[QUOTE=Squid Spawn;3620474]Yep, a older used 600 or maybe even a new one?! I think you should consider this because you WILL outgrow a 250-300 really fast!

If you need to validate how big your testicles by getting a bigger bike... an SV is a great learner bike... 70 hp of v-twin smoothness and they crash really well and keep ticking...

Guys in 1000cc super bikes couldn't catch me...until we hit really LONG straights. I don't hate 250s, I had a Rebel 250 for years! Saw your vid a while back cuong, like I said..in the right hands! Btw: how did it show me saying liar, I didn't say that, cuong did! Lol

CBR250R ABS,
or
Ninja 300 ABS,
or
CB/CBR 500 ABS,

depending on your budget. Don't go for a large displacement so that you can learn proper throttle control, especially in the turns, and do go for an ABS to learn braking full-force from the beginning without being afraid of locking the rear wheel. Make things easier for yourself so that you can dedicate more attention to learning and practicing the proper techniques without pressure. Read Proficient Motorcycling and any other books you can find.

Yeah an SV with a pipe sounds like music.. I never get tired of the deep sound of it.

Well a parallel twin doesn't sound like a V-twin... it sounds wimpy.

I wouldn't do the 250, the new Ninja 300 with fuel injection instead. More like a real bike.

Just get a 600 and lower it 2 inches , then you won't have height issues and your feet being flat on the ground when you come to a stop will also give you more stability and confidence

Ok it's cool to get a bike lowered BUT handling suffers drastically. If you do it, Insanity, I suggest you lower it UNTIL you get real comfortable then slowly ease it back up little by little til you get to the stock height.
