So if I get a 600 should I get a straight 600? Or a 600r? And what is the difference?
I'm not really sure what PV is saying here either....
PV? Ninja vs 600R?
Anyway, let's not forget the FZ6, I've seen plenty of them for around $2500
With the "motorcycle" experience that you have at this point, the lil 250's would be a waste of money, as was said before you are already to big for the bike, if you did try a 250 you would outgrow(experience wise) in a month and be looking for something else, but being that you already blew ur wad on the 250 you'd be stuck with it until it was sold which you'd prolly lose money on it and end up with some heap
Just get a tame 600 such as the SV650, FZ6, ER6N, Ninja600/650(just not the R model), Versys or possibly the CB500......which ever you choose just don't ride it like an idiot, don't push until you get some good saddle time under your belt
Example: a few years ago I helped the neighbor kid(15 years old) build a GSXR600 for when he turned 16...I told him a 1000 times to take it easy until he gets the feel for it, don't let "600" fool you!! It's got power!!
Well I hear him take off one day(it was Fing loud) and he came back about 2hrs later pushing the bike and carrying most of it in pieces!! Luckily he had all his gear on and wasn't hurt but he had only made 1 1/2mi down the road before eating it on a humped up sweeper
