Now all the original people that are inteligent and have a good head on their shoulders bearly post, because of the idiot drama on the board. I am by far in no means a experiance rider. I know the basics. I bought a big bike for my first ride because once I get my heart set on something I go for it. But the thing is I didn't get on my bike till after my 2 range class and now I have my licence its full gear and defensive riding.
I agree with you man. I shouldn’t have gotten what I did. I tired a bunch of bikes out all of witch was under 600. I wanted a sports bike because I did not want to get a heavy Harley for my first ride, and I didn’t get a small bike because I was not comfortable on one. Even just sitting on one my back started hurting. I sat on a Buell and liked how you’re leaned forward a little bit but my back was straight. On rockets my back would have been arch and would have ended up hurting me in a long run. I could have gotten a dual purpose bike but I didn’t find my self comfortable on one.RhythmsDJs said:Unfortunately though, you still made a bad decision. Now, I'm not trying to flame you, but your trying to back up your actions with 2 range classes? I'm sorry, but even the full MSF class doesn't prepare you or give you the experience to handle such a machine. You made the decision you did, and I hope for the best for you, but the odds are heavily stacked against you. Sorry, but it's been proven time and time again. All you're doing now is trying to justify something that you can't, and you said that you couldn't shop without your ego/heart (same thing). Please don't end up like what I fear that other guy will. I'm sick of people dying already.
Go for it. Then you can post up there that you'll beat him in the 1/4 mile. I'm sure you have the best power to weight ratio there Also you actually know how to ride a motorcycle and he has no clue.snoflk said:well what the heck Thats it I'm going today and buying one to heck if he can do it so can I

Although I have a b***** bike, I don’t mess around on it. I drive with in my envelope of limitation, and the law. I never did a wheelie, stoppie, or just act squidish. I don’t ride mach one on country roads or fly through a set of twisties. I do not have the experience for that. I won’t even let someone ride on the back of my bike because I am not comfortable with taking on those responsibilities and to me it is outside my envelope. You don’t need to worry about me on my bike. I ride my bike same as my cage, cautiously, and always paying attention to others. I will not be another person victim to the statistic. I appreciate the concern but this is one newbie that doesn’t mess around with that.
The guy I posted about bought the bike as something to go fast on, I bought mine because I was comfortable and something I could have around for a while.
I understand what you were saying, that why I didnt come back with you f-ing f-er or nothing. I am all for suttle conversations on different views. I am familier with that voice inside of my head but he doesn't talk much, I think he learned his lesson after all the really stupid sh*t I did when I was a child. :lolRhythmsDJs said:I can understand that, granted I have my own opinions, but we all make our own decisions. I really wasn't trying to imply or dig on you. Like I said though, I hope you do well with it and it sounds like you have the right attitude. Just be careful, that little voice in the back of your head saying, "ah, lets just try it this one time" can be VERY tempting, even on a 600.
RhythmsDJs said:Ah yes, I hear that. All the many times I really should have bit the big one growing up...remember lawn darts??? hehe
I gotta say, it's nice to be able to have a discussion without it de-generating into an emotional flame fest. People have opinions, that's what a message board is all about.
Past all that stuff, we have nice weather finally, gotta ride tonight!!!
