What cookee is saying is that there are around 5,000 threads from noobs asking what's a good starter bike. As we are growing tired of posting the same answer's it would be easier for everyone if you clicked the search button and read some of the said 5,000 other treads on this same topic.

Holy shit!! I'm 6', about 160, and thought *I* was skinny. Everyone tells me to eat more cuz i look like I'm about to die! Well, that'll help your power-to-weight ratio for whatever bike you get . I got a Ninja 250 to learn on, and have no complaints about it. I even grew to like the way it looks. Look into it, the ninja 500, and the SV650. All are great noob bikes. Just try to avoid the 600+ race replicas.
