Convince me to get a 250r over a 500r...

Hi all, I'm 16 and I have my license but I'm not super experienced on the roads (yet i haven't gotten into any close calls at all, etc). Should I go for a 250 for my starter bike, then eventually end up selling that 6 months to a year later to get a 500? Or start out on a 500?
I'm 6', 140 pounds. Thanks

250 vs 500

Well, it really depends on your level of maturity. If you've got a level head on your shoulders and you're willing to take the time to learn properly, (MSF course, read some books, take some advice from more experienced riders etc.) then a 500 should be just fine.
