New Biker, help choosing Bike

Hello friends,

So for the past few months I have been thinking over buying a bike and getting into this lifestyle, I am planning on taking some classes to learn to ride better and after that buying a used bike as a first approach. I have several options at hand and would like to know which to choose based on your expertise, any comments are very well appreciated!

1. Yamaha Xvs950 Bolt 2015
2. Harley Davison Sposter 1200 2014.
3. Honda Shadow Vt750 2009
4. Harley-davidson Iron 883 2013.
5. Harley Davidson Sportster 1200 T Custom 2014
6. Harley DYNA LOW RIDER 2003
7. Kawasaki VULCAN CLASSIC 900 2015

I'll second the Dyna. They're probably a good investment these days.
I like carbs on my bikes. I'd look for an older evo bike with low miles.
There ain't nothing like a friend, that can tell you your just pissin in the wind.

I am thinking about another Yamaha Road Star, One of the best v twins on the market..
and you can find them cheap, my last one I found for $2000..wish I still had it..too bad the jap.
styling is behind the americans..They really need some customizing..still look like godzilla..
They almost sound like the harley, but you can still detect the slight difference between the 2 valves
Harley and 4 valves Yamaha..
