Alright guys, again appreciate the concern. Didn't think I'd catch so much flak on here lol. Like I said this isn't my first or second bike. I've rode some bad fast stuff and been in the dirt since I was 4 years old. Been wrenching on my own stuff since I was 14. I 100% understand your opinions and agree that the most responsible way of progressing would be 250/300/650/or the Kawi 400 to a 600, then down the line a liter bike. Especially to people who are brand spanking new to riding. I've always thought of myself as a pretty gifted kid. A super fast learner. I always got straight A's, and graduated high school a couple years early. Always been smooth and competitive with the fast guys on the track. Not trying trying to self promote here, I just feel I have enough control to not push the issue and that my abilities as a rider are good enough to handle the bike. I know it's not nearly as forgiving, but as I said I believe riding dangerously will make you bleed more than anything. If you hit something at 90mph it's going to hurt just as bad whether you're riding a 250, 600, or a 1000. Kinda like guns. Guns don't kill people, people kill people. It's not the machine that'll hurt you (unless you don't do proper maintenance, but again that's your fault), it's yourself. Your bike is only going to go as fast as you let it. If I make a mistake, I'll own up to it and take my blame. We take a risk every time we swing a leg over our bikes, no matter what we're riding. The risk IS higher with a faster bike, I know, but it's up to the rider just how much higher it is. It's a responsibility/risk I myself am willing to take. No I wasn't peer pressured in the slightest. I was just ready for more. I should've started on something with more power, 250 in my opinion was a poor choice for someone with prior dirt experience. YZ450 is loads faster than the Ninja.
I found the bike for a great price. Did some research and heard nothing but great things about the K5 K6 and how it was the base BMW used for the S1000RR. It's a pretty clean machine. Has no signs of ever being dropped, prev. owner says it never has but you can never be 100% sure. Has some scuffs on the belly of the fairings that you'd never see unless you're on the ground. Looks like they bottomed out on a curb possibly. Other than that the fairings are perfect. First thing I purchased was a Shogun kit with the frame sliders, spool sliders, fork sliders, and bar ends. Has original tires so Q3's are on their way.
I appreciate the feedback. I don't aim to sound stereotypical, but I honestly wouldn't have done it if I didn't think I could handle it. I've said what I have to say. If you still want to think negatively of me then so be it. I'm not going to argue over the keyboard. I'll check around before I post, only have a few questions. Thanks for the "warm" welcome
Ride safe everyone, peace!
