G1K or R1 for newbie

I suggest you save yourself a ton of money and buy a simple pine coffin instead. I think they can be had for about $400.

josje: You would probably have obtained better answers if you had introduced yourself as being new to the board, so many yrs of riding, presently riding such & such a bike with the thought of said two bikes for said feeling or reasons & asked others their opinion.

We are flogged with 15 to 18 yr old people that have never riden a m/c & the gleam in their eye is such & such a 600 or possibly 1000. So now you get the hang for such answers. We try to help non-riders to aim for something more sensible along with the MSF course first, but they argue that they know best. Just hang onto this board & note the strange questions on what bikes the beginners are thinking of.
