I have a newb friend who is looking at getting a Triumph Sprint RS as his first bike. I don't know much about them, except that this seems like a LOT of bike for a beginner. 955cc?! Yikes. Thoughts??

I've been trying to talk him out of it. He's throwing down the usual arguments. I'll grow out of anything smaller, I need something my girl and I can ride, etc. He was thinking about a Suzuki 650S, which I thought was a decent choice, but now this.

Your newb friend is nuts. And outside of making Sportbikers look even worse in the public eye, I'd say let him buy a 955cc bike and get hurt or maimed. Some people have to learn the hard way.

My first bike IS a SV650S... I don't even want to think of starting out on anyting b*****... it takes every bit of my attention to not let it get away... I kinda wish I'd started smaller... but I love this bike... and damn... with that lower fairing... looks SEXY AS HELL :leghump
