With gas prices rising, I'm thinking about buying a motorcycle for the 3/4ths of a year I'll be able to ride it. Well, that is my justification anyways, I just really want a bike.
I'm only really looking for three things in a bike:
1. High MPG. The higher the better.
2. Able to mantain a speed of 75ish for Turnpike traffic
3. Reasonably cheap used (Hopefully I can keep this under $1200. Hopefully.)
Right now I am considering buying an old Honda CMT200T from 1981 from my friend, for about $900. Under 1400 miles on it, great condition, and never laid down. The only thing with this bike I am worried about is taking it on the Turnpike or other 65+ highways. Is that a reasonable worry? Any other bike suggestions? Thanks!
