If that was an 07 it has 3 diff fuel maps. So it will respond like a 600 in the lowest setting. This model is actually not a bad choice for a first bike IMO. Just depends on the person. I know a guy that looped a 250 in almost the same situation. This guy was a idiot don't get me wrong. I just feel his worst choice was'nt the bike. It was the insur, no gear, and not useing the lower throttle setting, oh and no lisc

I learned on a 600, and have been pretty good on my 750. It may be a bigger bike, but it sure is better then a liter bike...and yes I am smart...thanks for noticing

The whole A,B,C stage mapping system on the suzukis seems pretty gay to me.

If i wanted to ride a 600 or 750, id buy one. I dont know, just seems like pointless equipment IMO. Anyone that buys a 1000 wants the power of the 1000. If you dont, dont buy it. Either way, no beginner should be on a 1000 on the first place. A 600 is pushing it but it can be done with both knowing your limits and taking the time to learn first in a spot OFF THE STREET and away from traffic or anything else especially if you dont even have the hang of driving it yet!! I see people that go buy a bike brand new (never rode before) and try to teach themselves in traffic.

My girl rode a GS500 about a handful of times. First actual streetbike she ever rode. She got the hang of clutching, braking and shifting and everything which she already knew from riding dirtbikes and 4 wheelers. The 500 wasnt ours, just a nice guy down the street that let her learn on it. My 636 is now her bike. I have been taking her to open parking lots around the area to let her ride it. She is doing very well but i wont let her get on the street anytime soon until i know she is completely ready and i always make her wear her gear. Im about to have her take the MSF course as well.

Hey guys this is a really BAD situation for everyone


BUT if the guy has insurance at all on anything, I believe state law REQUIRES the existing insurance to cover a new vehicle for 20 or 30? days. sure worth checking into. I got my daughters blazer covered like that when she rolled it twice, only 4 hours old.....:BangHead:

Okay now I don't agree with some of you guys about the size of the bike... I personally think that if he had a 600cc bike.. He would have done the same thing, and that's to be "throttle happy". He was an inexperienced, and should have taken a class or learn to ride from a friend. ANY friend shouldn't let a friend buy ANY bike if he doesn't know wtf he is doing. IMO.

I never got myself into any trouble on the 6 that wasn't caused by being young 'n stupid, I just wish I'd started on a bike that I could've learned more from.

How do you not like the 1000?

Torque is your friend.
