Dave, Thanks for the advice, I am planning to get a low powered bike , less than 600CC. My primary use would be to drive around the suburb and occasional trip on the highway to NY City ( 30 miles on I87 )

I registered for a MSF course to get the License and also get a refersher training in a safe enviornment. It's a long time since i rode a bike, i definitely need some training before i hit the roads..

I am leaning towards dual sport bikes as they would suit my needs and they look and feel similar to the low powered bikes i drove before

hunting craigslist for a decent second hand bike

Some options to look at:
Suzuki DRZ400 dual-sport
Suzuki SV650 (it's a V-Twin, not a *whole* lot of power but great overall 'standard' style bikes that can do it all).
