    Default What Bike is Best?

    Hey wassup ladies and gents? I'm planning to buy a bike this summer, but i'm not sure what to get. I'll be new at this whole thing, so what would be the best suggested bike for a newbie. I was thinking something on the lines of a Honda CBR 600? Hows that bike for a newbie? And is the speed and handling alrite?

    Thanxs Nelly.

    depends on your skill and maturity (no offence, but ive seen to many babies killed)

    have you taken the rider training courses?

    do you actually like riding?

    until you can definitely answer yes to both of those, id suggest an older, used bike, like 93 or 94.
    it wont cost as much, it wont hurt the wallet so bad when you drop it, and if you decide you dont really like riding that much, you wont be stuck with payments on a 10k bike.

    a lot of people learned to ride on dirtbikes or dual sports, theyre often a lot more forgiving than a full out street bike, and theres no plastic fairings to chew up if you drop (fairings = $1000+)

    a new 600 class has way way more speed and handling than you will ever use on the streets, hell, most people wont use 80% of their sport bike on a track, as they havent the skill, training, experience, and reflexes to match the bike.
    basically, a new sport bike is equivalent to a 700 horsepower race car on the street, if you figure your ever gonna use it all... your wrong.

    not trying to be discouraging, just realistic

    Get an older bike as your first bike...besides older bikes are very easy to repair/maintain. Chance are you're going to drop it. I crashed my first bike twice, and have dropped my 650 once.

    Me, I'm saving up for a Ducati!!!

    Yeah, the sales guy said me and him could take both bikes out, and trade off so I could try ride both. Sucks to be you b/c you don't have your bike license...
