new rider, need advice
Hello. I'm planing to get a bike in the next couple of weeks, and I need some advice. I'm looking for a good starter bike, but at the same time, a sporty bike. I've been looking at the Suzuki GSX-600's, TL1000R's, and Honda CBR600's. I also found a 1991 Suzuki GSX-R 750 for a great price. Are any of these bikes any good for a fairly new rider like myself? Before I get any bike, I'm going to attend motorcycle safety corses and get full safety gear(helmet, gloves, leathers). My dad use to ride touring bikes through Europe, when he was in the millitary, but it been a long time, and he had a touring bike, and I not realy shore if it's any diffrence or not. I have also been racing cars scence I was 16, and I know there two totaly diffrent animals, but that to I don't know if that would make a diffrence or not. Any advice woud be greatly appriciated. Thanks.
P.S. I'm 24, 5'9" and 155lbs.
