For my motorcycle peeps, looking to buy a beginner bike. Looking at either the Harley Davidson Iron 883 or the Honda Shadow Phantom. Any insight would be great!

I think those are possible for beginners. At your stage, I would focus on just learning to ride. Keep in mind the weight of the bike and cc when buying. As a beginner, I preferred 500cc or less. Personally, I had a Kawasaki ninja 500r, which was 500cc and only about 350 or so pounds. I just sold it 2 months ago after owning it for 11 years.

Honda Shadows are tanks. If it’s a beginner bike I would def stick with something that can take a beating. Haven’t really tried Harley’s but from what I’ve read they can be a little more finicky.

Don’t get a Harley as they’re more trouble than their worth and you’ll prob outgrow the 883. You’re dead set on a cruiser style bike ?

Just for reference - first bike was fz07, then upgraded to a fz10 and now I’m with a thurxton rs

What is a good beginner bike that can maybe have 2 people on it? Thanks for everyone’s responses

Honestly your better off buying a used bike and gaining the skills first. Riding two up is a different skill set that is built on a good fundamentals

Had my start date pushed back to 2021. I’m now considering a masters degree. Any advice if it would be helpful for consulting? And if so, would one degree be more helpful? Finance?

Would I be better off spending the next 6-9 months doing certifications (Tableau, AWS, Salesforce, Six Sigma, etc.) or learning new skills like python or SQL?

Experienced real estate investors, buying my first rental property for $168k. For primary property I know it make sense to get the lowest rate by putting down as much as possible. But for this one I'm getting 25% down at 2.875% and 20% down at 3.625% no points. Difference in downpayment is $8400. What would you do? Also going to fix it up estimated costs $15k. I'm leaning towards 20 down.
