kawi

I am all for the kawi ninja 500 as a starter bike. maybe a suzuki GS500... those are nice starters too. Don't go straight for the gold tho, you'll be wreaked if you drop a nice shiney new bike. And as everyone as told me "expect to have a repairable accident within the first year of riding. You're young and I don't know what you exprience level is, just be careful. I took a motorcycle riding course that provided the bike and waived the trip to the DMV to take the test and it was great for learning the hard stuff. So my prejudice suggestion: 500cc are fast enough for learning the first year or so, ninja's have decent torque and are fun :twisted:

Darkninja is right, bikes are way faster than cars. Start with under 5o hp preferably on a good used bike and when you'll have a full season or two under your belt you can start thinking of a really fats bike.

Over 500cc Ninja's,Gixxers or Cbr's are actual racing bikes that will only magnify any beginner mistakes you may make. You're only 17 so take the time to do it right and you'll be riding for a long time.

Take MSF and after you've ridden for a while take their advanced rider course. Track school is also a good way to go further down the road.

take the MSF as soon as you can, before you even get a bike, they provide you with one. A used 500R will cost you half of what a new one would, and it hurts less when you drop/lay it down. Trust me, it is rare that you won't, I just nearly dropped mine yesterday while putting it on its centerstand in the garage. 250R is a good starter, but you might outgrow it fast, 500R is better for some longterm use.

dunno about a good site, lots you can learn just by asking.

to answer the question about top speed: it is faster than you ever need to go. (500R = 140mph)

No question is a dumb question. The more you learn that safer you'll be and the more prepared you'll be when the unforeseen happens. All terribly important for riding.

If you are looking to learn about bikes go and pick up some magazines and start reading. Here are some websites for the magazines I read : Sportrider, Cycle World, and MotorCyclist. These are mainly for sportbikes, but they have good info on other bikes too. Try SoCalSportbike Messageboard its a southern California messageboard for sportbike riders.

I have to agree with Freakinout definitly take the MSF course (California Motorcycle Training) as soon as possible. They provide a bike and teach you everything you need to know about riding, including all about the gears and stuff. :lol:

I hope this helps. Good Luck
