you want to throw some extremes out there like a z06 or cobalt... lol

next time do the BB gun or the 30-06 one.. then we can skew off into a gun debate as well.

I know the motors not as strong in the ninja 250 but my Kx250f wouldn't make a great learners bike either. Even a 250 can hurt you.

one of my students ran his R1 (first bike) into a building the first time he touched the throttle, my guess is that he didn't want to go that fast or that far or thru a building, but he did. but it's only a guess.
students in my classes don't want to crash but they do.

and students have even died in a class, think they wanted that?

my guess is prolly between 20-30mph.

nobody has any real stats on bike crashes/size/type, except ins. co's

wonder which has higher inst rates a 600 cruiser or 600 sportbike. wonder why.

What!? When did this happen, in MSF due to a motorcycle accident?

You're with awesome cycles right, i think???? I saw the fence that was down when some girl on a 250 or something when through the fence. crazy, but I didn't think of anyone actually having died from the training/training accident? !
