I've been reading alot lately about newbie riders buying sportbikes and everybody trying to start them off on a easier level. I agree 100 % with that advice. I don't believe inexperienced riders should start off on a sportbike. This just got me wondering what everybody thinks of my decision. I started riding 4 years ago on my Yamaha tw200 street legal dirt bike. Since then ive ridden harleys, a honda valkyrie(sp), and a couple gsx-r's(point being just some different experiences on different machines). I passed the MSF when I was 16 and now after 4 years of experience I will be purchasing a 2002 gsx-r 600 as my 2nd bike. Im a safe rider and know my limits and how to control them, so good decision or everybody think im just a dumb squid?
