Question new rider looking for first bike *help

Okay so I've wanted a sportbike for the longest time, even since I was younger. I've done a bunch of research on these bikes and have barely scratched the surface. I reall really want to buy a gsxr 600 maybe from the early 2000's and I can't spend more than 3000 on the bike. This is a dreamer of mine I just kinda need some guidance.

Battle Ground, IN? Really? I used to live in Kokomo and commuted to West Lafayette daily, right through your town. Even had my first big crash pretty close to there, right outside Americus on those beautiful (for IN) sweeper curves.

Anyway, peruse the New Riders forum, there are lots of threads on this same subject. Basic guidance: take the Motorcycle Safety Foundation class, get your M endorsement, always wear at least a helmet and preferably more gear, and be wise in your first bike selection. it won't be your last.

i think you should go for honda cbr 1200cc. its the best for you, but you will need to get control on its pick-up and speed.
