Which bike may fit best?

What's up folks! For awhile I been researching and talking to others about my favorite bikes... Zx-6r/ZX-10r, gsxr 600/750 and down the road zx-14.

Now.. yeah I will be a beginner becuase it been minute since I rode a bike, but I was taught on a CBr 900RR Fireblade... But that was awhile back. Now I am not scared of anything, but I would like to jump on a zx-10r and ride for myself. But do I need to jump that quick or not? I know its all good to have a 600 cause I seen clips and by eye the rider can make it happened past a bigger bike. I just want more opinons

gp hit the dealerships, and see which ones you feel more comfortable on. Then go from there. As far as cc's go, a 600 will put you on your just as quick as a 1k and above will. Especially if your buying new. Its all in your right wrist, be responsible and youll be good to go, no matter which you choose.

You are doomed from the start... If I learned anything by majoring in psychology, its that virtually every person out there thinks they are special and better than everyone else. Beginners do not start on liter bikes, not to mention a 1,400cc monster. Unless you have been riding for well over a year, then you have no business riding anything bigger than a 600. But wait, you're special, go buy the ZX14.

I have done that at a few dealerships I went too. Try to feel the comfort of being on the back of one. So are you suggesting GSXR750 or 1000/CBR 1000?

You can't go wrong with a SV650 or FZ6. Plenty of power and good handling, not to mention more comfortable than a super sport.
