First off before buying any bike I'd say take the MSF coarse. That way you can find out how comfortable you are in riding solo.

Second if you feel you have to get a 600, as a first rider too, go with the Suzuki. My first bike ever was a 750 and I'll give this to Suzuki, on the power mode selector. I believe the 600's also come with this, and it helps a ton in learning your bike. Learn in "C" mode which I've been told puts the engine at about 65% hp.

You yourself know what your maturity level is. Don't get something just to "keep up" and end up having more bike than you feel comfortable with.

I agree with Awesome Cycles being the best that I've heard. It's definitely worth the money you spend, and by passing the course you can get the riding part of the licensing process waived, which is a pain. I started on a 600 and it's not bad as long as you resist the urge to keep twisting that throttle...but that's easier said than done.

OH, and Welcome!

No I don't want a 600 just to "keep up" ... I guess cuz I rode on my bf 600 before I feel like I might be able to handle my own, but I guess I'll just to take the course then decide what might be best for me.. But thanks everyone for the advice
