I am taking a class to get my motorcycle endorsement this weekend. I am really excited, I have wanted to do it for years but could not because of my parents . They made the mistake of always telling me if I got a motorcycle they would stop paying my insurance, they should have said I had to move out first . To be fair I paid my insurance after university, but lacked time and knew I was heading to Russia. I kind of want to start with a street bike because I know a cruiser would be great, so for my first cheap crap bike I would rather get the one I am not positive I will like, since selling it and changing won't be a big deal. Unfortunately here highway is crucial so think I need 500cc+ which limits my options. That being said the main freeways here are flat and 60MPH so a 250cc might do it, particularly on a lighter street bike.
