First Bike

[5, 6'' 140 lbs and strong] So it would not be a good idea to start out on a YZF R6 even if I lowered it 1'' maybe two. I do have experiance riding four wheelers. No matter what people say I will still most likely stick with an YZF R6. I'll take the riders couse and get a license shortly after purchase. What your opinions just for the hell of it.

well...what year R6? new one? i hope not...for your wallet's sake. the 600's are getting more-and-more powerful (peeky, twitchy engine) and more-and-more lighter. i wouldnt go for a new r6 as a first bike, but...im not you. some people here have started out on older 600s and they've been fine. they're a better route because they're cheaper, slower, and heavier.

make sure to wear all of your gear, and get frame sliders...best of luck to you
