First off Biggallemore and ...Dude are you NUTS!!!??? I don't care if you have some rideing experience. a BUSA is WAY!!! too much bike for you right now. You will get hurt so fast I promise.
You need to start out on a 98-02 Gixxer 600, R6, CBR 600, Katana 600, SV650(S), or a new SV650(S).
Here is a thread you NEED to read: CLICK HERE and please read the whole thread, and any link in here.
Also: look thru the forum and see what everyone thinks on a first bike.
My first bike was and is a 900. got it a couple months ago... Im 6'2 200 lbs. Its just the right height for me and the power is kick ass.. But im extremely greedy. And faster is always better. But this bike will be just dandy for years to come. Shes fast.. But a Hayabusa would be faster...lol....Ill keep dreamin
