I've been riding passenger for years but I got tired of waiting for someone else to ride with. So, I learned to ride by myself. I have a 450 Nighthawk right now but I want a CBR 600 F4i. Any sugestions for graduating from the bike I have now to the bike I want?

Welcome.

That is a pretty big step up in performance but if you take it easy at first you will pick it up nicely.

Think I should get a "step up" bike in between? If so, any sugestions?

tygerider,

As long as you respect the F4i, you really shouldn't have any difficulty. My recommendation is "go for it."

I think you would regret buying a step-up bike. Get the F4i but just respect its capabilities.

I agree with the others. Learn to ride on the Nighthawk and get the F4i.

Welcome to the forum,
I'll agree get the basics down on the nighthalk and after your very comfortable with it get the F4. What color do you want? I see you live just outside of Spokane. I know a dealer that will give you a great deal.

Red and Black. So, you live in Spokane I see. I'm just north about 10 miles or so. Maybe you could ride with me sometime?

What color is yours?

Let me know about that dealer.

Thanx
