I'm just gonna say that motorcycles are great, but open up doors that will allow you to kill yourself faster than almost anything else.
If you haven't been riding dirt bikes or anyhting previously, take a rider training course first. You won't even need to buy a bike for it, as they will normally provide one and teach you basic controls and operation.
If that took, go look for something cheap. Older cruiser-style bikes can be had for fkn pennies on the dollar, so check CL in your area. Once you get it, go back to the rider training place you went to and take the level 2 course with your new hog. They'll teach you emergency shit you'll need to know and it will probably save your life at some point.
Now go ride. Put as much saddle time in as possible. Once you're sick of that bike or fuck it up, get another one that's more what you want, as the first bike will probably get trashed learning.
Just don't like telling people to get bikes without reminding them it's completely different, you don't just get on and ride and expect to make it home. Please go learn from a pro first, it could save your life.
And this right here is the type of stupid fucking dumbshit thinking that will get you fucking killed.
Don't just buy a fucking gsxr600 because ECB survived it and Anathaema is talking shit.
Read my post towards the top. Use your head. Learn, then get a total cheapo beater pig first. Then learn more, get comfrotable and THEN get a rad bike once you're comfortable. Don't let your macho desires sign your face up with a highway at 80+ when your grill is ground off up to your fucking gygomas by asphalt or your legs amputated by a tree it won't matter how fucking cool you are. Never forget that and never EVER listen to stupid fucks spouting off about "Oh, I learned that way and I'm alive" as there is a right and fucking retarded way to do everything and only you can ensure your own safety.
From the most chicklike dude on NS, that's a fucking laugh. Why don't you stick to knitting, poetry, Tori Amos blogs and crying into pillows because you seriously fucking blow horse cocks when it comes to giving advice on motorcycles.
