Help me get a bike

I am looking for a bike.

The specifics for my loan place is:

1999 and up and 3k and under would be ideal. Up to 3500 for a good deal. Cruiser do dl650. 500 cc's or over, prefer something that I wouldn't need to get a new bike to be comfortable at interstate speeds when I am ready (I am over 6 feet all and about 260 pounds). I am already looking at Craigslist,, and I live in Terre Haute, so within an hour of here is where I am looking as I am either going to have someone ride it home or trailor it home.

Thanks in advance.

If I (6'4", 225-270) were looking in that price range, I'd turn my gaze towards a KLR650 or a late model Honda Nighthawk 750. Either could have been my current ride (probably the latter, there's a Smart Buy writeup in a recent Motorcyclist mag) except a great deal on the Wee and a little extra money came into my life at the same time.

1985 Honda CB450SC (AUG04 - SEP09)
2004 Honda CN250 Helix (NOV09 - )
2006 Suzuki DL650 (MAR07 - APR15)
2014 BMW R1200GSW (APR14 - )
