Default Maybe this has been asked, Input on getting a 600 as a starter bike

Friend of mine and sp_dynasty is selling a 2003 GSXR 600 for $3500, that is cherry, and has a few small modifications. Its a gorgeous bike, but at 115hp, I fear turning myself into asphalt confetti, who else has purchased a 600+ as their first bike?

He had said he needs to bleed it, and I trust his word.

Its out in Morris IIRC, I'd love for someone else to come with too if I decide on it.

I started with an R1.

I truly believe if you're not an idiot, you could start on any bike. Just take it slow and get used to the throttle.

Brave man!

I started on a 1980 CB750SS. It was slow. Went up to a Katana 600 and then to a Katana 750. If you go 600 you're going to want more relatively quickly. I agree with going bigger right away and just don't be stupid.

It's been almost 3 months and at least 6,000 miles. Loved every second and thankfully I haven't even come close to having a scare yet.

I'm sure it'll happen eventually. Also thinking about going back to the track one last time to redeem myself.

My first bike V the zrx1200 :-) but yes I agree don't be stupidly stupid and take things slow and you'll be fine. Best way I got use to the power was getting on the highway and in 4th or 5th gear while your cruising roll into the throttle to feel the pull, once your use to that drop a gear and so forth.

If you know how to ride, and can be mature about using it responsibly until you get some good seat time in, then go for whatever the hell you want.

I started on my 600. I never road a bike before, jumped on and taught myself. Took it easy for the first week and then on my way I went.

Been riding for 6 years and have only owned 600s. Personal opinion, even a 250cc can get you in trouble in a hurry. I do believe that 250cc someone can "out grow" in a season or two. However, I have never felt the need to own anything else other than 600s. Plenty fast for me!

My first bike was an 01 gsxr 600 I bought new. I had a ton of fun with that bike. Hell all manufactures say sportbikes are for experienced riders no matter the cc.
My 01 600 was just as fast as my buddies 98 zx9. 600's are a little more forgiving to rider error. I do mean little.
I vote do it!
