Help - Buying first bike?

Hey guys,

I am new to riding, and looking to get into my first bike.

I am looking to a get into a used 99 Ducati 750 SuperSport in Yellow.

I am 5'8. Is this bike going to be too tall for me??

Also,

I know you guys hate new guys that come in here looking to get a first bike that is over 250cc. I realize that. This is the first bike that I will own. I have had plenty of riding experience on my Dad's Harley and friend's sport bikes...Buell Blast and Gixxer. I have my riders license. I am now looking for my own first bike. Maybe that will help...

I also read that this Ducati model is a little less powerful and fast and a better handler - making it better for beginners.

You should be allright the 750ss is not as agressive as the Ducati superbikes.

Will 5'8 be too short for the bike? It sits at like 33 inch seat height i believe.
