Need to go about 60 miles each way to college a couple of times a week (it's the only place with the classes) traveling up Hwy 101 from San Francisco, outside commute hours, starting March 1. What vehicle(s) to look for?
About $2000 max all-inclusive. Woman, 25.
Is a motorbike feasible? Non-rider at present but wanting to ride (brother had motorbikes.)
Car or bike, the $2k has to cover everything - mechanic check, brake fixup & basic roadworthiness, insurance, hat (if bike) - and have money over if possible. Vehicle needs to last four to six months minimum!
