Hello

Newbie here.
There is a lot of great info here and I intend to use the search function as much as I can. I will probably still ask some dumb and repetitive questions just like every other new user.

A little about me:
I have minimal riding experience. Bought a z1000 about a year ago and crash it because of minimal experience in throttle control. I whiskey throttled it and the bike did a 180* and I flew off with a few torn acl's and some other damage. Looking to get on another bike now so I thought I would research it more this time.
I know dumb person buying a liter bike. I deserve it. (I have ridden prior to the z1000)

Looks like a good community with interesting characters.

There are a handful of 250s and 300s for sale on this forum currently. Seems that would be a good place to start for you.

I plan on making many track days and signing up for ridesmart.
Currently I'm looking for something under a liter. Like a ducati streetfighter.
Ill be in a body bag before I buy a <600cc bike.

That sounds like an extremely intelligent and responsible statement and I'm sure that your ego will not cause you to wreck your like last time.

Seriously though, best of luck to you. Be safe.

I actually only said that because I know most people are dead set that if I ride anything other than <600 then I will kill myself. I am not new on motorcycles but newer. I am 29 and have a respect for them and their power.

Welcome. Start off on a lower cc bike, learn the ins and outs of it: handling, noob mistakes, etc. Once you've accomplished that, you can work your way up.

This is a really good thread, read through it.
http://www.motohouston.com/forums/sh...ght=first+bike

Page 3 post #47 has a really good write up
