best place is to look in the for sale section. keep an eye on craigslist as well. Dont be afraid to ask someone tips if you find a bike you like. lots of people will go with you to scope it out if your serious in buying.

First of all, W E L C O M E !

If you are dead set on getting a 600 supersport bike, maybe look into a newer GSXR 600. They have a switch on the handlebar by the throttle that will basically de-tune it so you don't get full power. That would be very helpful for a first-timer. Even the smaller bikes (GSXR 600, CBR 600, ZX6, R6) have a LOT of power. They can get away from you quick if you don't respect them. You might also consider something like an SV 650.

As far as being new, we all were new at one point in time. Ask all the questions you have. This site is FULL of awesome people that will do whatever they can to help out.
