650 is a good bike to start with. 250 or 300 is ok too. I think lone star collage has a mfs course. Oh and welcome

Welcome. I took class with Awesome Cycles and they were great.

I would say 650...something with higher bars. I have a Yamaha FZ6R for sale if you are interested. Don't remember the exact miles and year but just contact me.

Again Welcome to the forum!

Im your size and a 650 ninja was very comfortable for me. I ended up going with the sv 650 because i'd heard good things about them. Out of the two the riding position on the ninja was much more laid back.

I did mine at awesome cycles and would reccomend them without hesitation. I have no complaints whatsoever

Hello and Welcome to MH.
I'm just as tall and weight the same as you.
I love my GSXR600.
Lots of power and light enough to let me ride for long periods of time.
I thought about moving up to a liter bike but it so forgiven...
That's my 0.2 cents

Welcome. My favorite bike so far has been the 05 and 08 r6 but for street and your size may be uncomfortable. I think fz6r or 650 something like what the other guys are recommended would nice
