Bikes


#1

Well ive always been really intrested in sport bikes and such, so im thinking i might buy one, im a new driver, only thing similar to a motorcycle ive riden was a 125cc dirt bike

So any experienced riders whats a good beginner sport bike, but still has some power? (even though these thigns fly nomatter what)

a CBR 600CC is a good starter bike.

I’d recommend not getting a “beginner” type bike… you know something like a little 250 or 500 "sporty’ bike. I definately wouldnt recommend something like an R1 or Busa… but one of the 600 or 750’s. Just remember, if your on a race bike your probably gonna race… and do something stupid. You can kill yourself on a dirtbike if you acted stupid… but I think something in the 600-750 range would be fast enough to scare the shit out of your for at least a couple years but not so fast that you’ve gotta worry about pulling the wheel off the ground by accident at random times.

Friend of mine just died Friday morning on a bike. It was a GSXR1000…I think I’ll stick to cars. Those guys that run at the strip on bikes are nuts. One guy went 5.05 last time out…on a STREET bike!

I’m thinking about buying a Harley but MD is right 600 or 750 is a good place to start

i have a freind who bought a suzuki sv650 for a beginner bike and he said it was a good beginner bike but they dont have a real aggresive sport bike look

I absolutly loooove my sv650s. Its a 650 Vtwin. has all kinds of torque but nota massive top end. I get walked by the GSXRs all the time but its still competetive. I can out corner the 600-750 GSXRs because I have the torque to pull harder thru the corners but they always walk me on the straights. The sv also comes in 2 3 models now, the sv650, which is stripped down and has no fairings, the sv650s which is the one I have with the upper but no lower fairing and the sv1000s which looks just like mine but is a 1000. Mine is a 01 model and is carbed, the new ones are injected and the fairings are a lil different in design. One cool thing is that you can buy one BRAND NEW for about 5800 + finance. You wont find another bike competetive with this one for that price. I would deffinately reccomend the sv650 for a first bike. heres a pic of mine.

I miss my CBR929RR…

Serously, if you ride smart you’ll be fine no matter what you have. I rode with ALOT of people when i was in Cali. One of them started riding on a '99 CBR900RR and only crashed once, but it wasn’t his fault. Another younger kid started out on a CBR600RR and totaled it the next day. Got ANOTHER 600RR and totaled it the week after.

Here is the picture life story of my 929…
