Witchdoctor, I think you were in my MSF class. I was the one who had never operated a bike before. The one who was made to buy donuts for everyone.
I remember. glad you made it here.

Now that you are here, you have to buy everyone donuts too.

with a very few exceptions, anyone here who thinks they can out ride a properly ridden 600 is full of , most of the people here can't even ride a 600 to its limits, and some of em can't even ride a moped to its limits let alone anything with more , and before you start giving me any chit I am among those who can learn alot and get better because I know well I can't ride my bike to its limit.

I don't think people are saying they are beginner bikes. More stating it is moderately acceptable to start out on a 600. While I would push most to something smaller. (250) There are some people out there that can/do start out on 600's and are just fine, if not better for it.

I think it's all about the amount of risk you are comfortable with....sure you can start out on a 600...but are you comfy w/the amount of risk involved w/doing so?
