personally, my first street bike was a v-twin 1000cc (superhawk) i loved the shiit out of it, but i'll admit it was a little to much for me, i woulda have been better off starting on a 600 (been ridin since i was 12) but if i had no exp. at all, i would have gone with a 500 or smaller.

yes, but had you bought a ninja 500 as your first bike, you would have had JUST as much fun........... Trust me.

and as far as bikerboyz is concerend, you know nothing about riding.

I started off on a 1991 kawasaki 550 I LOVED THE POWER, but it was easier to handle than the newer supersports. ALOT cheaper, and if I dropped it , It wouldnt cost me an arm and a leg like the 06 R6.

Ive been riding for 5 yrs now, Im not what I would call an "experienced rider" but I have a of alot more time and miles under my belt than you. Bikes Ive owned in order.....

1990 Kawi 550
1988 gsxr 750
1998 CBR 900rr .......and then after having the 900 we picked up a 500r ITS An AWSOME BIKE.... Great bike to ride around town on, great gas milage and ann overall blast to ride.

Ive sold my 900rr in order to buy a new bike........

so, bikerboyz, walk before you run, and learn how to change oil before you give out bike advice.

LMAO..... OWNED... i say go with a used bike.. im not going to say 250 OR 500.. PARTS ARE EXPENSIVE... and LABOR IS WORSE... so i say buy some tools and learn to fix your own unlike alot of the members here... between tires and oil changes alone it can cost you 300 a month to keep the running..

You can start with any of the 600s but you need to crawl before you walk. I started with a ZX6 and bought a ZX9 1 month later but it all depends on you they all go fast if you learn your bike and make it perform for you. Some peeps go big from the jump. But choose within your ability!

I'm no pro by far but I did start on a 600cc bike "94 cbr F2" and worked my way through the ranks gaining experience and more power with each bike. 5 bikes later 4 of which was 600cc bikes I"m still learing every time I get on the bike. Just start slow and don't be in a hurry to look so cool with all the other guys that "think" they know everything there is to know about riding.
I now own a 2005 R1 and yes I'm learning all over again after 16 years of riding.
While your looking at all the cool bikes check out all the cool gear that will save your when you crash the first time. Helmet, gloves, 1 or 2 piece suit,boots, Sorry to say but sooner or later you will need it.

man his bikes are nice. the yellow r6 was sick until it got wreck. but if i have like 28938398 years of experiences i would love to get the r1 also.
anyway. of all the bike listed up there. the f4i would be the best choices. i know no matter what we all say, in the end it's his choice to choose. either become a better rider, get more confident, etc for starting with a 250 or he can be come "COOL" and get a 600+...
i started with a r6, then went to f4i, then back to r6, and now 600rr and a newer f4i. if i have extra money right now, i would go get a 250 and ride it. so then i get still have my 600rr and have the 250

i think i change my mind..i really do respect bikerboyz and his experience

"need some one who knows how to change there oil and filter will pay them 35 dollars to come out in the south west houston make quick money i got all the oil and filter allready just need someone to put it on for me thanks"

"im down to go i know what to look for into buy a bike just the basic shittt because you really cant take someone word for it,let me know"

"sup people does any one know a good web site were they give you the prices for exhaust"

"man this bike is well worth the money bought it for $5,500 you would probaly put less than 600 dollars into it too make it like new meaning plasticsn runs and drives like a 900wow, the 900rr runs and drives like a 900??? jeez, that surprizing
not to brag but my 94 honda is in show room condition not a scratch on it thats why i was asking $4,000 dollars for it and i invested at...
part 2 Sup people selling my honda 900rr for $4,000 with 26,000 miles will post up pics later on bike has steal line brakes the whole plastics have been change to a 1998 litttle road rash but fixable nicle...

so what youre saying is that youre selling a show room condition not a scratch on it for 4000, that has a little road rash but fixable, lemme quote your own quote because you really cant take someone word for it,let me know.....

"all right when should you do a tune up on your bike like spark plugs shitt like that and when should you do all the adjustments to your bike and will it hurt it if you dont do the right adjustments when the time has come?"

"oh ok cause i just reach the 25,000 mark on my bike what adjust ments should i do"

"I got a question ok here it goes if you take off your pipe to your bike will it **** up any engine work or can you just drive it like that and it will be fine"

"sup people got a question when buying a used street bike what is the most important thangs to look for. (2) the second thang is when buying a used dirt bike what is allso the thangs you look for thanks hit me up"

"man i am so ****ing some stupid droped my bike today when i was trying to sell it i trusted this guy because he said that hes been riding for a while than i let his test drive it my gut was telling me dont let his ride it but being a nice of a guy i am i let him ride it anyways not even 2 seconds he droped it basterd so the whole point of this story is dont let know one test drive your bike unless they give you there keys to there ride i shoud of kick his "

i'm a noob.i'm straddling the fence here.i agree if you have never rode or not very good at riding to get a used older bike and take the msf.it's cheaper,and some aren't as powerful as these newer bikes.now the flip side to it is imo,how much money you have??? for one,i'm not trying to buy 2 bikes in less than a year. i say start on an old used 600,then up grade to a better 600 or go up to a 750 etc...this way,when you get comfortable,you are already at "stage 1" of having abike that have a little grunt and don't have to upgrade as quickly. i have an 89 gsx-r 750 and i love it,but respect it. i respect pocket bikes. i work in the e.r. and for ems.i've seen alot of sportbike accidents,it's not the size of the bike(most times) or kind of a bike that get you hurt or killed,it's stupidity and not driving for the cager.like i tell my co-workers that think up right bikes or harleys are safer,the difference is mine have plastic and the others don't or have less.a fall is a fall is a fall.50mph on a crotch rocket is going to feel the same as 50mph on a 250 or a 500.if i had the money and/or credit,i might have gone with a 500,but i don't.so i feel i'm mature enough to know my limits and the bike limits.you can't want to do stunts and drag racing with 2weeks of seat time,but you can do safe speed limit riding.don't try to keep up with other riders or show off for females,it will get you hurt or killed.i tell this to myself everytime i'm on my bike.i take it nice and easy.you don't have to twist the throttle hard. i think maturity and physical aspects play a big part on what size bike you start on.i'm done babbling.
