It's a bad time of year to buy. I do most of my buying Dec-Feb.

I live in Ohio, right outside of Akron.

I know its a bad time of the year to buy. I've been wanting a project moped. But, people want $200-$400 for theirs that doesn't even run. When right before winter I can get a running one that is at least 10 years newer for $400.

When you get shopping look at calling Foremost Insurance 800-527-3905 and get your quote. You should roll around for about $200 annual with all the bells n whistles or about $75 for liability.

My car insurance (on a 2003 BMW 325i) is about $800-900/yr. For full coverage, high limits, and low deductible (i.e. the same coverage as on my car) I was quoted $470/yr for a new Honda Shadow 750 Aero. I was told that an older bike would be less (possibly substantially less), especially if I went with one that I pay cash for and get liability only. That is through State Farm.

To answer your questioon: Yes there will be a price difference between a new bike vs a old one. I will also recomend as other people have to start out with a used bike. I remember when I got my first moped years ago, and the reason why I recomend getting the older one is because things happen, you get scratches and you might even fall, all that doesnt matter that much if its a cheap used one
