Cheap Beginers Bike?

Hey

I want to get a bike for the summer, I'm not looking to spend much. (Under 2-3000). Any suggestions? All are appreciated, thanks!

Older honda f4i if you can find one cheap enough.. Maybe even an older sv 650?

You know yourself best.. If you know your way around a tight situation and have some knowledge of what to do under emergency situations on a bike i'd start with the above, if not i'd start with a more standard beginner's bike like a honda rebel or the kawi 250r.
