my opinion on first bike

I know many people r goin to disagree, but in my opinion anything less than 600cc is a waste of money. I started on a 600 and it wasnt too powerful. I have a lot of friends who started on 750's and it was no big deal. If your worried about dropping it just buy something a little older and cheaper. I just think if you buy something under a 600 u will be disapointed and stuck with it when you try to sell it. Remember when ur buying a bike a good thing to keep in mind is at some point ur going to sell it. So you want something that appeals to other people as well as yourself. Just thought i would share this with everyone

i know if my GF was buying a bike you better believe is is getting a 500 or less.

What displacement was YOUR first bike? I certainly hope you're not trying to minimize her due to her gender... :nono:

no i wouldent let her get anything over a 500 casue she was never on 2 wheels
Once again... Was your first bike over 500cc??

yes my 636 is my first bike.
In that case, a 636 should be fine for her as well... Unless her feet don't touch the ground on one.

not if she hasent been riding her whole life

would you let a person learn to drive clutch in a viper or a junky old thing
There's a HUGE difference between a dirtbike and a streetbike. Male-ness isn't the qualifier for who can handle the larger bike. His first bike was a 636. Why should she be any different? Sorry, gender is *NOT* a qualifier.
