    Its my first road bike, and I just got it yesterday. Its a 1999 suzuki bandit 1200. Yes, I know it can be stupid to get such a fast bike as my first one, but I respect the bike and know to take it easy until I get used to the bike. I already put 100 miles on it yesterday :).

    Nice looking bike, enjoy! And please tell me that you are borrowing someone else's jacket until you figure out what you're buying, and not riding gearless!

    I am 6'3" so I fit on the bike well. I was having a hard time to find a bike that I fit on comfortably
