Many of us not only started on a 600, but ride 600cc only. It's no slouch of a bike. I plan on sticking to it for years.

Welcome

I took a similar route like you. I had been riding bikes for years and never wanted to buy one until I could get EXACTLY what I wanted with no exceptions, and naturally it was a litre bike. But to say you would get bored of a 600? My friend, you are sadly mistaken, start by looking up all the records at TWS (Texas World Speedway) and see what kind of bikes hold them.

Def take the MSF course first. And I agree with squoddybody, get what you want as long as you know your abilities and stay within a prudent time frame to improve on them.

In fact, I think this is one of those grey areas when it comes to riding. Often times, there are people like me that have ridden for quite a while and have develped the skills and reflexes to comfortably and safely handle a litre bike but haven't owned a bike. Then when the time comes, the first question is, have you owned a bike? If the answer is no, then automatically you can't handle a litre bike.

Everyone is just going to +rep what they own.

Go out, and sit on each one. See what you can get a good deal on.

All those manufactures are nice.

I'd recommend taking the MSF first and then picking up a bike. CBR F3 600 maybe a CBR f4. I loved my TT600 was very docile down low, plenty of juice to keep up with the bigger bikes if you know how to ride it + you can pick them up cheap and very very comfy.

If you're this surprised about the response, certainly, you shouldn't make a move until you take the course as mentioned. They really put you through a number of exercises that will help you assess your capacity to control a bike, and then you can move forward fromt there.

Welcome.

+1 on the smaller bikes.

I've been riding 600's for 5 years. And you know what. The better I get, the faster they go.

I retract my statement since you already feel comfy on a 1k you seem like the perfect candidate for a real bike.

Such as http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Turbo...QQcmdZViewItem

Nothing like boost to help the newbie how to ride
