What bike to buy???

O.k. I just got my license March 2002 and I'm currently riding a 750 honda magna cruiser as my first bike. Now I took a CBR 600 F4i for a test drive and loved it. My problem is I don't know what to buy 600? 750? 1000??? Some people say I'll get tired of a 600 some people say not. Any suggestions. I"m about 5'7" 190 lbs.

I'll sell you my 01 F4i. 5800 miles red/black. Perfect condition not a scratch on it. Red Micron Carbon fiber pipe. Two new tires. let me know if your interested.

I'm 6'3" 265 pounds and the thing has plenty of power for me. I'm certain it would drag you around just fine.

Thanx for the offer but I was planning on buying in late winter/spring of 2003.

I also got my license in March of this year and bought a '97 CBR600 F3.

I'm 5'10", 185lb's and I think I'll be happy with the power of the bike for quite some time now. Just open it up to 8-10k rpm in most of the gears and you're be reminded how much it's got left to play with.

...then again, I could just be a lightweight !

What year is your Magna? There's something about the upswept pipes on the 87-88's that I really like. One of these days I'm gonna get me one.
