I don't understand the whole theory of starting off w/ a small bike...Size has nothing to do with starter bikes. If you can't control your right hand you shouldn't be on a bike. Unless you are talking about tracking. B/c that would put you in different classes.
I took everyones advice and got a cbr600f3 and grew quickly tired of it. Within 4 month of riding I was on a gsxr 1000 and wondered why I didn;t start on this bike?? The same holds true for dirt biking as well! Just get what you can afford and put some sliders on it
. But watch that right hand.
And if you want to take it another notch get the Duc 1198, it made my 07 r1 feel like a 600.
