Pay attention newbies! Despite what ya buddies tell ya (iff'n it ain't at least 1000cc, it ain't da bomb!), midsize bikes are nice, 'specially if you're in the 150 lb. range!
Someone once noted that whenever they went to a track day, they noticed the young guys all had 1000's: the guys who had been at it a while had smaller bikes.
As Nick Ienastch used to say, "Any Gomer can twist a throttle."
Need a second opinion?
Kenny Roberts used to say "anybody can ride a big bike fast-it takes a skilled rider to ride a small bike fast."
