New member here, looking to learn (A LOT!!!)
Hey! My name's Alexis and I'm looking into eventually owning a sportbike. My boyfriend is also looking into getting one. I know almost nothing about bikes, but I would love to learn. I have been browsing the site and I just thought I'd say "hello".
I won't be getting a bike for a couple of years, so I'm not too worried about which bike in particular I need/want as a beginer, more about what size engine and weight I should be looking for. I'm 5'6 about 140 lbs, and very umm... top heavy, if that matters for weight distribution at all.
I'm not looking for a racing sportbike, but more of a riding around town, almost cruising type. I just want to go fast (highway speeds) and feel the wind rushing around my body and being out with the elements. It just seems so enjoyable. I love the look of the sportbike, so that is why I am interested in getting one vs. another kind of bike.
I'm open to all suggestions, so please, help a newbie out?
