what part of town do you live/ride at?
It is alot of power but with the clutch as smooth and easy as it is its really no problem i just need to watch my speeds now its easy to cruise at 60 and not notice it at all ha ha but its not that this is the only moto i've riddin just offroad mainly and its been awhile since i rode but i absolutely love it close to or almost as good as ......i mainly try to stay around my house in baytown and ride some of the back twisty roads right now till i grow some nuts and take it out on the highway for a spin.....and i plan on taking the msf course in a few weeks or early next year b/c classes and work dont always mix lol

So congrats and be careful.
thanks bro i've been taking it easy, but i read the write up why you shouldn't get a 600 at first but i feel its like with everything if you ease into it one foot at a time it should go smooth and you'll reap the rewards of being a better rider RacerX does have a point in all seriousness it is too much power that i dont need right now but i have hi-tec govorner switch called a brain and a wrist so i think i can keep it rubber side down but at least i'm not pulling a super squid riding with barely no gear i've got an Arai ("tommy" Gun Rx-7) Helmet JR textile jacket getting a leather one soon, gloves and i'm getting a pair of either sidi verts or corsa soon along with some riding pants or the pads that are like football pads under your jeans. But i gear up everytime you never know when it'll save your life

A 250 will not kill you as fast as a 600. Stating otherwise is retarded.

Sure, accidents happen to everyone, and having your head on straight is the key to survival.

But saying the choice of bike is not part of the equation is stupid. 250's are lower, lighter, and slower. All these factors combined make them absolutely safer than 600's and up.

But for me, the big question is, what bike do you want to drop? A $1000 beater you own for a few months to get the hang of things, or a brand new 600 supersport.
