Re: For People New To Bikes (First Bike Stuff)
Another great bike is the Honda Nighthawlk 450. I learned to ride on that bike, great bike and very easy to ride. I also like most people dropped it in my garage and dropped it on the street on a slow turn out of a parking lot. These are things that just happen, to everyone. A nice GSXR would cost some money to have fixed, but with this type of bike (nighthawlk) it dosn't matter. After that I bought a Honda CBR 600 1992. This was another great transition bike because it had some power, but not that of the more modern 600's especially Suzuki. I rode this for a couple years and now I just bought a 1997 GSXR 6 and I love it. The 1997 has more power than my Honda and is much more nimble. Starting out slow is just the way to go and if you are told anything less than that person is crazy, or just watched Biker Boyz and thought it was real. In real life your "life" is on the line and a 600 will take it from you just as easy as a 1000 would. You have to respect the bike you ride no matter what it is. A 6 is big enough for anyone, I have never seen someone that is so good that a 6 will just not do, and when I hear this type of bull shit that a 6 is just too small, thats all it is, is bull shit.
