private seller or dealership

Hi, I'm a new rider in the market for my first bike. As much as I would like a 300r, I decided on the 250 for budget reasons. Its hard to find people selling 300s under $4000. Anyway, I've been scouring around craigslist looking for bikes and have found a few. I've checked our a couple of them, but as a new rider who has no rider friends, ive been finding difficult to bite the bullet. I'm tempted to go the used dealership route though their prices are higher up front. Curious to know your opinions and advice on this. Help is appreciated.

Personally I would find a nice low miles machine that hasn't been crashed, from a private seller. I Know around my area there are quit a few available. These seem like pretty sound little bikes, If it starts well from dead cold and runs and sounds good you'll most likely end up with nice little bike for a good amount less than you'd pay from a dealer. And if it would need some maintenance work or tuning you'll still have some $$ to work with. JMOA
