Precisley how do you assess that, over a message forum involving someone you have never met?

How in good conciousness, can u tell a fresh nub to 'practice self control' and 'ride within your limits' when you have zero knowledge of their ability and recommend a 600+ SB?

You talk about 'self control' knowing the for the mass majority, they have little to no concept of that (and belong nowhere near a bike, much less 600+ cc of sportbike).
Further, we can watch if/when one of these people takes themselves out of the gene pool and see how ya'll mourn them etc, etc.

Well if you really "love" them.. lol! Like what does love have to do with it?? are you going to set someone up on something they arenít ready for if you donít love them?? Thatís pretty ignorant of you isnít it?

Loved or not, itís about aptitude and attitude... they either have it or they dont.

They tried but its hard to offset a giant like the Ninja.

As stated before, we don't get a lot of european bikes here.

...or because too many, stupid squids think they need/have to start out on a 600+ cc sportsbike and too many more retards telling them all kinds of BS reasons why 250's are too small etc.

well based on this logic, a more experienced driver in a car, truck, boat etc.. would never have an accident... i mean if they had just listened to you and started out with a VW bug they would have never been harmed...
