Nobody on here called you stupid. Everybody just said a liter bike is a lot for a beginner. I'm a little surprised that they all insisted on you getting a 600 SS, because most of the noob threads are full of "buy a used 250 or 500".

Welcome to it...

A lot of us have been around a while and know what we're talking about. But it all comes down to buying what you want and what you're comfortable on. More importantly than your bike is your gear. Buy a helmet, jacket, boots, knee pads, and gloves (at the very least) and WEAR them.

ATGATT <-- learn it and live by it.

Also, go to www.ride2die.com <-- It's a gruesome website all about motorcycles and safety.

It's a dangerous sport and we're here because we love it and we live it, and we want to be here to enjoy it for a very long time.

Don't do it because it's cool or your friends are doing it. Wear your gear regardless of what others are doing. And the most important thing about motorcycling (IMO) is LEAVE YOUR EGO AT HOME.

Enjoy!

Welcome to MH

Bottom line, it doesnít really matter the size of the bike

Itís all about personality & attitude

Good luck on whatever you get.

Gear up
Respect the bike
Always be aware of your surroundingsí

its possible to kill someone with a .22Lr. Its a fuckload easier with a .45 ACP.



I think this is a very valid comparison.

lol, no one's calling you stupid. Noob at most. People are just looking out for you. It's easy to say you'll be able to practice self-control and finess, and it's a completely different thing to actually apply it. All we're saying is a 1000cc super sport is a LOT of bike...a 600cc super sport is still a lot of bike...and it might do you better to start smaller to learn the mechanics of riding before moving to something with that much power. Ultimately, you're going to decide what's best for you, and you're going to do what you want. People around here are truely trying to give you constructive advice and look out for your best interests. Sometimes that advice isn't always what you want to hear. We're not saying it can't be done, but most kids don't learn to drive in an f1 car. Most pilots don't learn in fighter jets. You get the point.

it's true. I was using symbolism and metaphors. Pay close attention and you'll pick up on it.
