depending on how new you are to riding....it would be more than you would want if you've never operated any kind of motobike but if you have a decent amount of dirt bike expirence and self control you'll be ok.

Take MSF, but also find a parking lot to do the MSF exersizes with on your bike to get comfy with it before you ride out on the street too much. Gear up and welcom to MH.

90% of people will tell you it is too much bike and it is if you are not already completly comftorble with operating all aspects of a motocycle. Your attention cannot be divided between operating the bike and paying attention to traffic around you.

I read over the fact that your 19 ready to get after it. Just be really carefull on the street,...you have'nt been driving a car long enough to be able to get a good insurance rate (not a personal slam, just statistically speaking a fact).

On the street you need to always keep your options open and have an out in every situation. Practice reading trafic patterns, anticipating what the cars are going to do and that you have an out. Expect that the cars are out to kill you becuase there's really no such thing as the fender bender on a bike. The potential for serious harm is always there even in what would have been a minor car accident. Also think of how you can postion yourself to maximize your visibility and the ablity of other divers to see you, don't ride in blind spots or next to cars at all if you can avoid it. Last comment then I'll get down from my soapbox, do not use all the throttle for at least the first 6 months, you can ride around all day at half or 3/4 throttle. So when your riding give your right wrist a break... your'll need it for other things so don't want to over work it as it is.

+1 for taking msf, youve ridden dirt bikes but street is totally different, the msf class goes over alot and is very informative and its required now if you want a license. as far as the bike being to big its probably not.. just be careful, its got a hella lot more juice than a dirtbike.
