Re: new rider here

Because it's not forgiving . What are the chances that you'll actually listen to advice you're asking for ? A simple search will tell you that a super high percentage of experienced riders will tell you that a super sport is a stupid choice for a first bike. Is the google broken on your end ?




Why am I thinking troll ?

Both of those bikes have so much power, most all new riders cant control it.
They can put you into situations you simply are not experienced enough to handle.

Get something smaller that wont kill you.

Don't listen to these "girls" as you obviously know better than anyone what you can handle. Forget about the 750 or 1000, you wont be happy.

Re: new rider here

Do you have any Motorcycle Riding Experience?

More than likely you'll be frustrated, and/or hurt yourself by starting on a 750 or 1000cc Suzuki, of nearly any brand bike that size for that matter.

Post any experience you have had, and also tell us what part of the globe we're talking about too if you don't mind.

You came to a site with mostly all experienced riders and racers.

I'm still wondering if someone is posting this to be funny or something.

Read thru some previous posts, and you'll see people that have got ripped a new one when asking about starting out on a bike like the 750 or 1000.

Op have you taken the time to look around this site before joining ???

There is 'stickies' directed at noobs regarding bikes that are user friendly ... That's where you will get most of your answers.

We get asked the same questions over and over ... and guessing that you have asked if a supersport is ok as a learner bike you already know that it's a bad idea ... Just hoping that someone will tell you it will be fine .

Well that won't be happening here ...

Re: new rider here

haha nobody is disturbed. Just straight forward honest answers. Super sports are not designed for the new rider. (6 months is still new) You wont be able to handle the power delivery efficiently, and they are too easy to go wayyy to fast on, leaving an inexperienced rider little valuable time to react and counter hazzards in the road. If you want a sportbike real bad, stick to a V-twin 600 class. Ninja 650 or Suzuki sv650, otherwise get yourself a ninja/cbr/yamaha 250/300 and learn the ropes on that. Most of those smaller bikes reatain there value. As long as you dont skip it down the road a bunch of times, when you are ready to step up, you will likely be able to sell it close to how much you bought it for.

Because you don't know how to control a motorcycle properly, and both of those have quite a bit of torque. The 1000 does not need much effort to spin the wheels when you don't expect it. I can't tell you the number of times I've been riding around normally at like 30-35mph and had the rear tire spin a little if traction wasn't optimal. Why? Because you're not always going balls-to-the-wall enough that your tires are at a perfect temperature to have peak grip. Thus, you have to be on your toes and, most importantly, you need to know how to react to the tire sliding or spinning. All it takes is a bit of panicking from something that simple, and you can be lowsiding or highsiding.
To put it into perspective, these bikes (gsxr 1000) produce more torque at 2,500-3,500 RPM than a 600 or your bike makes at peak. On the dyno, I made between 55-60 ft-lb of torque at 3,000 RPM.

2006 GSXR "250" with an Akrapovic full exhaust and a flashed ECM. 162whp, 77ft-lb. Slow-lane certified
2000 Honda VTR 1000. Practically a 250.

Yes I drink coffee ... No I havent drank too much today ,

Should I be passionate about rider safety , yes , and so should you as a fella rider ... Why make riding anymore risky by stepping up to a very capable machine too early

We promote safe riding here , and offer sound advise to those wise enough too use it ...

Re: new rider here

I read the last 3 posts that were deleted. The advice that was given is on par to what you see on the GSXR Facebook groups;buy the biggest/fastest sport bike made and go from there,you'll be fine and financially,you will only have to buy one bike.

Thats not what this forum is about,and I (as well as the rest of the Staff) will not allow potentially deadly advice be handed out such as what @RASCALWF posted. GTFO with that shit dude...

Re: new rider here

Also lets not forgot most new riders (<3 years ish) will drop/crash their bike. If you buy something expensive and with a fairing you are going to want full insurance cover which is also expensive for a new rider, and then even more so once you claim!

He has a bike, but he hasn't been riding for long. However, this is one of the main reasons I tell people to buy a cheap-ass bike. There are few worse feelings than dropping or laying your pretty bike down and having to pick it up and cringe at the damage done. And this often makes people even more scared to ride, and they learn even less. You bin a bike that's ugly, you simply hope that you can ride it home.
