hello all!

Hello All, I just found out about this site from a rider course website. I will start riding soon after my class and license endorsement. Hope to get some good deal on the 600cc (suzuki) and meet up with new friends . Is it recommend to start out with a 600cc? I have experienced with crazy street riding in the southeast asia regions on scooters and moped, but not on a real motorcycle.

A 600 would be a good starter bike. It's the most common.
Whenever you get out you can meet us up at some of the meetups!

Welcome to MH...
If you are used to riding mopeds and scooters then i would say start out on a 250 of some sort. There is nothing wrong with the 250 bikes. They have come a long way in looks and performance. Check out the for sale section and look at some of the NINJA 250s that are for sale. Great bikes and sharp looking as well. Good luck in your venture and remember ATGATT(all the gear all the time)... Make sure you have gear when riding as well....Keep the shiny side up

Welcome
What may be a good starter bike for one may not be good for another.
You got to know your limitations and a bit about your personality
Read up on them these are not scooters
They are high;y engineered 100 HP , 150 mph screaming machines.
Articles like

May help.

Good luck - Ride safe

2 wheel toyz on spencer hwy near hwy 3 is a great place to get a good deal on all gear from helmet, jacket, gloves, and boots.

My personal opinion
Arai Shoei for best helmets
HJC affordable

Joe Rocket Alpinestars for jackets
Icon is mostly junk

Gloves, go for the best fit I think. You can try different brands at Cycle Gear then order with 2 wheel toyz or another MH sponsor.

Boots
Sidi are just the best
Heard really great things about alpinestars as well

hahaha, i think diff ppl prefer diff bike. Personally I like the yamahas, but i'm not that tall (only 5'5'') so imma just go with the smaller bike to get used to it first. I respect all motorcycle riders, don't matter what they ride.
