i done did that i told him not to go with a new bike... i told him to buy a old used bike or at least not a brand new one..... and i told him not to get only liability on a bike he is still paying for.... but hey i didnt tell you the worse part about him..... he wanted a 1000cc bike for his first one luckily i talked him down to getting a 600 lol..... but hey he is just one of the type of people who cares more about looks and what people gonna say, over what is really reality. But i guess all i can do now is pray he don't f**k things up for himself...

Oh well he will learn when hes upside down on the note after he wrecks it. Some friends have to learn the hard way.

i know alot of people that started on 1k's and busa's. no problem with getting a nice bike for your first bike. he just needs to control his right wrist and ride within his capabilities.







now next year when that bike is old news... then its time to stunt that

i get tired of other people under estimating another riders capibilities...for those who are jus dumb and crash their bikes (600's-1000's) most likely they were doin something stupid tryin stuff beyond their expirence level...i started on a 600..and yea im sure i had my close calls be thats goin to happen to everyone on any size bike..and 250's are jus a waist of money unless you can't grasp the basics of a motorcycle, but for those who catch on quick can easily grow into a 600 ..now the fact he bought a brand new one is a lil hair brain.. tell him he needs to try to pay it off before his first wreck and he wont feel as bad...there are those who have and those who will
