Eltejano..ROFLMAO.... They are talking about a 1000cc sportbike not being a good starter bike for a beginner. Not a bike for 1000 dollars for crying out loud.:laughing6 That was starting to get really funny

A close friend of mine bought a gsxr 1000 for his first sport bike because he thought he would out grow a 600cc to fast. He died on that bike last october so I would say skip the 1000cc until you are more experienced....
