Thank you!!Reckless01 said:what i dont get with the whole "start small" argument is why do people really give a shit. I mean when you give smart ass remarks like "gluck not killing yourself" etc...you obviously dont give a shit....so why worry about it. That was "A"...."B" is the fact that an EX500 will still go triple digits.....what are we talking about?? if an idiot will take fast corners or try wheelies he will do it on an EX500 or a CBR1000RR or a Busa.....nature makes idiots guys.....responsibility and common sense makes good riders....Ive said this 100 times if i said it 1 time I started on a 1000cc bike when i was 17 and i am now 29, i rode Moto X bikes since i was 6 and have been in 1 road accident. I have never understood the point of beating a person up over their choices. Not one person has stood at a dealership with a picket sign, instead of wasting your time preaching on the net why not make a real difference, why not go to the dealerships with signs like "Literbikes KILL" or "No More SQUIDS" i mean it is a message a lot of you believe in with passion that burns inside you. Make it a life mission to have laws passed that keep new riders off SS bikes. That'll work :rolleyes. How about this for the answer to this post...
Sounds like a good deal man, you sound like a smart guy enrolling in the MSF course and learning to ride. I know you will hear about the gear and im sure you have planned for that too. Enjoy your newest habit bro!!
Welcome to SBN by the way...try and ignore the background noise on here it gets loud from time to time.
I think what you actually meant to say was "I started on a 50-80cc bike then, after 11 years of experience on that and other, more powerful motorycles, I jumped to a machine that had at most 10-20 more horsepower than a modern 600, along with more relaxed steering geometry, less overpowered brakes, etc." I mean really, someone who's spent most of their life riding, especially if that time was spent on twitchy two stroke racing machines, buying what would today be considered a sport-touring bike is a little different than someone who's never ridden before hopping on a racing motorcycle that's faster than your 1000 in every way except roll-ons.Reckless01 said:Ive said this 100 times if i said it 1 time I started on a 1000cc bike when i was 17 and i am now 29, i rode Moto X bikes since i was 6 and have been in 1 road accident.
