Just asking...
What makes a good first or starter bike is one that won't bite a ham fisted or un-skilled rider.

The SS600 are all basically race bikes with lights, which means they are quick steering, high powered, light, quick reacting to whatever inputs the rider gives.

Which means they are all the wrong stuff for a new rider, especially one with no experience at all.

I've seen people endo, loop when they grabbed to much throttle, tuck the front end at low speed, and many other "noob" mistakes... all of which on a Ninja 250/500, GS500, or even an SV650 they would have gotten away with.

rx,
The world in which I live in far exceeds the realm in which you live in. Maybe you live by statistics and the average mean of those statistics, but I DO NOT!
I am not a statistic, and nor will I ever be. My life and the decisions I make on my life are different from yours or anyone else on this forum. No one lives the same way or makes the same mistakes. You might be on here getting your rocks off by cutting and pasting articles, statistics and the likes of that, but do not ever, and I mean EVER, QUESTION MY INTELLIGENCE AGAIN! I agree to be disagreeable but insults will not be tolerated. The OP asked for opinions. Thats all. No one says that your opinion is correct and everyone else's is wrong. Remember there is no wrong opinion. You can not prove that a 250 is a better starting bike. Safer? Yes maybe! But you know the risk you take everytime you get on that bike anyway, no matter the size of its engine.
Maybe your answer is politically correct, but that does not apply to everyone. I started on a 600 know people who started on 750's. Just a matter of that person.

rx,
the only thing u have proved to me and the rest of this forum (the ones who's heads are not stuck up ur ) is that you are a bigot! An old fart whos way past his prime, never could be what he wanted to be so he thinks he can teach others. Dude you are a fake and a phony!

If your old a$$ gets off by trying to prove people wrong on a bike forum all day, then more power to ya dude!!!!!! I made the decision to ignore you and ne thing you post. From this point forward you are non-existent to me! So vamoose disappear you s.o.b!
