I have been riding bikes since I was a bout 12, and now I'm 23. I rode a 600cc Naked when I was 14, driven 750, dirt bikes and up and down the ladder. I'm NOT a Pro have never owned my own bike, but always been around friends with bikes and they let me taken them. I been wanting to get my own bike for some time but the road of life is always UNDER CONSTRUTION. Finally I can get one and want to know if I should start with a Honda 600cc, but I'm really after the CBR1000. Advice greatly appreciated even if not followed.
