Ummm well i dont own a bike....Yet

Hey what sup, im Jarod. My buddy chris reffered me to this site, LOL not quite sure of his SN on here, i know he has a custom painted zx-14.

I dont own a bike yet, but looking to get one around winter time, since it seems as if they are cheaper then, But just looking into options right now. I dont have my license for motorcycle yet but plan on it. I currently drive a cammed 02 Z-28, and well i want something to have fun on, on the weekends. Ive rode my buddies zx-14 several times, i love it, but its WAY to big for me, im a fan of smaller and nimbler bikes.

Well theres my intro....Whats up...

Also if we have any car fans here, check us out at shiftslow.com.

Welcome!

Make sure you check out MSF course info, it will be beneficial to you even cost-wise in the end. I am also semi bike-less right now. Rebuilding a junker to get back to riding.


oh and FIRST, ******.

Ah, well that only happens to be the most debated topic here on the boards.

To summarize it for you:
Can you start out on a 600 and survive just fine? Yes.
Should you do it? No, probably not. In fact, don't.

If you want a full explanation, look here http://motohouston.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2576

Buying a busa for your first bike, however, will give you extra poser points!
