I will say I'm kind of fond of the Suzuki Savage/S40's because I like thumpers. I'm also keeping my eyes peeled for Honda Shadows and Yamaha Viragos. Year doesn't matter too much, but condition is important. I'm not allergic to doing maintenance, but I don't want a big project.

I don't need something uber-powerful or whatever, as I'm not one of those "bigger is better" types. I know full well that a Honda Rebel 250 (or something similar) would suit my needs just fine.
Get a DR650 of KLR 650 if you like thumpers and only have 2 grand to spend. You will get far more enjoyment out of one of those IMHO. I am just biased, I hate riding on pavement and only do it when necessary. A savage is a good choice though, my cousin got one as a starter bike and is still riding it two years later, he likes it.
