u guys kill me with kanotuna jokes, i had a 98 750 "kanotuna" (the price was right the time) it isnt as bad as yall say, it def will not throw u off if u flick the throttle, its an ok bike to start out on (kinda heavy) especially knowing that most SS owners are riding over thier head or "posing" with a "1000", get an older used bike dude, u will learn on it and u wont feel as bad when u drop it

if ur worried what ppl will say about u, then u prolly shouldnt get a bike for poser points

Take the MSF, and get whatever ur gonna be cool on for the next 2-3 yrs, my bet it's the GSXR 750. There isn't much difference between bikes, 2 me that is, except for on the higher end, which u won't be seeing for a little while anyway.

Just my .02!!!

There are 100 times as many people (at least) who don't end up like you, that start off on something like the 750 and end up dead....

Scrap both of them and find yourself a CBR 600f3 or f4i. I wish I still had mine. I loved that bike.

i think the difference here is a guy will push and do stupid stuff to show off. A chic will ride within her limits until she is comfortable.

haha, i dont know u, but many ppl make this statement true, i know alot of them, a 600 has plenty of "powa" and i agree with ed, this is his first bike not his last, i went from the kanotuna to the r6 and then i got the Shawk (it doesnt run at the moment), on the tuna before i sold it, i could barely(sp) get the front a foot off the ground, on the r6 that comes up with out trying hard, some ppl can barely walk much less control a SS 1000 its a "mildly tuned race bike"
on that note i would pose a 07 1000 repsol haha

I'm an ok rider as far as i'm concerned. On a good day I can keep up with the big boys! I felt I ran my course with my 750, had it for 3yrs and upped to the gsxr 1000. Which A LOT of people tell me is too much for a chic, WHATEVA!!!!

I ride it within MY limits just like I did with the 750. My problem is I still fear my bike, so sometimes my head gets in the way of me riding to crazy, but I'd still fear any bike I have 750 or 1000, that's just me!!

I had an 88 Kan o Tuna as a first bike....it was a great learner....not the power you see in the sportbike category, but enough for me to learn on. I paid 1400 for it back in 97 or 98, rode it for 2 years (hint-I didn't get completely tired of it after one month), put 15K on it, dropped it mildly twice, crashed at 60 mph once, and then sold it for 900 bucks....it was a good bike for me, but let me warn ya....you'll catch for owning a can o tuna as long as you have it and they are fairly hard to get rid on the market as no one seems to really care for them.

We can round and round but the fact is he started a thread and not given us any more info to base an opinion on. We still don't know wether he has exp. or not.

I heard that busas are good starter bikes. Why start at 750? 1300 FTW

I know a couple of guys who started on one.

*sigh*

Idiots. Albeit, more power to them. I'd do the same thing if I could afford a Lamborghini. Buy the best out there despite my experience. It's what I've always done although not what I preach.

guys guys I was just joking :P

well usually if you have experience on a bike you won't really need advice on getting a gixxer/katana. That's a somewhat obvious comparason for someone who's ridden before. maybe i'm wrong though
