Complete big/tall newb needs a first bike
I'd like to get some input on a good starter sport bike so I can budget for a purchase in Jan. I'm selling my 99GT mustang, and although most of the $ I need to put towards school, right now I'm estimating I can put about 4K towards a bike and all the gear I need.
A little about me, I'm 24, never riden a motorcycle in my life. ha. Although, I have ridden quads. I'm 6'4 and about 210lbs and fit. Lastly, I'm taking the MSF this month...
My main concerns are finding a bike that fits my stature, getting all the safe gear I need, and of course, a safe bike, but one that I can grow into. Although I wouldn't do it at first, it would be nice to be able to comfortably carry a passanger once I'm comfortable. I dont know what if any beginner bikes accomodate 2 people well?
So what are my options? Is a Ninja 250/500 good. Is an F4i too much? Does your body weight make a sizable difference in a selection between say 500/600/650?
