Hey guys, my name is Chris, I'm 17 and I really want to get a bike. I'm in VA Beach right on the Chesapeake and VAB line. I was wondering about some of the specifics to getting your license and the procedures and stuff like that. Then, there's the topic of convincing my mom to let me get one... haha

I'm 6'5" 255#. I have been doing tons of research on bikes, but I was told that because of my size, the 250 won't as good of a choice as the 600. I'm also looking at the GS500F. That seems like a good option as well. Thanks guys!

Welcome to SBN! :twofinger


250 probably small. BUT, a 600 supersport IS NOT THE ANSWER

Take a look at a used Ninja 500, or the new Honda 500, as well as some others

I think the SV650 would be a good choice, though some here will disagree

A v-twin is going to be a torquey motor, so that is the main concern. However, v-twins are actually great street motors, tons of fun

For your size u need torque...650 twin.
A 250 would be good for a few weeks or months only.
