Ulric, if you have any personal questions or comments feel free to address me directly rather than wait till I leave and let your spineless ways control your mouth..

I think Racer-X and I finally arrived at the fact that the testing needs to be revamped to accommodate those who can from those who canít.

Iím satisfied with that..

It sounds to me like you got your feelings hurt then it turned personal for you..

Has it in fact become personal Ulric??

I didn't read every post so sorry if this has been said before.

You said you have no experience accept for the MSF? Was that with street bikes or bikes in general?

If you have no experience with bikes at all, In my opinion you should but a dirt bike, you can get a old xr100 or something similar for a few hundred bucks and go ride it in the woods or a field for a couple of months to get used to how a motorcycle in general operates before you ever get on public streets.

I grew up riding/racing motocross and enduros and I believe it made a huge difference. My first street bike was a 91 zx7 that I bought senior year of high school (94) and if I hadn't been riding for years already probably would have been very bad. More than a few times it almost got away from me, especially gassing to hard exiting corners, had I already not been used to the back end of a bike trying to come around on me i might have been a grease spot on the rode. And with them coming up on you as well.


Cliffs

By xr/rm/cr/yz 100-125 crash couple dozen times in dirt for a few months

get ninja 250

You're the one who's acting all hurt and panties in a knot, I've just reflected and commented on stupidity.

<shrug> I'm still waiting on REAL justification on why a fresh nub should start on a 600+ over a 250.

p.s.
Seems to me someone already asked for your 'experience', and as I've pointed out. You really haven't provided squat
to these forums yet. Where'as I've put plenty about myself out here...which would seem to negate your pathetic attempt at being the E-thug. <shrug>

Much better than trying to remember which one is the clutch and which one is the brake when a cage pulls out in front of you:/:

And you can get a helmet for a dirt bike cheap and wear jeans and boots on one, if you go down in the dirt you won't tear yourself up to bad.

+ there fun as H3ll

Acting? Hurt? Your perception is like none other Iíve ever encountered.

The only stupidity Iíve witnessed here today is a few keyboard jockeys handing out advise as if they know each individuals aptitude or attitude. Without knowing those two vital ingredients I think itís stupid to advise anything.

i'll stick to my broad assuming style, it's proven to be true. ask any motorcycle salesman how many of the 600s he sold come back wrecked, 90+%, ask insurance agents.

Seems to me, in this situation in this thread.. it would be better to recommend the safer vehicle/option then would it not. Sort of common friggin sense, you work with the information you're provided. Typicaly referred to as the 'lesser of two evils'.
Consider then that most the 'keyboard jockeys' recommending the safer route have more time/mile experience than those recommending the larger displacement bike. And of course it's our only real option considering the weakness in our own state/nations licensing system

Would you give your son/daughter that had never driven before a Z06 or a Cobalt for their first car? That should answer your question

therefore those handing out the advice dont know if it truely applies or not.. they are just handing out global advise.

so what have you accomplished? you played it safe?

My co-worker who rides a ZX14 told me his insurance dude said that 70% of the ZX14 insured by his company has had claims made against the policy ... take that for what it's worth... I'm sure Candie could tell us some numbers about 600cc sport bikes from an insurance industry POV
