Brand new rider. Please help me choose my first bike!

Hey ladies and gentleman, brand new rider here and would really appreciate the help.

A little about me, I am 26 years old, just got out of the Navy and landed an awesome job last week. The problem is that I commute 35 minutes to work in the morning, and when i get off it takes me almost 2 hours to drive home in my truck, and I have to fill up every 3 days

I have always wanted to ride, but it has never been a priority of mine until now due to the reasons stated above.

I am 6'2" between 250-255 pounds. I would like to be comfortable when I ride and feel like I am riding a bike, not a tricycle.

I am going to register at a local community college to get my license as soon as possible. Keep in mind that I am not going to do any racing or anything insane, but eventually I would love to learn how to ride fast and keep this bike for long time. I am interested in a sports bike and not a cruiser. I would love to get a brand new or used bike from a dealership, not a bike on craigs list. My budget is around 6k-8k.

Thank you so much for your help and I cannot wait to start riding and getting home from work faster
