    Don't worry....I'm still a noob and I have a 600RR...and I'm still breathing

    Folks around here are just gonna be concerned that you get the right training, wear protective gear, and respect the power of that bike

    Ride safe!

    I think most people on here would agree with me that a 2006 CBR 600 RR isnt a good choice for a first bike. Mainly because you have no experience so there's a possibility of you damaging the bike and hurting yourself.


    If I were you, you should have gotten a used bike from like 1999-2003.

    Older bikes are just as fun and are eaiser to learn on, and if you do damange it, it wont be that big of a deal since its old/used.

    Yes it is more likely to fall as an unexperienced rider I have rode motorcycles for years ( dirtbikes) I know street bikes are an whole nother world but I am a careful person who isn't going to jump on the bike and try to do 160 MPH I have respect for myself and by bike and it is possible for anyone to go down on thier bike new or experienced I understand and been living on forums for the last few months getting all the info I can I think as long as I respect the bike and the power it was I will be ok Im not going to try anything i am not comfortable with I think even twisties are out of the question for me for a while I just want to get some basic riding practice and go with some people that will teach me how to ride correctly if I wanted to be a jack ass I would go hang out with the idiots on thymes or in prov...

    I understand no one likes newbies... their dangerous and most of the time are just trying to show off but there are some of us out there who are not like that I have wanted a street bike for years and now I have the ability. I know I am going to get alot of crap for getting the bike but I am in love with it and no one is going to make me regreat my decision, although I am sure I will cry if I do go down my friend bought a Gixxer and was being a jack ass squid and ate shit on a wheelie and went to the hospital I learn from peoples mistakes. I will never attempt a wheelie I just want to ride and feel the wind in my face but all you people (vets) out the who knock on newbie just remember you all were there at one point to

    Jenks - you're cool. Don't listen to that whackjob. Ride what you want to ride, ride how you want to ride. Would you really take advice from someone who calls themself a "BadBoy"? God, I hope not. Stick with BigRed, he may be ugly but he's sweet as marmalade. Just watch your cornhole.

    That's my whole point as well. I dont like hearing about fellow riders getting hurt.

    So Since you admit you are a newbie I wanted to offer you the advise I got when I first started. Yes I understand everyone has different opinons.

    Some people will tell you to ride whatever bike you what, and some people are going to tell you to start small and work you're way up. You need to be educated enough in this sport to make the "proper" decision for yourself.

    Good luck man!

    haha... sure everyone can go haha... I might have to wait until after my trip to texas so it might not be until a month from now or so but I will let you guys know ahead of time and make sure you guys aren't busy. Thanks again to everyone trying to help the newbie instead of bash him.
