Welcome to SBW:)

And as for getting a new bike for a first ride, I say go for it. Just get something that's in your budget. If you can get a new bike, do, if not get a used one. No matter what you decide to get just practice some self control, and you'll do fine.:) Also be sure to spend some of that money on some safety equipment.

I bought a new bike for my first street bike (but I've been riding dirt bikes for years).

Have you ridden any bikes?

Welcome. :cool:

Buying new first is okay as long as you take your time and get used to riding. My first bike was a new VFR and I never wrecked it and traded it with about 24K miles. Insurance can be quite expensive on the new bikes so keep that in mind. :)

Be the CBR...feel the CBR...buy the CBR600 F4i!

Don't listen to those wussy's that'll try and steer you toward a 500 or 250. Get whatever you like, and ride it responsibly, within your personal limits.

Welcome to SBW. :)
