Re: New guy...

I think a R6 is too much to start with at 17, but there are no good looking bikes under 600 cc* *

Re: New guy...

I'm sure they can afford a Ducati for me, but since you guys are saying a Ducati may not be the right bike for me what do you think of a R6?
i think you should def. get the MV Agusta F4 1000

Re: New guy...

all this and other stuff make me think that there is a prety big market, for a sport bike around 300-400cc,maybe even 500, which has somewhat fewer horses, but is actually pretty good loking!
plus it ll definitely ensure a few more young bikers going on to become old bikers :icon_smile:

I recommend you graduate highschool first before you think about a bike.

Re: New guy...

For a small sum of only 10G's I'll let you borrow my bike whenever you want. Drop it as many times as you'd like. :biggthumpup:

what i really mean you should educate yourself more about the decision your thinking about making.. an r6 or a ducati would not be an educated decision.
