new

Hello I'm new to the forum, I don't have a bike yet but plan to get one as soon as my car is paid off! I figured I join now and start learning what I can as other forums have been extremely helpful...

I'm thinking I want 07+ Honda CBS 600 rr.. I've heard multiple ppl tell me its to much bike for a noob but Idk. Anything less seems like a waste, anyways interested in opinions on my bike choice, also interested in any other useful forums

Thanks, hope its no issue that I don't have a bike yet.

Welcome,

Think you oughtta buy full gear and take MSF for starters...

Then get a 250, Ninja 650 or SV650 to learn on. You can survive a 600 but why only boast you survived when you can actually learn to ride first.

Thanks for the welcomes, will definitely start piecing together a full set of gear... still torn on bike. Good point about learning to ride rather than merely surviving.. is it that much harder to learn on. Or am I just alot more likely to kill/ hurt myself on something more powerful

Welcome to pure awesomeness

I though about a 250 but hear so much you get bored after several month = waste of money. so pumped up to a 600. If you pick it up quick then you should have no prob.
