Yes, the CBR300 would be a better choice than the 600. I say SV650 is better than all of them, as someone else said, more linear power, more forgiving if you are in the wrong gear, but you won't get "bored" for many years. Tons of them out there for cheap, lots of upgrade options, and dead nuts reliable. Still tunnel-vision fast though. You have to realize that the SV is 3 sec or so 0-60, the CBR600 is close to 2 sec. Both are faster acceleration than all but the fastest super-cars. SV runs out of breath at 130 or so, that's where the 600rr is going to stomp it at the top end. Full face helmet, over-the ankle boots, armored or leather jacket. For you go for a full leather riding suit, no reason for you not to, with that body...

We are just helping another rider out, we do it for everyone.lol

And like everyone has said, a 600 is probably not the best starter bike. The 500 and 650 class i think are a great choice. More than enough power to keep up and have fun. As for gear i dont really like Cycle Gear stuff. I just dont trust it to keep me as safe as some of the "better" brands. Some gear is still better than none though.

To be fair, Cycle Gear does sell stuff other than their house brands.

I don't know what side of town you're on, but if you're visiting the CG on 59, run next door to Mancuso and browse their gear as well. Not a huge selection, but you can try stuff on and get a better idea of what will fit and what you want. Buying from online retailers is fine, but you don't get to try anything on first. Likewise, Patrick (at Motorcycles Unlimited) and House of Paint might make you great deals on gear, but I don't remember Motorcycles Unlimited keeping a whole lot of stock, and I can't imagine HoP does either.

If you're looking at online retailers, one of my personal favorites is motorcyclegear.com . I imagine a lot of them have this same policy, but they're really easy to deal with on returns because they know that ordering online can be difficult with gear, and will give you 100% credit on returns for size. Shipping can be a PITA though, especially if dealing with something bulky like helmets.

I am biased, but something like an EX500, or the Ninja 300 is better to start with, and cheap. If you get bored then sell and upgrade. I have a SV650, it is a V-twin so it is a different behaved engine than that cbr will have. You can easily get a EX500 for less than 2k, and the Ninja 300 for less than 3.
I started on a 600 and I recommend it. Do what you feel is right for YOU.... And welcome

Trolled?, maybe... But the images match the name nonetheless. Also all the contact info goes back to the same person... Facebook picture is from a group, not an individual. If it is her, she is not ashamed of who she is and what she does since she (?) posted all the links in the forum profile. I see no secrets, misdirection here, but maybe I'm just naive.

Welcome and all that funky jazz.

I started out on a Ninja 650 last october. Depends on the rider I would say. I also got most of my gear from Revzilla.com

My sister started on a CBR600RR with no experience and had been riding it for 5 years with no problems. If you have a little self control and common sense you can ride anything. All these 250/300 comments are fine just saying that its not the only way. my first bike was a GXSR1100 and I survived.

For sure, but I believe respect for the bike, taking your time learning in a closed enviroment and self restraint are key. Most hormone ridden juniors lack one or all of these. Pretty easy to whiskey throttle a 250 or over run a turn on any bike. Is a 250 a more logical beginner bike, sure. Is it the only way, no.
