    my little brother would teach me how to ride...and make sure i could do it right before attempting to let me go take my test...

    and i live at an airport, so i have plenty of space to ride...even at road speeds

    No!! Most new riders who have accidents were taught by friends or family. Take the MSF class and learn how to ride properly.

    An old FZR would probably be alright for a first streetbike, but take the class before buying anything.

    when you guys say "accidents" what are you mainly referring to?

    what are common newbie mistakes?

    A common newbie mistake could be anything, from running off the road to dropping the bike while sitting still. My advice is to take the MSF it is an invaluble experience

    Take the MSF and have your brother ride with you to give you pointers.

    The MSF is a great test and all but I don't think it gives very good real world experience and that's what beginner riders need. Ride with your brother. Get the feel for the bike and what it's like to ride on real roads and not just a parking lot. Be sane and smart.

    And a 93 FZR-600 is an alright bike for a beginner... Although I think a F2 would be a better choice.
