Smile New Guy!

Hey Everybody! Just wanted to say that I think this forum is awesome! Very Informative, and very friendly.

I have a question....I don't own a bike yet, but I will be purchasing one soon. It will be my first bike, although I have ridden many different Bikes from Harleys to RZ350...I have decided on a sportbike.

I need some suggestions as to what I should buy as my first sport bike. My biggest concerns are cost (up to $4500 CAN), Performance, and looks. I do not want to buy a bike older than 1988.

I am 6 foot 1" and weigh around 210lbs if this makes any kind of difference.

Thanks in advance!

Steve

Thumbs up

My first sports bike was a Kawasaki Ninja 600. It was great!
You have to look at the rewiews from year to year, no golden rule for the best bike.

Don't hate me cause I like Yamaha. There are so many other reasons to dislike me.

As far as Kawi goes... um, er, well... Uh, I'm not worthy??????

I have to agree here.

I really have no complaints about any bike. The R6 and I just get along great.
