Re: GSXR-600 Starter bike?
The 600 is my first street bike and its been an absolutely awesome bike to learn on. I have about 10 years of dirt bike experience beforehand so the shifting, braking, acceleration, etc. all felt completely normal and natural.
I say definately go for the 600 if you are really comfortable on a dirt bike. I really dont think its the bike that gets you into a lot of trouble, I think its people not being used to having 1000% situational awareness on the streets, I swear, you need to be able to see 5-10 seconds into the future to ride a street bike.
Go for it, get gear, take it slow. Dont be a Valentino Rossi on Main St.
