Newbie with off-road experience

I'm 16 and I have been riding quads for about 6 years. I currently have a 05 TRX 450r. I am interested in riding street too now. (when ever I get the $$$)
I've been searching around a little bit and I want to know what is a good bike to start out on. I'm almost 6 ft tall. About 170lbs as of now....I"m not sure what nike I want/need. I don't want a busa of course.... But nothing underpowered. I saw something about the MSF? Or something.....I guess that's like the ATV safety Course that im about to take? And how does the Motorcycle license thing go?

lmao. That's alot. I looked through some of the stickeys and stuff already too.

First, welcome

Second, congrats on picking the right subforum for an intro. The stickie threads at the top cover all the usual "how do I start" questions so dive in there first.
