New Fruit bag here

Wahdup Ladies and Gent's. I'm trying to pick up my OWN first bike this weekend. I have a few bike's i'm looking into. I've rode before, about 7-8yrs ago. Mostly friends bikes but never my own. I'm a pretty big fellow so anyone have some suggestions at what bike to look into. I've been thinking about a 600. I found a few CBR's but nothing local so i'm still looking. I'm 6'1 about 240-50ish. Yeah I know, fat man = cruiser but I don't want one.

TIA!!!

I guess it's better to have your fruit bag hanging around here instead of your teabag.

A 600 is plenty enough to haul your fruit bag around:laughing6 j/jkng or not
A 600 will be plenty of bike for you especially since you never really owned one. Before any one else flames you...MSF????:icon_bigg

How much actual time on a bike? What type of bike was it.
My advice is to treat yourself as a beginner and dont get caught up in all the squid hype and get a bike that your not ready for. You are gonna hear a lot of talking from the teen group here but try to ignore it. Its your and not theirs that will be on the bike. Just ask around and get more info. Be an educated buyer and not an impulse buyer.

And WELCOME TO THE SITE!!!!

lol, I took the MSF course in NY when I got my lis. I lost count on actual ride hours but it was a majority of the summer. I rode on a ninja/gix 600 and a cbr 600...Haven't rode in awhile, but I will indeed be looking into taking the MSF course here.

I found a 99 f4 cbr 600 with minor scratchs new back tire and a few other things for under $4k. You guys think it's a reasonable price?

Maybe towards the end of the summer i'd take a jump into a 750 or a busa, but not untill I've sharpened up my riding skills.

Rob. You thinking that bike isn't worth the money?

I'd stick to the 600 if your just starting back up.

I know someone selling an 01 F4I with under 7k miles. Shoot me a PM if you want his number and you can get more info from him.

Stick with a 600, The actual physical size of a sport style bike doesnt change munch even with larger engine displacement. For your frame which is close to mine though lighter (Im 6' 270) Id go with a good standard. The Honda 599, Yamaha FZ6, Kawasaki 650 Ninja or something along the lines. You really couldnt go wrong with a SV650 though it may be a bit small for you.

looks cool. I'm telling you, your size aint got to do with it. And dont listen to bikerboyz. His name says it all..lol price on that bike is just a little high. Most bikes are gonna run from 3 - 5 grand depending on a bunch of different factors..Offer 3500.

I offered 3300 which he excepted. It's just to find a trailer to get it. I'm not worrying about what bike said. It's my life in the end not his.

thx guys...
