welcome..
my personal advice is...
save up money.. take MSF, buy gear, and find a bike that you will be comfortable with. Just because it's pretty doesn't mean it's the one for you. GSXR's and Ninjas are fast. Yamaha's are technology loaded, Hondas are reliable and bulletproof for the most part.

Yamaha also sit more aggressive, Honda is very comfortable.. even down to the stock seat padding and seating position.

Doesn't mattery which bike you pick really... it's about how you respect it. DO keep in mind if you get a supersport 600cc or higher, you need to really really fine tune your skills as a rider. because they will make you pay for each mistake you give it. If all else fails and you panic, grab the clutch and steer away from harm. GL, please be safe and respectful on the road. Not a lot of vehicles out there would lose in a collision vs a bike.
