So then ignore all the advice given by those with YEARS of experience, and get a twelve million cc rocket.

See how you do.

EDIT: I'm 6 4 270 and weight hasn't had shit to do with my riding progession.

Will it with yours?
I doubt it.

One of my riding buddies is about 250lbs riding a 600RR. He has somewhere around 20 years racing expirience under his belt. Everytime I think i am getting fast enough to keep up with him, he just rolls on and leaves like I wasnt even there.
Pick up a 500, or an SV650. Or alternativly, you could post this in the stunt forum, they are always looking for wrecked bikes there.

I love these guys that come here asking for advice but don't want to listen to shit. That attitude's gonna serve your really well as a rider, keep it up!

You're wasting our time, go do whatever the hell you want, just don't bother posting a story about how you crashed or got arrested or (insert another classic Newbie mistake) in a month or two.


ps - I weigh exactly the same as you and have as much fun riding my '66 Suzuki T20 (250cc 2-stroke) as I do a new CBR, GSXR, ZXR, YZF, blah, blah, big bike, so on...
