    Ninja twofiddy, or an ex500. Pick em up used on craigslist for 2-4K. Don't worry about scratches--you're going to drop it. Put your extra money into good gear and training. Take the MSF course before you buy anything, and bring a biker friend with you to check out the bike you want. If you buy from an individual, don't feel bad asking them to take it to a shop for inspection. Should only run $100 and it can save a ton of hassle.

    Gsx-R1000.......all the way....If it is your first bike start with the GSX-R600 and you can move up to the 1000 or the Hayabusa both of which are class leading award wining AMA bikes.....and used it a great way to get one even more affordable.....good luck and Cheers!

    hotredice saidwhat type of street bike should I get for under $30,000 ?

    Street bike is a vague term, other than meaning not an off-road bike. It could be a boulevard cruiser, or a sport tourer, a crotch rocket or a huge cross-country barge. All of which I've owned.

    So what kind of riding do you want to do? And how far? I've ridden bikes right where you live, loved the road over US 2 into Leavenworth. I prefer a fast road bike, but not a crotch rocket, the crouch a bit uncomfortable for my old body.

    We need more information from you. And under $30k is easy, you can get great bikes for half that.

    There's only two bikes i'd ever buy personally.. And honestly, this kind of quesiton is going to boil down to your own personal preference. What kind of gear do you like, how you like to be positioned on the bike. Distance you want to drive that will give you the most comfort for you.. etc.

    I'm looking to get the Honda CBR 250 some time next year. Glad Honda finally brought it over to the States. Their other small displacement bike (Rebel) is really dated.

    Not sure about other regions, but here in the LA area, classic cafe racer type bikes are en vogue. I'm seeing more of them on the road lately.

    Man I really miss my bikes. My first was a 750 Katana the 2nd a Ninja. I hope to get another street bike late next year.

    I had my bro teach me how to ride and took my test at the DMV to save on the cost of the course. In California you have 1 attempt to stall or put your foot down. There are people eating and watching you do figure 8's and go through cones (It's right in front of the DMV). Thank god I passed on my 2nd attempt and love having my motorcycle license.

    Safe riding and watch those drivers out there.

    You live in one of the greatest parts of the country for cruising, deserts,mountains etc. .. Depends on what you like I guess city or hiway cruising. Me I've always liked highway cruising and did a lot of it around Washing/Oregon/BC on my Goldwings. You can go all day and never feel worn out from being bashed around by the wind.
