It's possible, I started on a 01 600. I used good judgement and alot of self-restraint. I was keenly aware that if I crashed, I wouldn't have the money to replace the bike plus buy new helmet and gear. It all depends, but I wouldn't have dared consider starting on a 750 or 1000. That's too nuts for me, plus I realized I wouldn't learn anything doing it that way.got a 600/750 as there first bike...i mean there first eva bike....and would you say its ok for other newbs to get a 600/750...thanx

"do as I say everyone, but dont do as I do"
im in meriden...not to far..my mom lives in hamden....i used to be in fair haven alot...hey whats the name of the dealership and where is it?I rode a dirtbike like once or twice and my freinds moms ZX-9 in a parking lot one time. This year went out and bought a brand new 600. I'm taking the MSF courses and taking it slow, as long as you respect the bike you'll be fine. The hardest part is just getting it moving and getting used to being on two wheels really. For me at least. Now I'm getting more and more confortable riding the bike everytime I take it out. I still baby it and plan on doing that for a long time, hell I havent even broken 50 MPH yet on it.
I'd recomend doing what I did, my freind who knows how to ride took me to a parking lot on a sunday and showed me the ropes. When I felt I was ready I got the permit and rode around the back roads in the neighberhood. Just down to the gas station to get smokes and took it back home. Hell I still remeber when I was afraid to take the bike over 25-30 MPH. As long as you respect the bike and take it VERY EASY you'll do just fine. Just be sure to wear the gear and use your head.
Btw, what part of CT do you live in? I'm in the New Haven area of CT when you do get a bike let me know I'll go riding with you. Or if you need a good place to go for a bike I can take you to the dealer ship that I bought mine at.
