    Insurance cost will depend on how good your driving record is, where you live, and a whole bunch of other stuff. You can go over to www.Progressive.com and www.bike-line.com to get an instant quote or if you can wait a few minutes for an agen to reply, you can check www.geico.com .
     
  3. im about 6'2, 220. i wanted a 500 or less since i had no bike experience. my dad bought me an 04 r6, so i didnt let anyone twist my arm. if youre responsible, get what you think youre comfortable with. imo, ill be with my r6 for a couple more years (least i hope.) if it was my money, id go with a ninja 50 or a gs500f.

    every insurance company is way different, i got full coverage w/ farmers and they go by cc so if i had a supersport bike like a gsxr600 my insurance would be cheaper (i have a sv650s) how do you like them apples
