too good to be true? looks immaculate, cherry red paint
my friend picked up a 2000 yamaha r6 for $2900
wouldn't a 250 be kinda slow?
thats too good to b true
seeing as how this will be my first bike, i think i will take the advice of the pros and start off easy on a 250 so that I can learn to ride properly without killing myself and endangering others
if the opportunity arises, I'm going to get a 600 for my first bike
just don't get in the mentality that fast = cool and you should be fine. A lot of people just go 60 in a 25 here in a college town, and that's what gets you killed
it was dropped once... gas tank scratched up a bit.. been 3 months.. runs perfect
That's a good price.
you first bike should be a turbo busa. And the first time you ride, do it at the drag strip. I think thats too much. A budy of min ebought his for $700, and sold it three weeks later for $600.
its not like that man, just cuz u go slow doesnt mean u'll be fine
what are u gonna do if ur cruising at a high speed and a car suddenly cuts u off?
wut are u gonna do if ur going on a curve and a car in the opposite direction goes in ur lane?
besides, its just harder to learn how to ride properly on a 600 (wut ive heard)
is it me or does the spec v have a bit too much body roll
cruising at a high speed is cruising at a high speed, regardless of how powerful of a bike you're on
does going fast on a 250 and going fast on a 600 have a difference? It's all about using your head and riding within your limits
oh and Short Bus... the FZR 600 was sold to another guy..
yeah its true.. at the msf course.. we used these crappy honda 150cc ers i think.... WOT and i could still handle it very well.. the 600s weigh alot more.. so even if youre going slow, turning is gonna be a bit harder
the brakes and handling on a 600cc bike is generally MUCH more responsive than on a 250 cc bike
in other words, the 250 will forgive u for ur mistakes... the 600 will just kick ur ass
I can handle it
are you still working out?
but nothing really changes in terms of weights
thats great that ur so confident
but what is the accident rate for first time riders, especially on a 600cc sportbike? im thinkin its incredibly high... what makes u think that ur THAT good that u wont be a statistic?
btw i find it funny that almost everybody thats posted in this thread is korean
because I'm not looking to get a sports bike for the speed or the cool-ness factor
and I'm not a speed-junky. I see lots of guys doing wheelies and stuff in heavy traffic around here
besides, everbody says 250cc and 500cc is great for beginners, but the difference between 500 and 600 is only 100cc.. what makes 600cc so much more powerful than 500cc?
my theory is this.... if you have the money get a 250/500cc to learn on and then get something better (750/1000cc) when you feel comfortable
but some people cant afford to buy a $2000 bike and then later a $9000 bike... they just get a $5-6000 600cc and learn on that and keep it
