Learned the absolute basics on some beat up 250cc in the MSF course I remember the way I would identifiy it was by the big dent in the gas tank. The bike I really learned on and still am learning from is my '95 CBR 600F3. This bike is so perfectly balanced I dont see myself getting rid og it anytime soon. I do want my next bike to be a Buell Firebolt. That will be a good contrast between import and american bikes.:2cents:

I taught myself how to ride on an ex-g/f's brothers 80's Kawi EX-500 when no one was around. It took me about a week riding through the neighborhood to get the basics down pretty good.
The next bike I rode was when I bought the ol' Ninja in 1998. :cool:
It looked kinda like THIS
