No one said anything about discouraging him from riding; altho it is a simple fact that a 600SS is not the best first bike for an absolute noob, and getting some basic training if you've never ridden a bike is highly recommended.

Reading comprehension is also a good skill to master in life.

And telling someone to not "ride out of their means" is pretty interesting, when a new rider has absolutely no idea what that may be.

600 636 675 all fall under the 600 Super Sport, and "we" call the 1K's liter bikes...

there are also standards, nekkid bikes, cruisers, touring, sport touring....

3 ys huh? After you survive 35+ years riding, do call and let us know your outlook on kids and sport bikes, ok?

He sounds like quite the intellectual. I wouldn't take any advice from a 13 year old. That's the worst age a kid can be, thinking they know everything and are completely invincible.
