Hi! I'm new to this forum. I've been wanting to get a sportbike for a long time, but I haven't really do anything until a few days ago when I finally went to get my motorcycle permit. I'd like to know where should I post for suggestions on what and where to get a good starter bike and gears. I'm currently in college so I can't spend way too much money (just bought a car last year and spent a little too much money modifying it).
I've looked at the Yamaha YZF600R, Yamaha YZFR6, Suzuski GSX-600R, Kawaski ZX-6R... But I think those bikes might be too much for me as a beginner. I'm not really worrying about falling because I race mountain bike, and my car has stick shift. So I know how to "ride" a bicycle and shift manually already.
