Question What do you guys think?

I need advice on what kind of bike I should get? I don't have a lot of experience on bikes but I really want to get into it. Some say start out with a dirt cheap bike but they look like crap. And I dont want to kill myself on an R1. I was looking at the YZF600R. But Suzuki also has some cool looking 600's. What do you guys think? I really do need help with which one to choose!?!

Excellent first bike.

Read through some of the threads in New Riders Forum for more info on what to do and get before riding.

I rode a yamaha srx 250 for about 2 weeks, then realized i should have bought something bigger. I then went and bought a 98 yzf 600. Its suited me really well since.

Look at the Ninja 500. I have never ridden one, but I hear they are very reliable, fast enough but not too fast, light, and have low seat height(if you are short).

I bought the Ninja 250 for my first bike and I wish I would of gone with the 500 instead.

used 600

You don't have to buy junk. But, I would suggest getting something used. Like a mid 90's ZX6R or maybe a n FZR600... GSXR600?

Get a little experience before buying a new bike.
