Ok first of all im not totally new to riding. ive had lots of dirt experiance
lol, dirt riding doesn't do ANYTHING for street riding at all, so don't even try to say your not new. I've been riding dirt bikes since I was 10 and it didn't do anything for me. everyone here will tell you the same, there is no similarity between the 2 types of bikes. dirt riding is so easy and so forgiving, street riding is not.
....anyway theres no way in hell im getting anything but these 3 bikes so dont try and talk me into a 250 ninja or whatever..
we were trying to say in a polite way that your a dumbass, your gonna pay 8 grand for your first bike? pretty much everyone drops there first bike, usually making a mistake with the kickstand or misjudging a corner, or trying to turn really sharp while going very slow, its not a dirt bike so don't try that, the newer the bike the more expensive the plastics will be to replace, a set for the bikes you mentioned is insane, I think its something like 2g's. an older bike is cheaper and doesn't matter as much, plus if you got the 250 you would learn to ride much better and faster then you will on the new 600's, thats a fact.
....anyway i know what these bikes can do and i know how to respect that so dont give me shit about how im gonna drop it and what not
if you can't even give proper respect while typing to people trying to help you then there is no way you can give proper respect to a streetbike.
to sum it all up
new 600: $8-9,000 for the bike, if you finance then figure atleast another $3-4000 for insurance, plus atleast $1000 for proper gear, and when you drop it figure atleast $1-2000 for damages, so thats min. $13,000 you should plan on having around realisticly.
an older bike: if you get a 250 or 500, or if you just get an older 600 figure anywhere from $1500-$4000, insurance can be much cheaper on the smaller bikes, plus in many states like mine if you buy the bike outright then you don't need insurance, but if you finance you must have full coverage in any state. still need $1000 in gear no matter what cause landing on pavement is way harder then landing on dirt plus there are cars trying to kill you. and when you drop the bike, if you decide it fix it you can find used parts on ebay $300-1200. so with a smaller, or cheaper bike you can get away with as little as $3,000 to get started thats ten grand you can put aside for a bike you will upgrade to, only now you will actually know how to ride it.
just makes sense to me, out of curiosity how old are you? are you just getting one of these to keep up with some trend, cause thats not what riding is about.
