Re: "WHAT NOT TO BUY"

or NOT! *A friend of mine who has never ridden anything bigger than a 250 dirtbike, and never ridden anything on the street. *Decided after see my Ninja that he was ready for a ZX-12 also. *Just because someone knows enough to talk about bikes, and can quote stats. *Doesn't mean they're not going to have remorse after climbing onto such a large bike and scaring themselves so bad that they quit riding, or worse yet they get hurt.

Re: "WHAT NOT TO BUY"

Maybe "being scared or it" is not the phrase, but "having a tremendous amount of respect for the lethality of it"
