hope you're an organ donor. with the spectacular attitude you're going in to it with, you're not gonna last long.

you'll learn more on a 600 and be a lot less likely to screw up quickly.

Re: New member from AL

Even a 600 is too much bike for a beginner.

Start on a ninja 250 or SV650.

i agree, but you're more likely to get a n00b like that on a 600 than a 250.

sv650 would be a great starter bike but a lot of women complain about the height *sigh*
