soon. I checked insurance prices and bike prices. Basically, I would be paying 400 a month just for the bike and insurance. How much on average do you guys spend on your bikes and how much should I expect to be paying on top of that 400 I am already going to have to spend? What would be the average amount you spend on gas a week too?

course = $700 - BC Safety Council
bike = 3200 - '99 GS500
insurance = 300 (basic + theft/fire) x 4 mos
gear = ~1000 (helmet/jacket/boots/gloves/pants - i went overboard w/helmet
repairs = 400 (carbs cleaned, tune-up etc - bike was sitting for a while)

I think that about covers it for my first season. Phew.
