[QUOTE=insanity_calls;3627817]Thank you ^_^ I really am leaning towards the 600


I wouldnt do that 600 ss bike dislike mistakes and mistakes are nessisary to learn To Ride well. Some can swing it but they usually struggle to learn how to ride well cuz their afraid of the bike stomping there when they up.
Very few can get on a 600 and do well maybe ur one but i doubt it.

I know i defiantly wasn't one i cant imagine learning on my beautiful triumph

A person can learn on ANY bike whether its a 250 or the ZX14. You must learn to RESPECT you bike. NEVER push it beyond what you are comfy with. I've had two friends that started on 1000s. They're fine! Remember,once again, it's bout respecting your ride! But 600cc or less is definitely recommended!

I'm pretty tall 5'10 and I've day on one and it's pretty comfortable height position.

R-E-S-P-E-C-T it means a lot to me, and I know I can handle a 600. Ive ridden on a bike bigger than that and I did pretty well, I know it's a lot more to take into caution but I know me and I know what I can handle.

I didn't repost that quote . I was going to respond but then my phone froze up and I had to refresh the page and I guess these iPhone 5s have a mind of thier own . Either way the guy who posted above is right about respecting the machine, regardless of what size engine it is. Also I didn't ask insanity her height before I mentioned the lowering of the bike . Seeing as how she's taller than me then she should have no problem on a stock 600

I disagree with the respect . just learn to ride so ur not the bikes .
the respect u guys are talking about would be respect out of fear of the bike killing u. but its ur choice. turbo busa is also great starter bike

Trust me, I'm not about to bow down to something that can kill me. Because everything and anything is a potential death scenario. I'm going to learn it properly, I'm not afraid of it as I once was.

Let me start by saying that i learned on a 70cc enduro bike back in the days and it has helped me a lot to gradually increase the displacement of the bike.

Now there are 2 types of riding, one is commuting and one is weekend back road riding.

For commuting..... any bike will do, all you need to do is to pay attention to your surrounding because chances are you will only be riding at 30% of what your bike can do and you are more focused on not getting run over by the cagers than anything else, maybe open it up once in a while but that doesnt take any skills at all, it is all 100% on the motor.

Now weekend and back road riding is a different style, where your skill levels comes first and then the size of the motor, i have seen many 600cc bikes go faster than liter bikes out there, it is a whole new playground, if back road riding is your type of riding then i would highly recommend a 250 and that way get a better feel of the bike and practice without having the extra weight and hp to interfere in your learning process, i have seen too many riders go down that should have started on 250s but they let their ego choose a bigger bike just because they look cooler on it.
