Thats one of the best quotes I've read yet about a first bike!

Some people just can't be told.

no thats not what I mean...I know that i have some experience with a 600...

And I know my limits and I do know that doing crazy shit will get you killed. thats why i dont do stunts or anything, i just ride...

I do agree some people need smaller bikes, i have seen a few act a lil too dumb on a big bike...

I know you are all much smarter and more experienced on bikes all together, thats why im taking my time to learn about everything..

going to safety class in march before i get the new bike...

Do you realize that every single person says that? Do you think anyone plans on wrecking their bike?

Look, I'm sorry I'm being rude. I'm not out to give you a hard time, its just that your current attitude is very, very typical. And I've seen where it leads.

hahaha I'm seeing a trend here vash, you should be our official newbie greeter whenever they say they "will be careful" whenever justifying a new or big bike

That role has shifted over time. Those who did it when I got here no longer do, and the same goes for me. Its certainly not for lack of caring but a tiredness of advising to those who have already made up their minds (at least for me). To me they're just looking, usually, for a single vindicator, regardless of the warnings presented. That's a low theshold for evidence
