Hey Guys/Gals -
First time poster - long time listener! Whew! Where do I begin? Well, I've wanted a sport bike for quite some time, but never have got around to getting one. I really don't know how to ride very well. Whatever the rung right before 'novice' would be - would be me.
Last night I decided to go for a leisurely cruise when I ran up on a couple of sport bikes. They looked fantastic by the way! '04 R1 and, a GSX-R 600. I knew the second I rolled next to them, they would want a piece and, that's fine by me! We ended up pulling over and talking for quite some time. They were super nice and super cool. I wouldn't go as far as to say as cool as I am, but, I'm sure you get the picture.
So now to my dilemma - what type of bike do you think would best suite the beginner? And, would it be better to buy a new bike, or save the greenbacks and just get a slightly used one? I'd like to get a GSX-R 750 - but, that is a whole lot of bike for not a whole lot of rider. My plan was to progress as a rider and 'grow into' the sport bike. I'd hate to get a bike only to want something with a li'l more zip in the near future. I'm mainly judging my choices thus far by the looks of the bike. I'm such a poser.
Also, right now I'm in the 'kicking the idea around' phase. I'd just like to learn more before I make an executive decision about it one-way-or-another.
Thanks in advance for any helpful tips or suggestions.
