i just started riding about 2 months ago and was also faced with the delema as to what kind of bike to start with. i chose an 02 GSX-R 750. i bought one that has been laid down cause its almost inevidable, your going to drop the thing sooner or later. i've droped it a couple times and when it happens, i just step back and laugh at the stupid thing. a friend of mine started riding about a month after me and he decided to go do it baller style and buy a new cbr600. well last week he was backing up and lost his footing and droped it. now had he bought a older bike or something already droped, he wouldn't have cared it but instead he devalued his bike by $1,000. as for engine displacement, i would say get whatever size you feel confidet about be it a 250 or a liter bike. as long as your not a complete dumb and you can keep your hand out of the throttle, you should be fine. the only experience i had with 2 wheels is i rode dirtbikes a little growing up and i got 2 mile standups down on my gixxer after only about a week. my girls dad bought a ninja 250 for his girlfriend and she say it takes all that things got just to keep up with traffic. only thing i can suggest is ride some friends bikes and see which one you feel comfortable with. just know your riding capabilities and don't be in a rush to acceed them. good luck and be safe out there homie.

you should ride a 250 for a few hours, guarantee you'll have fun fckin around on it. especially since theres no weight to slow down coming into turns, you can just lean it over, and take the corner at your choice speed.. plus its fun to whoolie them and watch people go "WTF did he just stand up that ninja250!??!!"

I dont know either.. They are fun to play around on, but i guess they would rather have a fuel injected bike
