Alright so, Im probably not going to be able to get a bike for another year or so. That being said, what should I get?

Im 6 5 , weigh 260. I want a sports/superbike. Those two things do not mix. Help me... lol

This is my first bike, so yes Im a rookie. Most people recommend say a 250 for beginners, but Im a pretty large person so idk if that s really the best idea.

Also, I have a decent amount of driving experience. My first car was a manual, and my current car is an e46 BMW m3. I do take it to the track. Im not calling myself Mario andretti here, but I do feel like I have more driving experience than most people when it comes to fast cars.

Also, Im a very cautious person. I would be the last one to try and pop a wheelie the first week of having my bike, trust me. Id take things slow, respect the bike, everything.

Now, what should I get? I love the Yamaha r6, especially the brand new ones (2015). But, they have a 600cc engine, and are pretty fast. Also, Im guessing I won t fit too well on it.

Any suggestions? I don t want to settle for a bike that I don t love. What do I do?

Thanks ahead of time :)

Cars are not like motorcycles ~^~ and you're a BIG guy . . .

Driving a car & riding a bike have little in common !

You should learn the fundamentals of riding ?

Perhaps a large displacement dirt bike.

Then you'll know if you like it !

Be prepared to fall down.

Cagers aren't kind.

:wtf:
