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 sorta agree with this. driving a stick car gives you a good feel of how a clutch works. on the other hand i knew how to drive clutch on a bike way b4 i was even allowed to drive. adn i also never had a car that was automatic. automatic takes the fun out of everything.
As you get older you will learn to appreciate an automatic.
I just like most riders knew how to ride a motorcycle before I drove.
The clutch is one of the hardest thing to learn on any vehicle.
It should be taught on something with at least three wheels.
Some are naturals at this and wont take allot of training and others have a hard time with it. (Male or Female) :2cents:

Well a person should be able to drive a stick shift car first before thinking about riding a bike!
Or at least play Gran Tourismo in automatic mode. :)
