I have a co-worker that is looking to start riding. He has ZERO experience and a budget of ~$1500. Not looking for a jewel, just a mechanically sound street legal bike.
If anyone is upgrading this year and is looking to get rid of an old dual-sport bike, please let me know. We're in Columbus, so Barth., Brown, Morgan, Jennings, Jackson and Johnson counties would be easiest to get to.
