I knew I could find it somewheres in this thread..Hahaha.


Most people think that since they have a 600 ss as a starter bike ( or even bigger) and that they havent killed themselves on it after a year that they can ride the out of them.. yeah right!
Nobody, and I mean nobody ride a ss out there in the streets to the bikes full potential... maybe to their own rididng ability limits but not the bikes limit...

If it's your first bike, buy something used. You most probably will drop it.

A used katana will be a decent bike to start on. Any of the newer 600 rr's I'd personally suggest staying away from.

before you listen to some of the posters (posers?) in this thread you might want to go review this thread to see if their distinguished name is on the list and if so, weigh their opinions.

Lots of crashers on this forum - more than any on the seven other forums I visit.

thats not really a fair judgement of someone's character or knowledge. besides, that list was not created for anyone's benefit except for racer x's.

Agreed...

If we posed for the world and never pushed our limits Im sure the list would be alot shorter.

That's right - its never MY fault. Always someone elses, right?

Its a factor, especially if it was a single vehicle wreck.

Some of those guys "pushed their limits" and now we refer to them in the past tense.

Some of us don't want to see that happen to another beginner, like the original poster.

who said it wasnt their fault? YOUR point was that since they had a mishap, they should have no opinion on what a good starter bike should be. that logic is flawed.

oh, and the original poster doesnt give two about what happens to people.

Never said they should have no opinion,

I just suggested weighing their experiences this year against what they post and recommend.

Lots on this forum post based upon their vast riding experiences of riding aaaaaaall the way around the 610 or BW 8 loops a couple of times or aaaaall the way out to the forest or Brookshire and back. Or pulling wheelies in heavy traffic on the freeway.

And thats a lot of experience to build a base upon.

And sometimes, but not about 205 at last count on the "wrecks this year" thread, they even manage to NOT crash.

The OP may not give two about what happens to others, but since he posted the question it sounds like he gives two about HIMSELF.

And some of us do too, so we don't advise getting a SS bike as a starter.

There are more important things than posing and making sure your homies are envious of your new SS bike you know.

a guy went down on a fuggin ninja 250....my point still stands...250 or katana...the guy is gonna fall once...so just get a real nice bike and be prepared for it..

i dont see why he should buy a 250 or katana that he will just get rid of in 2 months for a strong bike with btter performance...
the guy has another thread about racin and which bike is good for racing(600cc cass) so just buy a gixxer 600 or 600rr and be done..happy...a little scratched up after a fallmaybe but happy non-the -less
youre not proving any points except for ours. you should stop before you make yourself look even less knowlegable than you already have.

on another note: you do know that an f4i is a honda right? k5GSXRman?
