Well I got a 2000 yamaha roadstar 1600, perfect condition other than some minor visual things. It's my first bike and I feel good on it, my only issue with it is it weighs way to much for my liking. So I'm debating on selling and buying a ninja 650 as a beginner bike. I'm about 5'10 with my boots on(my calf high combat boots) I can't find anywhere near me that has one other than an hour away and I don't wanna waste someone's time if I don't fit it. Would I be able to sit on it comfortably? And is it an OK beginner bike? I have experience with dirtbikes and I've rode the 1600 easily just heavier than I'd like by about 300 pounds. What do you guys think?

Plenty of people have bought a first motorcycle based on that kind of sudden infatuation, or because their friends who ride all had a certain kind or brand of bike. The other kind of rider, overwhelmed by new terminology that sounds like a vaguely pornographic foreign language (crotch rockets and Fat Boys and nakeds?), may end up buying something almost at random. There’s a better way, of course, and that’s being informed about your options and choosing a first motorcycle that’s appropriate for you.

Well, so far I'm between going for a yamaha or a Kawa, I've looked into suzukis but honestly don't really like the brand. But I found a busa and I have a turbo🤠
