1970-71 Honda SL70, I learned to ride at age seven.
Thirty years ago. Where does the time go?

Build a man a fire, and he is warm for a day. Set a man on fire, and he is warm for the rest of his life.

Everything I know I learned from killing smart people and eating their brains.

The first sportbike I rode was a CBR929 but I learned to ride on my old Yammy 650 cruiser. I finally bought my yzf600r this year

93 Cbr 600 f2 awsome bike to learn on i think! An older 600 bike would be good if the noob had to have a 600, and I dont think you would get tired of the bike anytime soon if it where your first!

zephyr750

in retrospect anything that can fall at 10mph and not require repairs is a good first bike
