I'd tell you that it is STRONGLY recommended to take the MSF course!!!! Seriously!!!

Captain M and I took it out on Ft. Bend County Fairgrounds, 59 South of Sugar Land (me twice now, since 15 yrs old). I've heard really good things about Awesome's class, too. I believe they're a sponsor or something on this board. Check into them! Don't do the Harley class (unless you really want a Harley).

There are plenty good bikes to start out on. Two roads to go down with this: 1. look for a nice used bike. 2. if you really want a new one, just remember it'll probably get dropped. Good bikes to look at, feel, sit on, see if you're comfortable (remember, you'll be on it for long periods somedays).

Suzuki GS500
Suzuki SV650
Kawi Ninja 250, or 500
Bandit
etc. (I'm sure others will chime in with more suggestions)
welcome, and also seconding what TXGX1K said. i took the MSF at Awesome cycle's, and before that i had 0 riding experience.

and on that note i want a new bike already, buy my '01 GS500!
